About The Stubborn Mule

Is The Stubborn Mule dog friendly?

Yes, The Stubborn Mule is dog friendly and makes our curated list of the best pet friendly restaurants in Orlando. Located in the Thornton Park area, often referred to by locals as the “grownups downtown,” this restaurant has garnered recognition for its culinary excellence, boasting awards for its cocktails and wine selection. With a diverse menu of playful New American cuisine, daily happy hour specials, and enticing deals like Mule Monday, it’s a destination where guests can enjoy a relaxed dining experience and great cocktails while surrounded by eclectic art, with their pets by their side.

Renowned for its consistently delicious fare, the restaurant offers a variety of dishes to satisfy every palate. The lunch and dinner menu feature appetizers such as Sticky Pork Belly, Lemon Hummus, and Zucchini Apple Fritters, as well as entrees like the Stubborn Mule Burger, Chipotle Cheesesteak, and lighter fare such as the Salmon Salad, alongside flatbreads and handheld sandwiches. Brunch favorites include the Waffle Burger, Steak and Eggs, and the Cuban Press. Keep an eye out for their Daily Features—Fresh Catch, Soup of the Day, Chef’s Cut, and Desserts—by scanning the QR code on the menu.

The Stubborn Mule offers abundant pet-friendly seating, including covered and uncovered areas, allowing guests to enjoy their meal while their pets relax nearby. Conveniently located less than half a mile from Lake Eola, and an easy drive from many of our favorite pet friendly hotels in downtown Orlando, it’s the perfect spot for a post-meal walk with your pup. Nearby parking options include free street parking or paid options like the 101 Eola Garage or MAA Parkside Garage for visitors’ convenience. As their motto says, “Eat, Play, Drink, Repeat,” this establishment will have you coming back for more.
