Coney Island Dogs are AWESOME!

I was brought here by my boyfriend so he could share with me what was a childhood favorite of his. He ordered me a Coney Dog and I was HOOKED! So very delicious! We were heading further North on our trip, but on the way back through I insisted he stop at Venus again. This time we got the dogs... read more

Venus has been serving good meals for years. Coney islands, fish, breakfast, any thing you want. A salad bar is available for lunch and dinner. The food and service are good, but this place is seriously outdated inside. It's typical of what you see in many Flint Coney Island restaurants: a loyal following, serving decent food, but never making improvements... More

When I go eat at a family restaurant I don't expect the food to be anything out of the ordinary. Rather I expect good services and ok food and reasonable pricing. Venus certainly delivered on all 3. The staff were fantastic and portion size is good (can't finish) and the food was average, on par with another family restaurant that... More

We eat here at least once a week. We have been going here for about 20 years so we have gotten to know most of the staff. Britney or Amber are usually there to take care of us. We normally request them if they are available. You can sit where ever you want and they can still wait on you.... More

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.
