Delicious Food & Great Service

We LOVE Venus! I got married last summer at the Venus but it has always been a place my family has frequented. This last time I was there, I ordered the Lobster Ravioli. It was delicious and reasonably priced! If you are in the area and want any kind of lobster, this is the place for you!

The Venus De Milo has been a staple of the community for years. They are well known for the service they give the customers as well as their lobster specials. All the food they service is usually excellent. If you are new to the area, this is a place you must check out

Love to go to the Venus DeMilo for the half price apps from 4-9pm. Great selection expecially the Clam chowder and Minestrone soup. Two people can order a few apps including soup and walk out paying under $20 including the tip. Great for an after work quick bite to eat.

I have eaten at this restaurant and have always had a great lobster. On Sunday, my boyfriend and I went there and as I ate it I had a bite and it tasted awful, I took another bite and spit it out, I then had my boyfriend smell a piece and he said to tell the waitress. It smelled and... More

Great place to go for half price apps almost every night of the week. The chowder is the best around and for only 2.65 a bowl its also the best deal around. And don't forget about the minestrone soup !
