Went to Dempsey’s and it was GREAT as usual, the waitress was polite and prompt. the manager was also very courteous and nice when he spoke with us. This Place is VERY well known in Baton Rouge, and if you plan on going for lunch you had better get there early or be prepared to wait! This place serves up great poboys and seafood plates.. BE sure to try the gumbo (I prefer their chicken and sausage gumbo) one of the best gumbos I have had from a restaurant.
We had Boudin Balls for app and they were perfect with the homemade remoulade sauce to dip in.
I had the catfish mornay and it was also just perfect! Catfish was awesome and the sauce was FULL of shrimp and crawfish. I counted 20 big shrimp and 15 crawfish tails before I stopped counting!!.
My brother had the prime rib poboy that was on special and it was easily the best poboy I have tried from Dempsey’s ever!
We both of course had a cup of the gumbo and it was VERY good as always!! I will always love this place and will always keep coming back.
Chicken and Sausage Gumbo is always good. I always get the half and half with a different poboy each time. They are all good.
When they have the smothered chicken on special I get that and it is also always good.
Also the fried shrimp remoulade is awesome!!.
Dempsey’s is a GREAT little poboy & gumbo shack. They now have 2 locations in Baton Rouge. One on Coursey and one on Jefferson Hwy. Be sure to stop in at either one sometime. you will not be disappointed!!
