Spring and fall are the best seasons for patio dining and lounging. The days are warm, the evenings are cool, and the food and drink are always spot on. If you like to bring your well-behaved pooch along for the merriment, these patios will be of particular interest to you.

There are a variety of pet-friendly patios at restaurants, wineries, and breweries in the Roanoke Valley in Virginia's Blue Ridge.

Gather your friends, family, or even co-workers and head to one of these patios with your furry companion in tow and enjoy the beautiful days and evenings in Virginia’s Blue Ridge.


The area craft breweries love dogs and invite them for a treat and water while you take a flight of the latest seasonal beverages. If you choose the right night, live music and a food truck may be on hand to make it one well-rounded evening with friends.

Wine dogs are very common (almost expected) in Virginia wineries, and vineyard cats are growing in popularity for their “mole control patrol,” as Virginia Mountain Vineyards puts it, but not all wineries are pet-friendly. We’re glad to tell you that these patios in Virginia’s Blue Ridge are delightful to visit AND your furriest friend is welcome, too.
