Dog-Friendly Patios with Exceptions

The following restaurants have patios in which your dog must be on the outside of the patio railing. This may make it a little more difficult to dine with your dog, however, they are still great options.

Patio Rules and Common Courtesy

  • Be sure to leave your dog on a leash. This will keep them, and others, safe.
  • Bring a water bowl along. While a lot of places have them available, some may not. Keep your pet properly hydrated on your outing.
  • Make sure your dog socializes with other dogs well. There is a good chance that there will be many other furry friends enjoying time on the patio.
  • Make sure your dog doesn’t bark a lot. People don’t want to hear endless barking when they are trying to relax or enjoy a meal.
