A colleague and I ate at this restaurant several times while on a business trip. The staff are friendly and attentive to your needs. The food is well priced and hearty. They offer a salad bar and all of the usual diner fare. Would recommend eating here.

The food we had was good but average. There was enough of it. Plenty to choose from on the menu and we will likely go back to try other things. Service was good up to the point we received our food, but they we didn't see our waitress again until we were done and ready for the bill and a... More

As a family we have been going to Venus for over 15 years. The wait staff are pleasant and service is fast! The 2 egg breakfast special includes the 2 eggs. Choice of bacon ham or sausage hash browns and toast or biscuits and gravy all for $3.99. Only thing I dislike is their water. I usually order a soda... More

Good food at a great price. I mean what could possibly be better than that? The wait staff is also friendly which is a plus.

We have found the service to be good at this restaurant, we've been there several times since it's a local place to get a quick meal. The food is average, not fancy.

Went here today with my wife and we both had the breakfast special. The total bill with drinks was about $13. The breakfast special is 2 eggs, a meat, fried potatoes, and briskets and gravy. The food and service are both very good

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... 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 The food and service are good, but this place is seriously outdated inside.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
