I've been to this place twice and both times got sandwiches and appetizers, though they serve a variety of dishes, including some entrees, wraps etc, but considering it is a bar rather than a fine restaurant, I find their appetizers tasting the best.

Great place to stop for lunch, dinner, or a few drinks at the bar. Portions are generous, the staff is friendly, and prices are reasonable. I highly recommend this place. And remember, throw the shells on the floor!

We all had either sandwiches or wraps, all of which were over stuffed and delicious! The atmosphere is great and you seldom have to wait in line.... More

My hubby and I recently went to Dempsey's for dinner. We love this place because the restaurant is small, the atmosphere is cozy, the food is delicious, and the staff treats you like family. We ordered the lobster macaroni and cheese dinner which came with soup or salad; I chose the escarole /pasta soup. We shared the dinner because we... More
