Service is excellent, food is good but unimaginative. Old school dining, not a trendy vibe.

We usually do take out because of my lung issue but we decided to try under the tent. It was very, very nice. Have always loved the Century House and recommend it to every one.

Even though we are going through a pandemic, the whole experience was excellent! It was our anniversary weekend, and we wanted to go back to where we were married which was The Century house. The food was fantastic, my husband got the special which was Osso bucco and the portion size was huge! We had a great time!

Very disappointed. We normally like Century House. I thought the outdoor setting was nice - but that was all that we thought was nice. Plastic cups and plates, sausages in the fried calamari (waiter said the cook often adds different things to the calamari???), my menu choice was no longer available, waiter did not know anything about cocktails (there was no cocktail menu), and my son could not finish his burger. My husband did think his meal was ok. I normally would have recommended Century House - not right now.

I immediately succumbed to the mention of Ubu among the craft beers being offered. An imperial pint for $8 is a fair price. My wife’s Lenten Saratoga Sparkling ($3.95) helped her to maintain her commitment.

A special appetizer for the day was listed as Gnocchi ($13) with both tomato and pesto sauces. My wife had seen a serving of it pass by and thought it looked inviting before she even knew what it was. So we ordered it. This is not your Nonna’s gnocchi but don’t knock’em. These were more like Tots. Large, deep fried, crispy on the outside and super soft and creamy on the inside. Both sauces were even delicious.

My wife decided on the Lobster Mac N Cheese ($23) with sherry cream and buttered panko bread crumbs. There was plenty of properly cooked lobster and excellent flavor, but she thought the consistency was too soupy.

I opted for another one of the day’s specials – Pork Osso Buco ($24.95) served with fingerling potatoes, tomatoes, mushrooms, and asparagus. This was a very large serving with plenty of really tender meat that easily slipped off the shank bones. While my wife thought the broth reminded her of turkey gravy, we both were in agreement that the pork was absolutely delicious. All of the vegetables were flavorful too. I ended up taking half my dish, minus the bones, home and it was equally enjoyable three days later.

I did decide to splurge with a slice of their Blueberry Cheesecake ($9) while my wife had a cup of Coffee ($2.50). The cheesecake was on the heavy and dense side and actually benefited from the whipped cream accented alongside. Granted, it’s been maybe seven years since we last had their coffee, but we both thought we remembered it having a much bolder flavor.

Service was friendly, attentive, and professional. Atmosphere is a real plus! And before I forget, the fresh warm rolls are really good too.

Girls afternoon out! Overall it was a very good experience. One in our party of 5 said her meat ( beef tips skillet special) was tough. The server took it back immediately and brought a different selection- fish and chips. Which was very good.
The lobster chowder was to diegor

Their Valentine's Day Dinner menu had so many delicious items to choose from, it was hard to pick. Coffee short rib (bone in) with cocoa beef demi sauce was phenomenal. Shrimp cocktail was colossal and fresh (though the cocktail sauce could use more kick). Food was plated beautifully, service was impeccable. Cocktail drinks were unique and made properly.

We recently went to the Century House with another couple for their prime rib night. Two in our group ordered the prime rib dinner and said it was absolutely fabulous. The meat was tender and perfectly cooked, and the side dishes were delicious . One person ordered the chicken on the menu and thoroughly enjoyed it. I ordered the filet mignon, and it turned out to be one of the best filets I’ve ever had in my life. It rivaled (and in some cases exceeded) any filet I’ve ever had at a high-end steakhouse in New York City. It was perfectly cooked with a slight char, tender, and incredibly flavorful. Our waiter was friendly, helpful and professional. This restaurant never disappoints, which probably explains why it has been around as long as it has. The manager is often there, going from table to table to make you feel welcome. We love the Century House and highly recommend dining there. You will be happy you did.

The food was great! We'll be back - one of the best meals we've had near Clifton Park. However, the room was much too dim. The dinner menu was hard to read. And my prime rib, like all prime rib, had some fat. However, it was very difficult for me to see the fat to cut it out.
