“Great Food an excellent menu”

We came across Modern 20 and from the outside it looks slightly run down. When you walk in it it is a gem and the crab crusted gulf fish is amazing.

“Disappointing Main Courses”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Our group sampled several dishes. All agreed that the spinach and strawberry salad as well as the summer sensation salad were wonderful. The table shared the Bistro Shrimp appetizer and all raved over it. The soup (sweet potato bisque) was quite tasty, but a bit thin. Everybody raved about the desserts. My peanut butter pie was marvelous. The problem was the entrees. The crab crusted fish and the tuna were bland to tasteless. This was made worse when the waiter brught one of our party 2 wrong main dishes before finally bringing what she ordered. If we return we will order salad, appetizer and dessert and pass on the main dishes.

“Unexpected delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

We were headed for another place that apparently had closed (long drive--shoulda checked!) Asked the GPS and took a chance on One20. Glad we did. I had the summer salad which was watermelon, mango, mint, feta, cucumber. Very fresh and delightful. My companion had the blackened tuna sandwich was was wonderful. Each table got a bowl of their garlic fries and I think I'd go back for those alone. Service was not fast, but was OK.

“Won't be back”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Tonight my family and I thought, foolishly, that we could stop by this restaurant for a quick dinner before attending a local theater show. After being seated, we waited nearly 20 minutes to place our order and then the food was delivered haphazardly with my son and I receiving our food after 30 minutes and when we were just about finished eating, my husband's food arrived. The food itself was nothing particularly special and my pork chop was tough, dry, and over-cooked. Because of the extended duration from order to receiving our dinners, we felt rushed to eat and get out in time to make our show. The wait staff was inattentive and the restaurant appeared to be poorly managed. Needless to say....we won't be back nor will we recommend anyone else visit this establishment. Too bad....because Niceville really could use some more nice restaurants.
