We recently held our son's rehearsal dinner in the Billiard Room at Pete Miller's, and we had a great evening. The food was excellent and the waitstaff was attentive without being bothersome. 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.

Valet is always a plus --pleasant hostess --lovely wood dining rooms -separated enough to add intimacy and still feel spacious --decent wine list without outrageous mark up- limited menu, but some unusual choices such as bison--the jazz later in the evening was upbeat and at a perfect sound level --great place for drinks and entertainment in an "old Chicago club"...

This review is based on a visit of four friends and family for a birthday celebration. Because three of my children attended Northwestern, we have visited Pete Miller's in the past. On this night the noise was just intolerable. You couldn't talk with the person seated next to you without shouting. We were initially seated near the live music and... More

My wife and I like to go to Pete Miller's but will probably not on New Year's Eve again. They cut down on the options for the meal and were not able to secure a booth which we asked for beforehand online. They were also out of my wif'e red wine choice. Most likely a busy night was the cause.... More
