Psycho Suzi’s Motor Lounge located off of SE Marshall St in Minneapolis boasts a large pet friendly patio, attentive staff, and a tropical themed menu. Decorated in Hawaiian Luau theme, Psycho Suzi’s offers drinks such as The Cannibal and Leilani’s Fire Bowl.

Try one of their brunch specials like the Maverick loaded with hash browns, eggs, ham, green peppers, cheddar cheese and hollandaise sauce for an excellent start to the day.


Located off Hennepin Ave in Minneapolis, Brasa offers seating to four-legged companions on the patio. The servers accommodate furry friends as well, and will bring fresh water for the pooch to enjoy. Their menu consists of simple yet flavorful dishes such as a Pulled Chicken Plate covered in cream and pepper gravy as well as Pork with Over Easy Egg that is served with yellow rice, jalapeno spinach, crispy onions, and a house-made red sauce. The delicious food options, excellent service, and doggy company all make you feel at home, especially when dessert could be delicious Butterscotch Pudding or an astounding Brasa Chocolate Bar.

Urban Eatery

The patio seating at Urban Eatery off of W Lake St in Minneapolis welcomes all guests, both the furry variety and humans. The Urban Eatery takes a healthy turn offering items such as Grilled Shrimp Tacos, Thai Steak Salad, and a Lamb Burger. Try the Crispy Brussel Sprouts or the Smoked Chicken Nachos for some gluten free options. They even partner with local farms to ensure all of their food is fresh and local. With such creative yet homey cuisine and their affinity for barking personalities, it is no wonder that they won the Diner’s Choice Award in 2016.

Galaxy Drive-In

Bringing the puppies along at the Galaxy Drive-In can be rewarding as they offer free cones for barking friends. Just a quick drive on Quebec Ave S in Minneapolis brings you to a menu that is out of this world. With food like an Asteroid Cheese Curd Burger topped with cheese curds, lettuce, and raw onion or a Veggie Equinox Burger, a garden burger loaded with veggies and their special cosmic sauce, those woofs are sure to turn to howls of delight! They even offer s’mores kits for their fire-pits as well as Doggie Bones. The most expensive item on their menu is only $12, so there’s no reason not to stop in and enjoy some delicious treats with four-legged friends.

Butcher and the Boar

While seating for furry clients at the Butcher and the Boar is limited to tables in the Biergarten, the menu more than makes up for the breezes; another restaurant located on Hennepin Ave in Minneapolis, Butcher, and the Boar boasts a menu full of colorful twists on American classics. This is one of my favorite dog friendly Minneapolis restaurants.

Serving everything from Wild Boar Hot Links to Pan Seared Duck Breast cured with espresso, Butcher and the Boar puts creativity into every meal. They even serve a 21 Day Dry Aged NY Strip. With so many quirky options for dining, it’s no wonder their menu is a bit pricey, but bringing the fur baby along is priceless.
