“This is like a neighborhood Sports Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

If your looking for a neighborhood sports bar type drinking establishment, then this is it. Small, with sufficient TV's. Only Beer and Wine served here, with reasonable prices. small outside balcony seating with two TV's. Smoking is allowed. On Football Sundays, you get a good crowd of diehard football fans. Nothing fancy here, but that's ok.

“Cold beer; great view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

OVP is a no frills place to get a cold beer. Good selection of drafts. Cool place to watch a football game, or just chill with friends. The second-floor, outdoors balcony makes it special. Always take our beer loving out of town friends there.

“Love the view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I enjoy sitting at the pub and people watching (Venice Ave) below us. Today, we sat in the sun enjoying our beer and wine. Our only complaint, we need a small snack with our drinks. Even self-serve popcorn would be great. Great place for a drink and view.

“Not for non-smokers”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Pabell advised that smoking was permited on the outside patio. We walked in the second floor Old Venice Pub and was met with an over-whelming odor of cigarette smoke. We walked out and went to the vacant balcony area. Looking in, we saw; not only patrons smoking on the inside, but the bartender had a cigarette hanging out his mouth while pouring a Guinness! I like my Guinness smoking, but not that way!!

“Great Pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

I can't believe this is the first review on this place. Second floor tavern,served by elevator or stairs, overlooks downtown Venice. Beer and wine only. Smoking on outside deck. Hello Richie. Cape Codders headed your way soon. Set them up.
