Harrison's Landing Petitioning City to Allow Dogs at Restaurant

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

One local restaurant that allows dog owners to take their pets was told to stop the practice by a health inspector. So now, Harrison's Landing, which is along the People's Street T-Head, has launched a Facebook petition drive.

The restaurant's general manager said that Houston, Dallas and San Antonio have modified their ordinances to allow some types of restaurants to serve owners who bring in their pets. That is what Harrison's Landing was doing until about a week ago, when the inspector went in and told them that city ordinance only allows service dogs into a restaurant.

"Last I checked, we had over 500 signatures in support of asking the City to modify the ordinance," said Lynn Cates, general manager of Harrison's Landing. "They have to allow pets under certain circumstances, and we would like to be part of that initiative and dialogue, to work out something that would not only comply with sanitation issues or safety concerns."

The restaurant has been allowing pets and their owners to be served since it opened in 2010. The owner thought that, since it was outdoors, that wouldn't be a problem; but now that it is, they feel a solution can eventually be worked out to allow those who come down to the T-Head on a walk or jog to be able to take their pet into the restaurant for a bite to eat as well.
