5 Best Dog-Friendly Charleston Restaurants

One of the best things about living in Charleston, South Carolina is the number of amazing dog-friendly restaurants in the area. Dogs are just like a family member and that means lots of Charlestonians love to take their pups along to the places they love to eat! Here are some of our favorite places, out of so many dog-friendly Charleston restaurants in the area, that my family and I take our dogs to. If you haven’t been to these amazing restaurants, we highly recommend that you try out every single one of them! Dining out with your four-legged family member is a wonderful way to spend time with your dog and enjoy the amazing Charleston weather.

Taco Boy in downtown Charleston is the perfect place for you to relax with your pup and a delicious drink!

1. Taco Boy

Taco Boy has two locations, Folly Beach, South Carolina and in downtown Charleston on Huger Street. They both welcome dogs, and the downtown location has a bigger outside seating area. Taco Boy even has fans for you and your dogs to help brave the hot summer days. Always ask for fresh water for your dog so they won’t catch any germs.

Lost Dog Café is located on Folly Beach, South Carolina. The food is a delicious breakfast and lunch spot, and the most importing thing is it’s pet-friendly. When you bring your fur family members along you can enjoy the outside seating.
