Classic old school dinner house. Great food, strong drinks, fair prices in a speakeasy atmosphere. No pretentious millennials swirling wine glasses! Just good food and drink. Jazz band as well. Went back a second night. Had a fantastic shrimp cocktail both nights, and the salmon one night, a steak another. Sat at the bar both times.

The food at Pete's is very good. We have gone a few times a year. Mostly we go because it's one of the few places where you get live music, and we love that. The service is very friendly. We like to go for the brunch buffet and for dinner. Recommended.

I have eaten here before and in their restaurant in Evanston. It was mother's day this time. We had a party of six. Our waitress was relatively new so I was forgiving of some lapses. In general she was very good, polite, attentive, and responsive to our needs. Our table was a little bit of a squeeze for six people... More

Great vibe. All of the appetizers are great. The bread melts in your mouth. Phenomenal steak and they have live jazz on the weekend. Just check online for dates and times.

I've been to Pete Millers many times over the years and used to love the place. The last few times though I noticed that the service is just not as good as it used to be, and that the food quality is inconsistent. What saved it was that they still have live music and room to dance too in the... More

Stuck in a time warp of somewhere between 1958 and 1964, this tired restaurant seems to have failed to move forward in more than decor. The menu features primarily beef and seafood. The beef was mainly straightforward steaks served with an scoop of flavored butter on top. Seafood offerings are prepared with tortured toppings and ingredient combinations. One chicken entree....

Slow and very poor service with arrogant personnel. For a supposed upscale place this is in the bottom 5% of everything I have seen, after dining in and around Chicago, and the rest of the World for over 40 years. Don't go !!! It is not worth it
