The Shamrock Cafe has a cozy neighborhood restaurant feel. The low key strip mall setting might make it easy to overlook but it is worth trying. The food is good and probably would be termed comfort food by many. The corn chowder, the soup of the day, was rich and creamy. The hamburger is worth returning for. The service was fine and it was interesting to note the high percentage of customers greeted by name as they entered.

Our first lunch there today told us we'll have to make a return. I had a meatloaf sandwich and corn chowder. While not health food, it was great comfort food on this rainy day. My husband had the cheese steak and he was happy with it. We got it all to-go, so can't comment on service or ambiance.

Not a fancy place, but great food and great service. We visit Venice each year, and always go to the Shamrock for breakfast.

The Venice crowd loves Sunday breakfast out. While very busy, we were seated fairly quickly. The waitress promptly served a much-need large mug of coffee. The specials were tempting, but I stuck to the menu and enjoyed sugared whole pecans in my pancake for another 50 cents! Everything is cooked from scratch and the waitress proudly shared a take-home menu and a dissertation about the dinner specials each night. We'll need to try one of those or call ahead to find out what the fresh fish of the day will be. The one complaint I might have is the sinking benches of the booths. I guess that helps with the turnover!
