Susquehanna Valley's Dog-Friendly Restaurants, as Chosen by our Readers

The Fence 

(1605 PA-405, Milton) This old-school drive-in, known for its fish sandwich, seafood and burgers, will serve you (and your pooch) in the car or on the patio. Just make sure to keep your pet leashed and away from the geese that populate the riverside.

Stockyard Inn Steakhouse 

(1147 Lititz Pike, Lancaster) Dog-friendly tables are outside on the wrap-around porch at one of the oldest, continuously operating steakhouses in the United States. The Filet Mignon is a stand-out, served with a Pinot Noir reduction. Desserts are a must: key lime pie and warm apple crisp are worth the calories.

Johnson’s Café 


(334 Broad St., Montoursville) Leashed, friendly dogs are allowed at the seasonal outdoor dining area up until 5 p.m. A plus: there’s usually a tasty dish available for canine customers!

Berkey Creamery at PSU

(119 Food Science Building, University Park) At the largest university creamery in the US—they also produce about half their products from a university owned 200+ cow herd—there are outer tables and benches, and your dog may join you there for a tasty treat. Dogs must be well behaved and leashed.
