Not child friendly.
We picked this restaurant to have dinner with family from out of town, specifically hoping for a family friendly atmosphere. We had 4 little children playing in the empty corner, pretty quietly considering their age. They were quickly corrected & asked to be quiet by staff. The restaurant was very quiet, floors squeaky, so you could hear everything throughout the restaurant.
We understand that not everyone likes children & can tolerate noise they make. But the staff was not graceful in speaking to us.
The waiter was short tempered. If we had a minor request, he’d snap at us with «Let me take care of “this” FIRST!”. We felt unwelcome, uncomfortable & wanted to leave.
The food was very good though.
I hope the staff reads it & implements some changes in customer service. Both me & my husband worked in restaurants & we understand that it’s not a walk in the park, but customer service is EVERYTHING, even if the food is not 100%.
The place to go......great food, service and
Old world charm.
Good drinks also

I WAS DISAPPOINTED BY THE SERVICE AND FOOD. WE HAD TO WAIT A LONG TIME, 20 MIN. FOR OUR SOUPS AND ANOTHER 20 MIN FOR OUR ENTREES. IT WAS PRIME RIB SPECIAL NIGHT SO IT WAS A GOOD VALUE. THE RIB WAS TASTY BUT A LITTLE TOUGH. MY SON ORDERED A SHRIMP DISH AND WAS DISAPPOINTED TO HAVE SMALL SHRIMP WHEREAS IN THE PAST THEY WERE BIGGER SHRIMP. THE BREAD WAS WARM BUT SEEMED STALE, NOT FRESH. I DON'T KNOW WHETHER WE WILL GO BACK.
I ordered Monk fish. The fish was raw in the middle and I showed the waiter. He said he would bring me a new one. After 10 minutes ,and my husband having his dinner , he brought me the same piece of fish that was just cooked a little more. That was OK however my husband basically ate alone and I hurried to finish to try to have him not wait for me . I feel there should have been some compensation made except a free cup of coffee
Thank you for providing us with details about your visit. We appreciate your feedback and are happy we were able to discuss your experience further with you. We're thrilled your second visit with us last night was wonderful and more consistent with what guests of the Century House have come to expect and love. Hope to see you again soon!
Great Food, great service, great to sit near the fire on a cool evening!
Thank you for dining with us. We appreciate the 5 star rating and hope to see you again soon!
Excellent service. Ordered the prime rib dinner which was the special on Wednesday night. Cooked perfect, simply delicious. Fantastic value at 19.99.
Thanks for joining us for Prime Rib Wednesday! It's always great hearing from happy guests like you and we're delighted you enjoyed your meal. We'd love to see you again soon!
I’d go again to see if the service is better on days other than Mother’s Day. I didn’t feel special at all with our waiter. He was rushing and short and not around a lot.
Wine glass was dirty, I had to send wine back.
Staff tried to take our plates while we were still eating.
I think these special days are terrible. I’ll check out the service on a regular day someday after I get the bitter taste out of my mouth.
Thank you for the feedback and for choosing to dine with us on Mother's Day. We strive to provide every guest with the best possible experience, which is why we're surprised to hear yours was anything less than perfect. Please know this is not the norm for us. We look forward to your return visit and appreciate you giving us the opportunity to provide the excellent service guests of The Century House have come to expect and love from us!
The food was delicious but expensive although it was Mother's Day. The noise level, however, made it almost impossible to enjoy our companions--conversation was quite difficult as we could not hear each other. The salmon was delicious, the beet salad was fabulous, and the desserts were unbelievable!! YES, we will return to the Century House but probably not on another holiday.
Thank you for choosing to dine with us on Mother's Day. We're delighted to hear you enjoyed your meal so much and appreciate your feedback. We do have a few smaller rooms off the main dining room that lend themselves to a more intimate and quieter dining experience which are usually open to guests during holidays. Please feel welcome to inquire about one of these dining rooms during your next visit. We look forward to seeing you again!
Main dining room was not crowded. Tables were available. Hostess had trouble finding our reservation and behaved as if we didn’t have one. We were led to a small room off the entry. Were the ONLY patrons of the room and yet were given a tiny table in the back corner. We could have stayed at home for all the ambiance we had. Food was ok.
Thank you for your feedback and loyalty throughout the years. We strive to ensure the best possible experience every time you visit. As you were a party of 2, our host seated you in our semi-private room to provide a more intimate setting, however, we are happy to seat you in the main dining room during your next visit if that is your preference. Please just let the host know when making your reservation. We hope to see you again soon. Sincerely, The Century House
I always thought of the Century House as just a banquet kind of place. Was I wrong. We found a great restaurant with a interesting menu and many specials. Our dinner was great as was the service. We will be back. I highly recommend the Century House.
