“Bring Back Carney's”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Prior to being renamed Brew House Pub, this place was known as Carney's.... It's the same owner but the fun has been taken out of going to Carney's. There was always very good entertainment there, and the place generally was very busy. Brew House is a complete make-over of the former restaurant and is really nicely done,m it's modern and classy inside. The menu has changed totally. We ate outside on a nice sunny day and ordered Burgers. After the food came out to the table, we noticed that although we had ordered medium well, they were cooked till they became hockey pucks. They never got a second change to improve their rating, probably won't get a chance in the future either. Too bad because it's a really classy place.

“Food and service was much better than reviews”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

We had a nice leisurely lunch at the Brewhouse. He had a hamburger and I had a lobster-salad wrap. The lobster salad was very good, not goopy or mayonnaise filled, with lots of visible pieces of lobster throughout. The fries were really good, too. We were nervous after sitting down to order then reading the trip advisor reviews, but they weren't warranted, based on our experience.

“Darling hostess who went above and beyond”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

After a fabulous day at the beach we took a walk down Venice ave looking for a casual place to eat. We were greeted by a beautiful pregnant young lady who sat us outside. She was so pleasant and sweet making sure we had our drinks and menus. Being new to the area we enjoyed our food and people watching. We loved the food and even our picky son enjoyed his dinner. Service was great and the sweet hostess checked on us to make sure we had everything we needed. Looking forward to going back!!

“Venice Burgers”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Service was good, selection of Burgers were very good. They do have around 12+ beers on tap, the staff was friendly and timely. Food came out fast and hot. I had the Hawaiian burger (great) my wife had the hot dog which was also very good. Onion rings very good. Price, you get what you pay for.

“bad bad bad......”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Note that this place has TWO tripadisor listings so check out both. This one and the other is BREWHOUSE (one word).

Service is slow, food is horrible. Fries tasted like cooked in month old oil. Ribs were chewy and tastelss. French onion soup too salty. French Dip sandwich meat was dry yet the roll was soggy.

Serivce was horrible. Took us 55 minutes from the time were were sat to get our food which is crazy. others also complained around us and were told "the kitchen is slow because they make everything from scratch". Doubt that....how about you don't have the staff to run the place efficiently?

Don't go here. Many other local places to try and enjoy more than this place.
