I have eaten dinner at both Venice locations and found the food excellent. Their fish, whether haddock, pollock, salmon, etc. is very fresh and cooked with care. Their soup is sensational - well seasoned and full of chuncks of fresh fish. The menu offers comfort...More

CRFC serves incredible food. The raves on the cedar plank salmon are justified. The Saturday blackened redfish special was excellent. The New Orleans chips and cold shrimp apps were delicious as were the other two entrees we had. The key lime brulee was good but...More
