At Centennial, our passion is craft beer and our focus is simple: to celebrate craft beer. Beer can bring people together on a common ground and has the ability to create a community. Beer can elevate food. Beer is culture.

We feature 56 taps with a selection of 36 rotating craft beers. In addition to our taps, we feature a high volume of beers available in bottles and cans, as well as a curated selection of craft spirits and wines.

Centennial also features chef-driven food with an emphasis on craft beer. The menu focuses on beer pairings and incorporating beer and an ingredient. Centennial also features a house made charcuterie program in addition to a menu with emphasis on smoked, char grilled, and wood-fired ingredients.

We were excited to try this place since our building held an event here but we couldn’t go. The service was horrible. We sat ourselves and grabbed our own menus on the way in. The food was terrible. The chairs (bar stools) were the most uncomfortable things I’ve ever sat in. The place was also dead for a Saturday afternoon in the summer. Definitely a red flag.

We were ignored by the staff at first, no one took our order for 10 min. The food came quickly and was AMAZING! Then we were ignored again. We had to ask, hey, can we pay you before we leave or what?

We had just arrived in Chicago and were looking for a comfortable place to eat at. Centennial provided the place. There was a wide variety of beers, very good service, and some good alternatives to the usual brew pub fare. Centennial took good care of my iPad that I left there during my meal. This is definitely a place to return to upon my return to Chicago.

I love their beer selection. I love the decor, atmosphere and the overall vibe. The food is tasty, though I don't have a favorite yet. My daughter couldn't stop raving about the burger.

We intentionally picked this spot because it's in my neighborhood, doesn't have a tv, and has great variety of beers. Though it's crowded at night, we hoped for a nice late brunch without a crowd. It was perfect. Two of us had biscuit dishes. Happy to finally find a biscuit sandwich that doesn't fall apart, and is delicious. The third person had a large croque monsieur. The hashbrown wedges are triangles of shredded potatoes deep fried to a crisp. Pretty great for those of us who love crispy things. Great beer selection though I went with a great dry cider. All the staff was great, helpful, attentive, and welcoming.

It was a quieter weeknight when my friend and I went for dinner, so I imagine it's a different scene on weekends. But it was very modern, charming and pretty--lots of wood and lights. Our service was attentive and helpful and the food was good. We had charcuterie, lamb meatballs, brussel sprouts, and chips w/ beer cheese. I was expecting "chips" to be fries, but they really are chips! I'm not sure how loud it might get on weekends, but it was easy to have a good conversation without competing over noisy crowds. I'd definitely go back.

Great beer selection and laid back atmosphere, but not great for vegetarians and the food we had was pretty unremarkable. I can see his being a good spot for a casual group get-together, but I wouldn't go for dinner again.
