Dog Friendly Restaurants

Palm Springs is very family friendly, so be sure to include your pet on your next dining adventure.  After all, aren’t they part of the family too!  Generally, dogs are not allowed in restaurants unless they are service animals. However, Palm Springs is fortunate to have many outdoor seating areas.
