I recall going to Venus for special occasions (not counting weddings and other group functions) and always enjoying the soup to nuts treatment even though the dining room then had as much ambiance as a cafeteria. Now, the Empire Grille is a nicely appointed dining room but I feel something has been lost. We've been several times in the past... More

Our friends invited us for dinner to this restaurant. They visited this place a few times before and loved it very much. They would like us to try it. Unfortunately this time it didn’t meet their expectations and was not special for us. It was 4 of us. Dinner started with focaccia and olive oil that was a nice touch.... More

Friday night, seeing great friends after 9 months - not rushed, waitress very attentive & could answer all questions. Diverse eaters. Special needs for medical condition- no problem! Those fried sea scallops were devoured quickly. I was -'What is poached butter lobster?' = lobster sauté. Not really, this is lobster tails, not drowned in butter = better than lobster sauté....

A lady friend and I went to dinner before the theatre and were so pleased. This visit was far above the average meal at the Venus. Our waiter (Zack?) was a love. He catered to us and made our time there absolutely divine. We had N.E. Clam chowder, salads, and the fishermans platter which was so large, we split it.... More

This looks more like a banquet hall building. But the restaurant within served good food at a reasonable price on a Wednesday. I was dining by myself around 5 and did not feel out of place. Would return again.

Recently held a small reception in the "public dining room" after a family funeral. Had not been here in approximately 2 years. We had a party of 6 and only 1 enjoyed his food (one would think the prime rib and lobster would be acceptable for the price!) Two had beef tips and found them to be mediocre, two had... More

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.
