Dog Friendly Dining

Welcome to Savannah, America's Most Beautiful City










Dining with Your Doggie in Savannah








Most of the restaurants in Savannah that have outdoor sections will allow your dog to join you, assuming that he or she is a good canine citizen. (No jumping up on a neighboring table to snag a steak, please!). However, few if any will take reservations for these outdoor tables, so it helps to get there early.

Following is a selection of dog-friendly eateries with a broad range of prices and type of food.

Kayak Kafe
1 E. Broughton St.
Closed Sundays

Kayak is a locally-owned casual café located in the heart of Savannah's Historic District. We have a friendly staff and a great location and we are a great choice for lunch or dinner whether you are just strolling around the downtown scene shopping, meeting clients, or you just want to have some great food while you "people watch" from our outdoor tables. Kayak Kafé has a casual, open dining room that bustles with locals during the day, then transforms into a great place to grab a bite at night. Our food is eclectic and fresh and we are consistently rated the best place in town for fresh salads and seafood. We make the best tacos in town, with a variety of choices from a local favorite, our Famous Roasted Tilapia Tacos, to our best-selling Lime-Chicken Tacos with Georgia Corn Salsa. We only serve local shrimp and buy organic, natural foods whenever we can.

The Olde Pink House Bar

Some the best BBQ around for you and your pup to enjoy.

Tortuga's Island Grille
2815 River Drive
Thunderbolt, GA 31404
Open for Breakfast and lunch til 3pm
Delightful treats for both you and your pup here. In quiet Thunderbolt, it's a great place to walk your dog along the riverfront. Your pup will enjoy a fresh bowl of water, and the food is fantastic. We're thrilled to see another dog friendly place emerge in Savannah!

Olympia Café
5 East River St.
Terrific Greek Food! There are only a couple of outdoor tables, so it’s a good idea to get there either early or late. But while you’re waiting, you can take Pooch for a leisurely stroll along the river, watching the freighters and tug boats and certainly people-watching.

Belford’s Savannah
313 W. Julian St.
Award winning fine dining! Plenty of tables. Right off City Market, so ideal for a stroll around the area before and after your repast.

Cafe 37
205 E. 37th St.
Cafe 37 is open for lunch Mon. - Sat. from 11am-3pm and Sun. 10am-3pm. Open for dinner on Thurs. - Sat. from 6-9pm. From Escargot to Southern Eggs Benedict, you and your pooch can dine in their beautiful garden!

Cafe at City Market
224 W. St. Julian St.
Casual food smack in the heart of City Market. There’s often music playing in the square, and an endless stream of tourists and locals alike.

Tapas by Anna
314 W. St. Julian St.
Also in the heart of City Market, this charming place offers a huge variety of Tapas, the tiny tastes traditionally served in bars in Spain. The dishes aren’t so tiny here, and they’re not terribly Spanish, either, but they are delicious, ranging from escargot to ravioli, from garlic bread to small salads. Generally, two or three dishes will make a meal. I usually get an extra order of something just for my own beloved canine

Vinnie Van Go Go’s
317 W. Bryan St.
Right at the side of City Market, this is the best pizza in Savannah! Plus they have great salads. Tables are close together and the place is generally crowded, but it’s worth waiting for and there are plenty of benches to sit on in City Market, and ample galleries and shops to browse.

Wild Wing
City Market
Also in the heart of City Market, this huge menu offers more varieties of chicken wings than you’d think possible, plus pretty much anything you might want to eat, from burgers or wraps to soups, salads and appetizers. And music, music, music.

Clary’s Café
404 Abercorn St.
Breakfast and lunch in the café made famous by Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. A popular spot with local canines, too.

Firefly Café
321 Habersham St.
Another popular spot with local canines and their owners.

Exceptional sandwiches! Lots of lovely art work by local artists.

North Beach Grill
3 Medin Dr.
Eclectic and delicious food near Tybee Island’s famous lighthouse.

The Crab Shack
Estill Hammock Rd. (Chimney Creek)
Tybee Island
Superb seafood, plus some landlubbers specials. Beautiful setting on the creek. Dogs are allowed outside on the deck and must get along with the cats that hang out around there!
