Poochin’ on the patio: 14 dog-friendly watering holes

If you’re anything like us, you love your dog more than most people.

If you’re violently nodding your head in agreement, we’ve got news for you!

Last year, the Ohio House passed a bill that stated dogs shall be allowed on bar and restaurant patios at the discretion of the owners of the establishment.

So basically—all the cool kids are doin’ it.

Now, it’s official: You can enjoy your suds with your best bud. Just keep ‘em on the leash and make sure they have plenty of water. 2018 is the summer of the dog.

Seventh Son in Italian Village, and Land Grant Brewing Company in Franklinton had a direct hand in making patios paw friendly for the capital city canine crowd. The new Franklinton BrewDog right across the street will give you another option when those weekend crowds start to fill in. 

Help yourself to some Prestons: A Burger Joint goodness at Woodlands, but their fare is too good to share with your pooch… Right?

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

Just up the road, Ohio Taproom is a street-side escape for you and your pal. Oddfellows Liquor Bar is possibly the original dog bar, with a mostly fenced-in patio.

Walk right up the street to Julep for a change of pace with your pup, all in the Short North. Standard Hall has a huge amount of outside space, making it a good starter for dogs who need to learn patio manners. Take them before it gets busy, and bring lots of treats. Pretty soon, they’ll associate cocktails with happiness, just like you do.

Little Rock is the most laid-back spot to bring.. Well, Spot. You might even see a special guest appearance from resident pup, Harvey.

Gresso’s is a German Village doggie destination with food, booze, and plenty of shade for those dog day afternoons. Plus, it’s just a hop, skip, and a jump from both Scioto Audubon and Schiller Parks. 

Pins Mechanical Co. downtown also has plenty of patio space, and a little fenced in dog park right around the corner at 4th and Spring, if your pal wants to stretch his/her legs, or if nature calls.

Up north in Worthington, Natalie’s has room for furry friends on the patio, where you can hear the tunes from inside. The Bottle Shop has plenty of shaded tables, underneath which your dog can sit and stare at you longingly.

And Harvest has multiple patio locations where you can find friendly Fidos.

Frankly, you’ll love the new hot dog restaurant open now in Graceland

Hot-diggity-dog, there's a new hot dog stand in central Ohio! Links-N-Lemonade has completed its transition from food truck-only to brick-and-mortar, slinging creatively-topped dogs in the Graceland Shopping Center.

Links-N-Lemonade's menu consists of several hot dogs topped with different sauces and sides like cole slaw, coney sauce, and fries. Customers can opt for the classic all-beef dog or go for the veggie option.

Guests can choose from predetermined loaded hot dogs or customize their own with up to 10 toppings. Fresh-cut fries, both loaded and not, and fresh-squeezed lemonade are also offered.

Owner Damon Owens began serving his all-beef, quarter-pound dogs out of a food cart in 2011 with hopes of opening a restaurant soon thereafter.

Columbus Dispatch reports the recession slowed him down, but income from a coveted spot at Tanger Outlets Columbus off Interstate 71 put him in position to buy a food truck in 2017. From there came the 128 Graceland Blvd. restaurant, which opened in June.

Damon continues to operate his food truck, having just made an appearance at the Columbus Food Truck Festival.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday. For more information visit linksnlemonade.com.
