This is a diner well known to local residents and those who work in businesses in the area. That latter mostly make due with carry out sandwich & salad orders, as the locals (predominately seniors) who dine there at lunch time don't turn over the tables in a time to allow the working crowd enough time to sit down to...

This is a nice little diner type restaurant with good food and good prices. It has a nice outside patio, covered with roll up windows for weather, heaters for cooler weather, fans for the heat, good service. Tonight hubby & I enjoyed a seafood special, broiled cod, shrimp, scallops, potato, soup (or salad),veggie, and wonderful rolls...$10.99

We had the Greek salad, the chef's salad, and the turkey pita. It was all okay and reasonably priced, but nothing unusual or exceptionally tasty. The dressings were not as good as many other places. It's a small restaurant with waitresses constantly 'in the way' or bumping into chairs. However, the wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. We would... More

The service is super all wait staff work together as a team. Coffee cup is never empty. Crepe with strawberries are delicious and tender. Home fries, eggs , etc are always very good and consistent. The place gets busy but a line moves very quick so wait is short.

Venus is always crowded and a huge neighborhood favorite - with good reason. The menu is huge, and there's always a good list of daily specials too. And everything is good; more homemade food than you can eat at very reasonable prices. Nothing fancy about the place (which is great!) but staffed with the friendliest people imaginable. When your waitress... More

I have been eating here for many years and I eat here at least once a week. Great atmosphere for a casual ladies luncheon. The breakfast is amazing, yummy french toast, crepes, and traditional eggs and potatoes. Prices are very reasonable....the clientele is mostly sand key and belleair residents. The staff is great, the owners are wonderful and they run... More

Great food, great selection, great staff! Largo has a great restaurant right in its back yard. Large daily special menu each day. Large portions and high quality food. Watched as regulars entered the restaurant, they were called by name and treated as family. Would high recommend a trip to Venus! We will be back

Simple diner. Massive menu. In a dozen times never been disappointed. Regulars eat there daily. Great prices. Burgers better then most $13 "gourmet" burgers. Great Gyros. Great breakfast. Great everything. Don't look for trendy people, lots of space, Martha Stewart décor, alcohol, wait staff of grad students, or the spandex crowd from nearby Belleair and The Bluffs. It's ethnic home... More

We have been coming here for years and it is always consistently good. All your favorite diner food with a supplement of Greek choices (stuffed grape leaves, hummus, etc). We love it for breakfast- great pancakes, omlettes (regular & egg white versions), egg platters, crepes and more. The restaurant is always clean and the service is always friendly & attentive....

They have good homemade family style food . The prices are reasonable & portions are big . The service is O.K. but sometimes they seem to try to rush you out the door. They bring the food before salads are done & desert before dinner is eaten . Overall good .
