Friendly staff, creative diner fare (e.g. veggie wraps and homemade pot pies!), and literally the best donuts in the state! Dottie's has been around for years, and their reputation is stellar, so be prepared to wait on the weekends. Delicious food, including many creative twists...More

A bad waitress can really ruin eating out. Our waitress bawked at our request for separate checks. Meal was fine. At meal's end, she once again showed her stuff by shortchanging me $2. Maybe she was anticipating her tip!

We had a really good breakfast! It was our first time visiting Dottie's and we weren't disappointed. Friendly waitress, food came out fast and was yummy. It was very busy with no empty seats.

For a diner it is expensive. They do have great donuts which I pick up often to bring to work for birthdays. Chicken pie is good but again, I think prices are high. Decor has 1950s vibe.

Stopped for breakfast to go. Picked up 1/2 dozen donuts (half cinnamon sugar half chocolate) and a blueberry muffin. All were very good and we would go out of our way to return.

The food was good but the service wasn't that good. The waitress was nice but she got my order wrong. Their donuts are good but dry.They have good waffles and burgers. Overall it was a good restaurant.

I am up from NC visiting my sister in Waterbury, CT and after attending the Lion's Club Antique Auto Show in Woodbury, we decided to go for a piece of apple pie at Dottie's. I had apple pie a la mode with vanilla ice cream...More

We have been coming to Dottie's Diner for over 10 years, happily eating a variety of meals as "regulars". We were stunned after telling the waitress that the quiche didn't taste right, that the owner refused to take the item off the bill. "It's fine",...More

Service is excellent. Ordered steak and eggs, but the steak was very fatty and chewy. Was hoping that the waitress noticed that the steak was barely touched.
