We enjoyed our lunch here. Husband had fish & chips that was VERY good. I had fish tacos. They were ok.. but I have had better. I wish I would have ordered the Fish and Chips because that was a really great meal. Husband also had clam chowder that he enjoyed. We would definitely return. Not... read more

Thirteen of us, hungry after a Jazz Concert in Venice, arrived at Robbi's with no reservation. Actually they wouldn't take a reservation and who can blame them when the place is so busy? We were seated amazingly quickly at one put-together table. Our waitress was totally fine with our number and kept all our tabs straight. Hubby had fish and... More

Found this treasure on trip advisor. Oh my, what fantastic food! There were 5 in our party, each with a different entree. All were so great! I can't wait to go back!

decided to try this Resturant from the suggestions from trip advisor, the reviews were correct. Nice little gem in Venice! Ate at the bar with great service, hade the seafood gumbo which was great. I will definitely return and recommend this Resturant to others, they have nightly seafood specials!

We were looking for some place not far from our motel. My wife found this on a listing of local restaurants. It's in a strip mall, a bit away from some of the other restaurants. It appears to be a more local restaurant/bar. It was full when we were there at 8 p.m., but the wait wasn't too long. Lots... More

We arrived here with a large group and no reservation on a weeknight and the place was full. However, after a short wait the owner figured out how to seat us comfortably and we had a great time. Food was good. I had a terrific blackend catfish that was the best I ever had. They cut down on the spice... More

A busy, friendly, local haunt with a loyal clientele. Open kitchen. Good, simple food at good prices. Maybe the best fish and chips in Venice. Also offer takeout.

Stopped by for early dinner and it was packed! Fish tacos were excellent and my husbands meal was also very good. Service was pretty good for how busy it was and our waitress was very personable. My only concern was that it was so hot in the front of the restaurant that I turned a fan so it blew directly... More
