To some, a pet can be just as important as their own flesh and blood. Because of this, people are taking their fur babies along on vacations and often run into problems finding accommodations that accept reservations that include guests of the four legged variety. Luckily there are over 200 various vacation rentals available on Hilton Head Island that allow pets and over 80 restaurants that let you bring your sweet pupper to dinner with you. So once you’re settled into your room and ready to eat, peruse through our list of dog friendly dining spots to make your dinner decision a lot easier!

Watusi Café

We’re going to start out list off with a fabulous breakfast spot here on Hilton Head Island called Watusi Café. They serve a full breakfast menu all day as well as lighter fare like salads, sandwiches, and wraps while also providing a menu just for your dog! The outdoor area is pet friendly and with the amazing weather we have here, it’s an excellent spot to enjoy some grub while also engaging in some hardcore people watching.

The Black Marlin

You cannot come to the beach (and this is true anywhere in the country) without indulging in some local seafood. THE place to go for the largest selection of mouthwatering fresh-caught fish, seafood, and hand-cut stakes is The Black Marlin on Helsman Way. Take a frozen cocktail out on the dog-friendly patio in this hard-to-find local haunt to experience the laid back lifestyle that is true to form here on the island.

Bomboras Grille

We haven’t forgotten about Happy Hour, and the perfect place to spend it is at Bomboras Grille between 4pm and 6pm. You’ll find .50c wings, .75 cent oysters, $4 house wines and liquors, and so much more! You’ve got Fido there with you to make sure he walks you home safely, so take your friends and your puppers friends for a relaxing evening on their pet-friendly patio.

Pino Gelato

To cap off our list of fabulous pet friendly dining spots around the island, we’re going the obvious route and giving you a dessert option! Dig into one of the 24 different flavors of gelato and sorbetto at Pino Gelato in their pet-friendly courtyard and they’ll bring your doggo a treat! After a long hot day, this is the best place to cool off for both you and your pet.

Hopefully our list helps you plan a fantastic day of delicious gluttony here on Hilton Head Island! #staycomfy
