We went to the restaurant and it is located in a really neat outdoor type shop area of Carefree. It had an art showing the night we went. We just missed their happy hour but still decided to try their deviled eggs that have a special jam inside them that was delicious. Their menu has some very interesting takes on some standard foods and also some more traditional fare. I had the Chicken Shnitzel that I really loved and my significant other had the Penne with Vodka sauce with Chicken which I really liked the taste as well. Good portions, nice wine list, they had live music that night and the waiter was friendly with a very punny sense of humor.
The food is good, but the service was ridiculously slow. There were very few people at the restaurant, but nonetheless it took over an hour to get our food. And we rarely had the server ask if we needed refills of water, drinks, etc. I have been to this place before and was very disappointed in the service. And, although the food was good, but it used to be better. I do not think I will be going back.
Sit at the bar. The waitresses are horrible .
You won't be checked in at Venue's.
Double check your bill!
Great short ribs, nice staff, very pleasant
This restaurant on "the circle/square" in downtown Carefree is really good. It has the ambiance of an auto repair garage and a mini-sized front patio, but the food and generous portions make up for it. I had sloppy joe and it was abundant and delicious. My wife had chicken salad she praised, too. After lunch, it's convenient to window shop in the shops and galleries of Carefree. All in all we really like Venue's.
Had the short ribs which were good but a bit salty, the French onion soup was even a little saltier but otherwise tasty. Loved the eggplant caprese appetizer. Service was a bit slow and at the end I had to get somebody to get my waitress for the check.
After waiting for ten minutes the service was adequate. The Dip was terrible, dry shearded beef with about a ounce ofau jus, took two bites and left the rest.
Great food combined with great personable service. I have been here many times and I have never been disappointed.
