Fret no more! You don’t have to leave Fido at home when looking to chow down out on the town. We’ve put together seven drool-worthy restaurants with dog menus in the Twin Cities–bc there’s nothing better than some whining and dining.
1. Duke’S on 7, Minnetonka (heated patio!)
Duke’S on 7’s canine cuisine is top-notch. Between catching some fresh air on their giant, dog-friendly pawtio and the wide range of entrée choices for all palates, Duke’S is a must! For all you football fans, they’ve got deals for both Vikes games and Saturday college game days. Bonus: All pups are treated with a peanut butter Nilla Woofer!
2. Stanley’s, Minneapolis (heated patio!)
You can treat both yourself and your furry BFF at Stanley’s. This joint offers Craft & Crew’s famous three-course menu for doggos, just like Duke’S, The Howe, The Block, and Pub 819. Stanley’s has plenty of options for both two-legged and four-legged customers. Plus it’s only fitting that Dogecoin is an accepted currency for all dog menu items.
3. St. Paul Tap, St. Paul
We highly recommend scheduling your next yappy hour at St. Paul Tap. Have you seen their adorable pooch patio? The people burgers are completely customizable (and heckin’ delicious), plus the pup can grab a burger patty too! If the pupper needs a bit of a break from you, check out the pub’s gaming consoles, pinball, and old-school bar games inside.
4. Pub 819, Hopkins (heated patio!)
No doubt that your floof is going to want to get her paws on the offerings at Pub 819. They’ve even got a yappy hour daily deal from 3-6 p.m. Looking for a new brunch spot? Get your paws on one of their brunch bloodies, cocktails, mocktails, or hard lattes. This spot by Craft and Crew is an absolute tail-wagger!
5. The Howe, Minneapolis (heated patio!)
In a nutshell, The Howe understood the assignment when it comes to tasty doggy menus. From Woof Woof Bowls to the Muttloaf, they’ve got the goods for good pups. Patio season doesn’t have to end, bc they have a year-round, heated dog-friendly patio.
6. The Block, St. Louis Park (heated patio!)
Between the boozy shakes (heck to the yes), the mouth-watering bar food, and the famous broasted chicken, The Block might just be your next happy hour spot. To make Mondays a wee bit better, The Block offers trivia nights and $5 off people burgers. Snow in the forecast? Snow problem in their enclosed patio.
7. Urban Olive and Vine, Hudson WI
Last but certainly not least is Urban Olive and Vine, which is just a short jaunt from the cities. They consider every open hour yappy hour, and offer meals for dogs of all sizes (The zoodles & meatballs sounds delish!). We recommend treating yourself to a glass of wine from Chateau La Paws; proceeds made by the winemaker and Urban Olive go toward saving dogs. Fair warning: Your pup’ll beg to go back.
Now that pup is begging to go to all of these restos, you’re gonna want our Dog-Friendly Restaurant Pass for a FREE wine, beer, or NA bevvy at each spot. Just $10, and it supports local pet nonprofits.
Bonus: Dessert, bc balanced meals are important.
There are a few locales in the Twin Cities that offer sweet treats for the fluffer. In addition to the spots above that offer dessert, you can trek on over to one of the many local places with pup ice cream treats. We love Nellie’s Ice Cream for their customizable ice cream sandwiches and Frosty Paws or Milkjam Creamery’s ever-changing, ever-amazing flavors for the people and take-home peanut butter ice cream bones for our best friends.
In other words, it’s time to bring Fido out and about. Which Twin Cities restaurant with a dog menu is your pup going to try first?
