I had a great experience here. I ordered the basic petite filet and baked potato, but it was really well cooked and everything tasted great. Service was excellent. They have live jazz music, but you can sit in the restaurant away from the music, which I liked. I could have a decent conversation and not have to yell.

Reservations honored. Food consistently good. We had the pork chop and the Rib Steak. Both were excellent. The service was outstanding as usual. We asked for bacon bits, chives and sour cream for the baked potato. All were fresh rather than the canned commercial stuff. I asked for freshly brewed coffee and that is what I got. We eat here...

This restaurant seem to change management and it's menu rather frequently. This time for the WORST! The service was unpolished. .. definitely needing etiquette training. There is no follow up you are just forgotten about. We will never go back.... please don't waste your money or a great night out at this restaurant. .. there are so many great restaurants... More

Easy parking Attentive service Live music most nights -- jazz, pop etc Long bar with good service. Menu is good -- steaks are priced competitively and all good. I entertain clients Worth a try if you are looking for steakhouse standard menu

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
