Dining with a dog in southern Maine

Jpan99 | Apr 20, 2010 12:10 PM

I'm going up to Portland in June with my dog for a few days. Looking for places to eat with outdoor seating that will allow dogs.

We usually stop in Kittery on the way up. Does Loco Coco's Tacos have outdoor seating? We've dined at Bob's successfully but looking for something different.

We've stopped at the Lobster Shack in Cape Elizabeth and the patio at Stonewall Kitchen in York. But looking for more options.

I've checked the dog friendly sites but some of the restaurants mentioned have closed, and I'd rather hear first hand from dog owners that have successfully dined places or people who have seen dogs eating in restaurants.

Places I've heard about include:

Gritty McDuff's
Mims - I think they closed
Porthole Restaurant
Portland Lobster Company

Anyone brought a dog to one of these places? Also, my dog is big so he's not going to sit in my lap. A very congested patio area probably wouldn't work well.

Also, any places in between Kittery and Portland worth a stop?

Thanks in advance for any advice.
