I went yo visit old friends and asked to go to 101. They were hesitant and warned us that it was not like we remembered from when it first opened.
OK.. we decided to give it a try since they said hit or miss and hoping for a hit. Well it was a miss!
First off we waited 10 minutes to get our drink order from waitress who did not seem interested. Then we waited about another 5 minutes to get those drinks.. They were not packed at this hour by the way. I am going to leave it as Service over all is terrible because I will be here all day if I don't just leave it at that.
We got the Spinach and Art dip.. umm not too appetizing. Onion Rings were pretty good though.
Shrimp and Grits- Yuk! Do not get this dish, grits were like paste and shrimp were under cooked and had a slight chill in center. I like shrimp cocktail but I do not want under cooked shrimp with a chill in my hot grits! A piece of Bacon bit nearly broke my tooth. I got a side salad which had bruised old lettuce in it. = Miss on the entire entree and salad
She got the Ribs and she enjoyed them but said Ruby Tuesdays were better but not bad and she would order them again! = Hit
Our friends got:
Grilled Salmon- she said it was edible but bland and would not order it again. so her meal was a = Miss
He had a few bad experiences so decided to just do a cheeseburger.
He said it was hard to mess up a burger but sure thing he said noyhing special and bland. He enjoyed his fries though and left a 1/4 of the burger on the plate.
Our first time there a few years ago we had some of the best food and actually I remember they had great Steaks comparable to the old Putters Steakhouse in Clemmons where we used to live. If I am not mistaken one of the people from Putters started that place so it makes sense it was good when they first opened. My friends said when that guy left so did the food quality. The service we endured on our first few trips there when we lived in Clemmons and it first opened a few years ago from what I remember was not that bad but not great. Now the service is not just Awful it is terribly awful. 1 good meal out of 4 dishes and really bad service = never to go back!
Our friends live really close and have not been in over a year so that is saying something but we decided to see if we could get a hit since it was so good when it opened and I had my heart set on going.
I can not believe the good reviews on here and have to think these are people who work there or are friends with employees or owner... I hate giving small local places a bad review but I just had to because it was that bad.
I still like the old feel and historic look
