Date night’s here and you’re a bit tired of your significant pupper stealing bites of your entree. While he may think that all food is dog food, maybe try a spot that caters to his pawlate? Check out one of these Chicago restaurants with dog menus that’ll have him giving four paws up!
Park & Field
This isn’t the dog park, but Park & Field is a close second in terms of how excited your dog’s gonna be. With a huge, dog-friendly patio that features fire pits, bocce ball, and more, we think you’ll both want to stay a while. Treat your dog to a Perfect Pup Cup with yogurt, bananas and peanut butter–tbh, it sounds perfect for hoomans too.
A Pooch-ini… shaken, not stirred–aka your dog’s newest favorite order. While not a local Chicago restaurant, Shake Shack has plenty of locations across the city. Pupper thinks trying them all to pick a favorite will be a great way to bond. While that may be a scam, we can’t blame a good boy for trying.
The Rambler heard that you like dog-friendly patios so they gave you TWO. With a breezy sidewalk patio and an outdoor beer garden with a fire pit, your dog just wants to sit in whatever spot gets the most foot traffic so he can get the most pets. Their dog menu features plenty of treats, and the human menu isn’t skimping on treats for you either.
PB&J: Pizza Beer & Jukebox
According to Fido, PB&J stands for pup, barks, and jowls. This uber dog-friendly spot even has a Doggy Date Night every Wednesday with half-priced dog menu items, fries, and beers. If we’re listening to Fido, half off just means you can get twice as many snackies and his math is not wrong.
The Perch has it all, with a full-service restaurant, bar, and brewery onsite. Since they think of everything, you know they have a dog menu. While your doggo may not be 21 in dog years yet, we promise she won’t get carded when ordering a Hefe-Woof-Zen.
For our friends in the suburbs, both the Vernon Hills and Naperville locations of Lazy Dog offer a dog menu filled with well-balanced meals for your pupper. Lazy or not, all are welcome! They even have their own fancy pupper Happy Meal, Pepper’s Play Pack, which includes a box of treats and toys curated for max happiness.
