Finding a restaurant where taking along the dog is part of the ambiance is nothing short of wonderful. The places listed below vary in how much space they have for Fido, but they all offer some sort of patio seating where it's not only okay to have a loyal companion, but it's often encouraged. When you've finished dining, take your dog out to a nearby dog park and pass the frisbee around.
