The Smokehouse is an old Montana lodge with a fireplace burning in winter and a shady flower filled patio for summer dining. The huge lawn ia also a wonderful place for the kids to play with our bunnies and they love it. We have a full service bar with Belgian beers and local brews on tap, and a complete wine list. We also have a brunch buffet every Sunday from 8 am till 2 pm. Tuesdays and Thursdays we have live music.

the simple answer is no. However if it's a service dog they would allow it and depending on who's working, some do allow them on the patio that is off of the bar.
