Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar

Copy Link

Any place with the word ‘dog’ in the title should be welcoming of furry friends. Luckily, Lazy Dog takes it a step further by serving canines out on the patio. While grilled meats and brown rice are sure to satisfy any pup, the offerings on the human menu (pasta, sandwiches and more) are decidedly more diverse.

Mutts Canine Cantina

With plenty of cocktails and juicy burgers on offer, Mutts is a fun place for dog parents to cut loose while their dogs play. This Uptown bar even boasts dog-washing stations, so you can clean your pup’s fur after they inevitably roll around in the mud.

Cane Rosso

It's named after a dog and frequently hosts benefits for the company's dog rescue organization, so of course the patio at Cane Rosso is a solid spot for hanging with pups. The servers are happy to fill up bowls of water, but don’t be surprised if your BFF tries to steal his own slices of pie.

Lee Harvey's

Not only is this Dallas gem dog-friendly, but Sundays from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. are the bar’s designated dog days. While the pups roam, humans are encouraged to take advantage of the $2 Bloody Mary and Mimosa specials.

This spacious green patio encased with a wrought iron fence is big enough to relax, work, or catch up with friends over coffee, and to let your (well-trained) dog run around. The baristas at Union will even give you a “pup cup,” or a cup of whipped cream for you dog to eat up.

Katy Trail Ice House

Situated on the Katy Trail, which is perfect for a walk or jog with an energetic pup, this country-themed patio offers plenty of space to sit down, sip margaritas, and enjoy queso while your pup enjoys the fresh Texas air.

Jaxon Beer Garden

At this Downtown spot, there’s plenty of outdoor space to take in outdoor concerts, sip a brew, and feast on snacks while allowing your pup to laze in the sun.

Stan's Blue Note

For those who just can’t miss a Cowboys game, but also can’t stand to be away from their dogs, Stan’s has a nice back patio where everyone and their dog can witness all the action. The back patio is encased with a wooden fence, adding the homey feel of a backyard.

Even if your dog isn’t exactly a gourmet, all pet parents will appreciate the eats at Smithy, which range from tater tot poutine to crab-topped nachos.

HG Sply Co.

Copy Link

Humans and dogs alike will appreciate the killer rooftop views at this Greenville Avenue staple. Servers will fill up a bowl of water for the pups while diners dig into bison chili or tuna tostadas while sipping frozen drinks.

Rodeo Goat

Copy Link

There’s truly nothing better than the pairing of cute dogs and excellent burgers, both of which can be found on the patio of this Design District favorite.

Stackhouse

Copy Link

Over in Deep Ellum, diners and their dogs at Stackhouse can enjoy lower level views of the grassy Old East Dallas neighborhood, or upper level views of the bar and nightlife district. Plus, it’s easy to walk right over to Bark Park Central, located about 10 minutes away.

Paradiso

Copy Link

Over in beautiful Bishop Arts, you can enjoy Mediterranean-inspired fare, as you sit outside and marvel in the greenery of the outdoor space shared with Botanist. Dogs on a leash are welcome to behold the beautiful street art and experience the eclectic neighborhood’s residents and frequenters.
