    Dinner there was a wonderful ending to a perfect wedding day for us. Quiet, Delicious, & staffed by thoughtful & professional individuals. Keep in mind this lovely smaller "clone" of the larger even better original "Dempsey's" (still on property), could be loud if the adjacent bar for Saddlebrook Resorts (where this is located) had a rowdy group watching sports.

    My wife and I planned an early dinner reservation for 3 p.m. at Dempsey's Too only to get there and find out it was not open. We ended up having to dine at their Tropics Restaurant after Tara (hostess/waitress) explained dinner is only served at Dempsey's Steakhouse which does not open until 6 p.m. We had a Restaurant.com gift certificate for Dempsey's Too but were told it was only good for Dempsey's Steakhouse. We were frustrated and quite disappointed with Saddlebrook Resorts for allowing these misperceptions to occur. Restaurant.com should not be able to distribute Dempsey's Too certificates. OpenTable should never have been able to make a reservation for Dempsey's Too.

    Pros: salad bar was amazing and the service was superb. Downside: the food portion was really small, the flavor was decent, and the price wasn't worth what you got. The place also smelled musty. All in all nice to do once but probably not again.

    Hadn't been here in awhile but quickly remembered why I always Consider Dempsey's at Saddlebrook a first rate experience. Food is delicious & worth the extravagance. Beautifully served by accommodating Staff. A delightful evening! Their key lime pie is one Of the best in the state.

    Dempsey's Too is the smaller of two locations for Dempsey's Steak House at Saddlebrook Resort. It is located in the main reception area. The larger one, called Dempsey's, is open during high-traffic periods, and is a bit of a walk (though there is a complimentary tram if you don't want to walk). Dempsey's Too is smaller and more intimate, and is open during quieter periods. The menus at both are the same. The service and food at both are superb. Dempsey's Too has a better view out its windows than Dempsey's, though both are pleasant. Dempsey's Too has a bit of a more intimate feel, but both are great. Tampa is fortunate to have a nationally renowned steak restaurant, Bern's - but the food at both Dempsey's is every bit as good.

    Dined at Dempsey's and Dempsey's Too on a few occasions. Usually sit in the Bordeaux room at Dempsey's Too rather than in the more casual sports/bar area where we sat for the first time this visit. The whole evening was off. We ordered champagne, and the bartender had gone home with the key to the cellar, after delay but with apology the manager provided three glasses of Korbel. Dinner then was out of sync due to the delay, did not flow smoothly. The waitress was overwhelmed with tables, and the table next to us was vocal about criticism of the food preparation. This restaurant is expensive and I usually am glad to pay the higher rates for the food and service, but the rates are inappropriate for asports bar setting,and this bad night

    Unfortunately, we did not have a good experience. The steak was overcooked and when sent back was found to be an inferior piece of meat - not what one expects from a $40 filet mignon. No effort was made to accommodate the waiting diner. The manager was kind enough to remove the steak from the bill and send over a dessert, but I would always prefer to pay for e meal and have it be as it should. Would not rush to return.....

    The posted menu was not the menu and prices used for Dempsey's Too ($$). The menu prices were more on the side of their other Restaurant Dempsey's Steak House ($$$). The Steak Diane was good but as I said they used the higher price for Dempsey's Too instead of the menu and prices used on the website which were suppose to be cheaper than the Steak House Dempsey's. They need to update their menu on the website to reflect that their prices are $$$ and not $$ since they are using the prices of their higher priced restaurant as well.

    Our Reservation was for Dempsey's Too, but it was closed. However they seated us at Dempsey's. The service, and food was outstanding. They have a very good wine list, and a grate saled table. We are planing to return soon with a group of friends.

    Tropics does not exist right now. When I called to confirm my reservation since I live in Virginia and I was visiting in Florida, we were meeting friends there and we both had to come some distance, I wanted to make sure everything was set, it was not. I was told the restaurant Tropics was now Dempsey Too. I had no reservation. They worked everything out and the steaks at Dempsey Too were great, but if I had not called and we had a later reservation we would have been out of luck, even on a Tuesday night it was crowded.

    We went on Valentine's day. It was advertised as being a casual upscale place. We got there and discovered is just a nice bar with a dining area. The people there seemed happy. It would be a great place to stop for a sandwich and beer after a round of golf, or a quick meal if you're a guest at the resort, but it is not designed for a special evening. We were planning on a night out, and walked to Dempsey's on the same property and were very happy!

    Unusual to say the least. We were the only patrons there at 7PM on a Saturaday night. It is attached to the bar at the resort, which had some customers, but it was not what we expected. Also, being part od the resort, they add 18% tip to the bill automaticaly. The food was fine and we got a lot of personal attention, but will not return for diner. May keep it in mind for lunch some time.

    This was a disaster! Saddlebrook/The Tropics phoned an hour before we were supposed to dine with them and told me that we would be seated in the cafe, adjacent to the main dining room. I asked why the call---the said just to alert me that it was going to be in a differnt room tan usual. We were the only ones seated in The Cafe and the table was a small cocktail table. I requested something adequate for 4 plates and they put two tables togethr to accommodate us. Then the menu turned out to be a snack menu combined with their large plate dinner menu----no lunch menu being served at all. Evidently they decided not to serve lunch b/c we were the only guests coming to lunch, but they were not up front about their modus operandi.

    Celebrated daughter's 50th birthday and we were both absolutely delighted with everything from our arrival to our departure. The service was excellent and food outstanding. Wonderful salad bar, great attention to us while not hovering. Did not rush us and did not serve entree until we finished our salads. Have recommended and will continue to do so to everyone. plan to return for pool side lunch as well as future dinners. A wonderful addition to our area.
