Patios aren’t as easy to come by in Gilbert, AZ as you might think. Then to find a good pet friendly patio in Gilbert is even harder. I continue to scour the Gilbert area for a great place to enjoy food, tasty beverages and a warm welcoming to my dog. Just because a restaurant has a patio, doesn’t mean they are pet friendly. Then, some restaurants are pet friendly, but have teeny tiny patios and it’s just not comfortable to bring your dog.
In my research, I have found a couple of places with patios or gardens that are great to bring your dog to.
Joe’s Farm Grill is unique in that they use all ingredients fresh from their farm. They were also featured on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives. They have a small indoor eating area and a huge outdoor park like setting for enjoying the garden views.
Although they don’t have a full menu, they do have an indoor and outdoor wine bar. Your dog is always welcome and not only are they allowed on the patio, they are welcome inside as well.

Do you have a dog that doesn’t do well when approached by other dogs or humans on your walk? Have you heard of the Yellow Ribbon Project? It will take some education and awareness to spread this concept world wide, but what a great idea to signify that your dog needs some space when out in public.
I know from experience how stressful it can be when the dog you are walking doesn’t care to be approached by another dog or human. Some dogs bark, jump and lunge at others when approached to closely. I always try to avoid others or cross the street when I know the dog I am walking needs space from others. If we could all spread the word about the Yellow Ribbon Project it may make the walking experience much more pleasant for everyone.
There are many reasons, as the image illustrates, why a dog may need some space. Share and spread awareness to the world!
I LOVE taking my dogs to the park. They love it too! Did you know that all parks in Mesa are dog friendly? That doesn’t mean they are all dog parks and dogs are allowed off the leash. The City of Mesa has put together a great list of Doggie Do’s and Dont’s. So before you visit one of Mesa’s great parks with your pooch, be sure you know the rules and common courtesies.
Whether you are visiting one of the designated dog parks or not, owners are responsible for the behavior of their pet, requested to keep their dog under control and pick up after them. Common sense tells us that not every PERSON is dog friendly. Even though you love your dog and your dog loves people, there may be people or kids around that are terrified of dogs. Be respectful and keep your dog on a leash if NOT in a designated dog park. No one wants to see your dog’s poo…so be prepared and bring some poop bags with you to clean up after your pet.
According to the Mesa City Code if you don’t want to follow the sate law and a park ranger catches you with your dog off leash, or not cleaning up after them, you can be convicted of a violation, be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine not to exceed two thousand five hundred dollars ($2,500.00) or by imprisonment not to exceed six (6) months, or by both fine and imprisonment. IS IT WORTH IT?
