Asheville, NC dining with our pooch

Does anyone have any recommendations for a decent outdoor dining spot in Asheville that would welcome a very friendly golden retriever and her owners?

    1. We live in Asheville and dine out with our Labradoodle all the time. All the restaurants in the Grove arcade welcome dogs at their outside tables. These are good restaurants. Sunny Point Cafe, Laughing seed, Mayfels also welcome dogs. On Thursdays at Mayfels, they will donate part of the money to local animal shelters. There are many posts about this and also some info on the Explore Asheville website. You will find us VERY dog loving and these restaurants normaly go out of their way to make you and your dog welcome.

      1. I have succesfully eaten w/ the dog at my feet at Sunny Point, Chorizo, Modesto, and 12 Bones (Arden).

        1. I have to second Laughing Seed. It's in a nice spot and is vegetarian (don't let that dissuade you). I don't recall if they take reservations, but if they do, I would suggest making them. They tend to pull in a lot of people.
