I almost always get the filet mignon but this time I opted for the salmon and it was great.

Dining Room can get noisy
The Century House has several rooms for special occasions. When we were there there was at least one weddding and one other large gathering. The bar area was full with some of these guests. The dining room is adjacent to the bar area so it is understandable that the energetic noise level from the bar would infiltrate the dinind room. The service was very good and accommodating.

I hadn't been to the Century
I hadn't been to the Century House for years, but decided to take my Dad for his 75th birthday. Except for an unorganized hostess, the service was great and the food was very good. We all enjoyed.

Four clients from Arizona
Four clients from Arizona and Texas were hosted for dinner. They liked the uniqueness of the restaurant. The dining room was at about 30% capacity so it was nice and quiet and we were able to enjoy relaxed conversation. The quality of the meals was outstanding and portions were large. I highly recommend the Century House for out of town guests who have seen all the chain restaurants before.

Wonderful restaurant, but probably pricey for the quality of the food.

Dad loved it!
Have brought Dad to the Century House twice - once for his 75th birthday and once for Father's Day, and he enjoyed it each time. He can be a bit picky, and on each visit he loved his meal. The service was great both times as well, and the servers always made my dad feel special.

All was fantastic...I might make it a bit brighter in there, and maybe not so cool, but food and service was outstanding:)

Happy to be back
We have been to the Century House several times in the past. When crowded, the noise level and be challenging for conversation. This time we were there for a Sunday evening dinner and the atmosphere, service and food hit their high water mark. Instead of an entrée I ordered two appetizers which were substantial and filling; my guest ordered the evening special and couldn't stop talking about it all the way home. Paul, our server, was vigilant and most accommodating. We left resolving to be back sooner rather than later.

Went to the Century House for a special occasion & were quite pleased w/ the experience. It was a little lounder than I expected & was a little difficult to hear the piano player, but as some of the larger parties left, the noise level came down. I ordered a filet mignon medium rare, but it came out closer to well done with just a tad of pink showing. One of my daughters had the filet mignon & my husband had another steak & both were cooked perfectly. We told the waitress who informed the manager. The manager came right over & offered me a free dessert in compensation. Other than the one filet , the rest of the meal from drinks & appetizers to dessert was very good. The staff was very friendly & helpful . We would definitely go back.

Paul our waiter was outstanding. Food portions were very generous and cooked to perfection. Always enjoy this restaurant. It's a gem and if you are from out of town you should definitely eat here.

Great Overall Experience
Overall the experience was fantastic. The atmosphere was comfortable and cozy. The service was great, and the food was also. I had the lamb special and my wife had the Gorgonzola encrusted Filet, along with a fantastic mousse for dessert. I recommend the cheese plate appetizer with the Raspberry infused cheddar. We had a wonderful bottle of wine, and will return again.

Paul was spectacular.
We have dined here before - it is on the premises of the Clarion Hotel and near Albany. The restaurant had a fire going, the decor is Early American. Our server, Paul, was an excellent waiter. Even though it wasn't on the menu, the bar tender made a frozen Pina Colada for me. I had the roasted chicken which was a half chicken and was tender and flavorful, served with spinach and a fritter. Joe had scallops with risotto which he loved. We were too full for dessert so Paul suggested he have it delivered to our room in about an hour which he did. I had the chocolate mousse which was rich and delicious and Joe had the bread pudding warm with ice cream which he gobbled up quickly! If you are visiting Saratoga or Albany, this is a great stop.

Great food and service
We have dined at The Century House twice recently. On both occations the food was wonderful and the service very good. At our second dinner the waiter from the first time remembered us and what we had ordered. The first time my wife had lamb chops that were great cookef perfectly. The second time she had porterhouse and that was wonderful. I had the prime rib and it was wonderful very tender.

