There’s no shame in admitting we’re all far more comfortable socializing with dogs than we are with other humans. That said, life (unfortunately) doesn’t stop when you have a dog. Sometimes you need to take them with you to things - or more importantly, seek out opportunities to show them off.

Seattle is an extremely pet-friendly city, but when it comes to restaurants, not all are sitting there with open arms. So we’ve tracked down the 15 best places that go above and beyond for your best friend (and where you can get a solid meal or a couple of drinks for yourself). These aren’t limited to patios - we’ve marked the spots where you can bring your dog inside, too.

THE SPOTS

Your dog is allowed inside (and outside) of The Duchess, which means it’s great for when sitting outside isn’t in the cards. Here you’ll find pool tables, UW alumni watching sports, and fried bar snacks that are probably coming from freezer bags (which are exactly what you want with pitchers of beer and what Penelope the puggle wants you to accidentally drop on the floor).

Norm's Eatery & Ale House

$$$$
$$$$ 460 N 36th St

Norm’s is a great little neighborhood spot to bring your friends for a casual drink, and it’s another place where your dog can hang out inside, which is ideal considering that the front patio is tiny. It’s a dark dive filled with dog-themed wall art and classic bar food, as well as what we’d imagine to be classic bar food for dogs, like cheese donuts and doggie made specifically for your four-legged friend. But chances are that your dog would rather have your burger.

Dogs allowed inside

Fremont Brewing Company

$$$$
$$$$ 1050 N 34th St

We’ve all blown off chopping turnips on Thanksgiving to drink and watch the National Dog Show instead. Going to Fremont Brewing is the same thing, only it’s not Thanksgiving and nobody’s asking you to cut up root vegetables. This brewery with a massive picnic table-lined patio is the who’s who of the Seattle good boys and girls, and it’s where to drink tasty beer, bring takeout to eat, and make everyone jealous of your dog.

Dogs allowed inside

Super Six

$$$$
$$$$ 3714 S Hudson St

You didn’t get a dog just so you could go to brunch without her. You got a dog so you could take her to the picnic table-covered patio at Super Six and have brunch with her. This spot has Hawaiian things like pancakes with macadamia nut butter, french fries topped with kalua pork, and eggs benedict with kimchi hollandaise. Don’t forget the bottomless mimosas - but your dog can’t have any, even if she’s 21 in dog years.

The Woodlands Pizza

$$$$ 8314 Aurora Ave N

There are dog-friendly spots where it seems like there are more canines than humans, and then there’s The Woodlands. It’s a great pizzeria in Phinney Ridge where your dog can sit under the table in peace without being bombarded by six other pups that want a butt sniff. Order a chicken bacon ranch pie and the arugula and grape salad that’s way better than it needs to be.

Mean Sandwich

$$$$
SandwichesDeli  in  Ballard
$$$$ 1510 NW Leary Way

So, you agreed to a double-date with that couple from the dog park, and there’s a good chance things could get awkward, because all they talk about is their Australian Shepherd’s hijinks, and that’s either because you’ve only spent time together at the dog park, or they’re crazy people. Go to Mean Sandwich, where the patio’s nice and big for your dogs. The delicious modern deli creations come out really fast, and there’s also a ping pong table to help break the ice.

Fiddler's Inn

$$$$
$$$$ 9219 35th Ave NE

Fiddler’s Inn Pub has the best patio you probably didn’t know about. It’s really just one long row of umbrella-covered picnic tables, but that means one long clubhouse for young JoJo to sniff around and lick artichoke dip off of the concrete. The rest of the customers and staff will likely give your dog a lot of pets, and you will likely not notice because of the plate of nachos in front of you.

Chuck's Hop Shop

$$$$ 2001 E Union St

If you want to drink from a great selection of beer while getting your dog to socialize with someone other than Amazon delivery people, Chuck’s Hop Shop is a great idea. It’s part tap house, and part convenience store where you can snack on gummy worms and chips while playing board games. Just watch Rolo like a hawk - he’s got his eye on the dice.

Dogs allowed inside

Beer Star

$$$$ 9801 16th Ave SW

Beer Star is pretty similar to Chuck’s, except instead of ice cream pints and Chex Mix, you can buy cheese, meats, and crackers to go with your beer. Better yet, your dog can chill near you and wait to see if you’re going to fling some salami across the table. You could also grab takeout at Li’l Woody’s Anju to bring back too, but unfortunately for your dog, there’s less of a chance you’ll throw away a burger or a bowl of kimchi fried rice.

Dogs allowed inside

Flatsick Pub

Flatstick Pub

$$$$
$$$$ 240 2nd Ave S

It’s pretty easy to have a good time with your dog while playing mini golf at Flatstick Pub. What’s harder is keeping your dog from finding every visible golf ball and either nudging it with his note or immediately trying to eat it. Drink some beer and eat tacos from Manu’s - it’s all bound to be great. Just make sure you know that the South Lake Union location does not allow dogs, so don’t put the wrong one in your GPS.

Dogs allowed inside

Harry's Fine Foods

$$$$
$$$$ 600 Bellevue Ave E

You could bring your dog to Cal Anderson or Volunteer Park and drink wine out of a Nalgene while occasionally throwing a tennis ball without watching to see where it goes. But there’s a better way to spend some Capitol Hill time outside with Digby, and that’s dinner at Harry’s Fine Foods. The patio feels kind of like a house backyard, so your dog will feel comfortable among the plants and old wooden furniture. You’ll feel comfortable among the lasagna, burgers, and negronis.

Bongos

$$$$
$$$$ 6501 Aurora Ave N

Maybe you thought it would be fun to bring your dog to the beach, but found out quickly that she likes to howl at the ocean. That’s not great for overall sandcastle productivity. Eating at Bongos, however, is a great consolation prize, because it’s a patio restaurant covered in sand. Your dog gets all of the fun of a beach without any open water or washed-up jellyfish blobs. And you get delicious Caribbean food like spicy shrimp, tostones, and pulled pork sandwiches.

Sam's Tavern

$$$$
$$$$ 1024 E Pike St

You might have already known that Sam’s Tavern can be credited as the very first Red Robin - bottomless steak fries and all. What you might not have known is that your dog can waltz right in behind you and hang out while you drink Bloody Marys topped with slider garnishes.

Dogs allowed inside

The Woods

The Woods

$$$$
$$$$ 4700 Ohio Ave S

The Woods is a great place to bring your dog and drink beer and cider slushies all day. Spend a few hours here playing darts, shuffleboard and other games while snacking on burgers, mac and cheese, or fried brussels sprout caesars from Bread & Circuses (the popular food truck has a brick-and-mortar location in-house).

Dogs allowed inside

Liberty

$$$$
$$$$ 517 15th Ave E

Liberty is a cool bar on Capitol Hill that serves many excellent cocktails, sushi, and just happens to allow dogs inside and outside. It’s one of those exciting-during-the-week kind of places, and not just because they play great music. Their spicy tuna roll with sesame oil (which is one of our favorite bites of sushi in town) also has something to do with it. Grab one of the big sofas, let your Golden Retriever sit on it, and shove your date aside.
