Restaurants With Attached Dog Parks

Posted by Lauren Barker

These dog-friendly restaurants around the country are giving new meaning to the phrase “dine and dash.” While you enjoy your meal, Fido can make new friends and have a ball at the attached, off-leash dog parks. If you’re just craving a cold drink, visit one of these dog park bars.

While you’re chowing down on a MUTTS Original Chicken Sandwich and sipping a Barkarita, Fido will be exploring the one-acre off-leash dog park at MUTTS Canine Cantina in Dallas. The park features separate areas for large and small dogs, and attendants are on duty to keep things clean and ensure the pups have ample water for both drinking and playing. If your dog would rather hang by your side, leashed pups are welcome on the patio where they can order a Pupsicle (made of beef broth, peanut butter, and an edible bone) or the Doggie Dog, a bite-sized 100% beef frank.

If your furry friend is about to celebrate a birthday, contact MUTTS Pawty Planner to schedule a private event with all of his pals. Four-legged guests receive party hats and bow ties, a bowl of bones, and a bucket of popcorn. Decorations for the party include fire hydrant centerpieces, and all canines get access to the dog park.

MUTTS also has locations in Fort Worth and Allen, TX. Access is by membership only, but daily passes can be purchased for $10.

Eat. Drink. Stay. That’s the motto of Denver’s Watering Bowl, also referred to as “your best friend’s bar” because it pays special attention to four-legged guests. This Glendale neighborhood restaurant and tavern boasts 7,000 square feet of fenced, turf dog park for Fido to stretch his legs. It also has two pet-friendly patios where your pup can join you for a delicious meal. If he's been a good boy, order a round of dog treats for the table or a doggy cake on special occasions.

Furry guests are welcomed through a special side entrance leading straight to the patio area. When temperatures rise, your pup can cool off in a doggy pool or on a bed of ice. In the winter, heated tents will keep the patio toasty. Dog park attendants are also on hand to clean up after your pooch and make sure he’s happy.

At the Watering Bowl, Fido plays for free.

Dogs rule at BRK Republic Dog Park & Bar, but humans are always welcome to join their best friends. This play area combines an off-leash dog park, social drinkery with 30 drafts, and Lilo’s Streetfood and Bar, a delicious cafe serving tacos, rice bowls, and more. From the play area and wash stations to doggie treats and 2,400 square feet of fenced off-leash fun, this place is all about keeping Fido happy. Pups can play on the artificial turf while a Dog Park supervisor, also known as a Wooferee, keeps a watchful eye on the proceedings.

Day passes for pups are available for a fee of $10, monthly memberships are $20, and annual memberships cost $220.

A doggy jungle gym, a giant bowl filled with tennis balls and two fenced dog parks for both large and small pups? Sounds like a hound’s heaven if you ask us! Located on the shore of the Missouri River in downtown Kansas City, Bar K Dog Bar offers humans and their canines a place to eat, drink, and meet new friends. Dogtenders are on site to look after Fido while you dine on “healthy casual” fare sourced from ethical and humane farmers. Members will enjoy specials throughout the week, and there is a full dog menu available with items like a doggy breakfast burrito and ice cream nuggets. For the indecisive mutt, order a doggy flight with a sampling of any three menu items. There is also an on-site, full-service grooming salon if your pooch is looking for a new ‘do, and a self-bathing facility to clean up before heading home.

Bar K has a second location in St. Louis, MO, and is set to open a third in Oklahoma City, OK. Day passes for pups are available for a fee of $10 for the first dog and $5 for each additional dog, and there is a limit of four dogs per visit. Annual memberships are also available for $225 for the first dog and $25 for each additional pup.

Located in Chisholm Creek, Solo’s Park & Pub is where pups and people come to play. Home to an off-leash dog park divided into small and large sections with agility equipment, a bath, and a beautiful lawn for zoomies, you and your pooch won’t want to go home after last call. Get the good kind of bite from the bar, which offers catchy cocktails like The Salty Chihuahua, Hair of the Dog, and That's So Fetch. Fido can enjoy his own treat of chopped up chicken, hot dog, or burger, while you soak up the sauce with a grilled cheese sandwich, burger, hot dog, or nachos, among other treats.

Day passes for pups are available for a fee of $12. Monthly memberships start at $35, and annual memberships begin at $230.

Pub Dog Colorado

Restaurants that allow dogs to dine indoors can be hard to find. In fact, there is only one in the state of Colorado, but it’s a good one! Pub Dog welcomes leashed hounds inside the restaurant and on the outdoor patio. There are no servers, so head to the counter and order the Dog Pile Nachos for yourself and choose from a Pupsicle, Puppy Patty, Bacon, Bark Bowl, or Celery and Carrots from the dog menu. Fido can work it off later by gallivanting with friends in the 3,000-square-foot, fully fenced, off-leash dog park. On your best friend's birthday or “gotcha” day, celebrate by booking the entire dining room for your private event or simply show up ready to "pawty!" Don’t forget to pick up a doggy cake from nearby Wag n’ Wash!

Pub Dog adds a 4% membership fee to your bill at each visit.

One restaurant attached to a dog park is pretty cool, but how about six? The Shacks Dining & Dog Park is a unique dining experience near Dallas. Whatever you’re in the mood for, there’s a restaurant to satisfy your cravings from ramen, burgers and tacos, coffee, "grrrowlers" and more. Enjoy your food and drink of choice on the large open-air patio that overlooks a one-acre dog park under the shade of oak trees. Bacon’s Dog Park is divided into a section for small and large dogs, both areas equipped with agility equipment and benches where humans can rest while the pups play.

Well-behaved pups play for free in the park.

Good Dog Cafe

Every good boy and girl deserves a day out at Good Dog Cafe. Pups are welcome inside the canine-themed restaurant and on the outdoor patio. While you sip coffee, beer or wine, and dine on delicious locally sourced food, Fido can enjoy treats like a pup cup or fresh-baked biscuits. Once his belly is full, let your pooch play in the attached off-leash dog park which features agility equipment, obstacles, Frisbees and other toys, and on warm summer days, pools for cooling off. Before you pay your tab, check out the restaurant’s gift shop for collars, toys, and dog-centric everyday items for humans.

The dog park is free for all four-legged “pawtrons.”
