1. Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar

5100 Belt Line Rd Suite 500
Addison, TX 75254
(469) 754-1300
Visit Website

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.

2. Mutts Canine Cantina

2889 Cityplace West Blvd
Dallas, TX 75204

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.

3. Katy Trail Ice House

After jogging down the Katy Trail with the dog, a pit stop at Katy Trail Ice House is sure to leave everyone refreshed and refueled. Water for Fido is flowing, there's beer for the grown-ups, plus the patio is a great spot for cooling down post-workout.

4. 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.
