I live in Alpine and have eaten at the Century Bar and Grill several times. I also have over 20 years experience in all facets of restaurant work, from cooking and managing to running wait staff and training employees. The thing that really stands out at the Century B&G is the attentiveness of the staff. Running a good restaurant is all about covering the details, and that's where this place shines. Chef Tammi's approach of making accessible dishes with a South Western flair works really well, and is extremely tasty. The wait staff is always attentive without being pushy, and they know the menu and the wine list very well. You can also tell that these folks approach their work as a team, and it's not unusual for the managers to help bring out food or for the Chef to visit with a table that has a specific question or comment.
It's rare to find these qualities and this level of service in a small town like Alpine, and to me that reflects the commitment of the management and staff to taking the best care of their patrons that they can. If you're in Alpine or the Big Bend and you're looking for an outstanding dining experience, do yourself a favor and stop in to the Century Bar and Grill.
