You no longer have to choose between your two greatest loves — your dog and your diet. While the state doesn’t allow dogs inside restaurants, aside from service animals, many restaurants, bars, and cafes have developed reputations for their dog-friendly decks and patios. Now that patios are abundant in Portland, many restaurants and bars have become even more pet friendly, greeting leashed pups with bones and bowls of water. Here are a number of Portland bars, restaurants, and cafes that will happily accommodate your furry companions, because let’s face it, you probably can’t fathom being away from your dog for any longer than the time it takes to down an IPA. Eater Portland also has restaurant and bar patio maps, for those of you looking for general places to dine and drink al fresco.

Note: The latest CDC guidance for vaccinated diners during the COVID-19 outbreak is here; dining out still carries risks for unvaccinated diners and workers.

This St. Johns standby is a neighborhood haunt, thanks to its front-and-back patios, hot-pressed sandwiches, and summery boozy popsicles. It’s also a fantastic spot to bring a dog for a snack and a drink, with an enclosed back space, picnic tables, and other dogs strolling by

Tamale Boy

Eating freshly made tamales with a pint-sized margarita in-hand is an excellent way to bide time with your pooch. Tamale Boy’s roomy outdoor patio on Northeast Dekum is decked with tables, umbrellas, and a fire pit.

Pizza Jerk

This breakout rock ‘n’ roll pizzeria happens to have a sprawling dog-friendly patio with picnic tables and umbrellas, so there’s plenty of space to be had for devouring pizza and boozy slushies alongside your pup. So the kids won’t feel left out, there are also regular, non-alcoholic slushies available.

Tin Shed Garden Cafe

Copy Link

Treat your best friend to dinner. One of the more popular brunch spots in Portland, this cafe is a favorite among dog owners for its little dog dinner of chicken and sweet potatoes, as well as an add-on dog dessert of bananas, peanut butter, and yogurt. There’s a covered patio as well as an adjoining one with umbrellas and tables.

Victoria Bar

Looking for top-notch cocktails? This charming North Portland bar known for naming its mixed drinks after culty Princess Bride references is a great option. It also serves Cajun-adjacent plates, including vegan and gluten-free dishes, and its dog-friendly patio is a beautiful, lush spot to chill on a sunny afternoon. Happy hour runs from 3 to 6 p.m. daily, with discounted food and drink.

The Rambler

Set inside a converted 1920s bungalow, The Rambler is known for its Southwestern fare, like Frito pie and smoked brisket chili, in addition to cocktails such as the Texas Mule. The bar has very dog-friendly front and back patios, plus fire pits and a bocce ball court. The Rambler is known for its killer happy hour that runs all day on Mondays, which makes it an easy spot to relax with the mutt for an afternoon.

Hammer & Stitch Brewing Co.

This Slabtown brewery is not only a primo place for crisp, cold beers, and loaded jojos — Hammer & Stitch’s deck is absolutely dog friendly, with pups often spotted leashed up next to tables. If you snuck your pup a pinch of a burger, something tells me it’d go over swimmingly. The brewery is also open for indoor seating.

Lucky Labrador Beer Hall

Portland’s original dog bar has multiple locations throughout the city — each with dog-friendly patios, ample water bowls, and adorable photo opts for your pup. The brewpub also hosts the annual “Dogtoberfest,” a huge dog-wash event with beer and live music that raises money for the Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital.

Dimo’s Apizza

Portland’s closest approximation of a New-Haven-style apizza, Dimo’s Burnside pizzeria has plenty of dog-friendly outdoor seating, so customers can sit in the sun with a clam pie and sneak their pups a few stray pepperoni. Dimo’s is also a great spot to find other East Coast classics like grinders, as well as specials, collaborative events, and pop-ups.

Revolution Hall

Copy Link

The Washington High School dog park begins right where the patio ends at Marthas; however, while Marthas remains closed, Rev Hall is still serving burgers, salads, cocktails, and plenty of beers on tap on the patio. Customers can take dogs out into the dog park while they wait for food and drinks, where they can find water bowls for a post-fetch cool-down and doggy bags for taking care of business.

A Roadside Attraction

Copy Link

A quirky gathering spot that’s as Portland as they come, A Roadside Attraction has some great little nooks around the patio for you and your pooch to chill out, and there’s even a water bowl station onsite to keep your furry friend hydrated. The plant-filled patio sports a large swing chair, a wood stove for colder nights, and of course, plenty of old-school signs and knick knacks strung about that offer a thrift shop sort of vibe. In addition to a full bar, you can grab a bite to eat here, although the bar is cash only so be sure to bring some dollars.

White Owl Social Club

Copy Link

A sprawling patio with plenty of seating and a fire pit makes White Owl Social Club a favorite among dogs and humans alike — there’s even a special canine entrance to the patio. The bar is known for its friendly heavy metal vibe, strong drinks, and vegan and gluten-free options like the hazelnut beet burger.

Cellar Dog

Copy Link

This emphatically dog-friendly wine bar is fairly new to Portland, but it’s already become a hangout among dog owners throughout the city. Its wine list specifically focuses on wineries that have an activist bent, donating to aid organizations and advocacy groups — for example, the by-the-glass menu may include Proud Pour’s Pinot for Bees; for each bottle sold of that Oregon pinot, Proud Pour funds 35 square feet of new bee habitat on farms across North America. While you sip on wine, dogs can drink out of the wine bar’s water bowls, chew on some of the toys available at the bar, or snack on some of the shop’s various treats made by owner Jenn Lyons.
