Downtown Napa is a must-visit destination on your Napa Valley vacation. The town at the southern point of Napa Valley has undergone a glamorous renovation as of late. Follow the Napa River on the riverfront promenade, spend hours perusing the Oxbow Market, and take in the local cuisine with your canine-companion in this world-class destination. Want to include your pup in your wine country vacation? Here are five dog-friendly restaurants in downtown Napa.
Located in a historic 1890s ship chandlery, this French country restaurant offers up refined bistro fare, wine, and specialty cocktails. Hang with your pooch out in their terrace seating, which is adjacent to the Napa river walk, and your dog will be immediately greeted with a bowl of water. Overhead heaters or cooling fans ensure you both stay comfortable on the patio, no matter the season. Make sure to order the rich and sweet French onion soup and treat yourself with the Banana Gratin for dessert. 540 Main St, Napa
Overlook the Napa River on a dog-friendly patio at this pub and microbrewery. Downtown Joe’s staff is very attentive to your four-legged friend and has even been known to slip a dog their personal plate of fries. Whether it is live music, karaoke, a Sunday DJ, or any holiday or local event, this lively restaurant always has something to celebrate. Although their burgers are a crowd favorite, their beer battered fish and chips are a standout. And of course, top off either entrée with an order of garlic fries. Try their house-brewed Magnolia Stout, a highly drinkable sweet stout with notes of coffee, chocolate, and maple oatmeal. 902 Main St, Napa
This local hotspot serves up eclectic fare, local craft beer, incredible wines, and great views with a relaxed vibe. This café is located within Oxbow Market, but your dogs are welcome on their deck.

Their classic American menu is basic, but the food is delicious! Join them for breakfast and try the Napa scramble with farm-fresh eggs, mild goat cheese, fresh spinach, and applewood-smoked bacon.
