One of the nicer places to go up in Carefree. May have an identity crisis though! Charges for fine dining and it is a little above mid range. Don't get me wrong ... the food was enjoyable but we were surprised at the cost. Staff...More

Located in the arts square, Venues is a good choice for better casual dining. We were there for lunch on a Tuesday, and customers were sparse. Food, though, was very good indeed. The organic turkey burger ws huge, with excellent onion rings, and the taco...More

Venues is a nice restaurant to eat at when we have meetings. The food is good. It is not spectacular. Nothing off the menu really stands off the menu, but you can always count on having a good meal here and good service. It is...More

Im so sorry you didnt enjoy your salad. there is nothing worse than overcoomed chicken...we always cook the chicken fresh and I'm sorry it was over done. The taco salad is usually a favorite. I apologize for your experience.

Tried it for lunch twice. Typical Carefree snobbish and overpriced eatery. Food was very adequate, but like everything else in Carefree, overpriced.

We met friends here, who said they really liked Venues. I'm not certain why, because the food was mediocre, the server knew our friends, since they were regulars and spent a lot of time talking with them, and paid little attention to us, the newbies....More

We have eaten lunch there 3 times. We're 3 for 3. Had a great sloppy joe, great chicken salad, great French fries, and will definitely return. Their patio is small and the dining room dark are the only negatives I can come up with. Take...More
