"After not being there in two years we were most unhappy to find that they no longer have the wonderful salad bar they were known for. In addition, everything on the menu is now ala crate and outrageously over priced. Three of us ordered Filet Steaks which we all felt were mushy as if they were over marinated. My steak had to be returned as it was significantly over cooked. The ala carte vegetables arrived Luke warm and were returned to be reheated. My baked potato for two was served on a small plate and had not been cut to enable putting it on two plates. The service, although adequate was not what one could expect from a place that considers themselves "fine dining". A shrimp coctail for $16 contained 3 shrimp. The onion soup, although tasty contained way too much filler bread. A glass of house red wine at $12 was hardly noticeable in the glass it was served in.
Bottom line, after four visits in previous years which were all memorably good experiences, none of the four of us will ever return to Dempsey's. All this disappointment, cold side dishes, mushy steaks, baked potato for two served on a single dish and no salad bar, and the cost for four of us was a measly $390. And finally no one acknowledged the fact that three of us were celebrating birthdays which were noted on our reservation.
Sorry to say that Dempsey's is no longer a place to go unless you area gluten for punishment and like to be "ripped off"!"

"Dempsey's is a throw back to the by gone era of huge cuts of meat and large, fantastic sides.
The prime steaks are cooked to perfection. The meat is fabulous. The side dishes are a great variety and very very good

"Took forever, by the time our food arrived I was too tired to even eat. Honestly a little overpriced compared to Grill Smith that's 10 min away and the service is 100 times better."

"First night, not really hungry, shared a bone-in filet with friend who wanted hers well done (I mean, that's just wrong.) Sat at bar. Bartender started out with a bit of an attitude. We politely asked if he had nuts or something light to munch on, to which he curtly replied, "restaurants don't do that anymore." Well, in all the high end restaurants I've been to, it is not unusual to serve olives or nuts. Anyway, his attitude changed when he realized two women were eating, drinking and tipping well. Next day, ordered my own steak on the rare side. Melt in your mouth buttery tasty tenderloin. Third day, ordered sashimi grade tuna and that, too, was outstanding. The sides, asparagus and beefsteak tomatoes and mozzarella, were delish. Asparagus cooked perfect al dante and the tomatoes actually had flavor which is hard to come by these days. Chocolate cake dessert was a little dry, but all in all, it is a top notch restaurant with both seafood and prime meat."

"We have dined at Dempsey's Steakhouse more than 30 times over the past 10 years for family events, social nights with friends and business dinners. This dinner was meant to thank good friends for helping us during a recent family crisis. We picked Dempsey's since we wanted to spoil them with a great restaurant, great service and great food. What we ended up with was one out of three - a restaurant with great ambiance. Service was slow throughout the entire evening and infrequent checks on how our meal was, soup and salad served 15 minutes apart which meant two were eating and two were waiting or if we required anything else. The food ... which I typically enjoy from steaks to fresh seafood ... was nothing close to our previous experience. The soup was lukewarm and the steak was cool (not the best way to serve a steak). No option to return or complain since no one really checked. The best part of the dinner was the wine selected - with the exception that we had to pour our own glasses throughout the service. Bottom line, for a $650.00 check ... the value was closer to $280 (cost of the wine only)."

"We enjoyed a superb, tasty dinner of tableside-prepared Caesar salad with bone-in prime rib. Both were perfectly prepared, steaks cooked to exact desired temperatures and color and the wine list is one of the best in all of Tampa-area.
to get to the nice part of the restaurant, you have to walk-through the bar area which was loud and crowded, but it was worth it. Other only negative note - ladies wearing heels should consider having to walk about 200-250 yards to go from car valet to the restaurant. not ideal.
Overall, despite two minor negatives, it was an excellent dinner with excellent service."

"We've been to many restaurants in many places and are happy to pay over $50 per person for a special occasion (birthdays/anniversaries etc.) and places such as Capital Grille, Morton's or Ruth Chris Steakhouse always are worth the money--service is impeccable and food is excellent and timely. The key is in the management and training of staff. They have a system for remembering your name, putting a special gift on the table, seating you in a choice spot and creating an atmosphere of being "special for a night". We've received "on the house" wine or desert for special occasions and friendly conversations with hosts and weight staff.
The Dempsey's experience (been twice) is always tired, a little slow and food is good enough but not amazing for the price. On our 2nd visit, the hostess appeared tired and aloof. When we asked for a certain open table, she said it was being cleaned so we had to sit elsewhere. We said we'd wait but she said it couldn't be done and we'd have to find the manager (as opposed to her finding the manager.) It didn't have to be a big deal. Then, after being seated it was 15 minutes before the waiter asked us for drink orders. The waiter was very friendly but lacked training in attending to the table in a timely manner or if he could not, to let us know and bring extra rolls or water etc. Food was good but not amazing...if we're going to spend big money for dinner again, we'll be at one of the above restaurants :)

"There were four of us. My filet was wonderful- even though the waiter told me I should order the ribeye because of the marble. My husband and Dad got the Sea Bass, also very good. My mom went for the ribeye and it had so much fat, she couldn't eat most of it. Our waiter took forever to bring us our check and never came back for it. For the money, this is not a repeat!"

"Dempsey's is one of our favorites and it has always been known for is quality salad bar in addition to its steaks, etc. However, on this occasion we found that the salad bar is no longer offered. And, to boot, their menu includes only two salads -- a caprisi and a Cesar for two. No nice greens/salad are offered at all. Also, in this case, our necessary flatware was taken away and not replenished such that we had to ask for a fork to eat our entrees."

"Having never been there.....could not believe valet car and then walk 300 yards to restaurant. Did have transportation but told only 50 yards. Steak was grossly under cooked and not as good as one at Outback or Long Horn. Wait person sweated really bad while making Caesar Salad at our table. Had informed it was our anniversary and no recognition. Bill with only one glass of wine each and dinner was over $200 with tip. Not a good experience and will not go back."

"I took my son for his birthday. We got the sashimi appetizer, very good. Entree we got the veal steak - good not great, and the Chilean sea bass - fantastic. The mixed drinks were also very good. Expect to spend $120 for 2 with drinks. Many son was given a chocolate souffle free for his birthday - that was fantastic."

"I have been to Dempsey's many times and the food and service is always the same.......great !
The steaks are the best and always cooked as ordered. The sides are also very good . On this visit they had these super large Maine oysters . They were among the freshest tasting I've had.
Dempsey's is the "go to" place for dining pleasure you can count on. The only downside is that they have taken down the salad table which i have come to love. According to our waitress , it is temporary and will be back.
