The Dog Days of Summer



Want to bring your pooch along for a patio dining experience? We’ve gathered a list of Saugatuck/Douglas dining and drinking establishments where you can roll up with your pup.


When grabbing a bite, restaurants like Pumpernickels, GROW Café + Bistro, Farmhouse Deli & Pantry, Back Alley Pizza Joint, and Blue Star Cafe & Ice Cream Treats have small outdoor areas that welcome furry friends. Wally’s Bar & Grill and Wicks Park Bar & Grille feature larger outdoor patios with pet-friendly tables for leashed dogs. Treat Fido to a relaxing waterfront view while you enjoy your meal at one of the outdoor tables at Coral Gables or Scooters Café & Pizzeria. At Borrowed Time, you and your pooch can take a seat on the lawn or relax on their dog-friendly porch.


For an extra special treat, be sure to bring your canine companion to Uncommon Coffee Roasters Café and Bakery, where they serve up Doggie Casseroles made with brown rice, organic chicken, and roasted veggies.


And don’t miss out on our incredible wineries, craft breweries, and cideries. When it’s time to take a sip, Fenn Valley Vineyards, Virtue Cider, Guardian Brewing Company, and The Mitten Brewing Company all welcome dogs in their outdoor seating areas.


For the best experience at these establishments, be sure to feed Fido before you go, bring your own bowl for water, and keep your furry family member on-leash at all times.
