This is a family owned old style restaurant. FULL menu, huge bar, lunch and breakfast. Waitstaff are mature, speak English, don't iPhone, know the menu and are always very pleasant. Solid American food. Nothing fancy, but everything made on site. Excellent Prime Rib, special on Tuesdays, but cooked fresh every morning. Very good breakfasts and the price is right. free... More

My husband and I live in the area but often forget this wonderful restaurant. We wanted to have an early dinner and decided to stop in. Because of the time we were able to take advantage of the early bird weekday specials. I had the glazed salmon and my husband had the rib eye- both were very good. We were... More

The meal and service were quite lovely. Only problem is on Friday they close the main dining area at 9. The lounge stays open longer. Just plan.

I have eaten here for years, whenever I visited family. Took my son here, and we had a great lunch. I had the mussels, there were so many I could not finish them. We started the meal with pitas, and he had the steak tips. Everything was hot, fresh and very tasty. We ended the meal with chocolate mousse.

With an area filled with chain style restaurants the century house has stood the test of time . It had been far to long since my last visit. Met a friend for lunch . It was excellent . Sat at the bar the service was fast and friendly. The menu is something of the past not seen in many places... More

Tuesday is Prime Rib night @ the Century House for $15.95. A very generous sized piece of tender and delicious Prime Rib cooked the way you like it with 2 sides. Bean dip with crackers along with their pecan rolls also included.

Fresh squeezed orange juice, hot coffee was a good start. Crispy hash served hot but the poached eggs were cold. Potatoes were more like french fires but we're hot. Reasonable service, reasonable price.

The food is good but not great. The menu is large so you get a lot of choices. The price is average. The bar area is friendly and most locals eat there.
