Maybe it was just the time of day for me but I had 2 sample size Beers. I tried the Red Ale (6.5%abv) & the Smoked Ale (4.3%). They were both outstanding Beers. I live in Victoria Canada and we're known for our many Microbreweries...More

I love Dempsey’s, great place to eat. It’s right on the water and there is a walking bridge right by the restaurant that takes you over to Old Petaluma.

Stopped in for a lunch, caught great sun on the patio by the river and had a pleasant but not great salmon sandwich and good wine delivered by an above average server. The relish was probably the best part of the meal. Would go back...More

They have riverside seating. Happy hour menu is ok. Food is pretty disappointing, definitely a step down from their regular food menu. The nachos are poor and the sweet potato fries are ok. I think this restaurant needs to up their happy hour game.

The service, food and beer was not good. Don't waste your time here. Only gave it 2 stars because the mugs they do their flights in are kinda cool. Too many other good choices in the area.
