50 Dog Friendly Places in Pensacola

Dog House Downtown

Where are the best places to bring your dogs for a day date? We are glad you asked! The local guide to the top 50 dog-friendly places to eat and drink is here!


It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to prove that humans love their dogs more than other humans. If you are blessed with a four-legged friend, you, like many others, would choose to take them anywhere and everywhere with you if you could.

Some go to great lengths to certify their furry friends to be service pets. Some would say that if a dog ran for president they would be the first in line to vote. Others spend their life savings on the best groomers, dog walkers, and first-class seating on the flight to make it known that their dogs are the main priority.

If it’s not clear. Dogs are life.

Life would be a lot easier if we had a compiled list of all the local spots that our furry friends were allowed to tag along with us. Pensacola and surrounding areas have seen an increase in local dog parks, dog beaches, and walkable markets that make day dates with the dogs easy to find. Still, “the humans” have needs too.

Below, we’ve put together a list of 50 favorite spots around town where your best furry friend is welcome too! Please note that most on the list below are dog friendly ONLY on their outdoor patios. As always, do your research to find out more about bringing them to places indoors.

Making sure your dog is sociable, friendly, and behaves in public is key to keeping this list of places open for our furry friends. People and pet friendly. One of the many reasons why we love Pensacola.

Happy tails!
