Summer is here, and it’s patio season! After doing a hike with the dogs I love to grab a burger or beer and soak up the sun on the patio. Often times its too hot to leave your bestie in the car panting, so what could be better than being able to take him or her on the patio with you in the shade to cool off? A dog’s gotta eat and drink too! Check out these city-approved Dog Friendly Restaurant Patios in Salt Lake City – bone appétit!
Below are some of my favorites – to see all, view the map at the bottom of this post.
Also just a heads up the SLC Health Department requires your dog to have a current rabies tag and license on their collar. Humans MUST have their ID present as well. The 2023 version will be updated soon!
Dog Friendly Restaurant Patios
Salt Lake City
With pizza options like Thai Chicken, BBQ, California Club, and Carne Asada there’s a flavor for everyone. For the plain janes out there, they offer the traditional pepperoni and cheese as well. CPK also has gluten-free pizzas, power bowls, pasta, soups/salads, and mini plates. Their patio in Murray is on the small side with little shade, but it is an option to dine with your dogs.
All four Taqueria 27 locations and patios in the SLC valley are dog friendly. They offer a line up of gourmet tacos – duck, citrus pork, beef, and grilled veggie. Everything here is a la carte so if you expect rice and beans make sure you order them on the side. The main reason people come here? Their tequila, of course! Taqueria 27 is proud to offer a large and varied selection of 100% Agave Tequilas and Tequila-based cocktails, as well as a fine selection of beer and wine.
I’ll be honest, I had never heard of Fisher Brewing until a friend brought along a beer for a hike. We got to talking about the place and my friend mentioned a nice patio. Lo and behold we found out that their patio was dog friendly! Located in the Granary District of SLC, they serve up delicious ales and lagers and feature a rotating cast of local food trucks. Alright, fine, twist my arm, I’ll go! Maybe I’ll even buy a little snack for my dog. Now there’s an idea – a dog food truck with a variety of bones and treats!
Log Haven is located just a few miles up Millcreek Canyon, making it the perfect spot to eat after hiking with your dogs. Wear them out on the Desolation Overlook Trail, Rattlesnake Gulch, or Mt. Aire then come here for a fancy feast. They have a beautiful, well shaded patio, and water bowls are provided. Log Haven has amazing food, such as their Grilled Elk Strip loin, Filet Mignon, and Pan Roasted Wild Salmon. My favorite part about Log Haven? They offer The Dog Days of Summer, where you and your well-behaved furry companion can dine together on the patio. From May to October you can order from the seasonal menu. Read about my experience here!
Sandwiches are the name of the game here. The Caputo. The Soprano! Don’t forget The Old School. Could you tell I was saying these names with an Italian accent? Caputo’s also has a large selection of soups, salads, and deserts. Their patio is a pretty good size, and water bowls are often provided. There’s not much shade, though so plan to eat here after an evening hike with your pup. Their small market has unique grocery items for the chocolate lover, the coffee drinker, and assorted gifts and apparel.
The 1920’s saw the emergence of finger foods – with this in mind, the food here are small plates designed to be shared. Prohibition style! Prohibition also makes refined cocktails for the adult crowd, but what really brings people in is Sunday Brunch! Prices for the small plates and brunch range from $7-13, but don’t forget the $4 Bloody Mary’s & Mimosas! The patio here is quite small, so arrive early to grab a seat outside so you dog gets first pick! Just make sure he/she doesn’t try to steal your Wagyu Beef Sliders or French Toast!
The Garage Grill is Draper, Utah’s only brewery! It is locally owned featuring a full menu of entrees, salads, sandwiches, pizza, and sushi – literally something for everyone. The full bar offers twenty of their own Salt Flat Beers on tap. Grab your dog for a hike, then grab a beer! See their full collection of classic and race cars as well.
Located near 15th and 15th in SLC, Emigration Cafe is right across from the Emigration Harmon’s Market, and offers wood-fired pizzas, Italian dishes to die for, and house pastas only your Grandma can make. With plenty of drinks to choose from deserts such as dark chocolate pot de creme, you can’t go wrong here. Head here on a hot day so your dog gets to hang out in the shade on this patio.
Park Cafe is my absolute favorite breakfast place in SLC. The homemade biscuits and gravy and French toast melt in your mouth, and the bacon is always crispy. Check their daily specials too – its something different and unique every time I’ve eaten here. The best part is the patio is fully covered, so no worries about your dog being too hot. They even offer water bowls for the pups. After eating take a walk right across the street at Liberty Park!
The Point After is a premier sports bar in Murray, offering viewing of all the sporting events happening. Sandwiches and burgers are king here, as well as beer. Need a sports break? Head here with your dog and catch the games.
Zest is a healthy restaurant featuring a fresh juice cocktail bar, and organic eats. Gluten-free eaters will enjoy their Moroccan chickpea soup and avocado stuffed salad, and their housemade “cheese” biscuits are sooo yummy! Stop by for a “beet it!” juice, and let your pup hang out while you soak in those vitamins.
Honored with being Park City’s first winery 15 years ago, Cognition Winery had to make the best first impression as possible in the area. Their wine has become increasingly popular over the years to the point that they now are able to sell a variety of wines onsite, as well as offer samples. They now offer wine tasting reservations, and as anyone knows, you need a good cheese to go with the wine. The Bistro was introduced and since then Cognition is well on it’s way to becoming a popular spot in Park City. Bring the dogs to the patio, and enjoy sipping on some Sauvignon Blanc!
Deer Valley Grocery Cafe has options for the more casual, on-the-go lunch. They serve everything from breakfast, lunch, to-go items, and deserts. Their patio is of course, dog friendly, and overlooks the pond where people paddle board and fish, and has a great view of the Snow Park Lodge area of Deer Valley.
You’ll be saying “Oh, Mai” as you take each bite of the Oh Mai sushi at Lespri. The sushi here is probably the best in Park City. Cozy and romantic, this atmosphere is best for a date night. Bring your partner and bring your dog – the patio has an outdoor fire pit, couches, and lights to give you the intimate dinner you’re looking for. Lespri is also know for it’s USDA Prime steaks – filet’s to New York Strip & elk loin, there’s an option for every kind of meat lover. During summer months, they offer 2 for 1 entrees and have live music Friday nights.
