Dining Al Fresco with Fido

 At The Dog's Meow, we know there are lots of dog lovers in the Draper and Millcreek neighborhoods who like to include their pet in their social lives and everyday activities. Sometimes you just want to relax over a good meal with a friend and you want to include your dog, especially now that the weather is nicer. We also know how hard it can be to find dog-friendly patios at our local restaurants. That’s why we took the time to “dig” around and come up with these fun and dog-friendly restaurants for you and your pup to enjoy!

Check out their yummy day-time menu and treat yourself and your favorite furry friend to lunch in the sun!
