If you are here because you want good Italian food you are in the wrong place. But if you like American food that's quite good. The atmosphere is very nice, people very friendly and portions are huge (very " American").

The service was outstanding and loved how the staff all communicate with my 1 year old grandson. The food was awesome. Especially the homemade cheese bread.

We dine at the Venetian every time we attend a Bag-n-Baggage performance. We love the burgers and the steaks. The are always hot juicy and delicious. Their chocolate cake is so good that you have to order it a the beginning of dinner to insure getting some for dessert.

Since summertime in July for my birthday their menu changed and they didn't offer what 2 of our group wanted. They also ran out of a menu item even though our dinner time was early 7pm. Pasta entrees were fine others ordered. Most people come to dine here for theatre ambience and atmosphere which is very good. I hope they... More

We have been here several times for, not only food, but for my daughter's dance recital and music and magic acts. They have an auditorium that used to be the downtown movie theater. A nicely kept facility with a wine and beer selection thay would satisfy many thirsts.

We took friends out for dinner and the service was so bad we were embarrassed. We sat for 20 minutes before being greeted by our server. This is inspite of the fact that she walked by our table numerous times before stopping. We've eaten here many times but this will be the last as this wasn't the first time this... More

One of the best lasagna dinners I've had. Beautiful fall evening with the door open which gave the restaurant and very urban feel. We shared the artichoke and bleu cheese dip which was excellent!. Well worth the visit.

A friend and I went to Science Pub Monday at the Venetian. We could choose between hamburgers and pizzas to eat during OMSI's presentation. We chose the blue cheese burger and the greek pizza. The burger was OK, but the greek pizza was great! Crisp crust piled high with feta, spinach, olives, etc. I'll be having it again during the... More
