The food was very average. The atmosphere is fantastic (sarcasm) if you are into 60's and 70's. Literally, nothing in the building has been updated since the late 60's or early 70's and maybe older. It is very run down. The wait staff is average....More

You would not know it from the outside. However, the food in this establishment is very good. It appears to be a favorite place for many of its customers. Will look forward to visiting again soon.

I would have never picked The Venice but I'm glad I came and will be back again. This is a yester year kind of local favorite. In the hay day 20 years ago kind of place. First off, don't judge a book by its cover....More

This was a fluke and best decision ever. Kid free due to spring break, the husband and I wandered in to The Venice. We were greeted with stunned stares, am presuming this is a 'regulars joint' and promptly seated in the dining room where the...More
