Blackbeard’s BBQ – Ventura, CA

Jul 12, 11 Blackbeard’s BBQ – Ventura, CA

Restaurant Address: 1591 Spinnaker Dr. (Suite 115), Parking lot #3, Ventura, CA 93003

Good BBQ with live music. Choice of chicken, beef or pork. We ate on the patio, a raised platform with railing, with our Dobe. They brought her a water dish and kept coming back to check on all of us. This is the last restaurant in a complex, next to a large well kept park, so when we finished dinner we were able to take our dog out for a well earned run on the grass. Doggie poop bag stands were readily available throughout this complex, as well as trash bins.

Restaurant Address: 2742 E 4th St, Long Beach, CA, US 90814 (562) 916-3288

We sat in the charming back patio and they even brought a basket of dog treats out for our German-Shep. We had a vegetarian meatball sandwich, a very original veggie cheeseburger and a great Petit Syrah. It was all delicious, creative and the people are very down-to-earth friendly. This place is not vegetarian but there are lots of vegan/veggie options. We are absolutely thrilled we found this hidden gem. The owners are true animal lovers too!

Address: 6473 E. Pacific Coast Highway Long Beach, CA 90803 Phone 562-795-7668

This restaurant is all about four legged, furry companions. They have several water bowls placed conspicuously throughout their patio. They give out dog treats like candy, and even have a special menu just for dogs, consisting of things like turkey patties and brown rice. And on Fridays, dogs eat for free with the purchase of an entree. I bring my pooch to dine there often. To check out their doggie menu go to

Gallagher’s Pub & Grill

Dec 07, 10 Gallagher’s Pub & Grill

Restaurant Address: 2751 East Broadway, Long Beach, CA 90803  - Phone (562) 856-8000

This is a festive spot I first visited with a group of derby girls partying after the pride parade.

There is a full bar, something on the menu for everyone, and enclosed sidewalk tables where dogs can sit with you at the table.

There were about 5 other small dogs when I was there the last time.

The food is standard pub/grill fare. I’d go back any time I am in Long Beach because my dog is always more relaxed when he has a cocktail.
