If we had to name the one thing we enjoy the most about living in Southern California, what would we say? Definitely the warm weather! Who can complain about wearing flip-flops to the beach in December??
So that means restaurants with outdoor dining abound in Orange County. Cafes, bistros, family dining, fine dining, sandwich shops...from California Cuisine to Contemporary, Irish to Italian, Vietnamese to Vegetarian, Hawaiian to Homestyle....Orange County has it all!
With so many great restaurants to choose from, I remember many a long day at work, returning home with little desire to cook...but who wants to leave your beloved pup home alone even longer? You don't have to!
Here you'll find fantastic dog friendly restaurants in Orange County who welcome your leashed dog to join your outdoor dining experience. Most will offer a fresh bowl of water, some will have a snack ready for Sparky and a few even have doggie menu options or treats for purchase.
A note of caution: policies DO change, so please call ahead before venturing out.
