How hard is it to find a pet friendly restaurant?! Sometimes it seems you search forever; other times there are several in a small area, and you don’t know which one to choose. Northern Liberties, a neighborhood about 10 minutes north and east of center city Philadelphia is an extreme example of the latter. There are many pet friendly restaurants to choose from, so enjoy these outdoor dining options!
Update: This post was written in 2009 and some of these locations have turned over to other restaurants. The important thing is that you’ll still have plenty of pet friendly restaurants in Philadelphia to choose from.

The Piazza at Schmidts was built to recreate the open air feel of gathering places in Europe. And several of these pet friendly restaurants have sheltered outdoor seating so you can dine with your dog even in inclement weather. A big screen TV and performance stage dominates the south end of the piazza. And there’s great people watching.
