This restaurant was impressively bad. I'm assuming the good reviews on here are because the bar area seemed fun. Service was crazy slow and food was overpriced. We got wings and a sandwich - it took 30 minutes. To top it all off our sandwich came out cold. We asked them to warm it up and they basically put it... More

My friend and I were looking for a good simple place to eat. She enjoyed her steak sandwich (it wasn't shaved it was an actual piece of steak!) and I had the fish and chips which were good. We didn't like the cheesecake we got for dessert, but that wouldn't stop us from eating there again. The building is at... More

Delicious food and a fun atmosphere. We came back after dinner for trivia night (Tuesdays). We didn't win but it was a fun way to spend an hour and a half.

Not many places a bloke on his own (on business) feels comfortable having a simple meal and a drink. Don't want a fancy restaurant Don't really want to sit alone at a table and have waitress service. Do appreciate being able to mingle and chat with locals and barman, whilst eating drinking and watching a ball game. Average menu. Simple... More

Authentic grill-pub located in downtown. Very old flooring and brick walls/support columns add to the charm. Simple menu but tastes great. Good selection of beverages. Prompt friendly service. Food was great.

We had planned to try another restaurant, but it was closed. We did a search of near by restaurants and Century Grill came up. We are lucky we tried it. We were greeted right away and seated in one of the booths tucked away to the side. The rustic wood beams and lighting made it a cool atmosphere. Our waiter... More

Stopped in here for dinner with another couple and ordered what seemed to be pretty basic food. It took almost an hour from the time we sat down till the time our food arrived and half the dinners were cold. Apparently they were sitting in the kitchen quite a while. We had to flag down our waiter to get drinks... More

Have been here before and the food has always been good. Tonight the roast beef was horrible. There was so much fat in it that finding the meat was very difficult. Downright gross sandwich. We were in a time crunch so ordering something else was not an option. My friend could hardly find the steak on her steak and blue... More

After seeing pictures of the food on Yelp. I didn't want to go to this place, did not look appealing. However it was close from our hotel from work and I met friends here. Smells like it needs a good cleaning. Bartender was not friendly to me by any means. Took forever to come over because he was too busy... More

Historic building converted to a restaurant, love the old thick wooden beams, decor and ambiance. Friendly waitress, wonderful and nicely paced dinner. Husbands steak was cooked medium as ordered, deliciously seasoned. Accompanied with garlicky smashed potatoes and assorted vegetables. I ordered the haddock fish fry, with fries and cole slaw. Very good. Local APA beer was superb as well as... More
