A word from Dempsey's Steakhouse at Saddlebrook Resort
Dempsey’s Steakhouse located at Saddlebrook Resort is just north of Tampa 1-mile off I-75. Dempsey’s has the casual atmosphere of a steakhouse with its dark, rustic wood beams yet soft lighting and background music, potted palms, heavy silver, and fine linen for it to be comfortably elegant. Dempsey’s also offers full menu service in the lounge for a more casual atmosphere. You can start out with a selection of bountiful salads from our salad table or a Caesar salad made tableside. We offer USDA Prime steaks including our Black Angus, Rib On Cowboy Steak and fresh line caught seafood like our Chilean Sea Bass and Key West Shrimp. You will also enjoy our sides for two and our chocolate soufflé, hot apple pie baked as you dine or other homemade desserts. You can pair any meal with that perfect bottle of wine as we have an award-winning wine list with over 625 bottles to choose from. Please enjoy Dempsey’s Steakhouse, as you will find that we are the “best kept secret" in Tampa Bay.Continued

  • "The meal was great. Linda was very good and patient with us. She even bought a surpise at the end of the meal for my mom that was going out of town. Thank you!"

  • "My chief complaint, was that over the phone, I was informed of the $75.00 minimum. I was ok with that. When we got there, we were informed that it was $75.00 per person. The manager failed to come to a resolution. I would like to commend the waiter. His service. Thank you, Michael C. Jones"

  • "We thought the food here was good, but nothing special and quite pricey. The restaurant facility is pretty tired and dated, and the ambience would definitely benefit from an update. On a bright note, our waiter was very friendly and helpful."

  • "Excellent! Everything was excellent, the food, the service, the ambient, everything! It is THE place for that special occasion."

  • "Have dined here on several occasions, enjoy the whole product of Dempseys. However, on this occasion over 35minutes between salad and dinner while guest that sat down after us were being served and finishing was not acceptable. Waitress said at 20 minute mark our order was on way, that did not happen. I have to blame kitchen or waitress for not keeping up on order. Thought manager should have stoppped by, did not happen... Food itself when it arrived was great ,but wait ruined our evening."

  • "Really nothing special as far as steak restaurants go. It is also annoying difficult to get there. If you are coming in from outside the gated community, you must go through a gate with a security guard who will stop you and get all your information, then drive 25 mph all the way around the apartments on a poorly light street, then you are forced to use the valet parking. After that you have to walk around a large pool area with poor signage and again, poor lighting. The food was nothing exciting for how expensive it was and they were also out of one of their basic wines."

  • "Took the wife out for dinner to Dempsey's based on a friends recommendation. Was told it would be better than most high end steak restaurants in Tampa and was a little disappointed. I could tell the salad, prepared table side was a little old, getting soft around the edges (for the price, you'd expect just pulled from the ground) Meal was good, not outstanding as I was prepared to have. Way, way overpriced for what you get in return. The meal I would grade a solid "B" but not for what you pay. Stick with the Shula's, Bern restaurants etc..."

  • "luckily we were not in the mood for steaks but noticed they ranged from 36 to 60 dollars...sides not included. instead we opted for the pasta and it was very good."

  • "It had been several years since I last visited Saddlebrook Resort. While the interior of Dempsey's could use up dating [ and maybe more insulation] the fact that they had a "dated" approach to food and service was a plus in my opinion. My highlight was the table side preparation of my Caesar salad. The steaks[ we had three different cuts] were all done perfectly. Champagne was well priced as well for those interested in kicking it up a notch."

  • "My husband and I went to Dempsey's on New Year's Eve, and were extremely disappointed with our experience. The dress code was not enforced and the service we received was sub-par at best as our waiter failed to visit the table enough to meet our needs. As far as the food - my husband ordered their "special" steak (a $60 entree) which was almost raw in the center (ordered medium). My steak was also well undercooked. Upon ending our dinner, our waiter informed us that we had not met a $75 minimum threshold. We were confused as our bill totaled close to $200 already - however he told us that it was a $75 min. per person excluding drinks. We were then forced to order a dessert that we didn't want. Overall, not a good experience."

  • "My wife and I were DD for our daughter who was attending Christmas party at Saddlebrook so we decided to dine at Dempsey's for convenience. We were very pleased with our decision as the food and service were great. My wife had the 10oz filet and it was cooked as requested. I had the Chilean Sea Bass and it was delicious. We had 2 side vegetables and both were excellent. My wife finished with a chocolate soufle and not a drop was left. A great night overall and the timing was perfect to take our daughter home after her party!"

  • "Great steaks,but a little pricey, everything ala carte. Had to pour our own wine. A nice touch they did provide a free desert for my birthday!"

  • "Dempsey's is located in the lovely Saddlebrook Resort community, home of many of professional tennis' best players. Whether at the smaller venue, Dempsey's Too, or at the larger one, Denpsey's, the food is magnificent, and the service is great. The salad bar is the best I have seen anywhere. We have a number of truly great steak houses in the Tampa area, including Bern's - perennially rated one of the top 5 in the country. Truth be told, we find it more relaxing and a better experience at Dempsey's, and the food is every bit as good. The main restaurant is a bit of a walk from the valet parking drop off, but there are trams available to take you to the door."
