Dog Areas in Jekyll Island

8 Eateries

One of the Golden Isles of Georgia, Jekyll Island is a wonderful vacation spot where you and your canine companion are sure to have a doggone good time. The island is relatively secluded, with a low population but plenty of hotels and sights to see in your time there. With dog-friendly restaurants as well as plenty of dog-friendly lodging, your pup pal will thank you for bringing them to this little slice of paradise. 

More importantly, they’ll enjoy the aptly named Jekyll Island Beach, where you’re free to take your leashed doggy to explore the number of subset beaches. Driftwood Beach, located therein, is known to be one of the less crowded sections of the beach, but if you choose this stop, be sure to look out for mean and spiky bushes with burrs that will stick to your friend’s fur. If you’re sure to watch your step and keep and eye on your wily woofer, however, the two of you are sure to have a blast while you’re here! Just be sure to bring plenty of doggy waste bags, as well as some fresh drinking water and your trusty collapsible water bowl. What more could you need?

    Open Monday through Saturday and located towards the southern tip of Jekyll Island, you’ll find Red Bug Motors Pizza. With a number of Italian dishes to choose from, you really can’t go wrong here! They’re most well-known for their delicious and fresh baked pizzas, though. Settle in on the outdoor patio and order yourself a slice of one of their delicious pies, including a unique alfredo pizza. Your dog is free to join you at any of the outdoor tables; just be sure to bring plenty of drinking water for your furry friend to rehydrate -- there’ll be lots of drooling!

    On the opposite tip of the island is another dining location that must be a stop on your doggy to-do list. Serving a wide selection of tasty and freshly made Mexican fare, Tortuga Jacks is one of the most dog-friendly areas in the city. The staff is so welcoming to dogs, they’ll likely be happier to see your pup than your spouse! After all, as the sign on the front door says, all pets, most husbands, and some children should be kept on leashes at all times. What a great sense of humor!

    Right smack dab in the middle of the island, in Central Jekyll Park proper, is where you’ll find Beach House Restaurant and Tap Room.

You’ll need to bring water for your pup, and potentially some tasty treats for them to munch on as well. You shouldn’t be the one having all the delicious fun -- after all, your dog is the real star of the show here!

    #4 Southeast Saint Simons Island

    If you’re looking to run off some of that tasty food you enjoyed in Jekyll Island, you should make the short trip to Southeast Saint Simons Island, directly above Jekyll Island in the same island group. As one might guess, it is home to Saint Simons Island Beaches, a stretch of miles of beach where your dog can explore freely off-leash during the off-season. Since Saint Simons is in a particularly warm location, your dog will still enjoy tiptoeing around the tides even outside of the summer months. Just be sure to keep it clean!

    Last but not leash-t, make your way to the very tip of the southern part of Saint Simons Island, where you’ll need to refuel after burning off all the energy from your trip. Here, you’ll find Iguanas Seafood, where a number of delicious delicacies are offered. From their surf-and-turf style menu, you can choose from a simple sandwich to their delicious alfredo. Your pup will be allowed to join you on the street patio seating area, and they will be provided with fresh drinking water, courtesy of the chef! It’s a perfect final stop on your doggy day trip.
