It is our first time dining since they changed the restaurant to the Empire Grill. We were expecting it to be outstanding but we found the food to be a lower quality than before. The lobster poached in butter was very dry and tough, I needed to ask for more butter. In the past their lobster has always been delicious.... More

The restaurant was clean, staff attentive and friendly. Very customer oriented. A great upscale/classy place- a little pricey for the quality of the food I received, but the whole experience made the price worth while. The manager was on the floor greeting guests and inquiring about their meals and service. The bartender was very attentive and professional. Only reason I... More

For a former stomping ground of chef Emeril (Bam!), I was expecting a higher caliber of food; however, this is a great facility with several rooms for accommodating large groups. I attended a celebration with 90 guests and the portions of food were very generous. Two inch thick prime rib (delicious); however, the potatoes were instant not real mashed potatoes.... More

Thank you for your review. We always like to hear from our guests; it helps us improve. I'm glad you enjoyed the big portions, and that they were "delicious" and "very good".

Venus is well known for its lobsters, however, I decided to experiment with a totally different taste, their Shrimp Mozambique. What a treat! Large shrimp in a succulent, savory sauce. Spicey without being overpowering, having the right blend of ingredients for a highly satisfying dish. Anxious to try other entrées on my next visit.

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.

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
