We love bringing our dogs out to socialize with people and other friendly pets that are out on the town. Palm Beach is full of great places where you can bring your favorite furry friend. However, when it comes to restaurants, it can be a challenge to find places where you won’t feel out of place. Here are some of Will’s favorite dog-friendly restaurants with a great atmosphere and even better food!
If you feel like being in the downtown area for the afternoon, then Rocco’s Tacos is your place for lunch. This popular Mexican grill is a downtown staple. The outdoor patio allows you and your pup to sit outside, enjoy the fresh air, and people watch until your heart’s content. Servers will graciously provide water to your dog while you sip on a delicious margarita. The food at Rocco’s is legendary, and the service is equally as fantastic.

Howley’s Diner is a West Palm Beach institution that isn’t going anywhere any time soon. Their tag line is “cooked in sight, must be right” because of their home cooking mentality. There are no microwaves in this establishment, meaning the food is prepared fresh and per-table. Howley’s is arguably one of the coolest places in town. With a large back patio, dogs of all sizes are welcomed and offered fresh water. The crowd at Howley’s is one that is familiar with each other, and once you go there a couple of times, you are part of the community. Howley’s is also a facilitator of some great local art shows. Almost all of their art pieces that adorn the walls are for sale, and they are all truly one of a kind. The fare is American classic with homemade fried chicken and a daily TV dinner special. You can’t miss this one-of-a-kind-place. Howley’s is located at 4700 South Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach.
