The food was amazing. Prime rib so tender and delicious makes me hungry just thinking about it. The service was excellent. All of the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had an amazing dining experience.

Had the veal chop tonight. Very good! My companion had the hot lobster roll ( tried because a TV food personality said hot was the best!). She said she'll never have another, only cold lobster rolls!
BTW- I never provide 5 star ratings unless everything is impeccable. 4* leaves room for improvement.
One of my complaints is steaks are no longer served here! A disappointment!

The Century House is an extremely reliable place for good quality food. As always every item was well prepared and enjoyable to eat. The service was very cordial. I find this one of the best restaurants in the area to take guests for a meal on a special occasion.

The Century House always does a great job. Great food and well trained and efficient courteous staff. Their concern for COVID Cleanliness is second to none, and one of the only places I feel comfortable eating indoors currently.

This was our first time back since this whole lockdown started and boy have I missed it! The prime rib was wonderful! The oysters and wedge salad were also delicious!
And to top it off, Liz, our server, was fabulous!
The Century House Restaurant is definitely back on our list and we cannot wait to go back!

An inn with a very traditional American flavor. An "Ethan Allen" essence. While I like being adventuresome in choosing a restaurant, once in a while, I long for the familiar and Century House never disappoints.

This was the perfect night to spend our five year anniversary at the same place that we got married!
Service was prompt and attentive.
We got the date night special and the the house Pinot Grigio was fabulous!!
My husband and I were so impressed with the steak, lobster and drinking delicious wine.
We would not have wanted to spend our anniversary at any other place!
Perfect date night!

We dined indoors and everything was done according to pandemic rules. Servers had gloves and masks. Disinfectant on the tables. We got the three course special and it was worth every penny. Soup, turkey dinner and dessert. All for $25. Definitely will return. We felt safe in this crazy time.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at the Century House. In these times of Covid, We were happy to see the tables nicely spaced and all staff members wearing face masks. Our waiter, Stephen, was gracious and attentive, and took great care of us. We were very pleased with both our cocktails and our meals. I miss the house rolls they used to serve pre-Covid, but understand the need to make some changes and offer a different brand. For our entrees, we opted for the hot lobster bun and the scallops. The lobster was absolutely delicious and the accompanying French fries were piping hot and crispy. The scallops were served with a sauce on the side and were perfectly cooked. A surprisingly hit of the evening was the appetizer of Upside Down French Onion Meatballs. The dish is basically well made meatballs in the restaurant’s French onion soup, which is full of depth and flavor. Next time, we might even order it as a light entree. We look forward to returning soon. We have dined at the Century House for decades and it never disappoints.

I love to stop at this restaurant when I am traveling. I stay at the Inn and schedule an evening meal at the restaurant. The prime rib is superb. I enjoy the comfortable ambience of the restaurant and the staff is well trained and gracious.
