10 Dog-Friendly Restaurants to Enjoy in Nashville

It’s National Puppy Day, a holiday that is definitely worth celebrating. Fortunately, thanks to the ample supply of dog-friendly restaurants in Nashville, we can all enjoy a nice meal, inside or outside, with our beloved pets. We found 10 places where dogs are welcomed guests.

1. Tennessee Brew Works

Tennessee Brew Works has a dog-friendly patio, which is covered, making it the perfect spot to spend a few hours, regardless of the weather. They also happen to have plenty of craft beer options, and great menu items, like the Wagyu beef hot dog.

2. Hops & Crafts

Hops & Crafts’ patio is perfect for pups of all sizes! They boast 36 beers on tap and a unique bar-food menu that includes their homemade pimento cheese. Bonus: free parking is available in the Turnip Truck parking lot.

3. Two Ten Jack

East Nashville’s Two Ten Jack is a combination of bar food and Japanese cuisine, with plenty of hand-crafted cocktails and unique items that can only be found here, like the their own spin on fried chicken, and ice cream dumplings for dessert. Dogs are welcome!

4. Hattie B’s Hot Chicken

While we wouldn’t recommend feeding your dog Hattie B’s Hot Chicken, the patio at Hattie B’s Midtown location is very pet-friendly. Hattie B’s hot chicken is ranked among the best in the world, so consider getting your order to-go to avoid the long lines, and then grabbing a table.

5. 12 South Taproom and Grill

12 South Taproom and Grill loves welcoming furry friends onto their patio. They also have a tempting happy hour menu, which rotates by the day, and includes Margarita Monday and $10 off a bottle of wine on Thursdays.

6. Fat Bottom Brewing

Fat Bottom Brewing’s patio is dog-friendly, but there’s also the Hop Yard, an outdoor beer garden, next to the brewery, with ample space for Fido to run around. Their kitchen menu changes, as do their choices of seasonal beer, but what doesn’t change is their commitment to great food and drinks.

7. Yazoo Taproom

Dogs love the patio at Yazoo Taproom, located just outside of the city limits of Nashville, in Madison. And dog owners love the diverse beer list. A small selection of food items is also available, including an all-beef hot dog and chicken tenders.

8. Music City Bar and Grill

Music City Bar and Grill has an outdoor dining area that is welcoming to dogs, as well as live music! Located near Opryland Hotel, their menu includes bar-style food, like fried pickles and a Philly cheesesteak sandwich.

9. Jack Brown’s Beer and Burger Joint

There are only six tables in the outdoor seating area of Jack Brown’s Beer and Burger Joint, but even if you have to wait, it’s definitely worth it. Their burger selection includes a Cobra Kai burger, made with cream cheese, pickled jalapeños and jalapeño jelly. or the Elvis burger, with peanut butter, mayo, bacon and cheese.

10. Jackalope

The Wedgewood-Houston location of Jackalope has an outdoor dining area that is welcoming to dogs, and a large beer menu that is appealing to humans! While their food menu isn’t as diverse, they do offer several items to enjoy as well.
