“OK breakfast”
Reviewed May 4, 2010

We didn't experiment much with breakfast, we stuck with traditional stuff and found it to be OK, not exceptional - no shortfalls other than 2 pieces of bacon with a standard breakfast is way too little- most serve 3 slices or even 4. The food was satisfactory or a little better - given the write-up, we expected more. The coffee was ordinary. The service was good.

What I would say is that the atmosphere here is a little classier than most breakfast places and the more creative dishes may be what would make this special.

“Ok for breakfast.”
Reviewed October 20, 2009

Went for breakfast, it was just fine but sort of generic (both atmosphere and food). Nice to get fresh fruit as an optional side even though it was just a little. Good location downtown, if you are in the area, by all means stop in, but I would place it behind Rainbow for creativity, and behind Silver Grill or Verns for local flavor. Haven't tried it for lunch yet, but menu looks similarly basic. Paid about $30+tip for breakfast.

“The food was good, but the ambiance left me dry”
Reviewed August 27, 2009

Nice variety to choose from and the food was what I expected - we went for breakfast - but for a town with so many fun, little, old-school eateries, I don't see a lot of reason to go to Dempsey's. Don't get me wrong, the food was fine, but I didn't say 'wow.'

“Excellent!”
Reviewed August 19, 2009

This was our first time at Dempsey's. Our group of five was there for brunch. The food is plentiful, fresh, and tastes great! Service is good, as is the atmosphere. You won't be disappointed.
