the staff was wonderful. the waitress brought Dori her own glass of water and offered a bowl but I brought my own. Food was great, atmosphere awesome.
- KristenJun. 27, 2020Rules have changed?
Ive been to the Double Wide more than once in the past, albeit years ago, and found the rules described by others below to be cumbersome and a little annoying. However, today's (post-COVID) visit was different. They relocated their dog friendly area and our server came up to the other side of the gate to serve us. We had real glasses and plates for our meal & still dog friendly bowls etc outside. Not sure if this change is COVID related, or permanent, but we had a great experience! Would return!

I went there with my dog several times. The location is nice, in The middle of the Southside. The dog patio is a closed area, apart from everyone else. Servers do not bring you foods/drinks when you are sitting there and, overall, only interact with you by screaming “what is your order ?” or “your food is there!” from the area outside of the patio. You have to pick up your food, drinks and tab yourself, on a counter. In addition, food is served in plastic plates and glasses when you are in the dog patio, which gives the experience a picnic vibe. Other than this, food is decent.

We brought our dog to explore downtown Pittsburgh with us and were so excited to find a place he could eat. We sat outside in the designated dog area. They had clean water bowls and a water cooler for us to give our dog something to drink. The dog area is counter service so if you go to the counter, your waiter will come out and help you. The food was amazing and they even had a dog menu for our little guy. He got chicken and some peanut butter! Our meals were brought out to the counter and we went and grabbed them from the waitress. They are served on disposable plates so that if a dog jumps, nothing falls and breaks! This place has so much charm and we will defiantly go back when we are in Pittsburgh again!

I used to live in PGH and have seen this place work hard to stay dog friendly despite pressure from health officials. Food is very good - haven't had anything I didn't like yet. For the dog area, it is separate, but last time I was there (spring 2017) we had umbrellas, and real plates. South Side neighborhood has lots of spots with dog bowls outside their businesses.
- JylMore than a year agoNot sure I'd say dog friendly
First of all, the food was great. And we chose chicken for Peanut and asked that it be chopped up because he has no teeth. They did that gladly and he gobbled it up. The staff was friendly and polite. But...they have the rules from the ACHD (Allegheny County Health Dept) on a plastic card on the table so you know what you can and can't do. You can clean up and sanitize the area if your dog has an accident. I don't mind cleaning but just what do they mean by sanitizing? Will they give me a bucket and mop? Luckily, didn't have to find out. You can't let your dog sit on a chair or on your lap. Seriously? I couldn't find that in the health code rules on the ACHD's website. The food comes on paper plates and you go up to the counter to get it, along with condiments, napkins and plastic ware. The waitress will not enter the dog area. Why? I could see if there were a lot of dogs or some bad behavior, but we were the only ones. Can't they use discretion? Also the dog area, which has several tables, doesn't have umbrellas on most so if it was crowded, you might be sitting in the hot sun. And it's on the side of the restaurant that is the main street. You are a sidewalk away from semi's, and all other traffic on a very busy street. I don't go out to eat to bus my own table. I've never been to a dog friendly restaurant that made me feel like a second class citizen until I went here. But if you don't have your dog with you and don't mind paying about $10 and up for most dishes, you would probably enjoy it.
- TamiMore than a year agoNot bad considering
Unfortunately there are trade offs to be made to be able to dine with your pets, you must sit in a segregated area, you must walk to your server and bus your own table and tolerate drinking from paper cups and using disposable plates and silverware but that said that is the trade off that the management has had to make in order to be able to serve pet parents and their pets. Thank you for dealing with the draconian PA health codes so we can bring our beloved pets along with us while we dine!
- LisaMore than a year agoVery Dog Unfriendly
I can't believe that this place claims to be "dog friendly" i have only been there once and that is enough! Fine place to go with your dog if you don't mind being treated like you have the plague. You have to walk to the waitress because they won't step foot in the dog area and they feed you with plastic dishes and paper cups. REALLY?
- ChrisMore than a year agoA catch about this being dog friendly.
One thing to keep in mind here, is the dog friendly area consists of two specific tables. They obviously let people without dogs use them, as they should. However, you cannot reserve them in advance at all though, as its first come first serve. So, unless you have a lot of time to kill, like maybe an hour until someone vacates one of the two tables, you may be out of luck.

Recently there was a complaint by a non-dog-loving companion so the "dog park" is it's own separate part to the restaurant but don't let this deter you. The staff was great despite the segregation. They provide clean dog bowls cool water for the pups and the area is pretty well fenced in so you and your four legged friends can enjoy yourselves. Great atmosphere
