Great family occasion

Visited with family over Easter weekend. From a 2yr old to Mam, everyone was delighted at their meals and the service from Martin, our waiter. He couldnt have done anymore for us and was pleasant and polite from start to finish, a credit to himself. The steaks were well cooked and as always served... read more

My partner and I went as a celebratory Thursday lunch after he finished his University project and I'd handed in some coursework. It was completely empty but the welcoming staff were just that. We were quickly seated (with no-one to work around) and were given choice of the entire selection of tables. We sat by the window overlooking the canal... More

Not to badly... More

As travellers from North Wales to Birmingham we booked into Millers and Carter, as we do every-time we visit. What a fabulous restaurant it is! Caters for all tastes and all occasions! The food is wonderful, cooked very well to order and is always piping hot. The atmosphere is very good and the drinks are simply perfection, just try their... More

I never get tired of this place, and I love the fact it's on my doorstep. The steaks are ridiculously good, the best I've ever had. The Rib Eye is usually my choice, and they always cook it to perfection. If you're looking for a great place to eat Steak in Birmingham, you've found it.

We had not heard of Miller and Carter, so with our 3 year old grandson in tow we went to try the restaurant. We were seated directly , althought there were... More

Took my team out for a few drinks and food and we decided on here as a 'walk up'. Service was overall ok, bar the very young waiter questioning my choice of cooking style of my steak which was quite bizarre, and then the mixed platter starters weren't warm or hot where they should be.. It was all just tepid.... More

Away from home on business with a colleague (and friend) and we didn't fancy the 'usual' hotel or chain food restaurant experience and spotted this fabulous steak house next to our hotel. We entered to a buzzing atmosphere, the restaurant was full, even though it was a Tuesday eveing, clearly very popular. Service was excellent from the minute we walked... More
