Top 10 dog-friendly bars and restaurants in the U.S.



It’s the accessory that never goes out of style. We are obviously talking about your dog! 

After a year of staying at home with our precious pups it seems unfathomable to go anywhere without them. And perhaps this is why the dog bar trend is on the up and up. We consulted with our Yelp Data Science team to determine the top dog friendly restaurants and bars across the U.S. serving up (bow) wow – worthy experiences for both man and best friend alike. 

Thanks to full gourmet dog menus like you’ll find at Creek Side Sedona and dynamite cocktail programs like the one at Toller Patio, it is obvious that the bar for dog friendly has officially been raised. Yelpers like you, and Yelpers like your dog have plenty of reasons to  explore a “Fido friendly” restaurant/bar in your hometown.
