With spring warming up and summer on the way, now is the perfect time to leash up Fido and explore outdoor dining with your dog in Pensacola. While health department regulations prohibit pets inside restaurants, many local joints welcome leashed, well behaved, and properly vaccinated dogs on their patios or outdoor seating areas.

With more than 100 Fido-friendly options to choose from, it’s no wonder that the Pensacola Bay Area was recently named one of the best small cities in the United States by National Geographic Travel. The publication specifically mentioned how pet-friendly Pensacola’s people and businesses are.

 

So don’t leave Fido at home! No matter where you're headed in Pensacola, we can point you toward a great restaurant, sidewalk cafe, brewpub, bar, coffee shop, or other eateries that will welcome Fido to join you at an outdoor table.

Bone Appetit!
