This is by far the worst place to eat! Felt like I was eating in retirement home cafeteria. The soup was out of a can. Everything was topped with lard. The food was absolutely disgusting! Worst breakfast place in Florence!

Love stopping at Venus for breakfast if we can time our trip in or out of Myrtle Beach to suit. We invariably order the Venus special (2 eggs, 2 pancakes, choice of meat and beverage) for under $9. Food was fresh and delicious.

We went for breakfast around ten am and it was not packed. Server was attentive and nice. But we waited over 30 minutes for fried eggs and grits. Sign out front says "best breakfast" however we have had better breakfasts elsewhere in town.

Stop in for a delicious breakfast or a homemade lunch - neither will disappoint. Wait staff is friendly and food is superb! Prices and portions can't be beat!

The liver and rice was off the chain. It was great. I love the cabbage and corn bread. This tasted like cornbread not sweet cake. I hate sweet cornbread.

Waffles and eggs.The best waffles big fluffy inside crispy outside. Egg were scrambled perfectly. Room for improvement with waitresses.
