Prime rib was outstanding, but go when you are starving. Wish there was a smaller choice as we all were taking home leftovers. Very accommodating to add one more seat for an unanticipated guest. 5 stars

The Century House is a gem of a find. Rare. You feel transported to a more peaceful place. The staff are hospitable, the fireplace is just as warm and soothing, and the food is comforting. All good things, nourishing the body, mind, heart, and soul. Thank you, Century House team.

Way too noisy. Guest could hardly hear me. Stuffed shrimp poorly prepared and presented. Hard to tell shrimp from stuffing.

The food was great as always. The service was not up to par because the server was new and needs some more training.

Our server, John, was attentive and helpful with menu selections. The lighting in the restaurant is beautiful. Fireplace makes the main dining room cozy. Have been going to the Century House for years and it is consistently a great restaurant to visit. Food is delicious. Portions are generous. Top Notch restaurant.

I love this place for its understated elegance and delicious, reasonably priced food. The staff is engaging and attentive and the ambience is lovely with its historic feel and working fireplace. It does get moderately loud with conversation during dinner rush, but that can assuage yourself with a fine craft cocktail or generous pour of wine.

Century House has always been a great experience. Things seemed a little off on Friday October 29. The Hostess was outstanding and managed all very well.

Out waiter seemed a little scattered: people seated after us (2 tables) received water & bread as he introduced himself, but we had to request well after cocktails were ordered.

We had the Lobster Chowder = served hot & delicious.

Prime Rib Sandwich = came warm, very dry and with cold fries. The cheese sauce served with it had started to split, so was grainy. They only had one runner working - who was awesome! - and our orders were on his tray with a couple of salads for another table, so I’m guessing ours were plated and the runner was told to wait for the salads.

I was disappointed as it was the first time I brought a friend there, and not the experience I remember.

Once again, we had a marvelous meal. Shrimp cocktails, salads, lobster tail, perfectly cooked prime rib that literally melts in your mouth, halibut, also cooked perfectly. A great way to spend my birthday 🎉

We were at Century House for our 30th wedding anniversary. The food was delicious. I had lobster Mac and cheese and my husband had broiled lobster tail. Both were delicious and perfectly cooked. The restaurant treated us to a chocolate moose dessert on the house which was also delicious. Our waiter was excellent and helped made our anniversary dinner a special one.

All was perfect on the outside patio. It was noisy while a truck was loading tables. The lobster rolls were delicious. The setting, the food, and the waiter made for a memorable birthday party. We'll certainly return.

Great service and we loved the burger special. The waitress ask us if we want dessert and I told her I’m on WW so she said: we have this terrible cheesecake and also an awful chocolate cake. I was dying laughing. Thanks for making it so easy on me to stick with my calories!!!

We had a 6:45 reservation. We arrived about 7 minutes early. We stood by the door for over 5 minutes with many staff members walking by and saying nothing. When the hostess finally arrived she said oh your 2 minutes early please go sit at the bar and wait, which we did. The cosmo I had was delicious and the bartender was very nice. After waiting over 10 minutes past our reservation time at the bar and seeing at least 4 empty tables we decided to leave. This dinner was for our 25th anniversary and we were looking forward to the Century House. Unfortunately I don't think we will return. They had at least 3 servers on the floor and there was no reason we should have still been waiting for a table.
