It's summer, and we all want to eat on the patio...but why would we want to do eat our lunch alone?

Luckily for us, there are plenty of restaurant options that allow your dog to dine with you in Western New York.

Dogs are a part of your family, and you might want to take them everywhere you go. If you have a service dog, you actually need to bring your dog with you, and that should not stop you from dining out for food every once in a while.

A dog is a “man’s best friend,” right? That means there should be no reason why you can’t take your dog out to lunch. 

There are 25 restaurants surrounding the Buffalo area that allow you to bring your dog along for dining out on the patio, and you can see pictures of the top 25 dog-friendly restaurants, as voted by Western New York, below.
