You can bring a non-service dog into a restaurant only if you are sitting in an outdoor seating area. Restaurants may allow dogs in outdoor areas, but they are not required to do so.

Dogs must be on a leash or in a crate. They may not eat at the table or be served using dishes or utensils that are intended for customers.

Dogs may only eat or drink from single-use, disposable containers provided by the restaurant. You may not feed a dog using pet dishes you brought from home.

Service Dogs

Businesses open to the public may not demand any proof of disability or certification of the animal to allow a person to access the business with their service animal.
