Pawfect Lunch

Plums Restaurant

We stopped in for lunch. My husband went inside to tell them we had three dogs and the server said he’d meet us around back. He was there with our dog-friendly table ready and there’s a great river view. Food was delicious too!

Shoreline Brewery

Amazing service, great dog-friendly patio. They brought our pups a bowl of ice water and staff stopped by to pet them and even showed us pics of their own dogs. Also - great food and beer!

Very nice!

Boyd's Key West Campground

So impressed with thee cleanliness and care taken at Boyd’s. We have been staying at a waterfront tent site and love it. The sites are a little close together, but not too close. Nice pool area, SUP and kayak rentals available. The staff is so friendly and dogs are everywhere! We will definitely stay again.

Best deck in Spartanburg

Mata's Mexican Bar & Grill

We had a great lunch on the large, open deck at Mata's. The manager came out to chat with us and told us about his Dalmatian featured on the menu. The food was delicious and our dogs loved sitting in the sunshine. They also have an extensive beer list.

Evansville Staple

G D Ritzy's

I've been enjoying Ritzy's burgers, shoestring fries and ice cream my whole life. They have a couple of tables outside to eat with your dog. Nothing fancy, but the food is worth a visit.

Very Dog Friendly!

Westfield / Lake Erie KOA

We tent camped at this KOA for one night. Yes, it is right next to the interstate so you can hear some traffic, but that didn't bother us or the dogs. Many other campers had their dogs with them as well. Even the owner's Cocker Spaniel was around and welcoming pets.
