This is a topic that has come up often for visitors to Santa Barbara brining their canine family members.
Today's paper featured the following restaurants who welcome canines to their patios in the greater Santa Barbara area to Santa Ynez Valley: Arch Rock Fish; Brewhouse; Fresco Valley Cafe; Savoy Cafe and Deli; Summerland Beach Cafe; Pascucci; Aldo's Ristorante; Pizza Mizza; Petro's at Fess Parkers; Dos Carlitos; Cafe Quackenbush; Vineyard House.
Santa Barbara County health officials declared this was legal in outdoor patios as long as there was a separate entrance from the outside and dogs are prohibited from walking through the indoor areas. There may be more dog-welcoming places than featured in this article - no comments about the food at any of these spots, but some of these restaurants even have dining options on the menu for the dog too.
