Take Your Furry Friend on A Doggie Date to These Pet-Friendly Long Beach Restaurants
Updated: Jul 3
Pet Waggin’ absolutely ADORES our Long Beach community! From Rosie’s Dog Beach to the shops on 2nd street to all the amazing people in between, we’re proud to call Long Beach our home! One of the greatest things about Long Beach is the fact that so many amazing restaurants welcome our furry friends to dine with us!
But, we’re here to dig a little deeper and give a shoutout to some of our favorite places that do a little extra to accommodate our special canines!
This Irish Pub is a great place to take your pet for a doggie date because you know he’ll be treated right! This pub features live music, great comfort food, a pawtio for dining with pups, and a special dog menu! If you want to know just how special the owner treats furry customers, we wanted to share part of a Yelp review from Evie W on 6/2/2019. She wrote, “The owner brought out a blanket for our new boxer who had been shaking because he was nervous. The blanket really did the trick. Thank you!” If you’re ready for your new go-to place, look no further!
Address: 4000 East Anaheim Street
Hours: Tues - Fri: 11am - 10pm; Sat 9am - 10pm; Sun 9am - 3pm
This family-run business is the second venture for the McKee family. After the success of their first restaurant, Eggs Etc (which is also a wonderful pet-friendly restaurant that our founder, Mary Ellen, LOVES), they wanted to bring their family cooking and legendary banana pancakes closer to Long Beach and the students and faculty and Cal State Long Beach. Their large, shaded, dog-friendly patio makes this local spot a great place to grab breakfast or lunch when you’re out on your morning or afternoon walk!
Address: 6200 B Pacific Coast Highway
Hours: 7am - 2pm daily
The Social List is a fun modern European tavern here in Long Beach based on the concept of sharing and community.

You can think of Beachwood as “innovative BBQ.” As they like to say, they like to “teeter between tradition and innovation, crossing the line between BBQ that everyone knows and loves and new favorites that are waiting to be enjoyed.” They feature 22 rotating taps and one cask-conditioned beer, incredible brisket, 24-hour marinated pulled pork, and ribs that fall off the bone.

All the Long Beach locals know about Starling Diner. It’s been around forever and is a true favorite for dining with your doggie. Located in Belmont Heights, it’s the perfect spot to get breakfast all day long on their pet-friendly patio. Hint: They only have about 4 outdoor tables, so we suggest getting there early. ;)
