During this COVID-19 occurrence we will cease dining room operations.  We will operate doing phone orders (take out) service. You also may come in to order and pay.  We will run your food out to your car.  We cannot have more than 10 people in the building. Thank you for your patience during this time.

These plans are subject to change as regulations from the State of Louisiana and City of New Orleans change quite rapidly.


PLEASE NOTE: Due to health code restrictions we cannot allow any outside food to be served, including Birthday cakes. We will certainly help to make any celebration special with a dessert from our kitchen.

About Our Vision

Jack Dempsey’s Restaurant is loved by locals as a New Orleans’ family-owned eatery located on Poland Avenue in the Bywater area of New Orleans, LA.  Our family recipes have been passed down from generation to generation, including our famous macaroni and cheese  and potato salad.

Our goal is to provide our customers with the best food and service at an affordable price. Join us for lunch or dinner, because you haven’t visited New Orleans until you’ve eaten at Jack Dempsey’s!

From our family to yours…laissez les bon temps rouler!
