In our modern, pet-centric world, it’s not uncommon to see dogs alongside their owners in just about any activity or any place. Whether it’s hiking, paddle-boarding, or even surfing, dog-owners love to have their best canine friend along for the ride.

Going out to eat or for a drink is no exception. And for those who experience the guilt of leaving their dogs lonely and unsupervised for 40+ work hours a week, dog-friendly spots outside the house are all-the-more enticing.

We’ve compiled a list of dog-friendly restaurants, breweries, and bars in and around Fairhaven. But be sure to call ahead to confirm if and where dogs are allowed, as some of the listed places below have restrictions.
