Dog friendly Restaurants San Diego
We know your pup would much rather be out on the town with you than watching TV alone at home. San Diego is a great place for dogs to dine out with many great dining experiences for both you and your furry friend! Well-behaved, leashed dogs are allowed at the following restaurants and cafés. As policies allowing dogs may change, please call the restaurant to confirm they are still pet-friendly. Here are just a few of our favorites:
- Only take a well-trained dog that socializes well with people and other dogs.
- Always keep your dog leashed and at a safe distance from other diners.
- Bring your own food and portable water bowls in case the restaurant doesn't provide them.
- Keep your dog content by providing special treats and chew toys.
