NewsDepth Petting Zoo: Restaurant Serves Up Gourmet Food for Dogs

THE NEWEST MENU ITEMS AT REVERY IN GREENWOOD ....

(Eric Kett/Revery General Manager)
"One of our favorites is the chicken and sweet potato."

SOUND GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT.

(Eric Kett/Revery General Manager)
"Tuna and salmon stew."

BUT THEY'RE NOT MEANT FOR TWO-LEGGED CUSTOMERS.

(Eric Kett/Revery General Manager)
"We're here to make sure the dog can have dinner as well."

ONE OF GREENWOOD'S MOST POPULAR RESTAURANTS IS REACHING A WHOLE NEW SET OF PATRONS.

(Eric Kett/Revery General Manager)
"The owner, Mark Hendricks, is a big dog lover himself, has a dog. He did a little bit of research and decided that Greenwood needed a dog menu for our patio."

THE DOG GETS POPCORN ON THE HOUSE.

THEN THE ENTREES RUN THREE TO FOUR DOLLARS EACH.

THEY INCLUDE MANY OF THE SAME INGREDIENTS THE RESTAURANT PUTS IN ITS NORMAL DISHES.

(Krista Taggart/Dog Owner)
"Real chicken, real vegetables, wholesome human quality food."

IN FACT, SOME PEOPLE HAVE TASTED THE DOG FOOD THEMSELVES.

(Eric Kett/Revery General Manager)
"Ya they said it was very flavorful, I'm not so sure they'd have it for their entree, but they definitely have it to their dog and their dog enjoyed it as well."

DOG OWNER KRISTA TAGGART DIDN'T TRY THE DOG DISH, BUT HER PUP LEIA DUG INTO THE CHICKEN AND SWEET POTATOES.

(Krista Taggart/Dog Owner)
"My daughter Rory loves taking Leia everywhere possible, so the idea that we could take her with us to eat and she could have her own menu, is a fun special treat for all of us."

THIS WAS THEIR FIRST VISIT TO REVERY FOR THE DOG MENU, AND SHE SAID IT WON'T BE THE LAST.

(Krista Taggart/Dog Owner)
"She cleaned her plate, she loved it."

BECAUSE THE DOGS ARE ONLY ALLOWED ON THE PATIO. RIGHT NOW, THE MENU IS SEASONAL.

(Eric Kett/Revery General Manager)
"Hopefully we got a couple more good months out here and feel free to bring your dog and have a good time."
