2.0 star rating 11/20/2016 We had a 7pm reservation on saturday night....which was honored timely....so far so good. Thereafter it went downhill.....our waiter did not ask all at the table for their drink orders...our waiter was assigned too many tables to provide good service to any of them...the kitchen was serving people who were seated after us their food long...

A great relaxed and sophisticated bar area with good seating and TV's for watching sports or just casual dining. Good quality meal and easy attitude. Not many vegetarian options which is disappointing.

If you want a classic Chicago steakhouse experience, this is a great option. Seafood choices were only OK. My shrimp dish was a bit tough and greasy. Best part of the meal was the bread.

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

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.
