Pets: Per updated guidelines from the city of Boston on March 26, 2021, we can only allow service dogs for persons with disabilities (physical or sensory) on the deck and our management staff now needs to ask all customers with dogs this question “is this a service animal” and we will need to trust the patron’s word. No paperwork or documentation is needed. The City also noted that Emotional support dogs are not permitted on the patio. Generally, these animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless such devices interfere with the animal’s work or the customer’s disability.
