Yes, Thai Basil's outside patio seating is most definitely pet friendly!

Response from Noah W | Reviewed this property |
They've got tons of gluten-free options; staple grain is rice, and many of the noodles are rice noodles instead of wheat. I'd always make sure to ask first... but this spot is perfect for GF dining.

They sell beer and cider for sure. Think there was also wine but didn't really look at the list that hard. As for bringing your own bottle I don't know if they would have a corkage fee.
