Reviews for The Venue

First time visiting. Music upstairs blew me out of the water. Service was friendly. Food was great, waiter brought me two sauces as requested. Want to hear music that will have you leaving in a good mood, optimistic in the days ahead? Come here. Gonna make a stop here every time I visit Sarasota.

Glad to see The Venue open on the Circle. Great happy hour with yummy drinks and appetizers 1/2 price. Didn't realize there is a Club upstairs, will certainly be back for that - Thursday is Jazz and later Ladies night. Staff and owner(s) very friendly making sure everyone is taken care of.

Burgers look good but they should come with fries, you shouldn't have to pay almost $4 extra for fries, so a burger with fries is almost $20, it better be good. Also one of the reviews says they've been coming to the venue for the last 10 years! NO you havent it opened in May 2019
