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
I’ve been to 121 on several occasions - lunch, dinner, special events. The menu never disappoints, the service is outstanding, and the prices are reasonable!!
All is very nice, but the portion of fish relative to the price was really not worth it...
Maybe I’m just a snob, but a friend recommended restaurant to me and said how great it was. I honestly couldn’t careless about view of planes taking off and sucking in fumes from jets. I was underwhelmed by food and cocktail selections. Our server was AMAZING!!! Hence the 4 stars. Definitely will not be returning.
Food was very mediocre. Burgers were dry, jambalaya was watery, steak was unevenly cooked. Service was lacking and took over an hour to get main courses. Great view of the airport, probably a fun bar scene, don't go for the food though. Long hike for very blah flavors.
12:30 arrived for 12:30 reservation.
1:05 placed order.
2:10 order was served. Over an hour wait for burgers, pizza, grilled cheese. Bread was brought to table as we were finishing. Not a good experience with 4 starving children.
Unique location and overall great atmosphere. Food is good too.
We went for our anniversary dinner. Our table was ready, the view was breathtaking, and the service was great. The portion in the steak was incredibly small, but the pasta was big enough for 2! Other than the small portion for what we paid, it was great!
I made a bad choice in short rib appetizer. There were a lot of chips, some cheese and about 1/4 cup of short rib. Unusual for 121. I didn’t like the white sangria either. I love 121 and next week will go back to my favorite, their burger.
Awesome service, food and wine! Worth the drive for us!
It was an early dinner so we understand not a lot of staff was there for the dinner shift. Mussels appetizer was good husband asked for bread for the broth. None was cooked yet. Rolls are frozen par cooked. Took a while to get some by then the broth was cold. Truffle Arancini also good. Salmon club also served on a par cooked frozen roll. Never seen a club served on a roll before let alone a par cooked frozen one. If I had known that I would have never ordered it. Fish tacos were good but cod was soft-most fish taco are crispy. Menu descriptions are too minimal you will assume a lot. Apple crepe was the best part of the meal. Please ditch the parcooked rolls.
Awesome time as always at 121. Great food good drinks great atmosphere
MY HUSBAND AND I WILL DEFINITELY GO BACK. THE FOOD WAS AMAZING.
Food was excellent. We had the spicy bbq wings for appetizer. Thier alcohol drinks were great you can actually taste the achohol lol
Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch with family couple who had never dined at 121. They plan on attending with there older autistic son who would love to see the planes, if they are flying. Know that they will plan a visit soon and will, again, find everything delicious and enjoyable.
We had a terrific dinner at the 121 Restaurant. We sat by the window as the sun was setting, so pretty. Everyone enjoyed their appetizers, truffle arancini, caesar salad and mussels. The bread and whipped butter brought to the table was also very good. Our entrees were amazing and cooked perfectly. Thank you 121!
Wait staff was excellent but the kitchen is very slow which effects the service.
Everything at 121 was excellent. We received great service and we enjoyed the food.
The rib eye special was fine, but the braised short ribs were phenomenal!
Went there for a small birthday celebration. We ordered calamari for the table, small portion but it was good. We had burgers, the rolled chicken dish and the cod and everyone enjoyed their meal. For desert we had ice cream (large portion), apple crepe and a chocolate dessert. All were good but the crepe was a little burnt in places which lent an unpleasant taste to some of the dish. Service was good and fun seeing the planes take off.
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!!!
Amazing location, great atmosphere, excellent food, friendly waitress.
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!
