On the Bay is one of Michigan’s best places to host a party thanks to their friendly atmosphere and shareable food. They have a spacious patio in the back and a smaller one out front where you and your dog can sit. When it gets cold, the outdoor seats get heated gazebos to keep guests warm, but they also reduce the space between tables. The best time to eat at On the Bay with your dog would be during the summer when there’s plenty of space outside and many tropical cocktail shows going on.

2. Eos Cafe & Coffee House

If you’re in the mood for a nice latte and a cozy environment, head on over to Eos Cafe & Coffee House. This little cafe is loved for being a nice place to sit and work or have a morning chat with friends. They have a patio out front where you can sit with your dog after a morning run. The patio is big enough for dogs of all sizes, and because it faces the street and Lake St. Clair, your dog can watch cars and people pass by as you sip on your coffee.

3. Padaria by Chef Andre Leite

There’s also a corner with pet turf your dog can lie down on in case there’s no room under the tables.

There’s no better place to get some classic burgers, fries, and shakes than Lov-a Burger. Lov-a Burger offers a larger variety of burger styles and recipes than other places, so it's perfect for people who want to expand their burger palate. They have a small, outdoor seating area at the front of the store for you and your dog, but there are only a few seats, so make sure to arrive early. There’s a lot of space between each table for big dogs or multiple dogs.

Eat out with your dog at restaurants in Clinton Township

Before you head out to a restaurant with your dog, you should know what kind of table scraps your dog can eat. Certain foods, particularly those heavy in spices, can be toxic for some dogs. That’s why it’s important that you know what you can and can’t feed your dog. If you want to know more about how to keep your dog safe, book a virtual vet appointment with a Vetster veterinarian to get all your questions answered.
