The weather we've all been waiting for is here, and you know what that means. Patios! There are few things better than enjoying a good meal in the sunshine. But when it's nice out, Fido wants to come too -- and you're not going to say no to those big, sad eyes. We've rounded up some of our favorite places that have dog-friendly patios. Some even offer dog bowls and treats! Put the leash on, and let's go for a walk.

Wild Horse Grill
(101 Chesterfield Towne Centre, Chesterfield; 636-532-8750)

Wild Horse Grill is very dog-friendly. On Wednesday afternoons during Pups on the Patio, guests bring well-behaved dogs and hang out. There are even special doggie treats and grassy play areas. Co-owner Tony Valenta is known to bring his own pet and schmooze until close.

The Boathouse at Forest Park
(6101 Government Drive; 314-367-2224)

Forest Park is a classic spring destination. Go for a jog through the park with your dog, or relax lakeside with the pup. It's pretty crowded in the warmer months (many people go pre-Muny), but you can wait for your table in the Adirondack chairs with a cocktail. Just don't let your dog jump in the water!

It was written last year -- we posted it because we're writing an updated list and wanted to get reader input.

Would definitely appreciate updates. Have asked more than once over the last couple years and have always been told no dogs at Market Pub House, which is why we usually end up at Blueberry Hill, Cicero's or Three Kings instead.

It clearly says that the list needs to be updated. Do you read before you ask redundant questions?

Wildhorse grill has been closed for a while. Does anyone fact check your articles?

I don't want you at these places either. I don't want to eat next to you.

Wow. And obviously a dog hater...look at half of your shared posts. All about pit bulls attacking people and how "terrible" they are.

We'll definitely be hitting these up when Molly is a little bit older.

Macklind Avenue Deli is also a great place to eat a bite and hang with your dog!
