Fall weather means that there’s no better place to be than on any of Little Rock’s many outdoor patios enjoying a meal or a drink – especially when you’re joined by a four-legged friend. If that’s your jam, Little Rock has plenty to choose from. Here are a few of our favorites.
The Fold’s indoor/outdoor patio combination means that it can be enjoyed by all members of the family all year long. Though if you have a bigger dog, watch out – those table are conveniently just at mouth-height for some taller dogs.
Stone’s Throw Brewing, MacArthur Park
Stone’s Throw is a mainstay of Little Rock’s craft beer scene, and their 9th street patio is the perfect spot to unwind with your pooch in tow.
Fassler Hall’s outdoor beer garden is a drinker’s (and a dog’s) oasis as a place to kick back with any of the beer hall’s numerous brews and a signature brat.
The Rail Yard
The Rail Yard functions like Little Rock’s back yard with its combination of delicious in-house barbecue, eclectic food trucks and abundant patio games. It’s become a local favorite with humans and dogs a like.
This Venezuelan restaurant in the heart of the tree-shaded Hillcrest neighborhood is a local favorite. Their multi-leveled deck is a great place to people or pup-watch in one of Little Rock’s most eclectic areas.
Zaza Fine Salad & Pizza Co.
Another Midtown favorite, Zaza’s wood-fired pizzas and custom salads taste even better when eaten on their small patio with a furry friend in tow.
42 Bar and Table
Awesome views of the lighted Clinton Presidential Park pedestrian bridge and Arkansas River, a menu with a delicious blend of local favorites and internationally inspired cuisine… 42 Bar and Table is a great downtown destination with a patio fit for a king… or a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
Boulevard Bread Co.
This locally owned gourmet deli serves great lunchtime sandwiches and salads with sidewalk seating in the South Main area, while their trendy Heights location has a cozy patio open for lunch and a more extensive dinner menu. Their second location in The Heights neighborhood is dog-friendly as well.
Another street-side patio in the South on Main neighborhood, Raduno’s space is small but welcoming, with plenty of room for all of your friends on two or four legs.
No list of dog-friendly restaurants would be complete without Little Rock’s most human-friendly hangout for dogs. Bark Bar, with its ample televisions, outdoor space, local craft beer (for humans) and canine goodies is a puppy paradise where even humans are welcome.
