Their signature items are quite good -- and the food in general is good. But the atmosphere is basically that this is a business. It is right next door to the Palmer house -- and they are open late for dinner -- useful to know for travelers.

I'd agree with everyone who finds the atmosphere great and the food average, with the added comment that I'd go again if I were looking for a casual meal or just an evening drink. The "famous" ribs, although they're pretty good, aren't standouts for Chicago. The rest of our dinner was average. But the choice in beers was excellent. And... More

Just a few steps from The Palmer House Hilton- fun atmosphere...order the special for a good, full sized meal. Reasonable prices at this historic pub.

Very cool old pub with lots of history. Very good beer list including many microbrews on tap. I had the "world famous" ribs that were pretty average in my opinion. The prices were pretty good but I think overall there are probably better places to eat. Maybe just a good place to go for a drink and an appetizer.

Old style bar...great place but get there early. We walked in and the placed was slammed. There was over an hour to wait for dinner! To many great places in Chicago to dine. We did have some drinks, the service was good, the bar was 4-5 people deep.

I grew up hearing about Millers and their ribs as well as the great atmosphere. The ribs were good, the atmosphere great. I had three nights in Chicago and I spent all three at Millers with friends and colleagues. Very comfortable, excellent service and a nice mix of locals and travelers.

My husband, son & I ate dinner at Millers Pub while visiting Chicago. We had roast beef on french bread and steak. It was absolutely delicious! The service & atmosphere were just as good. We will definitely return on our next trip to Chicago!

Food was ok overall - reuben sandwich was outstanding. Pot roast - meh. Host staff never did smile; wait staff was adequate.

Awesome food (we had lamb, spinach pie and med spread) pretty cool atmosphere (apparently it was The Place to go to in the 70's) and the service was really good.
