Teak Neighborhood Grill
Teak Neighborhood Grill is another great spot to bring your pup! This fun pub serves microbrews and 37 different kinds of handcrafted burgers! (19 of these burgers are on an “underground” secret menu!) The atmosphere here is fun and laid-back. They host trivia nights, there’s live music and it’s a great place to watch your favorite sporting event. There is a large, covered patio where you are welcome to bring your dog. The servers are so happy to see dogs and they will even bring them a bowl of water!

The Stubborn Mule
The Stubborn Mule is a contemporary-style venue that has a very interesting take on New American cuisine. They partner with local farmers and sustainable fisherman, so they are quite literally “farm-to-table”. This fun restaurant serves hand-crafted mule cocktails, craft cocktails, draft beers, wine, and an excellent selection of fresh food. If you’re in the mood for great appetizers, salads, soups, flatbreads, sandwiches, burgers and more, this is the place for you. They have a beautiful, outdoor patio where you can enjoy a great meal with your dog.

The Ravenous Pig
The Ravenous Pig is a great place to go if you are craving good food and good brews! This gastropub/brewery recently opened in Winter Park and has already proven to be a pretty popular spot! The food here is mainly American style cuisine and is so delicious and savory and I highly recommend it. There is also, of course, a beautiful outdoor beer garden and patio area where dogs are always welcome!
White Wolf Café
White Wolf Café is an award-winning, gourmet bistro located in Ivanhoe Village that serves breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. It’s a really fun and eclectic atmosphere. The café is adorned with paintings and unique decor. The White Wolf is very dog friendly, in fact, it got its name from a white German Shepard named Casper! They are located right across the street from Lake Ivanhoe Park, which is a great spot to bring your dog after you enjoy a delicious meal here!

They have signature sandwiches that are cleverly named after dogs such as the Hot Diggity Dog, Classic Mexican Mutt, Retrievers Roast and more! There is a spacious outdoor patio area that you can bring your pup and enjoy the incredible food that they have to offer.
