13 Dog-Friendly Miami Bars and Restaurants

Where to dine with the furry best friend

View as Map

More and more South Florida restaurants are recognizing that South Floridians are attached to furry companions. As such, eateries are now pet friendly allowing patrons to bring four legged buddies along to enjoy a meal. Here are some of the best spots of locally owned and operated restaurants with the best dog menus— including filet mignon, tacos, and non-alcoholic beer — and treats for men and women's best friends, too.

Editor’s Note: A number of South Florida restaurants have resumed indoor and outdoor dining services. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for onsite dining, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the Florida Health Department’swebsite. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines. For those wanting to find the best takeout and dining options throughout Miami, please visit here.
