We love this place for the period décor and ample portions of good to excellent food. The he man breakfast is a fun challenge and you have to order the banana split once just to see how big it really is

I enjoyed my first time here. Have heard alot of good things. The waitress was quick and very attentive. The variety of food is great no matter what time of day. You get alot for your money. Their omelets have lots of flavor.

We ordered the specialty candy milkshake and we were so excited about it! However .... We had to watch the waitress who made it ... Lick her fingers over and over again as she assembled the milkshake candies onto sticks.... Disgusting. We were so embarrassed we didn't say anything and we drank it anyway. It tasted fine, the milkshake itself... More

Jennifer, Sorry you received misinformation at all food at The Poky Dot is microwaved. Microwaves are used to warm food as in any restaurant kitchen. We bake all desserts on premise, cook all food on grills, flat tops, deep fryers and ovens. Come in and try a milkshake on us. More

I have read the reviews about the banana splits at this restaurant and had to see for myself. I went there with three other people and got the banana split and I was amazed at the size it was a huge banana split. We all shared this and only got about a quarter of it ate. This is something that... More

I recently took some friends and family to this establishment. It was the second time I've eaten there and Wow! It gets better every time. The food is wonderful, the waitresses are kind. My family enjoyed it! I love the bright colors and the happiness that ensues there.

This a fun place to go and eat. Interior is like a 1950s diner including old jutebox . Good meals and the biggest desserts you have ever seen. Great place to bring kids and friends. A must place to go in Fairmont.
