With the warmer weather right around the corner, it is almost time to sit on a patio and enjoy the sunshine while enjoying a tasty meal. Here are some restaurants in the Lakeview and Lincoln Park neighborhoods that are dog friendly, so you can bring your pup along for the fun!

Crosby’s Kitchen

3455 N. Southport Ave.

This is a great place for brunch, lunch and dinner with their American home style food such as buttermilk biscuits and fried chicken. Their outdoor patio is always filled with dogs, so be sure to get there early to claim a spot for your pooch!

Uncommon Ground

3800 N. Clark St.

Uncommon Ground has a mostly vegetarian menu and uses season, regional, organic ingredients for their food. They offer a healthy take on familiar dishes and in 2014 became the First Certified Organic Brewery in Illinois.


1925 N. Lincoln Ave.

If you’re looking for a local place for tasty pizza Ranalli’s is the place to go! They have a plethora of pizza options, as well as an extensive beer and wine list. Just a quick walk away from the Lincoln Park Zoo, there are many places for your pup to sniff after a delicious meal.

Murphy’s Bleachers

3655 N. Sheffield

Right across the street from Wrigley Field, Murphy’s Bleachers is a dog friendly-bar. On non-Cubs game days, dogs are even allowed inside the bar! They have delectable bar food and an amazing selection of beers.


3301 N. Clark St.

After finishing your appointment at Blum, walk your dog one block North and sit on the patio to enjoy a bite to eat. If you’re in the mood for American comfort food, this is the place to go. Monday through Thursday they have a happy hour special from 3 pm – 6 pm with ½ price appetizers and flatbreads, and cheap drinks.

If you have any other suggestions of dog-friendly restaurants, please let us know!
