Thoroughly enjoyed our meals at the Venus! There were three of us in our party, and all of us had baked stuffed lobsters. Well worth the trip!

Nice atmosphere we were seated as soon as we arrived, the wait staff was attentive and the food was very good, my husband ordered the lobster casserole and loved it! It was worth the trip over from Newport, RI.
