Looking for a dog-friendly restaurant in Seattle?
It’s not always easy to find a place to eat and drink with your pup, even in a dog-obsessed city like Seattle. We sought out the restaurants, bars, and breweries that not only allow dogs but love having them there. And, of course, all of these places are long-time favorites that we would frequent with or without Fido.
We broke this guide into two parts: restaurants and bars/breweries. Dog-friendly breweries in particular are plentiful in Seattle, especially in Ballard, and most of them have food—a good tip to keep in mind!
Here are our favorite dog-friendly places in Seattle:
1. Mean Sandwich, Ballard
