“Great food and fun setting”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

Venues Cafe's is a casual setting and offers a great menu. The Salmon is fantastic. The Chef puts his own twist to the delicious choices. The waitresses are very attentive.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

On a vacation to Carefree, my boyfriend and I went to Venues Cafe for dinner on a Wednesday night. There was a few people at the bar and no one in the restaurant. That almost turned us away but we just figured that Carefree does not have much of a nightlife on weekday nights. We are glad we gave Venues a shot. The food was wonderful and reasonably priced and the drinks were good and strong. The setting was also romantic being we were the only ones there. Our waitress was very kind and personable. Overall the food and service exceeded our expectations and we look forward to returning when we visit Carefree again.

“Cozy and eclectic place”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

Stone walls and earth tones give the place a warm feel. Artwork of different styles are displayed throughout the restaurant. The menu provides a wide selection. Entrees, sandwiches, salads, priced reasonably. Great wine selection, full bar. One small issue: It wasn't busy. Only 5-6 tables occupied. Food took longer than expected. I would go back.

“Enjoyable 2nd visit”
Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

This was our second visit to Venues and we enjoyed it again. The staff and service was very good and really nice. It's a great place to go when you don't want the over crowded popular eatery. My steak was cooked perfect and my wife's mussel and clam linguini was great. The portions are just right, with nice presentation. I recommend it if your looking for somewhere new to go.
