Pets

Because, like all civilized people, Dallas Voice readers consider their pets members of their families, they like the idea that their children are as welcome at a dining establishment as human toddlers in high-chairs are. In Dallas, where patio dining is a way of life, there are countless options, but what could be better than the Katy Trail Ice House? Located on the Uptown running path (that’s also dog-friendly), the Ice House is a great place to relax after a jog with Fido or a walk with Rover, and the just a place to see-and-be-seen while enjoying a brew or two outdoors. Pets aren’t just begrudgingly allowed  — they belong here.
