Dempsey's has a great location on the river,just over the bridge to downtown, so many interesting characters pass by the very inviting patio. The menu changes seasonally; we had the early fall menu and could also choose from a special ""Dios de Los Muertos" menu. Both the regular and the specials menu gave many interesting selections. We were very happy... More

Nestlé in for a lunch or dinner...Whether it be Inside in a booth, or outside; umbrellaed by trees overlooking the river. Dempsey's menu changes seasonally, and never fails to please.

We enjoyed a great meal there and the service was excellent. Can't decide what kind of beer to have, ask for a sampler tray.

Dempsey's is a great local hangout. With their friendly staff, outdoor seating, good selection of beer, and very good food, it's always a winner. Be sure to check out their specials menu as well as the group of herons that live in the trees in front of the restaurant.

Dempsey's is tucked away at the back of a shopping area and is easy to miss. It's situated along a small but somewhat charming Petaluma waterway, near a pedestrian bridge that takes people to the downtown area. Parking is ample because of the shopping area. My wife & I had Cuban sandwiches that were perfect. Service was great and except... More

We have gotten into a bit of a rut - I always get the Petaluma Strong Ale and my wife always gets the Red Rooster. We probably should try some of their other beers and we always plan to do so, but then we order our usual. The pizzas are quite good. Recently we decided to nosh and just got... More

Brewhouse with a bar area, some inside seating in booths and tables, and a nice patio. They have salads, sandwiches, and pizza on the menu. Some bar bites too. A few vegetarian options. I had the falafel sandwich, which was good. Fries were a little cold and bland. Their beers are pretty good. I liked the strong ale. A nice... More

We ordered a cheese pizza, burgers and a thai salad. All four were perfect and not even the kids had a complaint. I highly recommend this place.

Nice place to eat downtown located on the river running through Petaluma. Staff was great, answered my questions on food menu and selection. After the meal, a walk around the downtown had easy access. There is a large parking area from the shopping mall side which makes easy access to the restaurant and downtown area.