We brought guests twice this week to the Century House and enjoyed both occasions. Although we only visit the area about twice a year we have found the food and service to be consistently good thru the years. The atmosphere is warm and pleasant, We definitely will return and we complement the owners on their long standing program of providing meals to the needy thru the local food bank.

Food was good, but filet mignon
Food was good, but filet mignon was overcooked again. This is my second visit to Century House and both times I've ordered the filet mignon medium rare; first time it came out closer to well done and this time it was more medium. Other members of the party have enjoyed their meals so I'll just pick another entree. It was quiet when we got there, but once more parties started arriving, the noise level increased. Piano player was very good. Seemed to be a lot of employees multi-tasking. I would definitely return and recommend to a friend.

Took my tennis team here--10 of us. The food came all at once, so no awkwardness, the food was delicious and varied, including gluten-free selections, and the waiter sang to our birthday gal--'fairy tales can come true'. Beautiful voice and a conversation stopper at all tables. We loved everything.

birthday dinner for mom
My mom loves seafood and loved her dinner choice. Actually all 6 of us loved our dinners. The greeter was exceptionally pleasant and our server must have guessed we were there for a special occasion and surprised my mother, and us, with a little mousse with a candle. Nice touch!

Wife's surf & turf and my prime rib were excellent. Sides of asparagus and whipped potatoes were done to perfection. Wife's cesar salad was perfect, as was my three onion soup.

fabulous experience. We had
fabulous experience. We had a private dining area - which made it perfect for my mother's 82nd birthday party (we could all hear each other!). The service and food is always exceptional. We love their "Enjoy One, Share One" program they do here. We recommend The Century House to everyone - and look forward to our next visit.

Excellent cuisine in a rustic, serene environment, Innovative Old-World-Meets-New menu selections, attentive professional service. If you're looking for something traditional yet just a little different, try the Century House - you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I had our wedding reception at the century house. We enjoy going there for special occasions.

Charming Early American
The Century House has large and small rooms to accommodate groups but its greatest attraction for us is the Colonial feel of the dining room and bar. We don't have to travel to Williamsburg or Philadelphia for the ambience. We have hosted large and small groups there but the greatest attraction is the dining room and bar.

Just a Nice Place
There's not a lot to say about the Century House. It's been a staple of the community for as long as I can remember. But it's one of those classic places where you can get a relaxing and delicious meal. The decor is very inviting and the wait staff is friendly and efficient. We truly enjoyed our dining experience and will be back again soon.

Companion and I went to Century
Companion and I went to Century House on 10/22/13, week of the 3-course dinner. There was a choice of only 2 entrees which
were (1) Half a chicken or (2) Gnocchi dinners. I thought the choices to be inadequate and would have preferred at least a
selection of 4.
Since we had chicken for a few of the previous days, we ordered the gnocchi. We found it to be rather bland and pasty. We
were disappointed but not discouraged enough that we would not return another time and order from the regular menu.

We love it here!
We come here for all of a major family celebrations. Their food is amazing and we just love it here. There's no other place like this around here. The Century House is #1 in our book!

It's Been a Century!
In my mind, this was always the place "where my parents went to dinner" - without us kids. But recently a friend suggested we have dinner here. Now I see why my folks liked this place. Excellent food in the cozy dining room. We were seated in front of the lovely fireplace. Service was good and the food was excellent. Young people are missing out if they don't give The Century House a try.I had the crabcakes. Fresh tasting and perfectly spiced, these hit the spot. My friends gave high marks to the gnocchi and the pork sliders.

A gentler, kinder restaurant
Each time I come here the food seems to get better, the chef is always experimenting. Service is always attentive and friendly. A great place for friends to catch up. But the fact that for each meal sold another is donated to those in need gives the Century House a uniqueness that keeps me coming back.

During the past two months while my Mom has stayed with us we have gone out to eat three to four times a week. The Century House has been our best experience yet! Special services were required and they were provided flawlessly. The courses were brought to the table at just the right times. It was delicious. Most important was my Mom was happy.
