Fort Worth is beautiful, with lots of parks, green spaces, and gardens, making it the perfect place to enjoy some fresh air with your dog. Once you have investigated some of the spectacular scenery, you can refuel in one of the many dog-friendly restaurants in the area.

Landmark Bar and Kitchen

If you want somewhere that doesn't just allow dogs but positively welcomes them, then Landmark Bar and Kitchen goes above and beyond to make its canine visitors feel at home. Not only do they have an array of tasty treats and water bowls for their canine guests, but they also have a large, dog-friendly patio that is always popular with pups. If you go during their weekly 'yappy hour,' then your dog will get a chance to socialize while you can relax and enjoy a safe and friendly environment for your pups. 

It's not just dogs that can enjoy special treatment. Landmark also has a signature range of fishbowl cocktails, 29-inch beers, and an extensive menu featuring classic choices alongside house specialties such as the triple pepperoni pizza, cheese-laden potato bombs, and cheesecake egg rolls. 

Woodshed Smokehouse

If you love the great outdoors and want to continue your adventure while you eat, the laid-back atmosphere of the Woodshed Smokehouse is the ideal place to stop. They have a beautiful patio that offers spectacular views over the Trinity River, making it popular with runners and bikers who need a break after hitting the local trails. But the real treat is the surprisingly extensive menu for dogs to choose from. This includes rawhide bones dipped in barbecue fat, so your dog can enjoy the delicious wood-fired flavors that make the Woodshed Smokehouse so popular with their human patrons.   


As a local bar that offers a friendly welcome, Mash'd has an important place at the heart of its local community. As well as offering treats and water for canine guests, your dog can relax in the large shaded area on the patio, so it's ideal for sunny days when you want somewhere for your dog to cool off. 

It also offers a wide range of original cocktails featuring ingredients such as jalapeno agave, walnut bitters, and their own blend of moonshine. Their menu features traditional favorites such as chicken and biscuits and Kobe beef cheeseburgers, but there are also plenty of specialty dishes such as their caramel moonshine French toast sandwich and power bowls featuring kale, quinoa, and an array of fresh vegetables.

Chadra Mezza Grill

The Lebanese owners have combined traditional food with a touch of Mediterranean flavor to create a tempting mezza — a selection of salads, meats, and other dishes that are designed to be shared. If you want to share a delicious dining experience with your furry friend, then the staff at the Chadra Mezza Grill will welcome them with open arms, dog treats, and bowls of water for those who need refreshing. They also host regular events such as their 'Pooches on the Patio' event where they served dog-inspired cocktails, allowed local dogs to socialize with one another, and raised funds for a local animal shelter. 

Cane Rosso

It may come as no surprise to learn that an establishment whose name translates as 'Red Dog' is as welcoming to four-legged friends as they are to fans of their authentic Neapolitan-style wood-fired pizza, made fresh every day with flour imported from Italy. They also serve a range of fresh pasta and a selection of sides and snacks designed for sharing. 

Their dog-friendly credentials extend way beyond their willingness to provide treats and water on demand: The owner has opened a dog rescue center that cares for abandoned and homeless dogs, helping them to find their forever homes. The large shady patio, extensive menu, and commitment to finding homes for dogs in need make Cane Rosso the perfect spot for the dog lovers of Fort Worth.

Shaw's Patio Bar and Grill

Taking your dog out for a walk can really build up an appetite, and if you are in the mood for a classic dish, then Shaw's Patio Bar and Grill is the perfect place to relax with your dog. Their menu features a wide range of traditional treats from burgers and chicken wings to lasagna and fettuccini Alfredo. Their selection of cheesecakes includes maple bacon, snickerdoodle, and Oreo graham cracker as the perfect way to round off a delicious meal.

Accompanied by their perfectly mixed cocktails and selection of bloody marys, you and your dog can have a relaxing lunch or dinner while enjoying the view from their shady, dog-friendly patio.

Winslow's Wine Cafe

Wine lovers who want to share their love of the finer things in life with their furry friends can do so at Winslow's Wine Cafe. This high-end establishment is named after the owner's dog, so it comes as no surprise to learn that the proprietors believe in combining drinking and dogs in style. Their dinner menu features delicacies such as ahi tuna tartar, lobster bisque, and freshly made crab cakes so that you can enjoy fine dining with your best friend by your side. If you are out and about and want to treat yourself to brunch with a difference, then you and your dog can stop by and enjoy favorites such as chicken and waffles or a wood-fired pizza.

Their wine list features an ever-changing choice of 33 specially selected wines that have all been blind taste tested by the owners to ensure that they meet their own exacting standards as well as those of their clientele. They also host special events for canine companions such as costume parties for dogs and fundraisers for local animal charities held on their spacious patio.


If you and your furry friend are planning a trip to Fort Worth, you are now armed with some great ideas of where you can both enjoy a delicious meal.
