So you’re looking for dog-friendly Seattle restaurants—I’ve been there. Maybe it’s been a long day at work and you don’t feel like cooking, but the guilt of leaving your dog behind is too much to bear. Why not bring your canine pal along?
It’s no secret that I don’t cook a lot, so let me share with you my favorite restaurants to bring along my dog, Lilly. It’s not just micro and nano-breweries that’ll welcome your furry friends with open arms. Seattle is one of the nation’s most dog-friendly cities, so it follows that many restaurants in Seattle and the surrounding area encourage doggie dining guests. Check out our list of dog-friendly Seattle eateries!
The best dog-friendly Seattle restaurants
460 N 36th St
Always crawling with dogs of all types, Norm’s is the perfect Fremont watering hole to stroll over to when you’re craving a burger and some house-made potato chips. Norm’s is one of the most dog-friendly bars I’ve ever been to; dog portraits on the walls, never-ending treats from the biscuit bowl, and Bowser Beer, a brothy bottled (non-alcoholic) treat they’ll serve to your dog while you dine!
In Mount Baker
1425 31st Ave S
That’s Amore is a dog-friendly neighborhood favorite for Mount Baker residents and their dogs alike. A cozy Italian kitchen and a scant glance at their Yelp reviews will reveal folks raving about their staff and food. They’ll even serve your dog a meatball.

Dog owners are obsessed with this dog-friendly pub in Belltown. Play board games, billiards, or one of the pub’s guitars while dining on gumbo, pork sandwiches or Jaeger schnitzels. We won’t say anything if you sneak a bite to your dog.
