Best Dog-Friendly Restaurant: Norm’s Eatery & Ale House

The people have spoken.

The city is full of dog owners, which means there are a lot of people on a wandering stroll with a pup who are in need of a pint and a bite to eat. Well, if you’re in Fremont, the place to hit is Norm’s. It’s like that painting of the dogs playing poker: You’ll see any and all breeds looking confident in their rightful place. Fun fact: It offers the best vegetarian sliders in the city. Get them with tater tots, spicy aioli, and a Lucille IPA. 460 N. 36th St., 547-1417

First runner-up: Chao Canyon

Second runner-up: Rhein Haus

Honorable mention: Sam’s Tavern South Lake Union, The Bridge
