We took friends for brunch who had never been here and they wondered how they could have waited so long to visit. The brunch is fabulous and the service is too.

Rita's has a nice menu for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The lunch menu is more limited than the dinner menu. They also offer a huge Sunday brunch, although it is very pricey ($68). The table side guacamole is very good. Salmon is also excellent. Other...More

There were no dogs there at the time I was there, so not sure, but it wouldn't hurt to call and ask.
