dog-friendly in Charlotte, NC

Hi everyone! My family has recently relocated to Charlotte and we love doing stuff outdoors with our dog. We've visited many cities where outdoor dining was possible with one's 4-legged BFF, so we're hoping to find a few options in our new city. Bonus points if the food is really good, and even better if the place is close to one of the dog parks :-)

Help? TIA!!!

  1. Dogs are allowed on the patio of Philosopher's Stone in the Elizabeth neighborhood (I think it's on 7th St? That or Caldwell). There is also a Dog Bar in the NODA neighborhood where dogs are welcome.

    1. If dog is your passion I say go with Korean cuisine. No one can prepare pooch like our Korean friends.

        a-hahahaha... no. Of all the delicacies my Korean roommate in college introduced me to, *dog* was not one of them. I would love to find a great Korean place in CLT tho.

        Seriously folks, no other foodies in town are ever caught out & about with their dogs at chow-time?

          There's a Korean place out on Monroe Road that gets a lot of love on this board. Haven't been but would like to. I can't think of a place that has outdoor dining that would object to your dog provided it was quiet and on a leash.

            I have been to Cho Won Garden a Korean restaurant on Independence Blvd. near Crownpoint Executive Dr. I enjoyed it very much. I have never taken my dog out to dinner and I stay away from his bowl. So far things are working out fine for us. I guess I have no french in me?

        2. If you haven't found it yet, the US National Whitewater center is a great place to dine outdoors with your dog. The food is good, they have a decent beer selection, and you can hike off your meal afterwards!
