Fair is is giving Venus Coney Island the benefit of the doubt. When I grew up here in Flint we used to go here all the time! Had great atmosphere and food! But, we went there last night for the first time in several years because I moved out of state and thought we would catch a good supper. When we walked in, the place looked like I walked back in the past. The place was kinda dark and dingy. We are handicapped and hardly anywhere we could sit that was not a booth. I cannot sit in one because of my handicap. The menu is good. Ordered something to eat, but everything you expect to be on the item you order is included. For exampke, a cheese burger the cheeses are extra! Most if not all of the other Coney's in the Flint area, cheese is included on the Cheese burger and offer a discounted price if you order the deluxe that includes fries. The hamburger was way over cooked and somewhat burnt on one side. Ordered the salad bar with my meal, which was scimoy and hardly anything on it. Most of the items were practically out. It was NOT worth the $3 I had to pay for it! My wife ordered the Fish. It was under cooked. But I have one piece of advice for the cooks, don't put a weight on the burgers when you cook them! It dries out the meat and burns one side. I am a retired chef and started out cooking in a Coney Island. The prices were a bit high, and with all the money you chsrge, maybe take some of that and update your restaurant! I realize I am being kinda tough with this review. But I don't want to see you having to close because of customers looking for a more updated place that is clean and bright. One more thing, the wait staff needs to be more cheerful and friendly. Monica was our server and was a bit cold.
