Pink Mama’s Ice Cream 

Grab a scoop of your favorite ice cream, and order a “paw sundae” for your furry friend. Sit outside in the rocking chairs and take in the sights and sounds of Main Street.

Chicora Alley

There’s plenty of beautiful patio space for you and your pup to enjoy some fantastic fish and chips or nachos, plus an amazing house made dessert.  (Save that one for you – dogs and chocolate don’t agree!)

Shortfields

Fido will love watching the big game and enjoying the beauty of downtown from their outdoor seating area.

Sidewall Pizza Company

Picture-perfect picnic tables available outside for you and your pup to sit a spell and share a slice.

Swamp Rabbit Brewery

A cold beer on a hot day with your faithful companion by your side – what could be better? Enjoy your favorite brew with your favorite hound on their back porch or on a stool out front.

The Whistle Stop at the American Café

Your weekend just got better – enjoy live music on their rooftop (or rooftop dining when the weather’s nice) and bring your dog along!  Just remember – mainly small pups here!

Upcountry Provisions

You can visit one of TR’s favorite lunch spots and bring your favorite furry lunch date along. Your dog will definitely enjoy lounging in the sun on their outdoor deck.

Wellborn Winery

Enjoy a day at Wellborn Winery – and you don’t have to leave the pup at home.  They even have a fenced area for your favorite pooch.

Chick-fil-a

When what your day needs most is waffle fries, Rover can join you on the patio.  Might as well have a milkshake while you’re there.

Besides their sport fields, playground, and mountain bike track, this downtown Travelers Rest park has walking trails and green space galore for you and your four-legged pal to enjoy.
