Good location close to everything. The appearance from the street could be improved. The staff was friendly and efficient, the bar was well stocked. Be prepared the prices are at theon the high end. With the prices I was disappointed in with no salad or veggies with the meal. That being said no one in our group was unhappy with... More

My niece and nephews flew into town to spend the weekend with me. My husband had suggested this restaurant as one is a Vegetarian and the rest of us could go either way Seafood or Steaks. We started off with the Fried Calamari as a shared appetizer and it was more than enough for 4 forks. (We had stopped at... More

This is really the only high end steakhouse in Evanston. It's expensive, but really does have quality cuts of meat that are always prepared to order. They have sea foods and other things on the menu as well. Go for a special occasion.

Christi always answered my emails and questions, while Terry was the perfect manager with us that evening. We are still getting complients on the great evening. A good... More

Not only can you get good food - from a burger to a steak - but you also get very nice atmosphere and decent jazz. A little upscale for a college town but may be a good way to avoid too much noise and student traffic.

I have eaten at Pete Miller's many times over the years with friends and my husband. I have NEVER had anything other than an excellent meal, from appetizer thru dessert. The valet service is a big plus, as well. The only reason I give it a four is because it has bit of a problem acoustically in the front dining... More

Four of us were seated in a "private" "U" shaped booth in the back room. It was delightfully comfortable, the waitress was attentive to our later theater engagement, and the food choices were extensive and well-prepared--from escargot to the steaks!

Good food and service and a good bar. Live jazz can be a problem if you want quiet, but then just make sure you sit in the other room. Live jazz can be a plus if like jazz and good steak and good burgers.
