Enjoyed food, wish they took it up
an extra notch, then it would have been outstanding. Lots of kids running around, which I didn't enjoy with a restaraunt with these type of prices. Getting to be one of my worst pet peeves how parents let kids run wild or cry and do nothing about it. Service was great. Only complaint was that for a party of five, it took an hour to get our entrees."

They have a great menu, we had
calamari and it was flavorless so we asked for a cocktail sauce and that helped. We both had the ribeye which had great flavor and seasoned perfect but it was tough too tough to have paid 34 a plate. We did enjoy the large selection of local beer."

Excellent seating, food, ambience.
Seasonal selection of various meat dishes with delicious sides. Full bar and expceptional wine list. Quiet low lit interior. Fire place and fountain in the patio area."

If you're in the Transpecos region
and in Alpine (or Marfa or Fort Davis), The Century Bar and Grill is a great place to dine. Somewhat on the pricey side, but worth it for food and atmosphere. Beef items quite nice, and cooked just right. Had a green tomato appetizer that was delicious. Bar has some great specialty drinks, one including jalapeno pepper that's very good; wine list good, too."

got in late on the train, our
reservation was still good, the food was fabulous, and everyone was very accommodating."

We had a guest in town and thought
it would be a great place to take them for dinner on a Saturday night. We ordered within ten minutes of being seated and did not receive our food for an hour and fifteen minutes. We ordered salads and a burger. The waitress checked on us about three or four times while we were waiting, did not offer extra bread the entire wait and did not notice until after an hour that we still had not gotten our meal. Our waitress had only two tables other than ours. After our food came, we were told there had been an issue in the kitchen all day. That would have been nice to know when we were seated or when we ordered. If we do return we will request a different waitress and make sure we are not hungry when seated."

We had reservations for 7pm after
having eaten a traditional Turkey Day meal at 1pm. When we arrived, the host told us the only food was a prix fixe complete traditional meal. No fault of their own, but we were interested in maybe only a bowl of soup. So we sat at the nice little bar and watched football over drinks. I would go back and try the food when we're next in town, but Alpine is a LONG way from home. The bartender, whose name I did not catch, was super nice."

First time at Century Grill. Food
was very good, service was very good. The manager generously gave my son a piece of Bourbon Pecan Pie for his 18th birthday. Others also ordered pie and said it was the best pecan pie they had ever eaten. Would definitely dine here again for special occasion or happy hour with friends."

Incroyable. That's the one word I
sense says it well when describing how my dining experience was at the Century Bar and Grill. When you reserve a table at a restaurant more than five (5) hours away from your home, you hope to get a good experience. However, it's rare that you get an incredible, first class restaurant with five star food AND complete personalization for your dining experience. I booked the dinner as a special dinner to celebrate my husband's 67th birthday. The restaurant responded by making the celebration more than spectacular. The restaurant and the maitre-d' had a special table for us and told us there was a complimentary bottle of champagne and dessert all set for our special dinner. Our evening was amazing."

The Century is a great place to go
in Alpine. The hostess should be commended for her friendliness and sweetness. We enjoyed talking with her. The salad with the grapefruit is terrific!"
Dined on 11/3/2013
This is a welcome addition to the
little town of Alpine. And it is especially great for 5 reasons: wonderful food, exceptional service (very rare Southwest TX), great wine list, open late, and open on Sundays!"

Nice room, quail appetizer was
excellent, salmon presented beautifully but a tiny bit overdone. Small but well chosen wine list. We'll be back, definitely."

We had a very good experience at
the Century Bar and Grill. The food was excellent, the ambience wonderful, and the service was really outstanding. We were in a good mood and folks serving us matched our mood perfectly! The food was very good, including an outstanding goat cheese appetizer. The room was lovely and the view to the patio outside was great. Could not ask for a better dining experience!"

Our first visit to Century Grill,
and what a wonderful experience! We are from Houston but visit the Big Bend as often as we can. The Century Grill is as good or better than some of the fine restaurants we enjoy at home. Our waiter was knowledgeable and charming; the menu is interesting and creative; the food preparation was outstanding. Unique setting in the restored but vintage Holland Hotel added to the adventure of fine dining in Alpine. An unexpectedly delicious meal! We will return!"

"I love the relaxed feel of this
place - like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes"
Dined on 8/5/2013
This is a great restaurant and bar
in the historic Holland Hotel. Lovely interiors, cozy seating. The food is amazingly fresh, tasty and really delicious. The staff is friendly but service a bit chaotic. The wine list really needs some work and improvement. But overall a very cool place to dine in Alpine."

Century Bar & Grill is a great
place to have a special dinner or a weekly outing. Low lit interior with modern bar area. Large, narrow outdoor dining area in a courtyard. Seating is spacious; no need to worry about sitting too close to another table. Staff was very kind and didn't hover over us. Fireplace and sitting/coffee table area at back end of courtyard. Lengthy wine list Modern food menu. Some old country favorites with a twist, and much more. I had a home made chicken fried steak with jalapeno/chorizo/corn gravy and fresh green beans. My wife had a lemon chicken leg with mint couscous. Both were to die for. I'd suggest reservations for Friday - Sunday, but other nights will probably do without."

Century Bar and Grill is a nice
addition to the local restaurant scene. If it's a holiday or special event, seems best to get a reservation. Seems a little pricey, but that's okay."
Dined on 6/16/2013
We enjoy dining al fresco, and it
was a perfect Friday night to dine in the patio, which was decorated with desert plants - including a cactus in beautiful bloom. The food was excellent, the presentation was attractive. It was the first night for our waitress, Laura. She was friendly, attentive, well-informed about the menu and a careful listener. She kept us advised when my husband's special order beverage took a little longer to prepare. Thanks for a very pleasant evening in Alpine!"

The grilled rib steak was
outstanding- served with port wine sauce , asparagus and chile dusted onion rings. The wait staff was superb- very solicitous but not intrusive. The wait staff are young college students from Sull Ross University and very polite and friendly. It was a great dining experience."

There are not many fine dining
options in Alpine. Century Bar and Grill and Reata are the only options. Both are good, but only Century Bar and Grill accepts OpenTable reservations. This is a must on a busy night."
Dined on 3/13/2013
Pickins slim in Alpine, w/Reata &
Century as only upscale dining options. Never having been to Alpine, opted for Century-no real reason over Reata. Was almost empty at 7:p except for a few people in bar; got busy around 8:p. Decor & ambiance are simple, classic, pleasant. Pan-fried trout w/risotto & grilled squash was excellent, as was prime rib w/mashed potatoes. Both were specials from wall board without pricing-typical-although billed $30 and $40 respectively. Thought was outrageous, considering regular menu prices for meals ranged from only about $16-$25. Small wine pours, although had free drink coupons from hotel we forgot to use. Waitstaff tried very hard to "perform" like urban pros-odd. Overall, though, nice meal & experience."

We enjoyed our dinner in the
restaurant and the time we spent in the bar. Food and drink were good and the service was outstanding. We would return again to this establishment."

Best dinner my wife and I enjoyed
in the Big Bend region during spring break. The service was impeccable and the meal was delicious. Would highly recommend!"
Dined on 3/12/2013
We lucked in to some last minute
reservations through Open Table. The kitchen was slow but the wait was worth it. I had a Wonderful pork chop in apple cider garnish with fresh veggies and a nice Chardonnay. The ambience of the old redone Holland Hotel adds to the experience. Don't miss it when you are in Alpine."
