On a quick trip to the Danvers area we met up with friends for a quick lunch. The receptionist at the Hotel recommended the Century House for good lobster rolls as that is where the locals go. When we got there at 11:30 we were promptly seated and all ordered the famous lobster roll. What a delight. So much better... More

We stop in to the Century House Restaurant in Peabody several times a year. It is one of our favorites. They start you off with a large glass of water & a basket of crackers with a side of delicious bean dip. Then come the rolls pecan & plain. They are known for their pecan rolls. Once you have placed... More

My stepfather and I ordered the filet mignon and both were cooked perfectly. Baked potato was delicious and cole slaw was good. Drinks were great. We loved our desserts, which were fudge brownie and oreo pie. Our waitress Dawn was A+ - everything a waitress should be. We will come back again when we are in the neighborhood. Thank you... More
