Atlanta is definitely a dog-friendly town and this list will highlight some of the coolest, tastiest, and most fun places where you can dine with your pup.

Take a look below at the best dog-friendly restaurants Atlanta has to offer.


This cafe is also a dog groomer Atlanta! One of the more unique combos we’ve seen, Perk-N-Pooch combines delicious coffee, milkshakes and more with a full-service dog groomer.

The grooming is done by appointment, so make sure to check out their website before heading over.


Publico Kitchen & Tap offers Latin-Asian inspired cuisine combined with craft beer and craft cocktails. They are committed to delivering fresh, made-from-scratch tacos, burgers, salads, cocktails and more.

Of course, they are also on this list because they are dog-friendly and allow dogs on their patio. They even partner with the Atlanta Humane Society to feature a delicious puppy menu that your dog will absolutely adore!

The Local

With rickety wood booths, bare brick walls, dartboards abound, a karaoke stage, weekly trivia nights, and a string-light-lined patio, The Local is the epitome of the ideal dive bar. The standard bar food you’ll order separately at the walk-up counter is a glutenous affair with greasy sliders, saucy hot wings sided by crispy french fries.

Of course, dogs are welcome on the patio, which has a great view of downtown.


Located in Atlanta’s historic Old Fourth Ward, Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall is the first outdoor-oriented bar and restaurant to open along the BeltLine’s Eastside Trail, at mile marker 9.25.

A perfect place to stop after a long walk along the trail, Ladybird offers elevated campfire cuisine for dinner, lunch, and weekend brunch, and focuses on sharable dishes that rotate based on local availability. The beverage program features craft cocktails, wine, local beer, alongside housemade juices and sodas.

Fetch Park and Ice House

Fetch Park is Atlanta’s first full-service dog park bar and is located minutes from the Atlanta BeltLine in Atlanta’s historic Old Fourth Ward neighborhood. This is one of the most dog-friendly restaurants Atlanta has to offer.

Fetch Park features outdoor TVs, wifi throughout the park, cooling stations, a dog bath area, as well as attendants (Bark Rangers) making sure all the dogs are playing nicely.
