Maybe the "real" dining area is different, but my party took a table in the bar area, where we paid full Pete Miller prices, but had horrific service. We had to ASK for silverware, waters, bread - all of the standard dining items. Our

I will not rant as I wish to but lets just say we will never go back to petes again the wait staff was so horrible to us and when we complain to the manager she told us maybe we should not come back! Which was a shock sence we had such bad service from not getting greeted at the table for 30 mins after setting down to a waitress that was so rude and slow with drinks and food we did not even tip her. The food was cold and presentation well there was none we have gone there many time and the service is allways fair to poor but this was one for the record books.

I can only speak to the Pete Miller's in Wheeling...

Food is fantastic! Highly recommend their horseradish encrusted fillet mignon or fantastic pork chop with apple chutney. Best pork chop and fillet I have ever had. Simply put, Pete Miller's does a fantastic job with beef and pork; however, not so much with fish. Fish at Pete's is average, at best.

This is a great place to bring a date due to the nice intimate surroundings. Even when completely packed and with a live Jazz band playing, you can hold a conversation without having to shout. I am continuously talking this place up with co-workers who are looking to have a special diner with their special someone.

Fantastic and extremely knowledgeable wait staff; though some, as noted in other reviews, can be a bit pretentious. However, this does not overshadow the dining experience.

Pete's has yet to disappoint! Oh yes - they make a great Manhattan too!

Average dinner price per person: $20 - $45

The food is great.With a few exceptions, the service in the main dining room is terrible.A majority of the waiters have a chip on their shoulders and act very snobby, unpleasant, and condescending.We have gone there many times and have experienced the same thing with various waiters.They act pissed off when you don't order alcohol and the most expensive thing on the menu.The table bussers are quite friendly though.The service in the Billiards room is much better because the people are friendly and hospitable.That said,the restaurant is good over all.

I love the new Pete Miller's in Wheeling so much I had to try this one. I was not disappointed. Everything was great. The dark 1940's supper club feel, live jazz, big steaks really nice people and huge martinis with great big olives. Next time I'm in Evanston I will definately stop back at Pete Miller's!

Pete Miller's is a great restaurant in a prime downtown Evanston location. Parking can be difficult on busy weeknights and weekends. The steaks are very good here. Make sure to ask them to bring out the tray of meat. They have some impressive cuts of beef. Some nights they also have live jazz in the front part of the restaurant by the bar.

Bring your wallet, an appetite, and tolerance. My steak was awesome, my fellow diners were not as happy with their steaks, both were too dry. I'm a huge fan of side dishes, and they have some great ones here, food=good. I was surprised that the clientele could get food up to their mouths with their noses so high, its steak and jazz, lighten up! I have a huge musical repetoire but is not quite the jazz @ Green Mill. If you drop some major $ and sit down for a great steak and mash dinner... if you catch bluegrass nite, it ain't steak and jazz. No Stan Kenton/ Marcus Pincus here. Between the high price and wavering musical talent, I wasn't impressed. No need to go back. My girlfriend, "The mash was yummy. Can we go out for drinks now." Me:"Sure where's a cash station." The guys: bring your wallet.

I just moved out of Chicago in February, and had to go to Miller's the night before I left to say goodbye. I still go back to visit Miller's. And they still know to put a Guiness in front of me without saying. It's the kind of place you can go and relax any night of the week, or go and party. Great jazz, wine, and drinks, their bar food is out of this world, especially their tune medallions and bisque (dip the bread in it).

What a disappointment!

The lobster bisque was, at best, ordinary. Two, of our party of four, had their meat done improperly (one underdone while the other was overdone) a sin in a place that calls itself a steakhouse. When the server was shown the underdone portion his comment was it doesnt look underdone to me as if he were paying the bill. The meat that was done to the right temperature was neither flavorful nor particularly tender, two attributes that would be routinely expected in steak whose price was approaching $30!

Mortons and Gibsons are in the same price range and will see my money when Im next in the market for an exceptional steak.

this is a really unusual place. it's got so many elements that make it great. A cool, clean, sharp billiards room, a great stage with amazing jazz music (which is free!) two great bars and amazing food. some of it is expensive, some isn't but all that i've tried at pete miller's is truly great. it's a great night out.

Editorial from

The Scene
On weekends, this restaurant's central bar bustles with diners waiting for tables; a tin roof, low ceilings and nightly live music add to the convivial din. Wood wainscoting, crown molding and brass-studded leather…
