Piedmont Bistro

One of Lincoln’s favorite restaurants lets dogs eat free on Tuesday. Go ahead and grab a seat on the patio and ask about their canine menu. Piedmont Bistro truly is offering great food and fun for every member of any group, even those of the four-legged variety.


Dog Parks

Spread throughout the city, Lincoln’s Dog Runs are the perfect place to let your pup off the leash and meet other dogs. With over 22 acres at Rickman’s Run near Holmes Lake alone, there’s plenty of space for your dog to run around no matter where you are. Plus with sectioned areas for dogs of a smaller stature, dogs will be able to safely play with dogs their own size.
