Outdoor Dining w/ Dogs - 2008

Yup, it's that time of the year again. There's daylight until 7PM, Spring is < 2 weeks away, and it will soon be time to dine outside with all well-trained dogs!!! Yes, boys and girls, it will soon be time.

So, I've pasted a previous thread, that a number of us had developed last year, regarding outdoor dining options for you and your pets. Even though a restaurant is listed here, I would suggest calling first to inquire about their current rules. Remember, the City Statute (Section 8125, Article 81 of the Health Code) states that restaurants can use their discretion as to whether or not they allow people to sit outside with their dog. So, this is a variable condition and may also be dependent on the manager assigned on a particular day.

I also encourage everyone to amend this list with either new additions or deletions (i.e. I showed up and they said, "No dogs EVER!"


Thanks and, remember, no people food!!!

  1. I think the other important thing to remember when calling is that many restaurants, during the warm months, put up barricades and require that you have your dog on the outside of the barricade. Ask about that if you are/aren't a fan of it!
