There’s nothing like sharing a meal with your best friend—especially if that best friend happens to have four legs and wags his tail. When you’re looking for a dog friendly restaurant in Carpinteria there is no shortage of great options. From breweries to barbecue to bagels, there are plenty of patios to take in the scenery and eat a bite with your furry friends.
Padaro Beach Grill
Padaro Beach Grill, located at 3765 Santa Claus Ln in Carpinteria, is known for serving the “world’s best barbecue.” Chef Gary fixes multi-regional barbecue, serving up Texas brisket, California tri-tip, and more—all smoked right there on site. While they do have indoor dining, they have a large outdoor patio that’s perfect for pooches who would undoubtedly love to steal a bite of your meal.
Island Brewing Company
Island Brewing Company, located at 5049 6th St, is the perfect place to grab a brew, a bite, and share the entire experience with your dog. Island Brewing Company is famous for their tropical tasting beer, including their avocado honey blonde brew—a nod to the Carpinteria Avocado Festival—and the island blonde. Take your pooch to hang out on Island Brewing Company’s porch and soak up that famous California sunshine.
Giovanni’s is a staple for pizza and Italian food on the central coast. They serve up a wide variety of pizzas, pastas, calzones, hot sandwiches, and salads that are vegetarian friendly yet have enough meat on the menus for the carnivores in your life. Giovanni’s also serves local beers from Island Brewery, Firestone, Figueroa Mountain, and Sierra Nevada. With a nice large outdoor eating space, Giovanni’s is a great spot to take your four legged friends.
Rincon Brewery is a local favorite for good brews and great food. Rincon, the famous local surf spot inspires the brewery’s name, which is one of the most famous in the world. Rincon Brewery is committed to serving fresh handcrafted brews and fresh food to their customers. The menu is filled with bar classics like chips and salsa, fish tacos, and sliders, but has a few surprises with organic red quinoa and locally raised brats. A porch that’s filled with sunshine is the perfect spot for you and your dog to enjoy an easygoing afternoon together.
