This place used to have decent food served in a timely manner. "Used to" is the words to follow. We had 4 of us come in for breakfast this morning. The place was not crowded at all. It seems like the waitress had more than she could handle although it wasn't because of lack of effort. We had 2 tables... More

Service was good and breakfast of omelet and potatoes was good. Returned next morning around 8:30 am and place was busy. Looking around the place was full and half... More

We stopped at Venus after a fun time at the Eastern Carolina Fair about 11pm. Service was great and the food delicious. I had cheesy grits, bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs with cheese toast and coffee. Everything was delicious, especially the grits! Another great meal at Venus.

Wow! This place is fantastic. I love diners, and this one has enough charm. But the prices are amazingly low, and the food is brilliant! The grits were absolutely smashing. All of the food was good. I can't wait to go back and try the pancakes. I love this place.

Underestimated from exterior appearance since established in 1977, Venus is a Florence, SC staple and hands down The Best Breakfast in town, and the entire Pee-Dee Area. Inside the place is clean,warm red and chrome decor,reassuring of better years in our world gone by. Wait staff is friendly and treats everyone one like family or a regular,even if you're a... More

My friend & I stopped in one night. We have always enjoyed the food, but, this particular night we were served dinner rolls with a large area of blue mold on it. The waitress was very upset when she saw the molded bread....she took it on the saucer to the manager who was cooking & all he said was "OOPS"...just... More

I was satisfied with the meal and service, but it took seemingly forever to get a chicken salad cold plate for me, soup and sandwich for my mother. It was easily 30 minutes to get our food. Wasn't busy - around 5 parties there.

Thank urbanrev
