Would recommend for a fun evening out - service was “ok” - 1 meal was ravioli and dinner guest raved - the calamari was very good - salad was ho hum - stuffed shrimp was poor, dry and stuffing had no taste.

Good food and excellent service. The salads are huge and there is a good choice of main dishes. Really good drinks menu as well and the servers are very attentive without being intrusive.

Stopped for an outdoor lunch after a morning at the beach. The small table outside was great for people watching. Our server was friendly and her timing was excellent. We were a party of 2 and each ordered a flatbread. (Wild mushroom and taco) Each were very tasty. The only negative comment I have is they NEED to STOP using plastic straws! PLEASE!

101 did not honor my reservation. I made reservation in Open Table at 2pm on Friday for Saturday at 730 pm. I received a phone call from the restaurant at 636pm advising me they cannot honor my Open Table reservation because I asked for an outside table. I needed outside because we were bringing our dog. She went on to tell me that during season they don’t take reservations for outside and it’s first come first serve. That of course changes my plans because waiting around with a dog is work
The fact that they wait until 54 minutes before the reservation is unprofessional and unorganized. They even reported me to Open Table for not showing up to my reservation. Really? if these are your rules you should post that on open table
I’m a local who patronizes this business year round. Now you don’t need me during season. Good luck this summer. You won’t be seeing me

Very disappointed with both the quality of our food and the service when we met our niece and her husband for brunch. The server ignored us once we told her that we needed just a little bit of time to chat before ordering our entree. Once we were able to motion her over to our table, she took our brunch order but was not very warm or welcoming. We ordered from the brunch menu and got the Denver Pie which was presented like a pizza with egg, bacon bits, sausage, etc. It arrived barely warm and looked quite unappetizing. It tasted dry and similar to cardboard crust. We do not recommend this restaurant for brunch. Perhaps their other menu has some good options, but I'm unwilling to try 101 OCEAN ever again due to the poor service, terrible food, and bland atmosphere.

My meal was not worth the price. I got 4 shrimp with crab stuffing for $35. This should have been exceptional. It was overcooked as well as the 4 aspargus spears that accompanied it. Lemon scalloped potatoes were also part of this meal. Just ok.

Beach food but really 👍 Happy hour until 7pm. We sat inside, but sitting outside is an option so you can people watch or bring your dog. Our server was very attentive and made sure we had a good experience.

I was with a group of peoole from work and two of us orded the crab cake eggs Benedict. An eggs Benedict is supposed to have a poached egg with a runny yolk. When my coworker and i received our meal neaither one of our eggs were runny, they were actually cooked through which was very disappointing because i am not a fan of cooked yolk and was expecting a runny egg like its supposed to be. Besides that the food was just okay nothing that I would rave about or go out of my way to recommend

I would recommend to a friend but they need to overlook the help. I am not sure how reserve a table comes up with the table availability but when we got there for our reservation the hostess could have cared less if we had a reservation and your app said there was only 2 times available. Well we were the only people dining at this time and before we left maybe 3 other tables were seated . Used the app the day before and the restaurant was very grateful for our reservation.

The place was bustling and we expected our waiter to be busy but basically he was non-existent. The food was very good? I had the Sea Bass and my husband had the Red Snapper. The appetizer of Asian Beef Short Ribs was very good also. I would go back for the food and hope I get a different waiter.

This was our second visit to 101 so we are repeat customers. Everything was excellent drinks, service food, quality and value. I love the 101 Cobb Prices are reasonable for the area and the scene is a little less rowdy than the area restaurants. You wont be disappointed.
