Best Dog Friendly Restaurants in Atlanta
Atlanta is home to many different parks and green spaces. Dog lovers flock here to let their pups take advantage of the wide open areas. After a long day of romping around you're bound to get a little hungry. Most restaurants won't allow a dog on the premises, but there are few that are starting to cater to the canine crowd. Here's some spots in Atlanta that will allow both you and Fido to share a bone.
Dog Friendly Midtown Tavern
1.Midtown Tavern:Midtown Tavern is known for its dedication to local ingredients, but they also have a huge patio area. Most establishments only allow pets in the patio area, and some restrict pets to small dogs because of space. Midtown Tavern's space is roomy enough for even large dogs. They even serve special dog treats for your pet to enjoy while you enjoy their very large beer selection and dog-friendly crowd.

2.Park Grounds:Park Grounds is a one-stop-shop for you and your pet. It's adjacent to an off-leash dog park, and serves up the caffeine you need to keep up with your pet. They're probably the most dog-friendly restaurant in the city. They also have a full-service bar and serve lunch dishes. Like Midtown Tavern, they also serve dog treats. They even have ice-cream for dogs for those hot Atlanta summers.

If your tastes run toward outdoor dining and bar food, then there's plenty of places for you to enjoy a meal with your dog. If your current favorite restaurant has a patio, you can always try calling them in advance and see what their policies are. Some only allow a tie-up on the outside of the patio, or have a restriction on dog size inside. I invite you to take a special trip to one of the restaurants on this list too, to see how it should be done. Alas, we're not to the point where fine-dining locations will allow animals, but maybe one day we'll have a spot where we can. Restaurateurs, listen up! There's a market here!
