The Best Dog-Friendly Restaurant Patios in St. Louis

The tiny but adorable patio at Half & Half in Clayton. | Jennifer Silverberg

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.

Outdoor seating comes with a great view. | RFT Photo

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!
