The Four Dogs Tavern – West Chester, PA

Jun 16, 12 The Four Dogs Tavern – West Chester, PA

Restaurant Address: 1300 West Strasburg Road, West Chester, PA 19382

Originally an old stable, the Four Dogs Tavern is now a local hot spot for many 4 legged diners in the warmer months. The outdoor patio is a wonderful place to dine with your furry companion.
The tables on the patio are tightly packed, but that doesn’t deter people from bringing their bigger (well behaved) dogs. If your dog isn’t “dog friendly” it’s probably not the place to go as on warm summer nights it can seem as the dogs sometimes outnumber the humans.
The food is fabulous, but a little “fancier” and more pricy than you might expect – but it is well worth the cost. The Four Dogs Tavern also shares a menu with the Mendenhall Inn which is located across the parking lot.
Dining on the patio with your dog in the summer will also allow you to sample some local music by area musicians on Thursday and Sunday nights. They also host dog friendly events throughout the year such as their Halloween Party.
Definitely a must visit place if you are in the Chester County Area.

This is a wonderful gastropub right on the Venice boardwalk. They are VERY dog friendly. Dogs are allowed in the outdoor patio area, there is a water bowl for dogs at the front door too.

Blackbeard’s BBQ – Ventura, CA

Jul 12, 11 Blackbeard’s BBQ – Ventura, CA

Restaurant Address: 1591 Spinnaker Dr. (Suite 115), Parking lot #3, Ventura, CA 93003

Good BBQ with live music. Choice of chicken, beef or pork. We ate on the patio, a raised platform with railing, with our Dobe. They brought her a water dish and kept coming back to check on all of us. This is the last restaurant in a complex, next to a large well kept park, so when we finished dinner we were able to take our dog out for a well earned run on the grass. Doggie poop bag stands were readily available throughout this complex, as well as trash bins.

Senor Fish – Eagle Rock

Restaurant Address: 4803 Eagle Rock Blvd., Eagle Rock

This amazing little chain has five locations, I have only visited two, but I love the one in Eagle Rock. It is surrounded by outside tables under big oak trees and dogs are welcome on the fenced patio. A larger patio on the side has allowed us to hold meetings of our dog obedience club, with a bit of notice so they knew we were coming for lunch. We even awarded a prize for the dog/owner combination with the best canine manners. The food covers breakfast, lunch and dinner with a choice of different fish in your tacos, tostados or just about anything. Their salads with a choice of chicken, fish or shrimp is wonderful.

I love taking my pug Duke here, not only do they have good food and beer for the mommies and daddies, but they have always been very nice about us bringing him in. They have a beautiful patio that you can sit with your dog, since my guy is little we had him sitting on a seat. My father has also brought his dog who is a medium to large size dog and they graciously welcomed him and Sadie. They are always nice about bringing you some water for the pups. Ellicotville it’s self is a very pretty cute area, nice to walk around.
