Park City is a very dog-friendly town. There is a leash law within city limits, but if you get caught with your dog off a leash, the police officer will hand you a loaner leash for free. More Dogs on Main Street is a regular column in the Park Record, and there are a plethora of pooch-friendly porches for your dogs to dine with you while in town. Below is a partial guide to the dog days of summer dining in Park City.
The first thing to know about dog-friendly dining is that Summit County has a specific license for restaurants wanting to allow dogs on decks. This license certifies the restaurant conforms to local health standards when it comes to animals and food safety. You can find the certified sticker “Pooch Friendly Patio” on restaurants participating in this licensing.
One of Dakota’s favorite decks to dine at is Deer Valley Grocery Cafe at the Deer Valley Plaza. Breakfast, lunch and supper are served Deer Valley style along with a lovely wine list. Dakota can watch the ducks and paddle boarders in the pond for entertainment (when not begging for my carrot cake cupcake).

Follow the rules for good dogs and their humans and you will fit right in on the covered deck at Wasatch Brew Pub. At the top of Main Street, enjoy one of their signature brews and innovative menu items with man’s best friend.

This quiet patio, located behind Lespri in Prospector Square is the perfect spot to bring Fido for a delicious gourmet dinner. Live music, fire pits and some of the best sushi in town makes this a great place for friends and family, even the four-legged ones!

One of the more obvious dog-friendly restaurants is Blind Dog Restaurant & Sushi, located in The Yard off Kearns Boulevard. Paying homage to the owner’s own dogs, Blind Dog serves up fresh seafood, sushi and amazing steaks and sides. “Local’s” specials are always on the menu and summer dining is a real treat on their outdoor patio.

Twisted Fern is the perfect spot for a gourmet lunch or dinner off Main. With menu items that change with the seasons and availability of fresh vegetables and meats, this is a not-to-miss dining experience and who better to experience it with than your four-legged friend? Located off Kearns Boulevard on Snowcreek Drive, plenty of parking and shaded outdoor dining are waiting for you and your pup!

The perfect place to stop for a slice and brew for lunch, after play or dinner. Huge New York style slices of pizza and some fun combinations that tantalize the taste buds await! The patio out back begs for your dog to join you under the umbrellas and mature trees while you have a slice…or two…

My recommendation? Call your preferred restaurant ahead of time to make sure your furry friend is welcome to dine with you on the deck. There are a LOT of dining options for you and your pooch in Park City, enjoy the wonderful mountain air with man’s best friend in Park City!
