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

We have been here several times and enjoyed the food. It's a clean 50s style restaurant. Neon lights all around with an old record jute box. Table or counter style eating with white tile.

The Poky dot is well decorated and has a 60's diner type of setting. There is a front room which is most often used but overflow will move into the back room. The big breakfast is too big for most people to finish alone. The Banana split is too big for four or five to finish. I was told that... More

This place has style. It was recommended by a friend who said that they often go here for lunch. The restaurant was very colorful and was decorated for halloween. The tables were cleaned and set up as soon as they became available. Each hamburger was about $10. We tried the southwest, raspberry kiss and french onion burger. Each of these... More

The atmosphere is cute and retro. The menu is pretty large with appetizers, breakfast, lunch, and entrées. The dessert portions are huge. The service is very friendly and nice. The food is so so for the price.

I use to frequent Poky Dot with my mom about 10 years ago, and this place was amazing. Now, not so much. It looks cute and inviting from the outside, but don't be fooled. This is a grossly overpriced diner.

Good food, great desserts! Gotta try the cheesecakes! Very unique and family friendly dining spot! We visit at least once every month or so?

We visiting West Virginia for a geocaching event, and a friend had booked our dinner event here. Looked like the place was quite busy! We were glad they had a back room. The dinner was very good but the ice cream... OMG! I've never seen so much ice cream. Enormous! I ordered a sundae to share with my 5 year... More
