Why should your dog stay home while you have all the fun? There are tons of dog-friendly restaurants around Philly – here are some of the best places to hit up a Yappy Hour or dine al fresco with your pooch.

Cantina Los Caballitos

1651 E Passyunk Avenue, East Passyunk
Take your pup on a date to Cantina Los Caballitos. The Mexican restaurant welcomes dogs with diners seated in the outdoor patio. Dogs receive a complimentary water bowl, while humans can chow on guac and tequila flights.

Cherry Street Pier

121 N Christopher Columbus Boulevard, Old City
With a nice breeze and gorgeous views of the Ben Franklin Bridge, Cherry Street Pier is one of the best places to hang for the summer. Although they must be kept on leashes, dogs are invited to join owners as they buy drinks and snacks from the Garden at Cherry Street Pier or Rita’s Italian Ice.

Evil Genius Beer Garden

1727 N Front Street, Kensington
Next time you want to drink a “Stacy’s Mom” IPA or enjoy a “Purple Monkey Dishwasher” porter, feel free to bring your furry friend to Evil Genius Beer Company’s beer garden stationed next door to the brewpub. Water bowls are available for thirsty pups.

Craft Hall

901 North Delaware Avenue, Northern Liberties
Craft Hall just announced a huge new expansion that includes a dog park where dogs can go off-leash in more than 2,000 square feet of fenced-in park space. Dogs will enjoy the menu of new dog cocktails and even Lost Bread Co.-made treats, while humans can sample Craft Hall’s broad selection of beers and food.

Fiore Fine Foods

757 South Front Street, Queen Village
Treat your dog to a walk through the parks at Front Street before settling in for a fried chicken sandwich for brunch at Fiore. The staff will be more than happy to bring out a bowl of water for the dog, and you’ll be satisfied knowing everyone gets what they wanted.

Memphis Taproom

2331 E. Cumberland Street, Kensington
Stop what you’re doing and go look at @dogsofmemphistaproom on Instagram. See how happy those dogs look? Your pup deserves the same. The bar welcomes pets in its summer beer garden, open at 11:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. Friday and Saturday. The taproom closes at 2 a.m. everyday.

Morgan’s Pier

221 N. Christopher Columbus Boulevard, Old City
That margarita will taste even sweeter this summer when you enjoy it at Morgan’s Pier’s Yappy Hour. The Delaware Riverfront destination holds monthly events (every first Monday of the month, from noon to 8 p.m.) for you and your pup. Free giveaways are enough to bring out the crowds at any event, but Morgan’s Pier partnered with Tito’s Handmade Vodka to ensure a fun time with specialty cocktails and all proceeds benefiting the PSPCA. Dogs will be available to adopt, as well.


227 S 18th Street, Rittenhouse
Bonjour, chiens. Of course the best Stephen Starr restaurant in Philly allows man’s best friend to dine by your side. The sceney eatery welcomes dogs in its outdoor dining area. Dogs receive a complimentary bowl of water, and after supper, you can take them for a romp through Rittenhouse Square across the street.

Pentridge Station

5116 Pentridge Street, West Philadelphia
Tucked away in a cozy neighborhood in West Philly, Pentridge Station plays host to a rotating cast of food pop-ups. The space, which used to be an abandoned lot and is now a gorgeous open space with lots of seating and flowers, is an ideal spot for dogs to sniff around.

Sunset Social

129 South 30th Street, University City
Not only is Sunset Social dog-friendly, it also has a small dog park set in the center of the green, so you can let your pup run free for a few minutes while you wait for your burger and fries. Yappy Hour is hosted every Tuesday from 5 to 7 p.m., when Morris Animal Refuge is on-site with adoptable pups. You can also purchase a $3 bandana branded with mini corndogs that goes to benefit the refuge.


2229 Spruce Street, Fitler Square
Sally’s spacious outdoor seating allows for pups to make themselves comfortable (even if they will be jealous of your sourdough pizza and natural wine). The staff, who are some of the nicest people in Philadelphia, are happy to give your dog a rub behind the ears and bring out a bowl of water.

White Dog Cafe

Multiple locations
With a name like that, of course it’s dog-friendly. Paintings of pups line the walls and statues of schnauzers stand guard at the doors, and dogs may join human diners at outdoor tables. White Dog servers provide treats and water bowls for furry guests.

Wissahickon Brewing Company

3705 W. School House Lane, East Falls
How many times has your dog been stuck with plain water while you enjoy an artisanal IPA? Wissahickon Brewing Company shares that grainy goodness with pups who visit their Tasting Room, as spent grain from beer production is used to produce treats for canine companions. And with special events held at the bar (like adoption days and pet costume contests), Wissahickon is a must-visit spot this summer.
