Wanted to try the Prime Rib special & we were celebrating a birthday so our expectations were high- they completely met them (even with a 'full house') which made the whole dining experience a pleasure! Thank you to the Hostess,Chefs & server-Will definitely be returning!

Thanksgiving at the Century House has gotten progressively worse over the past two years, since they stopped doing the buffet. This year the lobster bisque was loaded with bacon, making it way too salty. The main entrée had too much turkey, hardly any mashed potatoes, way too much broccolini, and the stuffing was far below average. I've been going to the Century House every year for the past 10 years, and this will be my last year there.

We had not been here in a few years, so we were pleasantly surprised to find that they had made several updates to the dining area while maintaining their basic theme. Server Kristine was pleasant, attentive, and gave us the correct amount of privacy. Alabama wings for starter were interesting. Wings could have used another minute frying, as I like them crispy. Not listed on menu, but you can order a Petite Garden Salad instead of their meal salads. Chicken Madiera (sp?) was prepared nicely, with a huge portion that my wife brought half home for our son to have. Tuesday Lobster Special was the Fra Diavlo. Adequate portion as I am trying to not overeat while dining out. Not too spicy, but just enough to give a bit of a kick. Hay Ride Mule was meh. I ordered a mocktail Gosling which was much better. Hob Nob wine for my wife, and price was a reasonable $8/glass. Chocolate Mousse shared for dessert. Fresh cream, and half of mousse was superb, but the other half was almost fudge like quality and slightly disappointed.

Five of us were at the Century House to celebrate a birthday. We had a wonderful time and excellent meals. It was an early dinner so we were able to enjoy a peaceful time. The waitress was skilled and attentive to our questions and to each of us. We highly recommend early dining here.

My mother’s birthday. Nobody greeted us at the door then I walked to the bar. The bartender gave me lunch menus at dinner time but he did bring us to our table. However, once we got our server things went off without a hitch. Food came out very quick and was excellent.

The food was excellent, as was the service. Overall, a very good value for the quality. With a 7:15 PM reservation, upon seating, the main dining area was rather loud. By the time our entrees arrived, it had lessened to a comfortable discussion level.

Have been there before and was looking forward to the Wednesday night Prime Rib special and it didn’t disappoint. My wife and I are older and sometimes the portions are large. This 12oz. With mashed potato was just perfect. Will definitely go back.

Would've given a better rating for ambiance, but we were seated in the small room in the original part of the structure, which just doesn't have the same ambiance as the main dining room. Also, my husband and I have been coming to the Century House since 2006, had our rehearsal dinner and baby shower there. As a vegetarian, I find it lacking any real options. Not every vegetarian eats tofu (vegan ravioli on your menu). Perhaps add a vegetable risotto dish or roasted vegetables? Thank you.

The portions were good and the prices reasonable. We went on the prime rib special night, and they offered several other specials . However, my fish with overcooked but the management came through with a free dessert. When there was a bit of a wait for dessert to arrive, they gave us a second free dessert! So overall it was a good experience.
