Tails on The Terrace: Bedford T-BONES' Dog Friendly Restaurant Menu

February 2017

Treat your four-legged best friend to a special meal at T-BONES of Bedford. Our Tails on the Terrace menu lets your puppy take a break from all that kibble and enjoy a restaurant-quality meal specially-made for dogs. Pet-friendly dishes are named after staff pooches, whose pictures grace the back of the special dog menu. The Moe Bowl, which includes ground beef and whole-grain rotini, is named for a smiling, pink-tongued bulldog. "Moe eats anything," the description reads. "Maybe your dog does too?"

We know it's hard to find dog-friendly restaurants in New Hampshire and we welcome you and your pet to dine on the terrace at T-BONES of Bedford. The terrace is an outdoor dining area of the restaurant, availability subject to New Hampshire's seasons and weather conditions.
