Pets Allowed! 5 Dog Friendly Restaurants on Alabama’s Gulf Coast

I have two giant dogs, a yellow lab and a rescued pit-boxer mix that are both above 60 pounds. Normally there are tons of restrictions when it comes to pet-friendly properties and things to do. However, we’ve found some great places along The Gulf Coast that welcome our fur babies! I hate leaving my pets at home when I travel so any chance I get to bring them with me is a win! Vacationing to a house on the beach where you can bring your entire family (pets included) is a dream! There are some amazing places to stay that are pet friendly (including beachfront), restaurants where you can dine with your dogs, plus beaches and parks close by! So next time you’re ready for a vacation, pack up the family and take a road trip to Alabama’s Gulf Coast!

Make sure to check out these pet-friendly restaurants
