Don't bother eating here. We stopped for a light dinner after a very long drive home.
It was recommended by a local dental hygienist. Forget it! Chicken potpie had two small pieces of chicken and very few vegetables. The powdered mash potatoes were definitely out of a package; the carrot on the side was over cooked, while the broccoli under cooked & uneatable. The Caesar's Salad was tasteless..Couldn't wait to leave. Paid too much - only to get home with stomach aches.

Was up in CT visiting friends and saw the reviews about this pace. Was extremely disappointed. The service was terrible with the staff being overheard complaining about working conditions. Waited forever for the order and when it came it was bland and tasteless. Wouldn't go again.

I upgraded this from average to very good, mainly for the decor, which is 60s art deco. The food is pretty good, especially the donuts, but the service is abyssmal. A bunch of kids stand around with nobody showing them what to do.

There is always a wait at this diner...but that is the sign of a great eatery, in my opinion. We have breakfast here whenever we are in Southbury. Everything on the menu is great, my favorite is the eggs benedict...also, definitely try the cinnamon donuts!

Dottie's Diner gets the accolade yearly from Connecticut Magazine for the best donuts in Connecticut. Now that Krispy Kreme has vanished from retail stores in Connecticut, I would concur.
