We are pet friendly

At Volunteer Veterinary Hospital, we love our hometown for so very many reasons. One of our favorites, though, is all of the pet-friendly spots in and around the city. If you are looking for something to do with your pet in Knoxville, here are some of our top suggestions:

Barley’s Taproom & Pizzeria

One of Knoxville’s favorite spots for pizza and beers, Barley’s Taproom & Pizzeria has a dog-friendly patio. Bring Fido on your next dining excursion to enjoy the tasty menu selections and hard-to-beat atmosphere. The taproom is open until 10 PM on weeknights and until midnight on weekends.

Bistro by the Tracks

Another great dining spot with a dog-friendly patio, Bistro by the Tracks is a quaint spot with an extensive menu of great wine and food. The next time you’re in the mood for an evening of quality eating and drinking (with your pup in tow), head on over to Brookview Town Centre and check out this culinary experience.

Movies at McGill

There’s no better way to enjoy a beautiful summer night than to check out Movies at McGill with your family and furry friends. Starting back up on May 21, there will be family-friendly games and a movie projected on a giant screen. Whether you are looking for a great date spot or just want to give your kids a new summer experience, this is the pet-friendly place for you.

Blackhorse Pub & Brewery Downtown

Whether you are craving one of their signature burgers or are in the mood for Saturday brunch, this downtown hotspot has a pet-friendly patio so your pup can enjoy the day as well. Blackhorse Pub & Brewery Downtown is a great meeting place to catch up with friends or just enjoy the beautiful Knoxville weather on their lovely patio. 

Knoxville City Greenways

With 14 acres of trails, sports fields and courts, playgrounds, and picnic spots, Knoxville City Greenways is the ideal spot for enjoying the great outdoors. Bring your pup for an invigorating morning run or a leisurely afternoon stroll and bask in the beautiful Knoxville greenery.
