Had dinner with family on Sunday and the lobster casserole was excellent. DIL had the sole and son had the prime rib and we were all pleased thoroughly with our meals.

Thank you. We try very hard to satisfy all our guests. We tend to hear it loudly when we falter; we truly appreciate when a satisfied customer also shares his experience. Thanks again. More

We came here for a buffet style dinner for about 150 people. The room was nice, perhaps a bit dated. There was a large selection of food and desserts, all were good. The baked scrod was the best and recommended. Overall, it's a good place for a large banquet.

Went to the Venus de Milo for the Easter buffet and was extremely disappointed and surprised with the quality of both the food and service. Check in and seating was a disorganized, chaotic mess. Mushy pasta, overcooked chicken, fish, and vegetables, greasy French fries and chicken fingers to mention a few. I had to pick up several dishes in order... More

We served 3,000 guests on Easter. Though seating can be a bit chaotic when trying to seat over 1,000 people at once, we manage year over year to get everyone to their seat. Our buffets, as you can expect are continually turned and refilled. Management visits just about every table. Complaints are very minimal. Compliments abound. We sell out year... More

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. We had an appetizer and settled in for the 3-31/2 lb. lobster each. Knowing I wasn't going to finish all my meal, I brought the remaining lobster home to enjoy it the next day. It was very good as usual.

Hi spent another very enjoyable nite at the Venus...they've come up with a new menu. Same old favorites with some new additions. They're serving great salads with entrees again-which I love. Our waitress Flo was helpful when I asked about menu items as well as wine suggestions. We were greeted by Norma and Sean as we came in and brought... More
