We recently had a really nice breakfast with friends at Century House. All 4 of us were very happy with our experience there. We did not have a reservation (yes, you can make a reservation), but did not have to wait more than a few minutes to be seated – in the pub for the first time. We were seated... More

Our group went to have breakfast on the recommendation of our hotel. There were lots of people there, which is usually a good sign. We were seated pretty quickly for a group of 11 and serving delicious hot coffee. The menu had lots of choices, but the one that mentioned one of the specialties...a pecan roll caught our attention.

A real locals' place. There's a more formal dining room upstairs; we had dinner in the downstairs pub. Two very crowded bars and an adjacent small dining room. Very loud and a bit chaotic with the Lotto players buying and cashing tickets competing for aisle space with the waitstaff. People waiting for tables stare you down while you're enjoying the...

I have been a customer for a number of years and it is still my favorite local restaurant. The food is plentiful and is cooked and seasoned perfectly. My favorite is usually seafood, but I have enjoyed many of their other meals as well. The bean dip with crackers is a great starter and I also enjoy the salads. It... More

We had breakfast here and it was basic fare at a reasonable price. The vast majority of the patrons were seniors, so rowdy kids probably would not fit in.

The eggs Benedict is delicious. We loved the homefries and occasionally we order homemade beans. The service is great and the waitstaff very personable. Lots of booths and areas for bigger parties. They have early birds at night if you can't make it during the day.

Thank zzreal
