Our most visited place in town. Good beer, food, and portion sizes. Oh, and the best pizza in the state! Service can be shoddy at times but generally is good. They have made tremendous improvements all around over the past few years and I expect the consistency to remain solid (this was the biggest issue they used to have).

After being out of the area for 4 months, it was so good to be back and have a Dempsey’s pizza. Nothing else says welcome home quite like it.

This has become a destination stop on our trip to Ferguson Falls. The authentic Irish cuisine is outstanding. Very comfortable environment and a great place for few drinks.
