There are great spots for you and Fido near the 145 Front apartments in downtown Worcester.

Worcester is a pet-friendly city. It’s full of walkable neighborhoods, and with the revitalization of downtown there are more places than ever to take our furry friends. The 145 Front apartments in downtown Worcester were built with this in mind. Pet-friendly apartments, an outdoor bark park, and a designated pet-washing area make 145 Front perfect for our fluffy companions.

But, say you want to venture outside downtown and spend the whole day out? There’s no need to send Fido to doggy daycare (although Worcester has plenty of those, too). We’ve got the top five restaurants, bars, and cafes outside the city that offer a place for pets, so you can enjoy the company of man’s best friend all day long.

The Fix Burger Bar

In addition to great food and great service, this Worcester classic is known for its spiked root beer float and delicious pretzel bites. The spot received five out of five bones from Bring Fido. It boasts an outdoor patio with shade umbrellas available as the weather gets warmer. The Fix is just an eight-minute drive from the 145 Front apartments in downtown Worcester.


Slater’s has a similar outdoor setup to The Fix, but offers different fare. People love the pulled pork nachos and baby back ribs, as well as the classic wood-fire baked pizzas. Five out of five bones. And just a 20-minute drive from 145 Front at City Square.

Zorba’s Taverna

This restaurant specializes in Greek Mediterranean fare. The hummus, vegetarian entrees, and shrimp are popular. Although it’s just a 10-minute drive from the 145 Front apartments in downtown Worcester, there’s limited outdoor seating and it’s BYOB. Still, it received five out of five bones from Bring Fido.

C’est la vie bistro

This French-style café is the perfect place to pass a few pleasant hours. Whether you’re looking for some quality coffee and pastries, or you’re in the mood for an authentic croque monsieur, you can get it here. The bistro is a 16-minute drive and has a large deck in back. Five out of five bones.

Kay’s Dairy Bar

If you’re looking for a more involved outing, consider Kay’s Dairy Bar. Paired with a lovely walk in the Leominster State Forest, it just might be the perfect day for you and Fido. This is a 40-minute trip each way. A cone or a milkshake will cool you both down after some fun in the sun. Four out of five bones.
