Our little guys deal with a lot of rejection when it comes to dining options. I get it, Fido has some blatter control issues, but can't we find a way to make this work? Of course, Houston has dog-friendly dining options across the city, but finding one that doesn't compromise on the food quality is tough. Luckily, we have Barnaby's Cafe—known for their delicious dishes and dog-obsession all the same. 

A city favorite, Barnaby's has locations is the Museum District, the Heights, River Oaks, Woodway, Midtown, downtown, Fountainview and Fairview (the OG).

You and your furry friend have an abundance of food options to explore at any of these locations. Here is just a taste of the variety they offer. You can view the full menu here.

  • Homemade Mac and Cheese
  • All Natural Cheeseburgers
  • Pesto Chicken Salad Sandwhich
  • Homemade Spinach and Cheese Lasagna
  • Barnaby's Chopped Chef Salad
  • Hickory Smoked "Pink" Chicken
  • Danish Baby Back Ribs
  • Mexican Carnitas Torta

They also have a tasty breakfast menu, kids menu, and dessert options like the Chocolate Addiction and their legendary Rainbow Cake that matches their picturesque wall.

Your waitor will even make sure Fido is kept hydrated, fed, and happy.

This popular spot draws in crowds too, so call ahead or be ready to wait on a table.

And of course, they sell massive dog biscuits (why aren't they called dog barks?!). Or your pup could just order off the big kid menu—who could say no to that face?

If you're looking to classy-up your puppy date, order any of their red or white wines. They even offer Strawmosas—strawberry lemonade with sparkling wine!
