5 Dog-Friendly Restaurants in NOLA

Café Amelie

Located on Royal St, Café Amelie is known for its delicious food, but more importantly for the free water and bacon, it provides to its four-legged patrons. The restaurant features a

landscaped courtyard and an extremely pet-friendly staff.

Lucy’s Retired Surfers Bar & Restaurant

The quintessential surfer’s restaurant and bar, Lucy’s serves tacos, burgers, a variety of seafood and specialty drinks, most famously the purple shark attack or the notorious scorpion shot. They also

have a dog-friendly menu, and every Wednesday is Waggin’ Wednesday featuring specials like Lucy’s

Puppy Popsicle. Dogs are welcome both inside and out.

The Bulldog

With a dog-friendly patio and one of the largest selections of draft beer, The Bulldog is a must for puppy pals. The food is traditional bar food, but the beer ranges from pilsners to sours in between. The Bulldog has misters and a hose to keep the dogs cool and dog bowls throughout the patio.

Parkway Tavern

Parkway Tavern has been serving authentic New Orleans cuisines for over 100 years while offering spacious outdoor seating that welcomes dogs. Parkway is also known for being a staple on all of President Obama’s visits to the Big Easy. With award-winning fried shrimp po'boys and smoked sausage sandwiches among many others, Parkway is a hit for humans and animals.

The Joint

Often regarded as the best barbeque in New Orleans, The Joint serves high-quality barbeque meats and sides, with a nice outdoor patio with dog bowls for the puppy patrons. Plus, for those who can’t finish the large portions, I’m sure your dog wouldn’t mind the leftovers from this stellar BBQ spot.
