About the Century Grill
The Century Grill is located at 318 Pearl Street in a building originally erected as a Freemasons temple in 1901. The Corinthian style structure also served as a livery for carriage horses headed to the lake for transport. During the 1990’s the Macaroni Company occupied the space with the business officially renamed as the Century Grill in 2003. Current owner Kelly DiDomenico, took over the business in 2011 continuing many of the traditions of the original owner plus adding her own special flair. The Century Grill recently won for Best Happy Hour for the third consecutive year as part of the Artvoice Best of Buffalo Awards.
The Century Grill has multiple spaces for your special event with the ability to accommodate small to fairly large parties, including weddings, showers, reunions and bachelor parties. The main first floor restaurant has a large bar that runs nearly the entire left side of the building. An indoor balcony that overlooks the main dining room can be reserved with space for a small buffet and access to our main bar (max. 30-36 ppl). The second floor features a large ballroom with two story tall ceilings in the beaux arts style. This room features space for a full band, dance floor or DJ (max. 110 seated, 350 open). The fireplace lounge is a cozy private space for events (max. 40 ppl).
There is no rental free for our private spaces but do require a minimum food and beverage expenditure of $1,500 for the ballroom, and $750 for the fireplace lounge on weekends. The balcony in the main dining room does not have a minimum expenditure requirement.
