In the food side of things, executive head chef and owner, Sean Danger Von Dempsey, loves to dabble and experiement with flavors and new ideas. Sean traveled to the International School of Pizza in 2014, becoming South Dakota's only certified Pizzaiola. And now Dempsey's has become known for thier New York style pizzas. All of our dough is 24-48 hour cold-aged and cooked in our double decker brick oven. We also offer a very full menu. Complimented with sandwiches, steaks, pastas, and slow smoked prime rib every weekend. 

For the brew-works, we have the pleasure of being South Dakota's second oldest brewery, and we have six flagship beers, plus a seasonal that rotates. Adam Erickson is Dempsey's in house Brew Master. And notably a 2016 Great Service Star Award recipient from South Dakota State and loves playing around in the brew house. You can catch Adam most nights bartending at Dempsey's. 

For the bar, we have a full service bar! Complete with the largest amount of single malt scotch and whiskey in all of Watertown. We have a fun-loving atmosphere, complete with over 70 flags from various countries and military units flying. As well as a massive, iconic mural painted by Larry Negaard. 

Dempsey's can seat 175+ people until summer, when the deck and patio are open for seating. 

Whether you're here for business, pleasure or looking to go where the locals go, we are sure to have what you're looking for!
