My boyfriend and I ate at the Spotted Dog with another couple. It was my first visit, but the others had eaten there before. I ordered the Mediterranean pasta. It was a very generous helping, but not particularly flavorful. I would not eat it again....More

I didn't know that vegetarian chicken was so good! I have moved up from salad, theirs are great, to other vegetarian dishes. They have a nice variety and the desserts are worth saving room for!

Overpriced. 20% tip automatically charged. Bad service. With The prices they charge they think they are a 5 Star Resturant, FAR FROM IT!!! Will never go there again.

Both food and drink here is top of the line. Love the fish tacos, all kinds of salads, sandwiches and plates with lots of excellent vegetarian options. Lots of draught beers to choose from, also wine and cocktails. Friendly staff.

It is much more of a sit-down restaurant than a take-out restaurant, and the atmosphere is much more relaxed. I have been here multiple times and...More

We remember when this was Spring Street Bar & Grill many many years ago. It has since turned into a cozy vegetarian restaurant, but with seafood, burgers and other items for non-vegetarians. The vibe is still like a neighborhood bar. The service was friendly but...More

After a meal at the Acme, the Spotted Dog was a nice relaxed venue to catch a game and a drink. Bar and table seating ample with staff busy tidying up to close early.
