We’re lucky to live, work and play in West Chester, Ohio. Our town is home to many great spots and is well-known for our love of dogs. But that doesn’t mean our furbabies are allowed to visit every business in town. Here are a few spots though where you and your pups are always welcome!
If you’ve lived in West Chester a while, you probably know about Wiggly Field Dog Park in Voice of America MetroPark. This park is such a great spot for pups and their parents it’s also made a few all-Cincinnati lists as a great place for singles to get dates! Located near the Athletic Field Complex, Wiggly is actually two separate dog parks: one for smaller dogs and one for larger dogs, and both are fenced in. Packed with plenty of benches and shaded spots, the park’s attention to rules makes is part of what makes it great. Dogs must remain next to owners, but they don’t have to remain on a leash as long as the owner is carrying a leash. And other pet parents are likely to ask those with aggressive dogs to find another spot to play.
The Cone is another West Chester institution that is a perfect spot for dogs. Located at the corner of Tylersville and Cincinnati-Dayton Rd., the Cone is so dog-friendly there’s even a giant plastic one on its roof. While technically rules are no dogs since it’s a restaurant, it’s tough to drive by and not see a few well-behaved pups and their parents enjoying some treats in its outdoor seating area. Some other restaurants with outdoor areas are often packed with pups as well, but in our experience, it can be hit or miss if that day’s staff or other patrons on the patios will tolerate your pup sitting next to you at your table.
Troy’s Café on Smith Road is another spot that always allows well-behaved pups in their outdoor seating area. Known for its amazing Cuban sandwich, Troy’s is a chef-driven spot that focuses on dishes made with seasonal, local ingredients. Run by Troy and his wife, Tania, the couple has created a restaurant that serves fresh, upscale-tasting food in a casual atmosphere. It’s also kid-friendly and has a great kid’s menu.
Lucky Dog Grille
Just down the road in Mason, Lucky Dog Grille absolutely allows your well-behaved pup to sit with you in its outdoor seating area. Known for its delicious dry rubbed, smoked wings and ample craft beers, this spot is a great option when you want a casual dinner or lunch. Serving everything from burgers and wraps to salads, tacos
