Anika guided us through a memorable dinner with great wine choice. Worth the stop, and my 87 year old mother-in-law had a fine birthday.

My husband had one of the specials...Soft shelled Crab, recommended by the server, and I had the 4 oz Filet. I rarely order filet because they are usually too big, so I... More

The four of us stopped in for a late lunch and enjoyed a fabulous meal. The wine selection was very good and the prices are even better! My salmon with spinach risotto was delicious and the perfect portion size for lunch! My husband had the steak frites which he loved. The atmosphere is sleek and modern. The service was attentive...

I found this place thru OpenTable. The service was terrific, I ordered the Filet and it was melt in your mouth. Literally just moved into town. We'll be regulars here!

Went with relatives because Mom wanted "Nebraska steak". Lovely restaurant, great reception, awesome service. Got a reservation on short notice / Friday night; had a warm welcome from hostesses & waitress Chelsea. Salads were great: caesar, wedge, especially loved the unique presentation of the house salad with the cucumber wrap, & orange dressing (can't remember name, not French). Bread was... More

Had a nice lunch at the Venue for under $10. I had a "half" salad which was delicious (but already made previously as it got to the table in less than 10 minutes.) We had good service and was seated promptly without a reservation. I had to ask for bread which is complimentary, but they do not put it on... More

We visit The Venue more than a couple times a month for a night away from the business. I can't say enough about the staff in the lounge! I feel like we dine with family every time. As for the kitchen, the chief is very knowledgeable in his food prep, and his staff is 2nd to none! The atmosphere is... More
