We dined here for the first time and wow we have been missing out! Every single thing we ordered was amazing. Everything from appetizers, meals, drinks, and even the bread brought to our table was phenomenal. Service and ambience were also very good. We will definitely be back!

Food was good as usual but many less choices than before the pandemic. It ended up being a very costly meal so it isn’t a place I would go to very often but if you are celebrating a special occasion it is ok to splurge.

The Century House is reliably an excellent dining experience. The chef is top notch and the servers are very professional and attentive. The atmosphere is conducive to quiet conversation. We have enjoyed many dinners over many years and have never been disappointed.

The shrimp cocktail was great. The sauce was Spivey like I like it. The salads were large even though we ordered the smaller portion. The entrees- surf and turf and lobster tail were excellent. Service was exceptional

Great time. Doug took great care of us and delivered exceptional service. The Upside down FOS meatball was interesting but not a winner. Everything else however was delicious and the cocktails were poured perfectly.

The service was excellent. Food was almost perfect. The Kobe steak was tender and delicious. But the pot pie special my wife ordered was pretty dry. Wasn't awful, but have had far better elsewhere. That said, would still come here again as our past experiences here have always been good.

Two bad experiences for a one-night stay. The first was the hostess in the restaurant, Jenn. We were early for our dinner reservations, and we simply stated we were there but early, and we are going to have a drink in the bar before dinner. She snapped at us saying "THERE ARE NO SEATS AT THE BAR". We then asked if we could sit at one of the empty tables in the bar, and she was extremely rude with her response. The girl who waited on us at the table in the bar was absolutely lovely and did not get her name, but she was fabulous.
The second one was this morning before checking out, the rudest person where breakfast was served. There were paper cups and then above paper cups there were glass mugs. My friend with me took one of the glass mugs, since we were not leaving that area with it. The attendant started yelling at us for taking the glass mug "they are just for show" she stated, but there was no sign to forbid us from using this. When we questioned, she held her hand up to us and said "let me talk, don't interrupt me". I could not wait to get home, and my friend leaving on the rest of her journey. Furthermore, I think for a very expensive lobster dinner, salad should come with your meal. So overall, we were very disappointed overall in the Century House
