“WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

Six of us went to have ribs and enjoy our eveing since
our vacation was coming to an end.
We had all finished and my friend ordered desert and
before he even finshed he was asked to pay his bill
because a party of 16 was waiting for our table
We were politely asked to leave and when he
complained to the manger he got a lame I'm sorry.
Just so you are aware a party of 16 will trump a party of 6.
I have never ever experienced this--how insulting.
We will not be back!!!

“Good Food and Good Service”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

Gold Rush is consistently good - I wouldn't call it out of this world BBQ but good food and worth the money spent. Very nice and attentive servers. Definitely one of the better restaurants in Venice. The green beans are one of my favorites sides here and compliments the rich smoked flavor this place serves up.
