Again, these restaurants are dog-friendly in their outdoor seating areas. I can’t promise you that the owners or servers will allow your pup inside the establishment. These dining areas will be especially enjoyable when the weather cools down a bit. 

Of course, you should encourage your dog to be polite around fellow outdoor diners. We don’t want one dog bite or forgotten poop to be the reason dogs are no longer allowed on the patios. 

Also, it can’t hurt to bring a leash, a poop bag and a bowl of water for your pup while you’re out visiting these dining spots.
