Doghouse Drinkery Dog Park: An Austin Dog-Friendly Restaurant
The Doghouse Drinkery is the ultimate hangout for both humans and canines. The bar offers a variety of beers and wines as well as your favorite games, such as darts. While you're enjoying your libations, Fido can lounge at your feet or meet new friends.
Doghouse also has three off-leash areas for your pooch to make friends and romp and play. One of these areas is for small breeds only. The off-leash areas are members-only areas. Yearly passes are $75 or a daily pass is available for $5/day.
Are you looking for a place to meet with a group of dog lovers? You can reserve one of the off-leash areas any day of the week. What is better than getting together with friends and enjoying food and drinks while your four-legged friends have a tail-wagging good time?
If you're looking for a place to party with a friend (canine or human or both), then look no further than Moontower Saloon. With over 11 acres to explore, there is something for everyone.
There are three professional sand volleyball courts. You can join a league or sit at the mini-bar and watch a game.
The Moontower offers live music on an outdoor stage from Thursday through Sunday nights. There is never a cover charge.
Other attractions you'll find here include a crawfish boil, Jenga tournaments, and family fun time on Sunday afternoons. And you can always bring your faithful canine friend to relax and party with you and your friends.
At Yard Bar, you will find an awesome mixture of delicious food, a large selection of craft beers, and an off-leash dog park. They make the best hush puppies anywhere in Austin. They also offer wine on tap or by the bottle, cocktails, and frozen drinks. For the non-alcohol drinkers, you can enjoy a mocktail with the same ingredients without the liquor.
The dog park is a great place to bring Fido with you while you enjoy a cool drink, good food, and new and old friends. There are a few rules for the dog park so make sure you check them out before visiting.
They offer a range of passes from a one day pass to an annual membership. Pick the one that's right for you.
If you're looking for the most authentic Neopolitan-style pizza in Texas, you'll want to try Cane Rosso. The owner, Jay Jerrier, trained with Master Pizzaiolos at the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN) to perfect the craft.
He formed the Cane Rosso Rescue in 2014 to help abandoned dogs find loving homes. They host "Pups on the Patio" events during the spring and fall. Area rescues can bring adoptable dogs to these events. You can enjoy a night of great pizza and adopt a new friend or give a donation.
Dogs Have the Final Say

The Austin dog-friendly restaurants listed above understand the bond between dogs and their owners. Being able to enjoy a day of good food, drinks, and some puppy antics is the best way to relax and unwind.
Come hungry and explore some of the best food in Austin. Big or small, your pooch can stretch out, romp in the dog parks, or chill by your side in the shade. You'll feel better knowing Fido is by your side rather than alone at home getting into trouble.
