Do you allow dogs?

We applied for a dog permit to allow dogs but until we are approved by the city, only service animals are permitted. If you are dining with a service animal, you must answer these questions:

1. Is the animal a service animal required because of a disability?

2. What task or service is the animal trained to perform?

If an animal is not acting like a service dog (excessive barking , jumping on other guests, ect.) we can ask that person to remove the animal. Animals are not permitted to eat food from the restaurant or brought from outside and must remain on the ground (not on laps, tables, chairs, or bar tops).
