I have never seen pets at this restaurant but the Sunset Grill allows pets and it is so cool. They will even water your pet! Slick!

I believe they do. I know for sure they have a meat free salad. I think there is even a meat free appetizer. The meals now I can't remember, but I imagine they can customize something if asked. Hope this helps.
