During baseball season, Dempsey’s Brew Pub at Camden Yards is always packed so I haven’t had a chance to eat there yet. Fortunately, thanks to City Dining Cards I was able to make it a point to get to Dempsey’s because I had a card for it.
In the offseason, I suspect Dempsey’s gets minimal traffic because the place was empty on a Friday evening. My friend and I were seated right away. After glancing over the menu, my friend decided to order Wings with Dempsey’s BBQ Sauce. The wings were super saucy but my friend didn’t love them. She preferred the wings at No Idea significantly more, that sauce had more flavor.
For my meal, I decided to try one of the burgers because they had a few interesting looking options on the menu. The one that stood out the most was the Double Bacon Egg and Cheeseburger. The picture really doesn’t do this burger any justice. It was two thin burger patties, a fried egg, bacon and chipotle sauce. I loved the chipotle sauce, but I felt that the burger would have been better if it was one juicy patty as opposed to two thin patties. But the flavors were really great in this burger.
My burger came with a side of chips that I substituted for Old Bay Fries with a side of white cheddar sauce. The fries were nothing outstanding, but a nice side for my burger.
Normally, I don’t order dessert. But my friend spotted the Berger Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich Duo and we couldn’t resist. This dessert came with two scoops of ice cream, each sandwiched between a berger cookie. I don’t know what else to say about this awesome creation. It was the perfect way to end the meal.
While we didn’t love everything we ordered at Dempsey’s, the dessert was awesome and I’d return for just that.
