We had a variety of appetizers including calamari, mushrooms, shrimp, and scallops. It was cooked perfectly. I then had the filet and it was tender and flavorful. I would definitely return to try even more of their options.

Which is an old-time steakhouse: dark wood, low light, jazz in the background, stiff drinks and big steaks. I love coming here every once in a while, especially on Friday night for live jazz, a great cocktail and some bar food. Absolutely the perfect place...More

A great steakhouse gem outside of the big city of Chicago that offers live music. The firecracker shrimp is amazing for an appetizer. The New York cooked to perfection at Medium Rare that came with a complimentary side choice. The garlic mash hit the spot....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.
