I was with a group of friends enjoying a reunion. One of us who lives locally picked this restaurant because it is not noisy and we were able to converse easily. That was a big plus for me. Service was prompt and attentive. The dinner I had was a bone-in rib-eye with a side of garlicky broccoli. Tasty, yes, but... More

Live Music, Awesome Bar, Fab Food! Try to sit in the bar-front area, there are 2 rooms in the rear ( I don't think you receive the best service)they don't have the atmosphere of the front area. Large food portions and the servers are the very best!

This is a classic steakhouse. No nonsense. Great steaks. Big tables. Great service. It's on the level of The Palm/Smith and Wollensky/Peter Luger. Go. You'll see.

Been awhile since I had been to Pete Miller's. My wife ordered the 7oz filet and I had the 14oz boneless NY Strip. We could have shared the NY strip! (I am still working on the leftovers I took home.) We both ordered our steaks medium. They arrived perfectly cooked, but.... but my wife's filet was dry. My NY strip... More

One of my favourite restaurants in Evanston. I particularly enjoyed hearing the jazz singer whilst dining. Food is very good and I'll certainly be going back next time I'm in Evanston

I enjoyed my usual "treat myself" meal here. The filet was so tender and my first try of butternut squash was too. I sat at the bar and enjoyed my conversation with the female bartender. (Sorry I forgot her name but transplant from Alabama). She was very friendly and attentive. I couldn't resist desert and tried the bananas foster crepe... More

Our most recent visit was to celebrate being empty-nesters....shrimp, salads, steaks, all excellent. Our server could not have been better. It was an early weekend night straight from work and not too busy, but live jazz was a bonus. Pricey, but why drive downtown Chicago and deal with traffic and the parking hassle when we can go local and walk... More

For a fine dining steakhouse, this is nothing special and certainly not deserving of 4-Star steakhouse prices. Service was perfunctory.

Pete Miller's restaurant - very enjoyable experience for a family birthday dinner. The live entertainment was good...not too loud. The wait staff was very good. Food was wonderful. Our meals included steaks, pork chop, ribs, tacos, salads and soup. Everyone really enjoyed their meal - no complaints. Finished the meals by sharing two desserts - Death by Chocolate and Carrot...

The restaurant had a musty smell when we walked in. We lost our appetite completely after we spotted a giant silverfish crawling on the wall above our table. We had to call a waiter over to remove the insect. Manager was not very apologetic about the situation.

Located in downtown Evanston, the original Pete Miller's was founded in 1994 as a tribute to the late Harold "Pete" Miller. The restaurant celebrates his favorite things; swingin' jazz, a good honest drink & a great steak. Join us for dinner or a friendly game of billiards & experience what Pete's has to offer.
