So what experiences have you had since the change in rules a year and a half ago? Have you noticed more dogs or fewer on restaurant patios? Are there places that you frequent or avoid based on whether they allow dogs?
Personally, I love bringing my dog out, especially to places that are sweet enough to offer him a water bowl. They definitely get more of my business because of their policy.
For those who feel the same — or want to know where not to go — here's an informal list of dog-friendly restaurants off the top of my head:
The Dog of Nashville
Fido & Bongo Java
Village Pub & Beer Garden
Batter'd & Fried
12 South Taproom
Beyond the Edge
Eastland Cafe (do y'all know about Lappy Hour?!?)
What places am I missing?
