30A welcomes all furry friends to join in on the fun! Our beach community enjoys staying active with walks, runs, bike rides, paddle boarding, and all the outdoor adventures. And as you travel along 30A, you will see friendly faces from people and their pets --- so the question is... what awesome 30a restaurants will let me bring my puppy? 

Most of all 30A restaurants invite you to an outdoor deck or patio when you dine with your four-legged friend. Our five favorite dog-friendly 30a restaurants have delicious dishes AND welcoming atmospheres for all the guests in your party (as long as they don't bite ;).
