Description: Our restaurant is located right in the heart of picturesque Lauderdale by the Sea and we're just 50 yards from the beach. Our goal is to provide quality food and service at very affordable prices in casual, relaxed and beautiful surroundings. 101 Ocean is a casual yet classy restaurant with excellent food and an atmosphere that's always fun and entertaining. Happy hour from 5-7pm 7 days a week with 50% off drinks! We have a huge outdoor bar with multiple TV's and inside we have a beautiful fish tank that captivates the kids. Our restaurant welcomes everyone - we very much hope you'll visit us soon!

Ate here for Christmas. Tiny amounts of food, horribly rubbery and no seasoning, bad service and did not care. Reported to waiter and manager who took nothing off the bill. Also reported to head chef who also did not care. Do NOT waste your money. Had to get some food at BK after I was so starving after our $160 of nothing.

Food was good, not exceptional. It's marketed as a Bistro and I think it fulfills that. Great area in a section of North Lauderdale by the beach. Lots going on so great place to people watch. And it allows dogs, which was nice to see.
Only negative was our server spent 20 minutes just chit chatting with the other table. (leaning on railing) It didn't affect us at first as we were deciding if we wanted another drink or desert. We waited for him to come over. At that point 10 minutes passed and when we realized the 10 minutes we waited was not the total time he was at the other table we decided ordering anything more was not a good idea. To get his attention we had to get up. And like many restaurants in Florida the tip was included, lucky for him. He would have been lucky to get 10% at that point. But I guess I will be happy with he didn't get extra for the after dinner drink and the dessert we were going to order.
Otherwise we enjoyed our dinner and drinks. We brought home some of our Crap and Spinach dip appetizer and enjoyed that on another day.

We spent our last evening of our Girls Only Vacation at this restaurant. The selection was wide and I had one of the best meals ever. The Vanilla Porter beer was also good. The white chocolate brioche bread pudding with fresh blueberries and I believe a vanilla rum sauce was eaten by the four of us with plenty to go around. My main meal was fish in a vanilla rum sauce? with mashed sweet potatoes and asparagus...yummm.

We had excellent service with a great server.

Have been here many times. Happy hour til 7 w/ half price drinks and app specials! All the food here has always been great. Shared crispy calamari (special that night $7!) and a margarita flatboard pizza. Both were great! During a sports event, all of the TVs are tuned to it and the bar is packed! Nice interior. I think it has been recently renovated. All in all, you can't go wrong eating and having a cocktail or 2 here! All ages, too, which is nice to see in Florida!

While this is a bar, the menu includes some very healthy fish dishes as well as pasta and other foods. The grouper is just great, includes mashed sweet potatoes and asparagus. Each night we had something different, all with seafood flair and each was great. Portions were large enough that we shared on meal. We didn't have the flat bread pizzas but they looked and smelled great. This is a great place for meeting other tourists as well as locals.
