You’ve got a while until the dog days of summer are officially here — July 12 – August 20 — but why not get a head start?
There are lots of pet-friendly restaurants throughout the Texas Hill Country, so your favorite barkin’ best friend doesn’t have to miss out on the fun.
We’re looking at a few Lake Travis area spots that are even friendlier than pet-friendly. They’re almost pet-mandatory.
Angel’s is the perfect roadside spot for a cold beer, good eats, and live music under the trees. Angel’s is a top-ranked dog-friendly destination too.
There’s plenty of room to roam with a large area that acts as a dog park away from the stage and the playscape. Plus, Angel’s has menu items that cater to Fido’s sophisticated palette. Meat, meat, and more meat.
When you want to catch a spectacular sunset with your four-legged bestie, it’s hard to beat Oasis Texas Brewing Company located on the fourth level at The Oasis. There’s plenty of room on the spacious patio for you and your pup to relax and soak in the Lake Travis views.
We first fell in love with this ah-maze-ing brewery back in 2014. The atmosphere is simply stunning, the food is delicious, and the craft beer is award-winning. The taproom is open Tuesday-Sunday (at noon) and current sunset time is 8:13pm.
Yeah, The Salt Lick is kind of beyond legendary BBQ, but if you haven’t been in a while, maybe you have a hankering’s for it now? And your dog will be in meat-sniffing’ heaven.
There is a location in Round Rock, but we say go for the full experience by driving out to Driftwood for that rustic Texas ambiance. Plus, Fido likes hanging his head out the window.
With a motto that they’re all about family, you know Family Business Beer Company is pet-friendly. After all, how can you truly enjoy a cold HipHop-opotamus IPA without your pups nearby?
That’s why you are more than welcome to bring them along for a craft beer experience in the Hill Country. The large oak grove is the perfect spot to relax and play outdoor games. Plus, there are delicious food trucks on-site, so you may want to grab a bite…or two.
About a year ago, Jester King Brewery purchased 107 acres of land that included Stanley’s Farmhouse Pizza. This bumped Jester King’s acreage to a total of 165, so you can only imagine how lovely it is to see green space for as far as the eye can see. No commercial development fears here.
They offer brewery tours and farm tours, and there are a tap house and a restaurant. You and your well-behaved pooch need to plan on making it an afternoon. Indulge in the beer, the pizza, and the beauty of it all.
