OK - I get it. Some people likea quirky little dinner. . I don't want shoe string potatoes as a substitute for bread at a restaurant. This is the ONLY restaurant I have been in that you cannot get bread with dinner. That is crazy. We went with our friends on a Thursday evening. We went early but the place... More

So, we went there a few weeks ago after having some drinks at 3rd Planet Brewing. I will say that their complementary fries are incredible. It was downhill from there. My wife had the steak and I had the special, Jamaican fish. The steak was bad and for the fish...I've been to Jamaica many times and that dish had nothing... More

Honestly, my wife would have rated the meal higher - her food was actually pretty good. The Pork Milanese dinner was breaded and cooked well, and the salad was excellent. The only complaint was that the plate was too small, and the mashed potatoes had to rest on top of the pork. There was no way to add the salad... More

My wife and I stop in here at least once a month. Excellent, small family-owned place. Chef Dan is an Award Winning Chef, and is regularly rated Top Chef and Caterer in the area.

A group of 8 so us dined for lunch and arrived at differing times. Our waitress neglected those who arrived late and we had to summon her to take our drink orders and then again for our food orders. After a very long wait everyone's food arrived. If it weren't for the complimentary fries I think we would have starved.... More

Through the years I have never had a bad meal at One 20. I tried Sunday Brunch for the first time this past Sunday. Oh my. The choices were plenty and it was difficult to narrow down, but I finally did and it was delicious. "Charming" is a great description of the atmosphere. Oh yeah, the $10.00 bottomless mimosas may...

The atmosphere was very nice and the service was great. My son loved his flank steak and my daughter-in-law enjoyed her blackened shrimp and grits. I ordered the grouper and was not impressed.

We came over from Miramar Beach because everything was slammed and we had heard this was good. I was surprised by the poor reviews. You can tell this food was created by a Chef and both the taste and presentation were spectacular. I only give 5 stars to the bat places I've eaten in the world. This wasn't that but... More
