Let’s face it, if you’re a dog owner, most of the decisions you make about where to go to eat or have drinks are contingent upon whether the venue allows your pet to join you. If you’re visiting Folly with your pooch there is no need to fret: many great spots around town offer dog-friendly outside spaces.
We’ve highlighted a few to get you started on your quest.
Lost Dog Café- With a name like Lost Dog Café, you’d expect this laid back and cozy joint to cater to man’s best friend and they deliver. The staff even sets out water bowls at each table on their outdoor patio to accommodate Fido. Combine this with quality food at a reasonable price and you’ll understand why it’s a hit with humans and dogs alike.
Chico Feo- Located off the main drag on Ashley Avenue, Chico Feo boasts one of the most eclectic menus on Folly, and as an outdoor seating-only establishment, your dog can join you on your culinary odyssey. Their menu is seasonal and constantly updated, but creative taco combinations and Vietnamese specialties are common fixtures.
Rita’s Seaside Grille- Rita’s has a spacious outdoor dog-friendly patio to bring your pooch and a personable staff that will greet them with a bowl of water. While you’re there, do yourself a favor and sample their delectable blackened tuna nachos drizzled with watermelon salsa. And maybe share a bit with your canine companion if you’re feeling generous.
Loggerhead’s Beach Grill- Dogs are welcome on their expansive outdoor deck, which often features live music. Don’t be surprised if one of their friendly, pet-loving servers brings a treat and a bowl of water to help relax your pup and ease your stress so you can focus on having a good time.
Surf Bar– Folly’s favorite dive bar hangout is also an excellent spot to bring your pooch to hang out with you on the back patio. Good food, cold drinks, friendly service, a chill beach vibe and live music—what else do you need in life?
Taco Boy- Situated along the main strip of Center Street just blocks from the beach, Taco Boy offers a dog-friendly outdoor patio. Drop by for tasty tacos and some refreshing margaritas or sangrias with your canine in tow.
