Super cute place. Fun decorations. Huge servings. Good value for amount you receive . It gets crazy busy but worth the few short minutes of waiting

I recently found out about this restaurant at first i loved it but, my second experience was a different. Upon arriving, we both ordered the steak hoagies with Mayonnaise. The fries were kinda soggy and undone (the waitress didn't give me a choice to choose the other fries she acted in a rush to get us in and out).(The only... More

The sundae and banana splits are awesome and large. My wife and I shared a sundae and it was more than both of us could consume. Took it home and finished it off over the next two days. Service is friendly.

Enjoyed a fun lunch experience and good food today at the Pokey Dot. The decor makes for a fun atmosphere; the bright colors just make for a happy time. But the food is also very good and large portions. I always enjoy the chicken salad for my lunch and can always (easily) take half of it home for the next... More

Waste of money. Food comes out cold. Found hairs in food. Bathroom was always unclean. The meals always took way too long to come out and were extremely over priced. Would NOT recommend the friend.

The atmosphere is fun and quirky. If you haven't been there, it's worth the visit just for that. Food is excellent, and service is too. They are famous for their giant ice creams.

The food here is always delicious and plentiful! The menu has such a variety of choices and it's ALL good! Their desserts are huge and always worth taking part of your meal home so you have room for dessert!

Not sure why it has 2-3 $$$, because it is affordable. We had the chicken wrap and Reuben sandwich with fries and it was very good. The desserts look incredible, but we are not dessert people. Fun looking place, even the bathroom mural makes you smile. Fun for kids too. It was very busy and some groups left because they... More
