    Online Service

    I seen a lot of bad reviews on this place so I almost didn’t go. I parked and walked around first to kind of get a feel for the area and other restaurants. I’m glad I did because I ordered online first ( I like that restaurants started that during COVID ) and by the time I sat down outside with my dog Darcey the food and coffee were ready and brought out to me. You can’t go inside with your dog so I’m not sure what it looked like but the guy that brought out my food was super nice and nice to Darcey. if you are just looking for a a place to sit outside and not really ENJOY the restaurant then this is the place. BUT there are other places like Double Dogs you can enjoy the atmosphere and food with your dog. Overall not the absolute best experience but staff was friendly and food and coffee were really good! veggie options too

    DON’T bring Fido

    I left a review on google how this restaurant was misleading in that it is pet friendly and they replied with a unprofessional and passive aggressive response. The food was good but this is not a place you want to take your dogs. They don’t come outside to take your order and you can’t bring dogs inside so this is not somewhere you can go alone. Also you can’t drink alcohol outside so don’t plan on having a beer or mimosa outside. WILL NOT BE RETURNING. I DO NOT RECOMMEND.

    Go To Panera Down The Road

    Totally not worth waiting in line for soup, salad or sandwich because Panera is significantly better and far less crowded. Also, as other folks have mentioned it isn’t really dog friendly.

    My rating threshold:

    5 Bones: this establishment went out of its way to welcome our dog and the service we received was top notch!

    4 Bones: this establishment provided us great service and was dog friendly.

    3 Bones: this establishment was somewhat dog friendly but the service was moderate

    2 Bones: this establishment was somewhat dog friendly but the service was pretty bad.

    1 Bone: highly recommend not visiting this establishment.

    It’s named Fido because it used to be a pet store

    This place is about as dog friendly as other restaurants in the 12th south Hillsboro area in that you get a little covered area outside, and maybe a water bowl in a great walkable area. I get that some people might assume it’s super super dog friendly because of the name, but really it’s a play on previous tenants who had a pet store there. You can still see the old sign of the pet store outside and the 2 big bay windows they used to showcase in. I’ve been here with and without my pup and it’s always within the company of another friend to watch my dog or go run the order in. Their food is always delicious and my dog loves the attention of people as they pass by. If we’re out with the pup around Hillsboro getting some fresh air we either go here for some killer breakfast and coffee, or double dogs for some treats and nachos. I hear that if you call ahead, your order is usually ready to pick up within 10-15 minutes straight from the counter which may come in handy if I decide to walk my dog around the area by myself. 3 bones for dog friendliness, 4 stars for awesome food but don’t expect a Bloody Mary on the sidewalk for obvious reasons. Pro tip: entrance out Back is a little more secluded

    Save yourself a trip

    Similar to the two previous posts, I too was lured to Fido with the promise of a "super dog-friendly" establishment.

    Don't let the name fool you! I drove 35 minutes to enjoy brunch with my pooch, spent $6 on parking, only to walk up to a server who shared that there's no table service. You have to go in, wait in line and order your food and then find an open table out front (if you're lucky, because there's maybe 8 little bistro style tables w/chairs). This "server" (which I'm not really sure why they have servers since they don't serve) that I approached acted like I should have know this. Except they are always included as one of Nashville's pet friendly restaurants. Thanks Fido...not only did I lose $6, but I also lost interest in checking y'all out.

    Not exactly dog friendly

    I was disappointed to intentionally drive to the area just to go to Fido with my pup. Seating is on the sidewalk but there doesn't appear to be table service so that leaves us out as it was just me & my pup.

    wouldn't call it dog friendly.

    I was pretty disappointed with Fido. To say they're dog friendly is a joke, of course dogs are allowed in the sidewalk... While the food is good for a coffee shop/cafe it wasn't anything I couldn't find anywhere else. But the issue was that they advertise being super dog friendly only you can't bring them inside at all, which I understand except there's no table service and the only place to sit with your dog is out front at some small tables on the sidewalk. I'm one of those people that can be a little paranoid with leaving my dog unattended in a place I've never been before so I didn't appreciate the lack of table service. To make it worse, you can't drink alcohol outside... So really dog owners who want to eat at this "dog friendly restaurant" are penalized in the end.. Then it started to pour down rain and we got drenched...

    A nice spot

    While walking around Vanderbilt area with my dog (in July 2014), a local suggested Fido for lunch. (The name seemed dog friendly!). Found a few open tables outside. (But, a large line inside). ***Great tip: While asking 2 nice students to watch my dog, another guy suggested I phone the order ahead. If you call -- and pay with a credit card -- you can get your order to go and avoid the line! So, I phoned my order; then, 10 minutes later, picked it up at the bar!....Anyway, had veggie burger, sweet potato fries and coke.. food was good, plenty of room out front, and a nice spot... (I had brought my own treats and a bowl for water).
