A fun little diner that our daughters love. Cute atmosphere and friendly staff. Our daughters ordered the "puppy dogs" (mini hotdogs) with french fries -- and they came in little doggie bowls. We were surprised that the blue cheese dressing I ordered for my salad was an upcharge -- and the server did not mention this upon ordering. She was gracious and took it off our final bill when my husband questioned it, though. Bring your jacket if you visit during the winter -- it gets a little chilly when the doors are opened. Looking forward to going back.

I was surprised by the negative reviews. The Poky Dot is not a gourmet restaurant. It has more like a dinner menu, with colorful, whimsical decor. The food is not healthy- lots of calories and large portions. But, it is tasty! We've ordered burgers, the turkey reuben (ask to have dressing on the side- it had way too much), barbeque sandwich, and desserts. Sandwiches come with homemade potato chips or fries. The portions are large, so you might want to consider sharing. During three visits, our waitresses were always friendly and efficient.

Love the atmosphere and friendly service. Ice cream sundaes are HUGE and the kids will love the s'mores....you put them together at your table yourself (roasting the marshmallow over the flame they bring you). Love the prices too. Fun!

Have been here numerous times. Always satisfied. Never a bad meal. Service has always been great, with friendly staff. The cheesecakes are delicious, especially the peanut butter pie!

Wide variety of diner - type food. Lots of dessert choices. The decor is appropriate for a kid's room-- pastels and clowns. Very strange since it isn't really a kids restaurant. Very much a quantity over quality situation.
