Patio Pet Policy

We have allowed well behaved pets on the patio for several years now. Mostly to allow travelers to bring pets out of the car while enjoying a drink. We have had a large up tick of pets this summer which has added to an already chaotic summer of rules and regulations put upon us. Going forward, we ask that you only bring a pet if it is absolutely necessary, as we don’t want to have to make more rules.

Thanks, Matt
