By Sam Hacker – March 1, 2023

Sometimes our most memorable times going out to eat include our pup — what more could you want than to enjoy a meal alongside your best friend? 

Especially in such a dog-friendly city like Austin, residents are always looking for a place to bring their dogs. Here are some of the best eateries in Austin that cater to your pup so you both can have a memorable time:

Made with both people and dogs in mind, Blue Lacy provides a menu for both humans and pups, with all dog items served in a doggy bowl! At this joint in Muller, your pets do need to be leashed, but there is a large open patio area for them to enjoy, which is overlooked by a fantastic dog mural. If you’re feeling something sweet, don’t fret because they’ve got ice cream, even some that your dog can enjoy!

If you’re south of Lady Bird Lake, Bouldin Acres might be the best place to take your pup! It’s not only famous for the pickleball; it’s a great place to hang out, eat smoked dishes and drink specialty cocktails all alongside your furry friend. For your dog, they offer water bowls and doggy treats at the bar, and pups can play at the fenced-in dog park. All dogs must be leashed, except in their dog park.

You may only come to Easy Tiger for the home-baked bread, but you’ll definitely stay for the pups! Both The Linc and the East 7th locations are dog-friendly, and the workers love meeting any dog that accompanies you. Pups must be leashed and well-behaved, and while they can’t come inside, they can enjoy the outdoor patio at their leisure. Dog bowls are also available upon request if your pup gets thirsty!

Sips & Sweets Café

Attached to the Kendra Scott store on South Congress Avenue in Austin, the Sips & Sweets Café welcomes all fur babies to their patio as you relax and enjoy a selection of coffee, pastries and wine year-round. The Sips & Sweets Café is also a wine bar, featuring new wines from season to season. All pets must be leashed, not only for the safety of other patrons but also because the Café sits right next to the road. While pets are welcome to stay with you as you order inside, they must stay on the patio with you during your visit.

Yard Bar

What do you get when you cross a dog park and tasty drinks? A really great bar for Austin! The Yard Bar has an off-leash dog park where guests can enjoy a drink of their choice, whether it be a beer, cocktail or non-alcoholic beverage. Mainly centered around your dog, this bar on Burnet Road has a list of rules that are more closely aligned with a traditional dog park, so be sure to check those out! Customers must be older than 21 to enter the dog park, and dogs must be spayed or neutered as well as have collars with updated information.
