The next time you want to grab a bite, consider bringing your pooch along with you at one of these dog-friendly restaurants in Chicago. We’ve rounded up our favorite pup-friendly spots that offer outdoor seating, so you can safely enjoy a meal with Fido by your side.
Head to The Moonlighter for a laid-back, dog-friendly atmosphere. Their menu features comfort food like burgers, sandwiches, wings, and lots more. When it comes to drinks, they offer fun options like draft rose or a hot spiced cider with rum or whiskey — an ideal choice this time of year.
At Crosby’s Kitchen, you’ll find Midwestern-inspired favorites like monkey bread, rotisserie meats, and lobster deviled eggs. They also offer some to-die-for side dishes like homemade biscuit bacon potato cakes and mashed potatoes. Pups are welcome, so bring yours along with you.
Located in a 100-year-old renovated garage in Logan Square, Park & Field is another dog-friendly spot we love. Thanks to their patio, you can enjoy delicious offerings outside by a fire pit. When you’ve finished your meal, stay for a game of bocce on one of their courts. Check out their Doggie Halloween event on Thursday, Oct. 28!
Stop by one of Big Star’s three locations for lunch, dinner, or brunch. The dog-friendly Mexican restaurant has tacos, salads, and a massive spirits selection. Choose from their vast list of tequila, whiskey, mezcal, and bourbon. Or if you’re having brunch, try a Bloody Mary.
With dog-friendly locations in Old Town, Lincoln Square, and the Soup Loop, Roots Handmade Pizza is the perfect spot to grab a pie with your pooch. Made in the Quad Cities style, Roots offers a variety of unique pies featuring tasty toppings and their famous malted crust.
