We always visit Pete Miller's when we visit our son at Northwestern. The service is good and the food is terrific.

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 for a relaxed-classy drinks and nosh date.

Service a tad slow but the food I had was awesome. The steak literally melted in my mouth as it was so tender.

Late valentines celebration. My wife and I went to Pete Millers steakhouse to celebrate valentines days (late). The service is great and food to die for. We both has steak filet trios. It was more food then both of us could eat. Food service and drinks are top notch.

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. Notable wine list, great friendly and unstuffy service all with some great piano music playing... More

Stopped by at the end of a lovely Valentine's Day to hear some music. Most seats at the bar have a decent view of whoever's performing, and you can hear well. Drinks are a little pricey, but then there's no cover, so worth it. Limited draft beer selection, good wine selection, great cocktails.

This place just doesn't seem to disappoint -- ever. Food is epicurean, service is Par Exsalonce, and ambiance is quiet and tasteful.

We had a perfect evening here. Great steaks, wonderful atmosphere, and a jazz pianist who made the evening fly by. Next time we'll have to make it there for their live jazz groups.

We went for a holiday dinner, three women. The front of the house ignored us, seated others before us even though we had a reservation. We ended up seating ourselves in the bar. Food was great, wait staff too. When we left, the same two gentleman in the front of the house ignored us. We reached out to the restaurant... 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.
