The last time I was there, the food was great, but the service was not what it used to be. I had ordered the Queen's Cut Prime Rib-medium rare and my friend ordered the same Queen's Cut, but medium well on an end piece. When the order came, I got the medium well while my friend got the end cut... More

We visited Pete Millers when we were taking my son to move into Northwestern. Met up with some friends from long ago and enjoyed a very nice meal at Pete Millers. The ambiance is old style steakhouse and the food is not cheap but we all had a meal worthy of the price.

Pete Miller's steaks are excellent, creamed spinach not so much. They serve up a wide variety of steaks and trimming. A great place to go on a weekend evening just for a burger and some good (free) music along with dinner. Pricey though.

Staying in Chicago but traveled out to Evanston (30 minutes) to have dinner with family. This was by far one of the best experiences we have had. Our waiter was first-class. Our meal, delicious and the restaurant had a small jazz band with a female vocalist. Great atmosphere. $$$-$$$$ but well worth it. Would love to go back again some... More

I went there for a large birthday party gathering and the atmosphere was great! If it wasn't for the amazing people in our group I would have left this place half way through dinner. Our waiter was great but the manager that was helping my friends was not very friendly and pretty confrontational in front of the entire crowd regarding... More

We dined here after a Northwestern football game on a Saturday evening. The chopped salad featured avocado--there was one small piece and soggy, wet, salad drenched in dressing for $12.99. It tasted bad and was a poor way to begin the meal. The crab cakes were burnt and had a crust on them so they were impossible to cut with... More

My Family and I recently visited Pete Miller's to celebrate my Father's Birthday and my Sister's Wedding Anniversary. We were treated with Live Jazz, delicious Food, and friendly Service. If you like Steak, I HIGHLY recommend the 22 ounce Prime Minister Prime Rib with a glass of Red Wine! Cheers!

Surprisingly, on a Monday night, at dinner, I was told there were no tables available (apparenlty the less-formal room was booked for an event). As a result, we were sat at a table in the bar area. While someone came fairly quickly to take our drink order and food order, after the food was delivered, we literally were not contacted... More

Nice decor and clean. The live jazz combo was too loud for my liking so I asked for a table as far from the music as possible which only helped a little. It was music to my ears when they took a 30 minute break! I had the prime rib and it was excellent. The large portion can easily be... More
