Where to Eat & Drink

UPDATED FOR 2017

Find the dog friendly Little Rock and central Arkansas area restaurant patios that welcome your pup. Green means go, red means no!

Please note that restaurant policies are subject to change at any time. If you go to one of the restaurants listed as dog friendly and find that it no longer allows dogs on their patio (or if you find a place that permits pups and we’ve missed it), please let us know so we can change their status.

DOGS PERMITTED 🙂

We encourage you to call first to confirm the restaurant hasn’t changed its policy.

SORRY, NO DOGS ALLOWED ON THESE PATIOS 🙁
Please be awesome and respect the decisions of these restaurants. Do not take your pups.

  • Big Orange (Midtown)
  • Big Orange (West)
  • BRAVO! Cucina Italiana
  • Buffalo Grill
  • Izzy’s
  • Loca Luna (While management at Loca Luna says dogs are welcome, be advised that the patio is very tight. Small, chill dogs would probably be okay, but with the potential risk to staff and other customers, we’d make like Nancy Reagan and just say no. As always, use your best judgment.)
  • Local Lime
  • Maddie’s Place
  • Pizza Café

    1. Sticky Fingerz is on the list, but I’ll call Dizzy’s to verify their status. They weren’t dog friendly in the past, so thanks for the heads up!

  1. Thank you for creating this list! It has been my daily, go-to list for meals since we’ve moved to downtown. We love having the option of being able to stop in at a restaurant while we are on our evening walks around the neighborhood with the pup!

  2. Bravo! At the Promenade will NOT allow dogs on the patio. I came with my pup cause I didn’t want to leave him at home. I request to sit on the patio and was told no. It was a company policy. They have no lost a long time customer over this. I will not be back by my choice.

  3. US Pizza just posted on their Facebook that dogs will no longer be allowed at any of their locations, because it is a “health department violation.” will this affect other restaurants that allow dogs? 🙁

    1. Jennifer, thanks so much for letting us know this important, and very disappointing, news. We are now working to have this regulation changed. Check out our latest blog post, as well as our Facebook page for updates. You rock for bringing this to our attention.

  4. We have taken our dogs to the McAllister’s off McCain Blvd in NLR a few times – they allow well behaved dogs on and beside their outside patio. We just tie them up to the fence while we eat, and they lay under our table. 🙂

  5. I have taken my furry baby to Bravo in the Promenade, and they were super sweet to him. They had no problem with letting us dine on the patio. On a side note; there are several dog-friendly stores in the Promenade.

  6. You folks need to check out a dog friendly liquor store drive-up window on Camp Robinson Road in North Little Rock at Neighborhood Wine & Spirits. One of their employee’s pups will probably greet you when you pull up and they’ll always have a treat for your canine companion. The new NLR Levy Spur Trail runs right behind the store lot, so you can ride your bike or stroll along the trail if you like and give your pup some exercise, too.

HOLLA!
