Best Dog-Friendly Restaurants in Denver Area | BetterVet

Let’s face it, eating is a necessity and what better way to enjoy a meal out than with your best furry friend? Before venturing out with your pup, it is important that they are fully vaccinated and protected. Make sure to book a house vet visit to make sure your friend is up to date on everything he/she needs. Here are a few places where you are welcome to bring your four-legged friend along in the Denver area.  


Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar

With locations in Aurora, Westminster, Erie, Johnstown and Colorado Springs, Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar have fantastic patios to relax and enjoy some food and cocktails. The best part is there is a “pup menu,” which includes a complimentary bowl of water, a hamburger or chicken bowl with a meat patty, rice and vegetables. Dogs are not allowed inside the restaurant but are welcome with open arms on the patio.


The Patio at Sloans

This restaurant not only boasts a dog-friendly patio area but also has a “bark bowl” on the menu. Their bark bowl is chicken and sweet potato flavored and has a bone broth base that is locally sourced and made in Boulder!   


Forest Room 5

For a unique experience that your pup can enjoy with you, head over to Forest Room 5 in the Highlands neighborhood to visit their forest themed dog-friendly patio. There is often live music happening around the fire. The patio boasts several firepits, an airstream trailer, a treehouse and a creek. It’s like camping while never leaving the city!


The Watering Bowl

This is Denver’s first off-leash dog park and restaurant bar. They have a 7,000 square foot dog park where your pup can play and run off leash while you eat, drink and be merry. In addition to the dog park, they also offer multiple TVs to watch your favorite team play, and indoor putt putt golf as well. Visit their website to view their menu and activities offered.  


The Ugly Dog Sports Cafe

Want to watch the UFC fight and let your dog run around? This is your spot then! There is an off leash dog area by the patio, and a dog menu as well. This place offers daily specials and a happy hour menu. 


Denver Beer Co

While this spot is not exactly a restaurant, they deserve to be on this list because they provide water bowls, and endless treats for your dog. The patio is dog-friendly, and in addition to the beer, they have daily rotating food trucks and dog friendly events often.


Highlands Cork and Coffee

The perfect neighborhood spot to hang out on their spacious patio with your four-legged bestie! They have water bowls and treats out for your dog, while you can enjoy a coffee and delicious panini. If you are wanting something a bit stronger, have them add a shot to your coffee or choose from a large wine selection. Upcoming events and a current menu can be found on their website.
