After our dolphin tour, my girlfriend and I took refuge from the rain in this cozy restaurant. She got the Reuben, which was delightful! I got a tuna melt that was pretty good, as well as the turkey-corn chowder that was delicious!

Yes...you will have no issues having your pet with you on the back patio at Poor Richards. Afterwards, you should take a stroll along the docks where it is very pet friendly. :-)
