Seattle is teeming with dog-friendly parks and shops, but did you know many of the restaurants are also pet-friendly? So where should you eat with your pup while you’re in the Emerald City? We have a few places in mind.

#1. The Barking Dog Alehouse

The Barking Dog Alehouse has the pub grub your pup is craving, with decadent options ranging from pizza and tacos to burgers and subs. The best part is your woofer can enjoy these bites comfortably on the outdoor patio. Pet families rave about the servers' attentiveness and friendly attitude towards furry guests. The Barking Dog is definitely the spot for your next cheat meal!

#2. Pizzeria 22

If your fur-babies are in the mood for a wood-fired pie, head over to Pizzeria 22 for a dog-friendly pizza dinner. This isn't your typical pizzeria; this upscale joint serves up real Italian pies with imported ingredients such as soppressata, buffalo mozzarella, rapini, and prosciutto. Pizza'd out? Try one of the famous salads or sandwiches for something deliciously different. Doggy diners are welcome to hang out on the patio, which local diners describe as spacious and quiet.

#3. Le Pichet

Looking for a fancy spot for a pack dinner? Le Pichet will have your pup begging for seconds! At Le Pichet, you’ll dine on artisanal cheeses, handcrafted meat spreads, and fresh local veggies, all prepared by classically trained French chefs. Just don’t be surprised if Fido expects you to share! Well-behaved pups can enjoy a shady spot and a bowl of fresh water under the patio tables. “Bone” Appetit!

#4. Manao Thai Street Eats

Wanna try something new and adventurous? Check out Manao Thai Street Eats on Pine Street. This modern joint is bringing authentic Taiwanese cuisine to Seattle with mouthwatering appetizers, egg rolls, soups, and more pad thai variations than you could shake a stick at. Furry foodies are allowed to join their owners at the dog-friendly outdoor tables, but you should call ahead since seating is scarce.

#5. Porkchop & Company

Porkchop & Company is a whimsical pet-friendly cafe in Northwest Seattle. Despite the misleading name, Porkchop & Company is famous for its bagels and sandwiches, but it also offers pork chops from time to time. The spunky dish names are sure to garner a laugh, like the vegan mushroom sammie, “Living at Home is Such a Drag”. 

These sandwiches are far from average, with toppings like kimchi, porchetta, guajillo salsa, and tarragon cream cheese. Menu items change regularly, so there’s always something new to look forward to. Porkchop & Company’s hours vary by the day, and pet-friendly seating is limited to only a few outdoor tables. We recommend calling ahead to make sure they’re open and a pet-friendly table is available.

#6. Blueacre Seafood

This upscale seafood joint is the place to be on a Saturday night in Seattle. With hand-shucked oysters, expertly-crafted cocktails, and fresh-caught fish, it’s no surprise there’s often a line here. Customers rave about the creative seafood appetizers and succulent buttered shellfish. The accommodating staff will gladly serve you and your mild-mannered pooch on the dog-friendly patio. This restaurant is on the pricier side, but the food is worth every penny!

#7. Etta’s Seafood

Etta's Seafood is the spot for Pacific seafood in Seattle. Customers praise Etta's for its low-key location and pet-friendly atmosphere, but that's not what brings diners by the droves. The chefs prepare fresh-market seafood classics any way you could think of, from fried with lemons to sashimi-style. The restaurant’s roots show in its menu items, with dishes like cornbread and po' boys. Not a meat-eater? Not a problem! Etta's has offerings for all dietary restrictions, with many vegan and gluten-free dishes.

#8. Pomegranate Bistro

Pomegranate Bistro in Redmond prides itself on its Southern hospitality — a friendliness that extends to pups as well as people. If you like Southern food like fried chicken and mac and cheese, this spot will be right up your alley. Don't worry, diet-conscious diners; there's plenty of waist-friendly fixin's! The patio has a lovely atmosphere for a family gathering or romantic date with your fur-babies. There is a specific entrance for dogs, but you'll need to notify the host that you need a patio table. Don't sleep on Pomegranate Bistro when you’re in Redmond!

#9. Ristorante Picolinos

Searching for a swanky Italian eatery on the dog-friendly side of town? Book a reservation for Ristorante Picolinos, an upscale Italian joint and member of the Association Verace Pizza Napoletana. Here, you’ll find scratch-made ravioli, decadent antipasti, and other Italian classics like saltimboccas and masalas. Ristorante Picolinos encourages diners to bring their fur-babies and take a seat on the dog-friendly patio — now that's amore!

#10. Bark Espresso

Want a light bite and maybe a "puppuchino"? Check out Bark Espresso, Seattle's most dog-friendly cafe of all. Not only does this spot have exceptional coffee, pastries, quiches, and sammies, but it has a built-in dog park, too! Pups and caffeine — seriously, what more could a pet parent want?
