When you walk in you see decor by the famous Butch Lee from Morgantown which I just love. It is the decor that makes this place shine! We travel from Morgantown to have dinner here. Please note Morgantown has many, MANY places to dine but none as original as the Dot. The food is great for diner fare! I have... More

To the management...the food was decent and plentiful but the sanitation habits of the wait staff completely creeped me out. I watched servers eating directly out of the cherry dish for sundaes and then touching the toast barehanded. I also watched servers bus tables and then immediately touch the toast without gloves...that is completely unsanitary! Gross!!!! Please don't put people's... More

This is a busy place, and you will see why once you've tried it! The food and desserts are great! The staff is friendly & helpful. The desserts are a work of art, they all look awesome. The banana split pie...yum! (big enough to share)

You have to try the pie! I stop here at least once every time I'm in the area for work. Each time I try something different and I've yet to find a dish I haven't liked! The staff is always helpful with recommendations. Just a fair warning, a slice of pie or even the milkshakes are huge! Definitely bring your... More

I recently found out about this restaurant at first i loved it but, my second experience was a different. Upon arriving, we both ordered the steak hoagies with Mayonnaise. The fries were kinda soggy and undone (the waitress didn't give me a choice to choose the other fries she acted in a rush to get us in and out).(The only... More

The sundae and banana splits are awesome and large. My wife and I shared a sundae and it was more than both of us could consume. Took it home and finished it off over the next two days. Service is friendly.

Enjoyed a fun lunch experience and good food today at the Pokey Dot. The decor makes for a fun atmosphere; the bright colors just make for a happy time. But the food is also very good and large portions. I always enjoy the chicken salad for my lunch and can always (easily) take half of it home for the next... More
