“Beer + books = lazy weekend heaven”
Review of The Spotty Dog

The Spotty Dog
Ranked #21 of 92 Restaurants in Hudson
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 January 2017

If SD were a person, she'd be a total dreamboat.

Cozy, packed to the rafters with a comprehensive and beautifully diverse book selection, and armed with an arsenal of quality local beers on tap (and a solid gluten-free beer selection), it's the perfect place to park your hiney on a lazy Saturday afternoon.

Sometimes staff can come across a tad surly, but are actually total sweethearts.
Wish I could live there.

I love the Spotty Dog!! Great beers on tap and cool concept!! However, I'd like to see them expand the bar portion and have less books!

Enjoyed a drink and a chat in this friendly bar plus bookstore.....no shortage of topics when the place is full of classics

I seriously love this place and I want to inquire how I could open up a business that emulates this in a town by me. I love books, I love beer, I love that there's a children's section and the place is kid friendly! There's also art supplies! Such a cool concept and definitely worth visiting. I could sit in there for hours which is actually what I did with some friends and my 3 and 7 year old. My 3 year old son sat down on the couch and read a book and played with stickers for a long time! Even he was relaxed in the book store and he's usually super rambunctious!

It's a bookstore that sells art supplies and serves beer, wine and snacks. There are a few tables in the front and a nice old bar on the left side of the wall. The atmosphere is low key and quiet and the craft beers were good!
