There are pet-friendly businesses throughout Sierra County.
A neighborly reminder: dogs should always be leashed and picked up after.
Certified service dogs are allowed in restaurants with their owners. Otherwise bringing dogs or other pets into eating establishments is a health code violation. That said, a few local eateries allow well-mannered pets on their patios, including The Restaurant at Sierra Grande Lodge, Little Slice of Heaven, Casa Taco, and Sumthins. Should anything change we’ll update this page.
