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.

Best dinner my wife and I
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!

Dining worthy of a much larger town
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.

The grilled rib steak was
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.

Friday night al fresco
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!

Nice addition to local scene
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.

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.

"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

Wonderful evening in West Texas!
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!

Great atmosphere, wonderful service
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!

Great spot for diner
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.

Great new restaurant!
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!

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!

Graceful Restaurant Par Excellence
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.

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.
