OMG - The baked-stuffed "lobsaa" was the best I ever had. A tad pricey but worth every penny. Service was excellent and atmosphere was pleasant. My date had a baked stuff shrimp dish which she thoroughly enjoyed. Sides of delmonico potatoes and snap peas delicious.

We had a table of 10 and enjoyed a good meal along with attentive service. We paid our own checks and we had the following: 1 Short Ribs, 1 Lobster Roll, 1 glass of wine, 1 coffee, and 1 Sambuca. Our bill came to $64.

The Venus is great. People from all over ma and ri know about the Venus. Best baked stuffed lobster and the best minestrone soup around the area. You can't get any better. It's been up and running for years and it never disappoints. Great staff always and the food is to die for

Beautiful setting but the food was not up to par. Overpaid for overcooked lobster, and a plain prime rib. Clam chowder was good, server was excellent.

My parents always dined and went to functions here with the Sons of Italy and they all raved about the food and huge bake stuffed lobsters. I always enjoyed the lobster salad and homemade lobster sauce my Italian mother would make ALL the extra lobster that she brought home. Curious and finding ourselves in the Swansea area, my wife and... More

Best baked stuffed lobster in the country. Even Emeril raves about this place. Prime Rib is out of this world. Pricy but worth it

Have eaten here for lunch and dinner many times over the last ten years. For a long time it was always fine and sometimes excellent for both lunch and dinner. More recently it seems to be hit or miss. Lunch used to be a good meal and a good value. Lately people have not been overly happy and their lunch... More
