At Centennial, our passion is craft beer and our focus is simple: to celebrate craft beer. Beer can bring people together on a common ground and has the ability to create a community. Beer can elevate food. Beer is culture.

We feature 56 taps with a selection of 36 rotating craft beers. In addition to our taps, we feature a high volume of beers available in bottles and cans, as well as a curated selection of craft spirits and wines.

Centennial also features chef-driven food with an emphasis on craft beer. The menu focuses on beer pairings and incorporating beer as an ingredient. Centennial also features smoked, char grilled, and wood-fired ingredients.

    Great local spot. Tons of options on draft. Food was good but a little cold (think it was sitting in the back for a bit). Will definitely be going back

    PHENOMENAL in EVERY WAY! The team of associates here are 200% customer care focused: friendly, professional, helpful, knowledgeable, and they go above & beyond to make sure you are pleased. AWESOME beer selection, menu, and ambiance, and large patio area. This is a MUST first time visit, and then make it a regular place to eat/drink.

    We were there early on Saturday evening and the restaurant was fairly empty. The food was very good but the service was slow. Outdoor seating is not that fun due to heavy traffic/exhaust gas right on La Salle drive.

    They have an enclosed outdoor patio that allows dogs- don't know of any other place in Chicago that has this! We went for brunch on a rainy Sunday and still sat outside with our dog on the adorable patio. They don't have too many breakfast options but we had 3 of them and they were absolutely delicious. Great service, great time, great food, will definitely be returning!

    We frequent Centennial. It is a never fail establishment. You don't have to yell across the table to have a conversation. You won't find "bro's" doings shots at this mixed demographic environment. The decor is well done, not too casual and not too River North. Little to no Staff turnover results in amazing service. None of the servers have that aloof or "emo" attitude...they are incredibly friendly and love their job. Selection of craft beverages changes frequently, and we are never disappointed with the options. Plenty of samples to choose from before settling in on your choice. Or explain what you like, and they will pick the best item from the menu for you.

    We had planned to order drinks and dinner, but after ordering a beer when we sat down, our waiter did not come by for another 30 minutes. At that point, when he did come back, we decided to just get the check and go somewhere else.

    Centennial is an extremely rare find for the River North neighborhood. Great value for food and drinks. We spent less than $30 on three beers and a pretzel (Wednesday special) and had a chance to sit outside under their covered patio on LaSalle. Beers were good but pretzel was a pass, too overly salty and the beer cheese served on the side was really soupy. It's a pretty perfect after-work spot for a couple of cool-off drinks.

    Great place to grab some brews. Lots of beer options and food is very good as well. Some of the 2 person tables are very small. Not the best place to grab cocktails. Had the old fashion and did not taste good at all, but otherwise still a great place for food and beer.

    Our experience was incredible at Centennial. Our waitress was wonderful, came to the table just the right amount of times, made me a special drink since I told her I wasn’t a big drinker, and had great energy overall. On top of that, the food was 10/10 as well as its presentation. We were huge fans of the Pretzel with beer cheese, and both of our dishes from the brunch menu were stellar as well. We will absolutely 10,000,000% be back and I’m happy to have a new spot to recommend to friends and clients!

    Good beer selection, especially for bottles and cans, but not as many unique draft options. They’re not serving flights which was disappointing. Would go back but will wait until they have flights again. Food was good but the portions could have been better - no sides included for most of the entrees.
