Millers is a must stop for me when I travel to Chicago. The food is excellent, and the beverages are wonderful. The prime rib was generous, tender and tasty; and the carrots were incredible! Millers has a vibrant atmosphere and the wait staff and bartenders are always polite, friendly and attentive!

Millers Pum is apparently known for its ribs but I happened in off the street and wanted a burger and what a burger it turned out to be. I would definently rate the hamburger at Millers as the best I have ever had. I can't wait to try the ribs on my next trip to Chicago. Oh, the service should also get a mention as being nothing less than sensational as one should expect from an establishment of this caliber.

I'm trying to figure out why all these restaurants have a claim to have "Famous Award Winning..." food to their names. Obviously, one of them is ribs. So after seeing this place being a former Citysearch "Best of..." winner, I had to come and try for myself to see if their 'Famous" ribs were the real deal. Walking in I can tell that the place was spacious, equiped with a long bar and an upstairs area. The place is surrounded with attractive vintage stained glass and with pictures with famous local and national celebrities on their wall. Their menu is pretty basic, mainly showcasing thier BBQ (which was the reason i was there). I ordered the Ribs & Chicken which was a 1/2 slab of wet rubbed ribs with a chicken leg and thigh and a portion of corn on the cob and a plate of fries. But after the first bite of the ribs, I thought to myself, "What's so famous about this?" Yes, they were good, but not to the extent I'd call them 'Famous". It's like I can cook my own ribs at home and brush on some store bought sauce on them. Good and not too dry, but nothing that I personally would give an award to. The chicken was nice and moist which I enjoyed. Actually, I expected fried chicken or chicken wings, but I enjoyed the surprise. The fries were surprisingly my favorite. Not too salty thick cut fries that were fried just right. Of course who could turn down the corn. I just wished they served a whole ear of corn and not some small portion that was boiled and not grilled. It's not a bad place to have lunch at. But personally I think it's becoming more touristy (hense the big cabinets of t-shirts and caps you see when you walk in) and I've had better ribs elsewhere. Come for lunch, but don't expect the ribs to be anything "Famous".

Pros: Ribs, food is good, plenty of seats at the bar, close to the adams and wabash Brown line stop or the Monroe Red line, decor

Cons: parking, failed to see the "famous" part

The first time I came to Miller's, I had been out for a late night at The Art Institute with friends. We couldn't get the bartender's attention because he was avoiding eye contact with anything that could be mistaken for humanity. It was 10:00 and my girlfriend and I wanted a decent meal that involved martinis, so we hung in there and waited for a table. The hostess eventually took up upstairs. Nice tablecloths, small tables.

The food was OK. Sure, I liked the Canadian ribs, but I've had better. I think the salad was good - it seemed fresh and they went nuts with crumbled bleu cheese, something I can admire, as my body consists of 40% bleu cheese.

Service was very good, but I keep thinking about their menu. Miller's has somehow merged a chophouse menu with a Greek menu. The Sous Chef must have four arms, and a multiple personality disorder to manage this trick. I'm not saying it's bad...I am saying it's... um, *special*. Shine on, you crazy diamonds. Now I know where to go for French Onion Soup and Mousaka. Props for the creme brulee. From me, that's not saying much because I've never met one I truly despised.

I probably should give them a second try. The place was jam-packed when I visited and maybe not all of their customers feel like a component on an assembly line.

Maybe if we were buzzed, my dining companions and me would have thought Miller's seemed homey in a pub-ish sot of way? I could try that next time. I'll get my buzz on if someone can tell the bartender that we could use some lube. If I have to track him down with a Geiger counter, I'm outta there.

Pros: Open late, good for the blue cheese, chophouse/Greek dining crowd.

Cons: Noisy, rushed a bit, the server forgot some helpful things (eating utensils, the wine we ordered, napkins)...

We went for the ribs and the service. The ribs were good, in that the sauce was great, but the ribs themselves were not very tender. Coleslaw was runny, and my salad was just average. The service was good and very friendly. The staff were commenting alot on what was on the television. The place has a great atmosphere nad is charming. However, with average food, I can't highly recommend the place.

Getting to Miller's is high on my list every time I visit Chicago. The food is always superb, and the staff truly goes out of their way to provide exceptional service. Case in point - my wife and I dined upstairs one evening, thoroughly enjoyed our meal, and headed back to our hotel. Half way down the block from the restaurant, the Maitre-D finally caught up with us and returned my wife's gloves, which she had inadvertently left on the table. We thanked him profusely, but he just shrugged it off, as though he didn't go above and beyond the call. He left an impression just as positive to me as Miller's mouth watering Filet (which I highly recommend, if you don't choose the ribs). These folks make great food, and treat their patrons like honored guests. Miller's is the complete package.

Cons: can be somewhat smokey; small downstairs dining area (for those unable to climb stairs)

This place is reasonable, and has great service! The Greek Salad was absolutely amazing, I will be visiting this restaurant again.

We stopped at Miller's after some sightseeing, and found it to be a bit dark and extremely cold (temp-wise). The patrons all seemed to be tourists. We both ordered salads, and thought they were good but nothing to rave about. I guess I was expecting more, given the very high rating. Maybe the bar scene is better, but bring a jacket!

WHITE BEER is the way to go... the BBQ was smoky and tasty... the prime rib was not bad, either. But oh my god, the white beer was to die for.... you definitely need to get some when you are in town next time. White beer white beer... did I mention their white beer is excellent?

Our first evening in Chicago, we dined at Miller's because it was highly recommended by several others. The service was excellent. Although I thought the ribs were overrated, I still enjoyed my meal. The portions were huge. I would consider dining there again!

This great Chicago instiution has been serving the average man an celebrities for over 50 years. Many movie stars such as Humphrey Bogart & Frank Sinatra have left autograph pictures that are proudly displayed on the walls. Along with many local & national sports celebs. Its unique blend of bar/restaurant sitting next to the historic Palmer House Hilton Hotel is essential for all residents and tourists alike to visit. The beer, wine and liquor selections are outstanding. The food is not bad either with tremendous Baby Back Ribs. They have a combination Half-Slab of Ribs an BBQ chicken leg platter that is to die for. If you are planning a Chicago trip, stop by. You won't be dissapointed.

Good food in the right portions. This close to the theatres and symphony hall, it's not formal (or quiet) but it is the right place to start or finish the evening.

We ate at Millers Pub for the first time this past weekend and had a wonderful experience. I wish we had gone in there years ago!! The ambience is great as that is important. Then we had the greatest service while eating fresh, hot food. I believe the prices are very fair, especially for this area. This is a great place to eat and they have a new customer for life.

Miller's honors reservations. We arrived early and were given seating withing 5 minutes.
With all the excellent choices, my friend ordered the meatloaf with mashed potatoes and
gravy ( born in the farm belt, it's hard to turn down a "try" at the basics ). I chose the ribs.

Both of us received nice, tasty, well portioned servings. I tasted a piece of the meatloaf and
was impressed. This is more than your ordinary, truckstop fair. The ribs were great as
usual. Our server was attentive and the food arrived in good time. I'll will be at Miller's again
on my next Chicago trip.

After a long day of doing tourist activities and taking in a Cubs game, we were ready for a sit-down meal and wanted good food and a nice atmosphere for a reasonable price. Miller's Pub didn't disappoint. We had steak and baby-back ribs, bith of which were excellent. Good, lean cuts of meat cooked to perfection. I highly recommend it.
