Dined with my son at Dempsey's before the Redskins/Ravens game, and it started off nicely when, after watching other patrons being told they had to wait 30-40 mins for a table, we were immediately ushered to ours, thanks to our reservation. Some places, you make a reservation, and if it's really busy (like Dempsey's was), you still have to wait a few mins. Not so. Our server was friendly and attentive, and didn't mind at all when we ordered a little off the menu. I got the crab cake, which was a bit too much filler but tasty enough. Old Bay Fries were good. It was standard pub fare, nothing too special, but when you've got a location as great as Dempsey's, you don't need to reinvent the wheel. It was an enjoyable experience and I'm sure I'll return!
