The ribs we ordered were nice, no question about that. Portion wasn't very big though. The venue is very dark and a bit filthy, not very nice place for eating in. Compared to what you get for your money it seems to be quite pricy...More

I had the beef ribs. But the pulled pork seemed to be a big hit. They have all kinds of stuff. It has a hollywood/country atmosphere lots of wood big wooden round tables. Service was good but not great, laid back. Lots of craft beers.

Anytime I am in the Los Angeles area I always want to go eat at Baby Blues...whether in Venice or W. Hollywood. They have great BBQ...but their corn on the cob is the best around. The entire meal was great. We had an early dinner.

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it

Absolutely good for children. I don't think there is much on the menu specifically for kids. For babies, sure it is better than many restaurants but I am not sure if they have baby seats and or chairs.
