My daughter (vegan) and I (not vegan) look for vegan-friendly restaurants when eating together. This is sometimes difficult and the results less than satisfying, but not in the case of the Spotted Dog. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. There are a good variety of beers (bottled and draught) and we each enjoyed one we hadn't tried before (one was "Smuttynose Old Brown Dog Ale"). The vegan buffalo wings appetizer, recommended by our waitress, was enjoyed by both of us. My daughter said that the "Vegan BBQ Burger" was great and I enjoyed the "Black-eyed Pea Cakes" (vegetarian) as they were nicely spiced, which for me means hot but not so much as to overtake the taste of the food. Service was exceptionally friendly.
By the way, the burgers & chicken (the real meat kind) are "all natural, hormone & antibiotic free", according to the menu.
It's a pub-style atmosphere with vegan options -- now my daughter's favorite spot in North Carolina! Thanks Spotted Dog!
