    Been there many times

    The photo of the patio is misleading, because no dogs are visible. There are *always* dogs on the patio. (Note: we only visit during the afternoon on weekdays.) The waitstaff is very experienced with, accustomed to, and patient with dogs. The food is excellent, and most of it is healthful!

    Dog friendly -No

    May 2021 Update. Patio closed as they cannot get staff to work and cover the patio tables. Ugh because food is great ... huge portions

    Loved it!

    Barnaby’s is definitely a pet friendly restaurant with their outdoor patio seating. The food is delicious and they have a various options for all food types. They even had a puppy menu for my furbaby! We’ll definitely be stopping for a meal next time we’re in the city!

    Great brunch!

    The food was great and the patio was a very comfortable place to have breakfast with our puppy! Thank goodness the weather was nice though because only the patio is dog friendly.

    great patio for dogs

    I have eaten at several of the Barnaby's locations over the years and always been happy with the experience. I recently ate at the Shepherd location which has a dog friendly patio. The service was great and they were very sweet to my dog. One of the staff even provided water for her in a disposable paper dog bowl without me even having to ask. I have not been to any other patio that allows dogs that was as accommodating as Barnaby's. I will definitely be back with my dog!

    Good only on weekends

    The food at Barnabys is great and I have been many times without my dog and loved it Every time. But this is. Review of its dog friendliness and that part stunk. Barnabys is only dog friendly on weekends. A lesson I learned when I was turned away because my special lil girl (ginger my red smooth dachshund).

    doggy social hour

    I organized a meet-up with a few of my friends who owned dogs to check out the scene at Barnaby's. We arrived around 7:00pm on a Friday night- it was quite busy! Many people sitting on the patio also had dogs which was nice to see. The food was good, and the price (which I thought was quite expensive at first), was resonable considering the HUGE portions. My hubby and I split the meatloaf which was pretty simple, but tasty. I only wish that they had provided my dog with a bowl of water when we arrived- he became quite thirsty by the end of the night. They didn't seem to have any happy hour drink specials, which was a bummer, and their menu was a little "off" for my taste. Still, we had a pleasant evening, and will likely go back in the future.
