Pet Friendly Smoky Rock BBQ in Rhinebeck, NY
You and your pup are welcome at any of the outdoor tables, in the front where you can people watch or on the quieter back patio. Enjoy classic bbq offerings or try some of the house creations, like Piggy Mac (mac n cheese with your choice of pulled pork or smoked bacon added), Volcano Potatoes (potato skins filled with pulled pork, pulled chicken, cheddar cheese, and bacon), or the Cowboy Burger (a beef burger topped with a slice of smoked brisket and melted cheese). All the meat is locally sourced and smoked on site. Wash is all down with your choice of craft beer or one of their 30 bourbons.

Liberty Public House

6417 Montgomery Street,
Rhinebeck, NY 12572
You and your canine are welcome at the outdoor tables on the front porch of this establishment. Honestly, it's one of our very favorite places to eat outside--it feels like your own front porch, that is, if you have a porch. The menu is fantastic and oftentimes we don't get beyond the appetizers--they are that good and they are also pretty substantial. Some of our favorites: Crispy Artichoke Hearts with Lemon & Caper Aioli, Cornmeal-Crusted Oyster with Thyme Remoulade, Grandma's Pierogies, and their duck liver pate is pretty much to die for.

Terrapin Restaurant & Bar

6426 Montgomery Street,
Rhinebeck, NY 12572
One of the nicest dining spaces in Rhinebeck. If you can snag an outdoor table, either under one of the umbrellas or the small porch area, you can your pooch can dine together. They have a wonderful bistro menu but our favorite offering, hands down, is the Make Your Own Topping Sandwich, constructed from duck confit, smoked onions, and wasabi aioli on a baguette. Plus they serve killer fries.

Aroi Thai Restaurant

55 East Market Street,
Rhinebeck, NY 12572
Pet Friendly Aroi Thai Restaurant in Rhinebeck, NY
There is limited outdoor seating, but if you can grab a table, your pooch is welcome to accompany you. It's a sweet little porch and a great place to people watch. A wonderful menu. Some of our favorites: Chicken Larb, Mee Krob, Som Tum Salad, and their soft-shell crab when in season.
