Dog Areas in Matlacha

4 Eateries

A census-designated place in Lee County, Florida, Matlacha is so small that, by all rights, it should be little more than a blip on the radar. However, don’t let its population, which is well under 1,000, fool you. There’s plenty to do in Matlacha, especially if you’re a dog lover! Whether you’re a local or just visiting for a time, bring your furry friend to enjoy the scenic area as well as any of the selection of restaurants you have to choose from. With choices that are highly rated by all accounts, it’s no question that a dine-out doggy day trip is in order if you find yourself in this tiny town. 

If you’re looking for a mellow place to get some good chow, take your pup on over to the Blue Dog Bar and Grill, where there are only a few dog-friendly tables, so you’ll want to get there early to land one. It’ll be well worth beating the lunch and dinner rush, as your dog will be treated like royalty at the Blue Dog. They’ll be provided ice cold water while you choose from an extensive seafood menu that makes an effort to reflect the local culture.

You and your hound will fall head over paws for Matlacha!
