Want to get pasta with your pup? Some dinner with your dog? A kale salad with your K9? The Salt Lake County Health Department announced 22 restaurants and cafes approved to legally allow dogs in their outdoor eating area.

The health department granted the 22 variances for the 2019 season and expects more establishments to apply in the weeks to come.

The following eateries have been granted a dog patio permit:

The variance only applies to dogs and does not affect qualifying ADA service dogs in any way. At this time last year, only 14 restaurants got the “dog patio” license.

To receive such a license, the dog-friendly business must submit to a special safety plan, pay a $315 fee and agree to a few simple rules. These rules include that the establishment posts signs that notify patrons that dogs are allowed on the patio, have an outside entrance so dogs don’t have to go inside the restaurant and wait staff may not touch the dogs. Owners bringing their dogs agree to have them on leash at all times and may not eat any of the food served or their own food. The dogs can have water in a disposable container.

The variances are good for one summer dining season. Businesses that remain in good standing may renew next year for a reduced $110 fee. Restaurants can apply for a dog patio permit, call the Food Protection Bureau at 385-468-3845
