San Diego is nicknamed "America's Finest City", and with all the dog-friendly pubs and restaurants in town, we're sure your fur-baby would agree! All these dog-friendly options can leave you wondering where you should go to unwind with your woofer, but luckily, we have you covered. Here are 5 dog-friendly bars in San Diego where you can quench your thirst with your furry compadre.
Sally's Fish House and Bar is described as "sophisticated seafood by the San Diego Bay", and we couldn't agree more. This upscale seafood restaurant and bar has all the makings for a luxurious night out with your pup. Feel the cool sea breeze in your hair (or fur!) as you wine and dine on their dog-friendly patio overlooking the beautiful San Diego bay,
Enjoy the view as you feast on Sally's homemade delicacies like specialty crab cakes with lemon basil aioli and mahi-mahi tacos. Sally's also boasts a fantastic doggy menu with plenty of fish and protein options to suit any pooch's taste buds. Servers will bring out Tucker's choice entree on a bone-shaped plate alongside their signature water bowls to drink from. Sally's won't leave you thirsty, either, with an eclectic selection of wine, beer, and cocktails. Be sure to try their "Insta-worthy" Hurricane Sally, made with white rum, coconut rum, tuaca, pineapple juice, and blue curacao.
Backyard Kitchen & Tap is a "furrific" place to enjoy a cold brew any day of the week. Relax on the spacious dog-friendly patio while you enjoy a refreshing beverage and some hot appetizers with your best bud. Backyard Kitchen & Tap hosts live music every Wednesday, which is sure to make your hump day a little more exciting. There's no better place to be on game night than here, with big-screen TVs for you and Fido to watch the game in style.
Slater's 50/50 is a super dog-friendly sports bar that specializes in burgers, bacon, and, of course, brews. This bar has an extensive list of craft beers on tap ranging from stouts to blonde ales.
Stop by during Happy Hour for some cheap brews and appetizers like bacon mac and cheese balls and their famous Kona chicken lettuce wraps. Speaking of appetizers, did we mention they have a signature bacon flight?! Rumor has it Slater's even has a secret doggy menu for their furry patrons.
If you're looking to get into a cold beer and a slice of pie, look no further than Pizza Port on Bacon Street. Wet your whistle with one of their house-crafted brews as you relax on their dog-friendly patio.
Pizza Port has 16 different pizza combinations you can choose from, or you can create your own. Not in the mood for a whole pie? Grab one of their giant slices to go with your pint of suds. Be ready to share your crust, because Fido will be "pawsitively" drooling over the smells coming out of this bar!
Station Tavern and Burgers is a no-frills dive bar with fantastic food, service, and beer. The covered outdoor patio is both dog- and people-friendly, with cozy family-style seating and heaters to keep both two- and four-legged patrons warm in the winter. Sip on one of Station's many draft beers or order one of their famous cocktails — you definitely don't want to leave without trying their Red Margarita!
Station's servers will happily provide your woofer with water to drink, or you can bring along some non-alcoholic dog wine for Fido to enjoy. The tavern has a limited food menu, but it's jam-packed with flavor. The chefs make everything from scratch, including the dressings and sauces.
