121 Restaurant and Bar - Oxford
Patrons can often view small jets taking off and landing as the large open space faces Oxford airport’s runway and taxi-ways. The restaurant’s modern ”airport themed” décor contrasted against its “American favorites” cuisine, will have the most reserved diner soaring to new heights.
Dinner: Sunday, Tuesday - Thursday: 4:00pm - 9:00pm, Friday - Saturday: 4:00pm - 10:00pm
We went here for father's day. I had been once before. If you reserve in advance, it is worth it just to watch the planes take off. I asked for a window seat on openttable and got it! My kids loved the planes. The menu is very good and offeres lots of options and the place is clean. Service was friendly but very very slow, especially for the initial drink order. My cocktail (godfather) was very good although I wish they used real cherries. The appetizer was small and not priced accordingly. We had calamari and it was unseasoned. My husband had a burger that was overcooked despite his order. My kids macaroni was dry and bland. My lobster roll was ok but lacked butter. I dont' think there was any on it at all. The potatoe soup was ok but bland. Fruit bowl was all melon. So basically it is a cool place to go but the food is very lacking. I heard other tables complaining too about the food being bland. I went about 7 months ago and had a burger that was cooked better but service was also slow.
Love 121, however, I finally had something disappointing...the calimari. Didn't like the coating and despite us going at noon, they tasted like they were fried in "yesterday's" oil. Everything else was great, as usual.
As a server there are certain things that just must be done
...clear empty glasses when you drop new drinks....such an annoying thing to me. Throughout the night our server and buser walked by our table and ignored empty drinks and dirty utensils I kept stacking at the end of the table. Other staff walked by looking ip and not at tables to see if all was clear. If i had any part of training or managing...tjis wouldn't have happened....shame because its a great spot. Not so sure we will go back.
Great food, drink, and atmosphere!!! Seeing the planes land as you dine is such a fun experience!! Highly recommend the Half Mile burger, the lobster roll, and the fun cocktails!! A gem in Oxford!!!
I have been to 121 many times and has never let me down as far as the food or the service. This was my first time reserving a table through open table; I had put a note in the note section "prefer a table on the deck" and the hostess noted that they do not take reservations on the deck. We were able to get a table on the deck as a couple was leaving but the deck is very busy on a nice day/night as people like myself like to watch the planes take off and land. As a side note, the plane activity generally isn't heavy nor loud.
We had flown in from SCH, IFR, cruising today @7000msl with the 85 PA28 B/G Dakota
A bit bumpy though, Happy to arrive at OXC restaurant and enjoyed a great lunch.
Would highly recommend this destination to other pilots for there $200 dollar hamburgers,
Great views of the cost and Long Island from the air.
Love this hometown restaurant!
Always enjoy eating at 121! The fresh meat lobster roll with melted butter, served with seasoned fries and cole slaw, is delicious! An added bonus would be the possibility of planes taking off and landing! A great place for either lunch or dinner.
This is still my go to place to meet friends for lunch or dinner and/or an adult beverage. I decided to substitute the Brussels sprouts w/ truffle oil for my usual truffle fries. When they came, they didn't seem to be up to 121's usual excellence and the server noticed I hadn't eaten them and asked if I didn't like them. I hated to say it but I think they could have cooked longer. Well, with the check, she brought me a container of the Brussels sprouts, now thoroughly roasted and seasoned with the flavor of truffle oil, which I LOVE!!!! Wow! Excuse the pun but, this place reaches new highs every time I try something new. (It's at an airport, for those who haven't had the pleasure of eating there yet. ) I give this restaurant 5 stars, without reservation, and my personal rating measurement is 5 Forks!
Grandson’s birthday dinner.
A great place to meet friends and have drinks and dinner. Staff is very friendly and gives excellent service. Just wish they has specials during the week, not just on the weekends.
Great atmosphere. Our waiter was very good and the food was quite good. We will surely be back!
This is a great place to have dinner, the staff was great and for food was good. I did find an hair in my meal but the server took care of it like a pro... I would go back...
Probably should have gone to bar area for date night
It was Valentine's Day and the service was pleasant but the delivery from the kitchen was a problem. There were five of us and we all received our dinners up to 5 minutes apart. The food was good, we had the bolognaise, mac and cheese, salmon and another pasta. We all ordered desert but the brownie Sunday didn't come as ordered. Fun restaurant especially for kids in daylight when the planes take off and land.
One of our favorite places...we are never disappointed. Quality of food is fantastic and fresh?
Too expensive and small portions. Everything is a la carte. No salad or soup with dinner entree, have to pay separately for each. Not impressed.
I’ve never been disappointed!
Great food (bacon wrapped meatloaf, good soups, excellent burgers) all with a cool atmosphere.
Great lobster roll and fries, with an interesting view, watching the planes arrive and depart. Something different to do.
Hambuger was overcooked. Lousy waitress. Ignored our table. A huge disappointment. Danielle was our server and took forever to bring ketchup even though we ordered Fry's . Never asked how food was so l was unable to let her know that my burger was overcooked.Dropped off ketchup and we didnt see her again until she wanted to give us the bill even though I requested more hot water for my tea. We drove almost an hour to try the place after seeing it on the television. We love driving to new locale's for good food.This was not worth it
Dissapointed that on open table I explained it was my wife's birthday that was completely ignored during our visit. I asked the hostess when leaving if they recognize open table requests such as a birthday celebrations, and they said they do but nothing was noted during our dinner and she did not ask us what happened
Service was fast, the food was great, overall experience was incredible.
I had the cheese steak sandwich. It was, without a doubt, the best steak sandwich I have ever had.
Food and server were GREAT but the food took a long time to come from the kitchen.
Had a great gluten free anniversary dinner. Food was delicious! Worth the 35 minute drive. Will go again with the kids during the day so they can watch the planes!
Food was hot and tasted fresh. Good, quick service.
I have brought friends and family 3 times with the past 3 weeks. A great place to relax and enjoy your friends and family while eating great foods.
It was very busy that evening and the service reflected that.
However, the staff were polite and professional and did not let the back up in the kitchen or bar effect them.
I will continue to recommend 121 and look forward to returning there myself.
Love the food, but service is slow. No bread was brought to our table. No specials given. We ordered a main course and it took forever. Used to be better than that.
A great get together spot whether being with family and friends. Great portions and attentive staff!
We had an excellent experience here for my mom's 80th birthday. The food was excellent and so was the service. Can't wait to return!
A great restaurant to gather with either friends or family for either lunch or dinner. Attentive staff that makes helpful suggestions concerning foods and drinks. Great ambience as you can watch small planes land and take-off as you dine!
We dined al fresco on the deck and enjoyed a great sunset. The food and service was very good.
Nice place, good food.
Have been to 121 many times and once again it didn't disappoint. The food and service were very good somewhat noisy, as compared to my other visits. Still would recommend without concern. Nice distraction of planes landing ata local airport
121 is always fantastic! Great food and service for a special occasion!
We took our NH son and grandsons, ages 14 and 18, on Sunday, especially for lobster rolls. The food was delicious. Watching small planes and one jet take off and land was fascinating.
