“Bad service”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Went in for lunch and sat down ,waited for my wife.After she arrived nobody ever acknowledged I was there,so after 15 mins decided to go to Blue Daq down the stree,where we had a pleasant experience.
Also,went to this place one other time and had the Pizza,I have had better frozen pizzas than Soda Fountain of Venice.

“Trippin' back in time.....”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Wait can be long for both food & seating; but menu is large & portions adequate. Fun music; atmosphere is nostalgic. Sodas, sodas, sodas are the real focus. Just like 'back in the day' ; only a bit smaller & of course, more $$$. Two can eat for $15 {plus tip} but ONLY if you do NOT add a tempting soda to your order :)

“Fun and very kid friendly. Real soda jerk”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

My daughter had a blueberry vanilla coke, my wife had a chocolate cherry coke. I had a milkshake. We split pizza and sugar coated Italian doughnuts...that was amazing! Our waitress was as cute as could be....and greeted us as a Christmas elf...as it was Christmas week. This was a great place for lunch after a morning at the beach.

“What a great place to have a sandwitch”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We stopped by today and had lunch at the Soda Fountain of Venice, it was great. The service was fast and effecent, The restaurant was very clean, old antquties all around and the food was tasty and a large serving. Very pleasant atomsphere. Soda fountain has been there for years and it use to be an old drug store with a bar to have soda's and food. Love the old wood nice cleaned and polished in the restaurant. The restaurant is locarted in a restored area of down town old Venice. There are plenty of old shops that are darling to shop. We enjoyed just walking around and looking. We are very satisfied with Soda Fountain Venice and will return soon.
