Dog-Friendly Food Halls

Posted by Billy Francis

Finding somewhere to eat with your dog during winter can be a struggle. If you don’t live near a restaurant that allows dogs inside or offers igloo dining, it may feel like the only option is to eat with your pup at home. Fortunately, food halls are here to save the day. These warm and welcoming establishments house a variety of food and drink offerings under one roof, which means everybody can enjoy their favorite cuisine around the same table in a community dining area. Check out these pet-friendly food halls that allow dogs inside or on a heated and covered patio.

Are you planning a trip to Wisconsin Dells with your wiener dog? Be sure to swing by Grateful Shed for a variety of eats in a psychedelic food hall with a 1960s theme. Inside, you’ll find a selection of permanent food trucks that serve up everything from ooey-gooey grilled cheese sandwiches and burgers to street tacos and ice cream. While you fill up on your chosen grub, Fido can snack on his complimentary bag of treats and lap up a bowl of water. Pups can beat the chill inside or gather around the fire pit on the pet-friendly patio instead.

Formerly a church, PublicHouse in Springfield is a godsend during the winter months. Grab a warm bowl of chili from Squacho’s, Asian-inspired dishes from Moi Poki Grill or something from the Boat-to-Plate menu at Fisherman’s Market, then head outside to eat with your furry best friend. Four-legged visitors can keep their owners company in the covered tent on the green space with heat lamps to fight off the cold.

La Quinta Inn and Suites by Wyndham Springfield invites dogs and their owners to stay on the first two floors with easy access to the green space outside.

Tin Can Alley is a “refuge from the run-of-the-mill.” This popular pet-friendly food hall houses 10 different merchants in the same building. Pick a pour from Santa Fe Brewing Co., then select your favorite dishes from eclectic menus at Amore Neapolitan Pizzeria, Phu Kup Vietnamese, S-A BBQ and more. Dogs are allowed to eat on the balcony or stare at you lovingly from comfortable seating in the indoor dining area.

Hotel Parq Central is the perfect base for two- and four-legged tourists, who will be welcomed with treats, beds, and water bowls by the hotel’s pet ambassador, Tobie. There’s even a dog park on the property.

Cozy up with your pup in the covered outdoor area at Covington Yard. Hungry hounds can help you decide between Korean BBQ at Mr. Bulgogi, classic tacos from Nacho Average Taco Cart, tenders from Talons Cincy Fried, and handhelds at Hangry Mar’s Slider Shack. Wash down your selection with a Lawnmower Lemonade cocktail or draft from the tap. Fido will feel like he’s in his own backyard while he toasts his paws next to the outdoor heaters on the astroturf lawn or on the covered patio.

Wind down for the evening at Kentucky Gem Rooftop Deck, a comfortable townhouse with room for the whole pack.
