Mostly, I eat breakfast here and always find it to be delicious. Whenever, we have out of town guests, this is a must place to eat and they are always charmed. Good service, good food, and very local.

Lunch at Dempsey's is a treat. Great staff serves you quickly and efficiently. Specials include the crab cake club ... it's amazing with lots of real crab. Decor is sort of ordinary 50s and that's okay with us. Great food with great service at a...More
