South Tampa residents love their pets, and the number of restaurants open to (leashed) four-legged diners is proof of that. Here are 16 pup-friendly eateries throughout the neighborhood.

Rodney the Miniature Dachshund at the Hyde Park Village
Though pets are welcome in the vast majority of South Tampa’s outside spaces, it’s still unusual for them to be allowed inside. Not so at Hyde Park Village, where many stores allow leashed pets to accompany their owners while shopping. Grab a bite with your furry friend by your side on the patios of Goody Goody, Irish 31, Timpano Italian Chophouse or Wine Exchange.

Callahan the Toy Australian Shepherd at Square 1 Burgers
Dogs are so important to Square 1 that they have dishes prepared just for them. Grab a seat on the patio and ask for Jingo’s Menu, named after the owner’s dog. Better yet, dog entrees are free with the purchase of any two regular entrees during Yappy Hour Mondays.

Buddy the Bull Terrier Mix at Mad Dogs and Englishmen
Don’t worry, pups need not be angry to be welcomed here. Dogs are allowed on the umbrella-shaded front porch and covered back deck. Enjoy a cold pint and traditional English pub grub while your dog cools off with a bowl of fresh water.
