“Nice place for lunch”
Review of Venus II

Reviewed 22 January 2018

My wife and I were going to take my mother out for lunch the other day to a Haddad's in Brant Rock which was unfortunately closed. They will reopen beginning in February. Since we were in Brant Rock we went next door to Venus 2. The recent storm doesn't seem to have affected them when we visited. The raised building probably helped.
To enter there is a choice of either stairs or a ramp with rails for those who can't use the stairs. Since our trio all have knee problems the ramp was an obvious choice. Getting seated didn't take long and we were shown to a table on a raised platform that wasn't difficult to get onto to and roomy enough for 3 adults, two of whom had rather large purses.
Menus and a bowl of popcorn were served quickly. The popcorn was a tad too salty but still good enough for snacking. The extra salt keeps the drinks flowing but for us it was iced tea and Diet Pepsi.
The menu had plenty to choose from and we choose baked scallops, fried scallops, and baked scrod. It did't take long for the order to be delivered to the table Everything was great. I didn't taste the other dishes but my fired scallops were hot and tasted great. The frying was light with no heavy grease taste. They came with sea salt fries which were lightly salted and also very good.
For the sports minded there seemed to be enough monitors to watch your favorite sports from anywhere.
We plan on going back and trying something else but may stick with the seafood since the fish market is almost next door.

This is a bar, with bar food. Zero ambience. It seemed as though there were several regulars there. I had fish and chips which were made so much better by the ketchup and tarter sauce. Big sodas.

We had six different items and no one could finish their portions they were so large. The food was also very very tasty. They were busy and we had to wait but it was well worth it.

As good as it ever was... still serving up the classics! We came back to Brant rock beach for my 35 year class reunion which was catered by the Venus II. ALL the food was great! We started off downstairs at the bar with drinks. The service was great and staff is friendly. Bathrooms were spotless! We moved up stairs and enjoyed a numerous selection of foods prepared on site! Delicious... the beach across the street gives the Venus an A+ location too! It was great to be home!

Based on my own experience visiting - This is a locals restaurant. They are not into appealing to picky tourists. Inside of the restaurant has a large square bar area with booths surrounding it. There is also a dining room, and upstairs is an outside dining deck with ocean views (across a street and over homes) and with great breezes. The menu is long. I guess they are known for their bar pizzas. One in our group ate one all by himself and enjoyed it very much. Bar pizzas are thin crust and slightly smaller than a small pizza but much larger than a personal size pizza. Two people in the group ordered sandwich platters - Turkey club and barbecue chicken and one ordered the clam strip platter. Every bit of food on every plate was eaten. Just a note: The soups are bowl sized only and are really bowl sized - a very hearty amount of soup.
The server was very attentive and friendly!
We would go again if in the area.
