This hidden gem in West Midtown is a groovy little spot for tacos, margaritas, and an awesome time. They have a small covered patio with ceiling fans to keep you cool where your dog is also welcomed.

3. Treehouse Restaurant And Pub

We love the easygoing vibes and plant-covered patio at this shabby chic Buckhead spot that’s perfect for you and your pup. Their menu is pretty expansive with a little something for everyone, and they serve a mean brunch, too.

4. Cypress St. Pint & Plate

817 W Peachtree St NW, Atlanta, GA 30308

There’s a lot of great neighborhood bars and gastropubs around Atlanta, but not a lot of them do it better than Cypress St. Pint & Plate. Everything on their menu is mouthwatering delicious, the servers always make you feel like you’re at home, and they have outdoor seating you can bring your dog to. Their wings are solid, their late night menu is rockin’, and their brunch is also a hidden gem that’s delicious and generally wait-free.
