Absolutely love this place, so much history and culture. The inside is absolutely beautiful. I love the exposed brick . I also think it's kind of neat that it is supposed to be haunted although I have not met the ghost yet . I normally sit in the bar area. The live music is fantastic. I normally order off the...

We have dined many times here and are never disappointed. Our servers have been engaging, informative and so nice! The food is great and the atmosphere is so beautiful. Take time to explore the whole building. It's so nice to have someone appreciate the history of the area.

The service is awesome the food is awesome. This is the most interesting atmosphere in town. They have a great beer and Liquor selections. There is usually live music Thursday and Friday nights. Patrick is a great host and always takes great care of us. He even shares his experimental drinks with us. They are always great.

My Dad and brother started this Wed night ritual where we would go have a couple beers and chat about our week; what's going on in our lives, politics, religion, TV shows, movies, space, etc. We started out at Dempseys because they had pint specials on Wed night. They started having live music on Wed nights, which was great, but... More

This used to be a place to go when I came to town. Now this Patrick guy is so rude and not a person to have in your public eye. The service is horrible, food was cold, and there was no compensation for it. Never again will I waste my money here

We learned from Dan that locals don't even know this is in their town which is a shame. What a beautiful old building with so much to offer...the food here is wonderfully prepared and the staff are very friendly. From Dan to Elisha, and Beth to Robin, you will want to take the time to visit the Goss Opera House... More

My husband and I had our Valentines Day dinner there last night. The food was great and the service was exceptional. They also had live music during, and the girl playing, Mandy Shay, was just phenomenal. Will definitely dine here again. Perfect night of dining and entertainment.
