  • Great place to bring the family. Free parking is a plus and easy access to the beach as well. Fishing is good and you don't need a license if your fishing off the pier. Enjoy your time.
  • The parking was good. Even with a crowd, I was able to get a good shady spot. Parking was free. The walk to the peir was not far at all. Sharkeys restaurant smelled delicious by the way... The walk on the pier was beautiful. Breathtaking views of the blue water and my husband and I even spotted DOLPHINS near the pier!!! That was very cool to see. The little shop on the pier had a very friendly employee and had cold drinks and some delicious looking ice cream bars. There were a few kiddos running around without an adult. And some kids were fishing off the pier without having precaution about where they were swinging their hooks so it was a little scary having to walk past them...other then that it was a very pleasant walk. Venice is a must visit!!!
  • Had a great time fishing with my son we caught 12 fish and fed one of the piers birds some shrimp would recommend everyone come!
  • Fun place. Easy parking and walk to pier. Convenient amenities.
  • It is great to be able to walk out into the gulf Coast and see fishes. Good place to fish and to watch sunsets
