If you are like us, your dogs are a part of the family. They share your home, they travel with you on vacations, they revel with you in the good times, and they are there for you in the bad times.

There are even some who are SO attached to their dog that they schedule almost EVERYTHING with their pooch in mind. That’s why we wanted to put together a list of dog-friendly restaurants (or bars) in the Lafayette area.

Before we get to the list, it comes with a few disclaimers.

DISCLAIMER #1

We didn’t take time to call each restaurant to ask about their pet policy. We don’t have the time to call each restaurant to ask about their pet policy.

DISCLAIMER #2

If you get to one of these restaurants with your pooch and they tell you that you can’t have your dog there, don’t come at us, bro: we’re just sharing what we found on the Reddit.

As far as this list goes, you’ll notice all of the restaurants feature an outdoor dining area. Please contact individual restaurants if you are hoping to bring your pet to an indoor dining area (and good luck with that: Louisiana law doesn't allow it).

If you know of another pet-friendly establishment that we missed, please feel free to drop a comment and give us the name and location of the establishment so we can add it to the list.

Bark appetit!
