Dog Friendly in Surfside

By: Surfside Aug 26, 2019
Have you ever wanted to let your pup tag along for a lunch date? What about bringing your dog along for a weekend getaway? You can! Surfside is a great place to explore with friends, family and even pets! From hotels to restaurants, Surfside has an array of dog-friendly places, so that you can be sure that having your dog tag along is totally ok. 

Three Pooch-Friendly Restaurants 

While most restaurants welcome dogs at outdoor tables, there are three pet-friendly restaurants in Surfside that welcome your pup with open arms. 

Cafe Ragazzi 

This neighborhood spot welcomes everyone, including your furry companion.  Cafe Ragazzi is a classic Italian American experience with a variety of Italian staples and heaps of delicious pasta.  With an extensive international wine selection and complimentary water offered for your pooch, you can be sure that neither you or your pup will leave thirsty.

Greek Place 

This dog-friendly Surfside restaurant serves healthy, Mediterranean cuisine. Order platters of Mediterranean mezze, including house-made hummus served with pita bread wedges.  Settle down for a casual meal knowing that your dog can hang out while you dine. The shaded patio has about six tables, so it’s a little cooler than a sidewalk cafe and comfortable for everyone, including your 4-legged dinner partners.

Flannigan’s Seafood Bar & Grill 

Flanigan's Seafood Bar & Grill is a casual bar and eatery that serves up a variety of tasty Americana classics, from burgers to nachos. Located on a prime strip of Harding Avenue, the restaurant features a spacious outdoor patio with six tables where Fido is welcome to join you while you cheer on your favorite sports team or enjoy a cold beer.

Coffee with Your Pet 

Did you know that Starbucks allows dogs to hang out in the patio seating areas? Furry friends aren’t officially allowed inside – service animals excluded – but Surfside’s location has a nicely shaded patio so you and your pup can sip on your drinks outside and enjoy the fresh air. And yes, we said you and your pup. When you’re ordering your latte, don’t forget to order a Starbucks Puppuccino for your friend. On the ‘secret menu’, it’s an espresso-shot-sized paper cup full of whipped cream, just for dogs. Starbucks offers these for free, at most Starbuck locations.
