This is worth the wait even when they are super busy. The food is delicious beautiful presentations of classic diner food. No matter your appetite you'll find great food at reasonable prices for the whole family! The Customer service is second to, we'll NONE! They treated our party of 7 like royalty!

This is an adorable 50's style diner! The food was fine, but if I am ever in the area again, I would probably order a dessert. The banana split a fellow patron ordered was big enough to feed several people! The restaurant was packed, and we were seated in the back room - I wish it was decorated as nicely... More

What a cute little place to eat lunch! The building is small, an old 50's diner, which has been updated to a fun decor and is clean inside. The wait staff is pleasant and seemed to enjoy interacting with the customers. Lots of items on the menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We had sandwiches and salads, which were very... More

This was our second visit and whereas the first trip was ok enough for us to want to come back, today was a definite miss. We were seated in the "back room" (where the decor is more shabby 80's than the fun front section) and for starters, the a/c was either broken or not keeping up with the warm day... More

Doesn't anyone clean this place? The bathrooms are worse than what you'd find at a gasoline station. The staff doesn't wear hairnets or caps to keep their hair from falling into food. Waitresses have a habit of touching the food on the plates when they pick it up from the kitchen serving window. Man it is gross there.

Took family to eat at Pokey Dot. Approximately 6 of us. We got our table. Drinks served within 5-10 minutes after being seated. Food order placed after drinks served. Food served within 20 minutes. Waitress stopped by to refill drinks and asked if we needed anything. She was very polite, courteous, and friendly and interacted with the kids very well.... More

If you are traveling with kids, you have to stop at Poky Dot and try their ice cream creation. Just one sudae is enough for the entire family! Wonderful place.

Looking for something different while traveling through Fairmont, I asked my oldest son, a WVU graduate, for suggestions. The Poky Dot was THE suggestion for Fairmont. The place was packed so we waited for about 20 minutes, not bad for a warm and sunny Sunday afternoon. Once seated, we were greeted by a very sweet and friendly server. My husband... More
