Wife and I took two grandaughters to poly dot. Our first visit. Magan, was our more than capable server. She was funny, knowledgeable, and attentive. Place was busy or I should say hopping, since it has a 50's decor and the staff dress for that...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.
