Description: The Century Bar & Grill offers a distinctive menu infused with tradition as well as the forward motion of the modern age. We have crafted the Century dining experience with a variety of flavors: relax in the comfortable and classic Rio Grande Room, indulge a New York mood at our Chef's Tables with a view on the open kitchen, or savor outdoor dining in the Hotel courtyard under West Texas skies in a delightful high-desert climate. The beautifully designed bar, airy yet intimate, serves superb locally brewed beer from Big Bend Brewery as well as unique cocktails. A favorite of locals, The Century Bar & Grill guarantees anyone visiting the Big Bend a friendly Texas welcome with casual elegance, great food, and good drinks.

“Century Bar and Grill Alpine Texas”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Always a surprise to come upon delectable food in elegant surroundings in a small town in the back of beyond as I did here 2 hours north of Big Bend National Park. It's the dining room of the lovely Holland Hotel. It offers an expertly prepared selection of soup, pasta, game, steak and rich tasty deserts. With wine, dinner can run to $50 for one. I ate for $25 by ordering two good sized appetizers and desert. The service is informed and friendly, the atmosphere a throw back to the days when country hotels and their dining rooms were travel destinations. The restaurant is brand new, however, and it remains to be seen whether its high standards can be sustained.

“Restaurant is overrated”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

The food is microportioned and macropriced for what it is. The service is unduly pretentious in an attempt to be upscale with an active, loud bar right near the dining area.It could be good if it evens out its price point, dining options and service however at the moment it is a good place to spend $100 on a micro dinner that is overly hyped.

Eris D, We apologize that you didn't have a good visit here with us and we are striving to make this better in general. We use fresh ingredients and prepare our food daily which in turn may become more costly. For the "Micro portioned food" we tend to our food weighed for price. 8oz Tenderloin, 6oz Chickenfried steak etc; Our appetizer come in two sizes normal and Large. So I'm trying to understand your displeasure with our portion size. We here at the Century Bar and Grill are hoping you give us a second chance to make things better and give us a better understanding of what you are looking for. Thank You for the Feed Back again I hope we can give you a better Experience.

Reviewed January 5, 2013

We did not eat there but had several drinks. I always rate a place on their Bloody Marys. The Century Bar gets an A+!

“Nice bar”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Had a couple of drinks at the bar. It was very kitschy and the staff was really nice. The decor added to the West Texas feel.
