Dog Friendly Restaurants

Obviously these places ask that your dog have good manners (no barking, don’t steal someone’s food from their plate, etc.) otherwise they’ll probably ask you to leave.   And, sometimes even a bowl of water will magically appear before your dog to enjoy while you eat.

So if you’re in the mood why not check out a couple of the places on our list! Just a heads up though this is only a handful of the places you can dine at. Chances are if the place you want to go to has patio seating you could possibly have your dog with you, it never hurts to ask!

* Please note that even though we’ve talked to the staff at these restaurants and they’ve said dogs are allowed it’s a good idea to give them a call ahead of time to make sure it’s OK to have a dog with you. And, since the seating is usually patio only, you should make sure the patio is open.

    just wanted to let you know that twisted pine brewing co. in boulder does not allow dogs inside or on the patio. they are welcome to be tied up on the outside, but we should probably be removed from this list. Thanks!
