Wow they have really let this place die. They need a serious renovation here! Years ago this was a decent spot and their Evanston location isn't bad, but I frankly thought this restaurant was just gross at this point. Time to either close or spend some money to upgrade the restaurant. Couldn't even focus on the food, was too grossed... More

First we must say the food at Pete Miller's is really good. We had crab cake and firecracker shrimp to start both had great flavor. Salads included both Caesar and wedge which are large and full of ingredients. The steaks - mine a bone in ribeye and my wife and friend both had the filet trio were perfectly cooked and... More

Great Steak House but we go there for the music. Great live jazz and you can dance too...to help burn the calories of the delicious dishes all with good service and at prices that do not break the bank. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly people: what else does anybody want?.

Title says it all. Do not go there looking for a cheap frozen meal heated up under a lamp. Freakishly good steaks and sides. Wonderful wait staff.

Not sure about some of the other reviews but this was a fantastic place with great food and great atmosphere! It was a little pricey but hey it's Chicago what do you expect! There was live jazz music on stage in the bar that we could hear while we ate and it was a couple of different people so it... More

Been at this restaurant in the past. Tonight, we were seated near surrounding tables in the bar. We had a reservation, and when seated we felt a cold breeze. Asked to young hosted w glasses if they could turn heat up . She said sure! Three hours later, 3 requests to 3 different staff: our awesome waitress, and the managers... More

First time to Pete Miller's in Wheeling. I have been to the Pete Miller's in Evanston a couple of times and have found the restaurants to be consistent. I really enjoy Pete Miller's. It is a classic steakhouse with good seafood as well. Our steaks were perfectly cooked and the service attentive. Couldn't ask for anything more and will be... More

During visits to Chicago I always save 1 night for US steak. In the Wheeling area, Pete Millers offers specially aged hand cut meats, jazz and a traditional US steakhouse atmosphere. Service was very personalized even though for a private room group reservation. Whist the private room appears to be more of an empty side room, it provided a welcome... More
