Unfortunately, you can’t leash up your dog and stroll into just any restaurant. Most restaurants don’t permit pets inside unless they are service animals, and surprisingly, a lot of restaurants don’t allow them on patios either. The good news is this: There are 22 restaurants in Saint Louis that welcome dogs at their outdoor tables. If you’re planning on taking your four-legged friend to lunch, this list should assist you with picking the perfect place!
Luvy Duvy’s Cafe: This restaurant couldn’t be more dog-friendly. In fact, each of the outdoor tables offers a dog bowl, so it’s almost as if they were expecting you and your dog from the get-go!
Boathouse Forest Park: Maybe it’s your dog’s birthday, and you’re hoping to plan a special day. You’ve found it at the Boathouse Forest Park! Here, a restaurant serves up typical American dishes and there is seating for your pup, but the attached boating facility will rent you a pet-friendly paddleboat. Load up your dog, and take a cruise on the lake after lunch!
The Filling Station: What’s in a name? Well, it’s pretty self-explanatory that you’ll get a great meal at The Filling Station, and you’ll also leave with a full belly. But you can also bring your pup, and if they’re social, they will love the restaurant’s resident bulldog who is happy to share her space.
Murdoch Perk: If you’re on the hunt for a breakfast place that has seating for your dog, Murdoch Perk is the place to go. There’s no doubt your dog will be begging for a bite of the waffles with crispy bacon, but whether or not you choose to share is up to you.
Local Harvest Cafe: For environmentally-friendly fare, Local Harvest Cafe has the market cornered. Here, they serve a variety of organic food, but best of all, there is plenty of pet-friendly seating.
