The store is very clean and presentable and i was surprised by Kathy's friendly approach ( after reading other reviews) The fish and chips were great. We called to order quite late in the day. We'll definitely return to Venus Bay.

Called in & had lunch while exploring the area. Their meal range is large and very very tasty with a range of inside & outside seating to choose from to sit & eat.

Terrible service.. extremely rude!! The staff were lovely to the local in front of us, and the second went to service us rudely asked ‘what do you want’.. this happened not just once but Atleast 4 times we went here over our stay. Ordered some...hot chips for 2 families and rudely told ‘no you can only have $7 worth’ with no explanation! Anyone would think they didn’t want out business and money!!More

When we were there they were very busy but still got the food out quickly and it was very tasty. Such a good, well organised store with everything you can imagine.

A well stocked general store with everything we needed. There was a very good selection of wines at very reasonable prices. We did have a meal there which was delicious. Fresh and well cooked seafood.

Very disappointing considering everyone else in this area are lovely & genuine. The service was shocking. We understand that you can be busy but that’s no excuse for rudeness. We asked for no sauce on the sandwich that we ordered but got sauce. When we...questioned this it was our fault that she didn’t listen and wrote down the wrong order. Overpriced too. The majority of the menu wasn’t available until 11am, which is understandable however there is no signage stating this & the attitude given in regards to it was unnecessary. We will not be back & recommend both to go there.More

We stopped here for lunch after exploring the area. Had the best piece of whiting I have had in a long time. My son ordered a burger and he loved every bit too. Beautiful spot to stop and have a bite to eat before continuing...on our exploration of this beautiful part of SA.More

The worst piece of whiting ever. It must have been reheated in the microwave as batter was soft and water dripped out as I was eating it!! Yuk. The cake slices were dreadful and dry, I returned one because it was burnt and dry and...was given a different one which was no better. Never again, I'll stick to the cafe at the caravan park.More
