“Fun and brightly decorated diner”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Poky Dot was rated top diner in Morgantown Magazine and I was anxious to try it even though it's 30 miles from my home. It was worth the trip and I will look forward to eating there again. Chocolate milkshake didn't disappoint--thick, creamy and delicious. Pulled pork sandwich was flavorful.

“Fun place, great service and a wonderful omelet!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Spinach omelet and a great cup of Joe in a fun atmosphere! The wait staff were all so friendly. If you are in the area it is a must! It was fun to see patrons being served their crazy breakfast on a garbage can lid!

“I courted my wife here.”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

The 2013 Polk Dots is not the 1960's Polka Dots!

OK, maybe the 2013 version is better (or maybe not!)

We recall a HOT sausage sandwich on a hamburger bun and a Coke for $1.25!

Today's sausage sandwich is a wimp by comparison.

The 2013 Polk Dots is kinda like a local Friches, and we expect numerous Fairmont State students still court at Polk Dots

The price is right, and expect Coke and not Guinness!

We recommend for the younger folks!

“HUGE sundaes!!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

The food here is just OK. The portions are big. The pancakes are the size of dinner plates. This place is an absolute must for ice cream sundaes. Huge doesn't even begin to really describe it. The banana split is 9 softball size scoops of ice cream with all of the toppings. This would feed a family of 6. A regular sundae is 3 huge softball size scoops. The decor is totally tacky but makes this place unique and fun. It is 4 miles or so from the Fairfield hotel where we stayed during a road trip.
