Dog sleeping in Pittsburgh, PA

Dog Friendly Restaurants and Bars in Pittsburgh

There are so many places for you to enjoy some good food and delicious drinks with your best friend by your side.


For breakfast on a nice day, give Square Cafe in Regent Square a try. Get there early though, Square Cafe is a popular destination with something for everyone (including vegan and gluten-free diners!) and fills up fast. Another place to grab a delicious and inventive brunch is Coco Cafe in Lawrenceville. Dogs are welcome at both restaurants' outdoor tables. 

If you're just looking for a cup of joe, you'll want to get your caffeine fix at Big Dog Coffee shop on the South Side. It's super pet-friendly and you are welcome to enjoy your coffee on their outside patio with your dog by your side.

Right on the river, Jerome Bettis' Grille 36 is a perfect place for you and your puppy pal to enjoy a nice breeze and a great burger. Your dog will enjoy the patio seating and feeling the breeze in his fur. This sporty spot will make sure your pup is treated like an MVP by providing a special water bowl at lunch!

If you like the South Side, treat your furry friend to lunch at Double Wide Grill. Their large outdoor seating section is super dog friendly and a great place to hang out in the summer. Double Wide is also vegan/vegetarian friendly and even offers a doggie menu for Fido!


Try Redfin Blues at the Waterfront. Not only will you get to sit outdoors with views of the river, but you'll get to see bicyclists enjoying the waterfront paths. Try the all-you-can-eat crab legs! 

If you're in the North Side, grab some grub at Federal Galley. This unique food hall concept with several different chefs and restaurant concepts in one location makes Federal Galley a must-try. A new outdoor beer garden offers dog-friendly seating outside. This is a great place to eat AND drink! 

Out for a Drink

Check out the Strip District and stop for a drink at Mullaney's Harp & Fiddle. This authentic Irish pub is a great option for you and your dog. Enjoy the live music and dancing at this lively spot.

A Pittsburgh classic, East End Brewing Co., welcomes well-behaved dogs inside the spacious tasting room, or at picnic tables in the outdoor seating area. This is a great way to get a taste of the city with your best friend.

If Shadyside is more your thing, stroll through the shops and give your feet a rest at Cappy's Cafe. Your pup might meet some new neighborhood friends while hanging out on Walnut Street! If you catch Cappy's on a Saturday, there are $4 Long Island iced teas all day! 

The Grist House Craft Brewery is one of our favorites! It's a family owned and operated brewery with an all-seasons deck and spacious outdoor beer garden. The best part? It's completely dog friendly! Enjoy the friendly, and "yinzer" vibe while mingling with other dogs...(And humans).
