No one likes to leave their dog at home when they go out to eat. 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 tasty 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.
Another one of our favorite dog-friendly restaurants in Chicago is The Dock at Montrose Beach, where you can treat yourself to beach views with your pup by your side. Order the cheese curds and a beer from the menu for a relaxing, low-key meal on the waterfront.
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. And thanks to their patio, you can enjoy their delicious offerings outside by a fire pit. When you’ve finished your meal, stay for a game of bocce on one of their courts.
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.
