We haven't been here in a while and stopped in last weekend... Now we remember why it's been so long. My milk came in a very dingy dirty looking plastic cup, omelettes were looking pretty brown. We'll probably never be back but they seem to have a lot of regulars which I like in an establishment

My wife and I came here for breakfast. It's been a looong time since I've dined at Venus. The last time I was here (about 3-4 years ago), they took the fried clams off the menu and I vowed never to eat here for dinner again. That personal boycott (for dinner) still stands... no clams on the menu. Breakfast is... More

Everything on the menu is great. The fish is frsh and hot and crunchy. The batter is light and not greasy. The coney's are the best with homemade coney sauce. Wonderful! I had coney's all over the stae and these are the best. Kogells brand hotdogs and their sauce. Can't beat 'em. Yummy!!!!! The only coneys we eat.

We've gone to Venus multiple times for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. By far the best value is their breakfast. The portions are pretty huge for money, and I think they have the best pancakes in town. The lunch and dinner portions aren't quite the same value (seem to be a little smaller and a little less bang for your buck),... More

So I live right by Venus actually and it's one of our favorite restaurants that is right close. It's akin to a Mom and Pop Denny's or Big Boy. The food is excellent, might give you a coranary, but very good. The salad bar leaves something to be desired, I would actually recommend against it, but it comes with most... More
