Craft and Crew’s Newest Dog-Friendly Restaurant Now Open in Minnetonka

It’s official! Duke’S on 7 is open. The Sidewalk Dog pack went to a special preview night, and trust us, it’s totally drool-worthy. Read below to get the insider deets, then get out to that pawtio for a tail-thumpin’ good time! P.S. You’ll get a FREE drink with our Restaurant Pass, on sale now.

Let’s Talk Pawtio

The Duke’S yearround dog-friendly pawtio is their most mastiff yet! With a 14-seat outdoor bar, trees, greenery, string lights, and an 8-foot fence around the entire space, it feels like a puppin’ oasis for dogs and their peeps. And there’s faux grass covering half the pawtio, so your puppers are comfy and snuggly under the table.

When dooty calls, pup over to the fenced-in relief area, which has an irrigation system to keep it sanitary.

Duke’S Menu

Yes, Duke’S serves their world-famous three-course dog menu currently offered at The Block, The Howe, Pub 819, and Stanley’s (with $1 off during Yappy Hour 3-6 p.m. M-R) As a T-R-E-A-T for the humankind, they offer 30+ beer taps and Maltipoo cocktails (including frozen!). We know where we’ll be day drinking this summer.

About 50% of the human food was lifted from their existing menus, with additions centered on entrees (rotisserie chicken, cauliflower steak, steak n frites) and desserts. We drooled more than a Bulldog lookin’ at the Muttloaf.

What’s In a Name?

Lastly, why Duke’S? Is that a typo? Heck no! Duke’S is an amalgamation of the owners’ names. À la Brangelina (forever in our hearts), owners David Benowitz and Luke Derheim create the portmanteau Duke, and the S represents the third owner, Steve Benowtiz.
