A bill passed by the Ohio Senate earlier this summer and signed into law by Gov. John Kasich makes it easier for dogs to have a night out on the town.
In June, a unanimous vote of 33-0 passed the bill that now gives restaurant owners — not local public health officials — the right to decide whether owners can bring their dogs to the restaurant’s patio or not.

With area restaurants and bars now able to set their own policies, we decided to see which patios will be favorable to furry customers and which will not.
Did we miss your favorite local eatery or bar that has been accommodating to your pooch? Let me know at email@example.com and I will be sure to add it to our list. *Note, this list might be incomplete, as our city has many great patios to enjoy a meal or cold drink. We will be updating the list as we find more dog-friendly patios.
