7 Best Dog-Friendly Restaurants in Boston, MA | BetterVet

Whether you are just visiting for a fun weekend getaway or you are a full-time Bostonian, Boston is a great place to hang out with your pet. Not only can you take your dog to one of the many off-leash dog parks, but when you get hungry, you and your dog can sample the local cuisine at one of these 7 dog-friendly restaurants in Boston. 

Before heading out to be social with your furry friend, double-check that your pup is healthy and up-to-date on their vaccinations before socializing with other dogs. If you are looking for a veterinarian in Boston, our mobile team will come to you. Schedule a same-day or next-day home visit or a telemedicine appointment if your pet isn’t feeling well or you have questions or concerns. 

1. Coppa

In Boston’s South End, Coppa offers indoor and outdoor dining with a dog-friendly outdoor patio. Coppa is a neighborhood Italian bistro with a rotating menu reflecting fresh, seasonal ingredients. Dogs are welcome in the outdoor seating area wherever the weather is nice. 

2. Cambridge Brewing Company

Just across the Charles River in Kendall Square, Cambridge Brewing Company offers craft beer as well as a menu of “pub eats with a local focus.” The outdoor area caters to dog owners, and it is not uncommon to see a dog at every table on the patio in the summer months.

3. The Friendly Toast

The Friendly Toast serves breakfast all day, has a full bar, and welcomes dogs - what could be better than that on a Sunday morning? With a location in Boston and one in the works for Cambridge, The Friendly Toast advertises a dog-friendly patio. 

4. Precinct Kitchen + Bar

Located in Loews Boston Hotel in the Back Bay neighborhood, the Precinct Kitchen + Bar is another popular restaurant known for its local cuisine and dog-friendly patio. Located in the Boston Police’s historic headquarters, they even host an annual “Pup Up” with a dog-friendly menu and vendors.

6. Evergreen Eatery

The Evergreen Eatery, located in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston, is part cafe, with an all-day breakfast and lunch menu, and part coffee/tea house. With a variety of hot and cold specialty drinks, bring your dog as your plus one and enjoy the fresh air on their pet-friendly patio.

7. Tasty Burger

Tasty Burger, located in the heart of Fenway, is an “old school” burger joint offering a variety of classic burgers and other sandwiches, fries, and milkshakes.
