Your dog isn't just a pet. He's your friend, your running buddy, and the keeper of your deepest secrets. So why wouldn't you go out on the town with him?
Miami's tropical climate ensures there are plenty of places with outdoor spaces perfect for you and Binky or Bosco to enjoy together. And though most restaurant patios welcome you and your pooch, some go far beyond the complimentary water dish by catering to four-legged friends via special doggie dishes and freebies.
Here are the five best restaurants for you and your dog to have a wonderful outing together.
5. The Spillover
Matt Kuscher's the Spillover offers sustainable seafood and a wide selection of ciders and meads. Your pooch has his very own menu here, featuring chicken and rice, meatballs and veggies, and Cuban "chew-gars" (dog biscuits in the shape of cigars) — each $5. Lokal, the Spillover's burger-and-beer brother, offers a similar doggie menu (and Bowser beer) if you're hankering for something meatier.

4. Shake Shack
While you're downing your favorite ShackBurger ($5.29), your furry companion can indulge in the Pooch-ini ($3.99), a creamy dish of vanilla custard smothered in peanut butter sauce and garnished with dog biscuits. While you're at it, take home a Bag O'Bones ($7.99), a package of five biscuits lovingly baked by Bocce Bakery.
