  • Dog Friendly Restaurants

    I know recently that Worcester County passed a law that Resturant/Bars with outdoor seating can accept dogs if they applied with the county offices. Does anyone know which ones are now accepting Dogs to join their owners for a drink and or lite meal out? I know of a few but cannot find current list of all of participants now that the law has been into effect for about a month.

    I heard that Mackey's does but you would have to check.

    My dog does not have good table manners (yes my fault) so as much as this sounds great, I'd enjoy my meal more without him.

      I'd enjoy my meal more without him as well. LOL

      And, I have two dogs. Even though they would not be a problem, they don't belong in a restaurant where food and a crowd is..inside or out.

        If I remember correctly, Micky Finn's does or did allow dogs out back...hard to believe in that small outside bar area.

          I also love, love, love my dogs, but I would not go to a place where dogs were allowed. Just like we were saying about children in the other thread, there are always parents/owners who would just let them do as they please. I don't want a strange dog drooling on my leg while I'm eating. Turns my stomach!

            I'd like to know as well so I don't go there. Just the thought of dog hair blowing on my food or a dog peeing or pooping beside me is enough to keep me away. You're not allowed to have dogs on the beach or boardwalk from May 1 to Oct. 1 so why would restaurants allow dogs? Dumb idea.

            And yes, I like dogs and cats just fine, but not in restaurants. That's just EW.



            Oh, and I just read that the law doesn't go into effect until October. So no pups this summer.

              I also love animals but I sometimes find it difficult to keep from shooting Rover when his owner lets him out to crap all over my lawn.

                PLEASE say it ain't so!!! There's a restaurant in Rehobeth on Baltimore Ave. called Hobos that you can bring your dog on the outside porch and have lunch. (it's even part vegan..menu looks good) . I don't know about dinner but I imagine so..go for it..I do not want your pet anywhere near my meal and I don't care how clean you might think they are..Hair is a PROBLEM!!! and I just don't think this is a place for them. 1ST it's the screaming kids and now the pets..PLEASE can't I go out to dinner without either. without worrying about if someone or something is going to hop onto my plate..!!!

                  I love dogs as much as anyone (but really a cat person) but I wouldn't want to be eating in a restaurant and watching someone's dog drooling, scratching, begging for scraps, etc. And it just seems really unsanitary. That said I also understand why they are doing this. A lot of people come to OC with pets in tow. Pet owners don't always seem to be content with leaving Zippy at the motel or condo or pet friendly areas. They want to include their pet in all things vacation I suppose.

                    OC is just too busy of a town to let dogs in restaurants, IMO. One dog here and there would be a different story if there's not a lot of customers and you can have an area to yourself, but places in OC get packed.

                      This will last untill one out of control dog bites one out of control kid. Then the lawsuits will hit the fan !

                        We went over this a few months ago, but after watching these threads on it, I'll tell you what I find really interesting - Even dog lovers (such as myself) realize how much of a bad idea this is... So who are the people that are backing this? And WHY???



                        I agree with the above posts, and once somebody (or another dog) gets bit, everybody will be in trouble EXCEPT the attorneys.

                          I think this last sentence may have just answered your question earlier in your post.

                            this city is big enough to include dogs!

                            A beach is meant to share with your family including pets. There are hundreds of restaurants in ocean city, why is it so bad to allow dogs at a few of them? There are plenty of places to go to avoid children and dogs. Europe is way more progressive by allowing dogs to exist along side their human companions. If a dog doesn't behave then it isn't ready for a restaurant...just like a child. Dog hair isn't just flying through the air while they are laying down sleeping. Human hair flies just like dog hair, that argument is really stretching it thin. Outside doesn't need to be off limits for well behaved dogs. Learn a little tolerance- maybe you will turn out to be a more pleasant person. Something tells me the lot of you are super uptight. Throw us a bone and give us a few restaurants to dine with our dog. We are good dog owners and don't leave our dog in a room all day! There is no place to take your dog and it is a beach! You can't control everyone and have everything set up to just your liking - you have to
                            share...that is life!

                              A lot of places in Baltimore allow pets outside and people aren't getting bit and it is not a big dog fight. Grow up. Why are people are so archaic. People will try to Sue for anything. It isn't as big of a deal as everyone is making it out to be. Stop living in the 50s. Dogs need to be socialized to learn how to behave and if you can't take them anywhere, they never learn. I hate kids and I have to tolerate them. So get over it.