Thank you for dining with us! We're delighted to hear you enjoyed your meal and the atmosphere in our restaurant. We appreciate your high recommendation to other diners and would love to see you again soon!
Our meals were delicious! I had the Grilled Shrimp with sides of Spinach, Parmesan Polenta cake, tomato, 2 lobster claws, and Crabmeat. My husband had the Chicken Madeira.
Thank you for dining with us! We're delighted to hear you enjoyed your meal in our restaurant. We'd love to see you again soon!
Amazing! Great food and service!!
Overall excellent food except for portion of salmon served. It wasn’t even an appetizer size. Tried and true standard for our area.
We enjoyed excellent food and service for our party of six on Easter Sunday.
A favorite restaurant of mine, it lived up to all expectations.
Probably the best prime rib I’ve ever had. The lobster chowder was amazing. Wonderful service!!!
We opted to have our Easter dinner at The Century House and it was delicious! The special menu was pre-fixe for us to pick an appetizer, entree and dessert. There was even a vegan option for special dieters. Two at our table ordered that dish and were asked if they were indeed "vegan". Neither are so their ravioli was cheese rather than tofu. We liked that there was an option without meat, yet could be switched out for cheese so the vegetarians at the table were happy.
We were looking forward very much to our Easter experience and, although our previous experience with the buffet was outstanding, this fixed menu approach was not. Food was good, but service was EXTREMELY slow--more than 2 hours for 3 courses. This made the experience uncomfortable with our granddaughter and frankly, far too slow for adults even if the toddler were not present. We will not likely reserve again.
Never disappointed!! Always delicious and service is extraordinary. Thanks for taking such great care of us.
The food is well prepared and the menu has options for everyone. The service was exceptional. The only negative is that the restaurant is very noise and dark.
Prime rib was tasteless and rare when I ordered med
Husband ordered salmon and was brought tilapi
Never was offers any compensation
Will never go back and will tell friends not to go
Our new favorite spot we love prime rib Wednesdays, great atmosphere, great service, can't wait for our next visit
Every time we go to the Century House it is just amazing! The food is always so Good!!! The service is spot on and if you have any kind of wait the staff is all over it.We had our wedding there 2 years ago but have been going there for all 9ur special dates. It is such a treat to be able to go and just enjoy every part of the evening!!
One of my favorite places in this area to go for steak, fish or even a burger. Prime rib is to die for and their service is always friendly and prompt. Great wine selection and cocktails, too. I will be returning!
The food was great. The prime rib dinner was about the best I’ve had. Also had some nice cocktails, too. We were serve well by Steve. Enjoyed the dinner very much. Kudos to the restaurant for donations to needy.
The food was excellent as always. The service was fantastic. Century house is a great place to go for any kind of special event
Place was very busy so our food took awhile to come out but food was delicious. Waitress was attentive and apologetic for delay. We will be back.
Thank you DonnaW! We're happy to hear you enjoyed your meal and look forward to your return visit!
Used a groupon from (4) years ago with no issues. Service was outstanding, food was just as good if not better. Atmosphere was warm and cozy. Loved the fire place too!! Excellent attention and knowledge to gluten allergy with lots of food selections to choose from. I don’t know why we haven’t been here sooner but we will certantly be back often. (2) glasses of wine, salads, entrees (steak and chicken) and desserts was a very reasonable $110 before tip.
Thanks for dining with us! We're delighted you had an opportunity to use the groupon credit and enjoy a meal at our House. Happy to hear you had a great experience with food, service and atmosphere. Now that you've visited, we hope you'll come back again soon!
In that it was Restaurant Week, the restaurant was very busy, with almost every table taken and a lively bar crowd. The service was still excellent and the choices were diverse and interesting. My husband loved the Osso Buco and I devoured the lobster mac and cheese. The lemon trifle was so light and delicious that I was scraping the glass to get every last morsel. I have never had anything but a great meal at the Century House.
Thanks for joining us for Restaurant Week! We're delighted you enjoyed the selections and appreciate your loyal business. Look for another Restaurant Week this fall, and of course, we'd love to see you back at our House soon!
Nick, Jennifer and Colin are the best. We love Century House.. The Daley-Kowalski family
Awww, thank you for spending St. Patrick's Day with us. We're glad you had a fantastic time and it's always a pleasure serving loyal guests like you. Hope to see you again soon!
Drinks, service and dinner were great. Dessert was poor.
Excellent food and environment. The staff was a little pretentious. Hostess was annoying. The restaurant was pretty busy and she was overwhelmed.
Great as always....fantastic food and great service!
We had the prime rib special which was excellent and the chocolate mousse for dessert which was outstanding. Service was also great.
I would give five stars but I think it’s a little too dark in the room. Plus if there is a large party near by, it can be noisy. My husband and I like intimate & quite. However, the food is excellent, which brings us back.
The food and service are always great!!
