We have eaten here every time that we are in Excelsior Springs. Very nice family owned restaurant. The food is consistently good, atmosphere is clean and pleasant and the prices are good. Can't go wrong!

Oh man, I literally ate so much I thought I might die. Everything was incredible. We started with the smoked chicken dip, and it was insane. Kind of spicy, but I couldn't stop eating. Then I had a caeser salad, and it was pretty good. For our main, my partner had a KC Strip steak, loaded mashed potatoes, and broccoli.... More

We like this little restaurant on the main drag downtown because it is in a vintage building and has the atmosphere of coziness and warmth. The staff is always friendly and the food quite good. Good soups, salads, and sandwiches are what we look for but there is much more on the menu.

If your like us..Not from Excelsior. This is well worth the drive. The owners of Ventana always go all out to make sure everyone is welcomed. We have eaten here for several years and have never been disappointed.

I was here for business there were 18 of us that came to the restaurant all at once. They were able to handle us with no problem. The food was hot and the steak was great.

Had a luncheon meet & eat with local Chamber members. A very casual gathering but we had great service & excellent food! So many lunch options under $10. The staff is always friendly & eager to please. This place is definitely a town favorite!

We ate dinner here for our 10 year anniversary. Amazing food, great service and warm atmosphere. Downtown Excelsior Springs had much more to offer than we expected.

Stopped here for dessert and it was homemade and treated fantastic. Came back for dinner the next night and took cheesecake back to the hotel for later as food was good and filling.
