Greeted at the Door and seated right away. Fast, friendly staff. Great food and drinks. Hubby had a calzone, daughter had chicken broccoli fettuccine alfredo and I had a burger with a cup of soup. All of us were very happy with our selection. Dempseys is perfect spot to take the Family for a wonderful meal!

I have only been there for lunch. Would like to visit in the evening to try their various beers. The beer selection seems to be something to go there for. The lunch food is average as I have had both great and not so good meals. It is somewhat fast in my experience which is nice for business lunches.

This is a fun place. There is plenty to choose, from food to drinks! Our table of for enjoyed the pizza, fish and chips and salads. Our server was polite and efficient even though it was very busy.

7 of us women stopped here after church and we loved every part of it. Several had a local beer and loved it. 2 pizzas were ordered and they were a hit. The leek soup wasn't as flavorful as they would have liked. The waitress was busy but she took great care of us. We would go back again.

We stopped after a hockey game on a recommendation from a friend. The atmosphere is awesome and the wait staff was very good and attentive.There is a wide variety on the menu including perogies, which my wife and son enjoyed. My other son had a great pizza. We will come back when we visit Watertown again for hockey.

Such a great place to stop for a beer or 20. Highly recommend the pizza and their new "ice cream" shot.
