Pete Miller's Seafood and Prime Steak - Wheeling
Great steak house. A realGreat steak house. A real gem when you are in Wheeling, IL.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood foodWe went to the Sunday jazz brunch and were impressed with the fish selection on the buffet. The music was a pleasant addition to a very lovely meal. The staff was an added bonus. Usually at a buffet you receive minimal attention from staff. That was not the case at Pete Miller's. They were very prompt with any of our requests. We are definitely planning on go back soon.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodPete Miller's can't go wrong with their "Special" early bird meals. Before 6:00 p.m. you get a soup/salad, entree, side and dessert for a very reasonible price. We have gone twice now with family members and they love it too. The bread is to die for and the wait staff couldn't be friendlier. Love Pete Miller's.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Seafood and Steak RestaurantIt was my husband and I Wedding Anniversary and we wanted to go to a nice restaurant for dinner. Pete Miller's was just outstanding. It was our first time going there and after having dinner, we will go back again. The food as well as the service was outstanding and would recommend this restaurant to our friends. We both ordered the Prime Rib which was excellent.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this restaurant!I have been here on numerous occasions and never had a bad meal!

Noise levell is usually high, but thiis time we chose to come on a holliday weekennd (Memorial Day) and it was much better.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMTanner a True TreatThe highlight of our brunch experience at Pete Miller's was listening to the amazing sounds of the Jeannie Tanner Trio. Jeannie has a lovely voice and is equally talented playing the piano and the trumpet. The other two musicians were also outstanding.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMcan,t get outThe dining experience as well as the service was all top notch.
The wait staff was well verse in the menu and was very helpful with the items on the menu..
Did not feel rushed for a quick tabel turn over. courses were very well timed .5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunchWent for brunch and had a wonderful experience. Not too crowded. Selection was nice, but not abundant. Loved the asparagus on the omelette station. Also, the beef was nice and tender. Would definitely come back. Kind of disappointed with the desserts, nothing outstanding, hence the 3 star rating. In fact, I wouldn't even bother, not worth the calories.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place to satisfy aA great place to satisfy a craving for steak, and although the steak was pricey, it was outstanding. We dined on the patio and had excellent service as well. My wife had the early evening special which is a three-course meal before 6 pm for a discounted price. Very good as well and almost compensated for my pricey steak. We were impressed!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThiss place has the best everThiss place has the best ever atmosphere and cool jazz/blues. Food is best on north shore and highly recommend the bone in kansas city strip steak.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a a nice place to celebrateIt was a a nice place to celebrate a special occasion. Steaks were excellently prepared.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNumber 39!It was our 39th anniversary and we had already planned awhile back to have dinner with our good friends, Ron and Linda, and it just so happened to fall on that date. So it was very good to have them share that evening with us and we had an excellent time
at Pete Miller's before and we were not dissappointed with the service, the food, and the music.We will definitely return to Pete
Miller's with high expectations as the norm.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat menuwe have been to this restaurant several times. The dinner has always been outstanding. We have even taken relatives for special occastions. There is one problem that I think can be improved. The dinning room is very dark and we were not able to read the menu. The waiter gave us his iphone that had a flash so we could read it. We would recommend this restaurant !!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was wonderful as always.Food was wonderful as always. Back dining room is much better experience than the front of the house.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to dine inI love Pete Miller's. The food is pricey but worth every penny.
They have live jazz and blues as well as Televisions so
One could catch the Hawks game.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch was excellent exceptBrunch was excellent except for the waffles. A little too "Chewy". everything else was well presented and very delicious. The server did an excelent job attending to my group.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful jazz artists always.Wonderful jazz artists always. The Sunday Jazz Brunch is GREAT.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were pleasantly surprisedWe were pleasantly surprised by the warm lighting and inviting decor. Our server was very good - asking if we wanted to order right away or if we wanted to wait to finish our app. Surprising since we had a 6:15 pm reservation and the place was booked solid that evening.
Warm bread was amazing - it was soft with a crisp almost grilled flavor on the bottom as if a lot of butter was placed in the pan before baking.
The calamari was a very substantial portion, good flavor but not quite crispy enough. The cocktail sauce with horseradish was much better than the marinara which lacked flavor.
Pistachio crusted grouper was very bland. Bone-in rib-eye was great. Scallop appetizer was tasty. Garlic mashed potatoes were delicious!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPete Miller's always deliversPete Miller's always delivers a quality experience.....excellent food, great service, pleasant atmosphere.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and polite excellentGreat food and polite excellent service. The jazz band was fantastic. We took our 7:30 PM reservation for dinner and ended up closing the place! We loved the experience.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Steaks, Appetizers, & ServiceEverybody who we dealt with; starting with the car valet, then the hostess, and in particular, our waitress, treated us as though we were special guests. They were all smiling and had pleasant words. Our waitress Judy was prompt, attentive, courteous, and cheerful; and she was also knowledgeable of the menu selections. Even the other staff smiled and said hello when I went to the Men's room. We had Steaks, baked potato, creamed spinach, and an appetizer (quesadillas de camaron). Everything was not only delicious but prepared perfectly. Frankly, I can't remember when my wife and I have had a better dining experience.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Steak PlaceI love Pete Miller's! The manager is very attentive and staff is wonderful. I love the twilight menu and my husband loves the Friday night buffet! I cannot say enough about how wonderful this place is.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food Grate AmbienceExcellent food and Service all the staff was very friendly and kind I will recommend to all my friends and family Love it !!!!!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFriday Night Buffet is Awesome!Friday night and the Seafood/Prime Rib buffet. A dream come true. There is a great salad bar with a variety of toppings. A pasta station where they'll create a custom pasta dish. The seafood selections include fried calamari, fried cod, mussels, and clams. Cold seafood options:cold snow crab, cold boiled shrimp in the shell, bay scallop/shrimp ceviche, and oysters on the half shell. Meat table: pork loin and prime rib. The side dishes: macaroni/cheese and mashed potatoes. The dessert table the least appealing: cupcakes, brownies and others. After such a amazing buffet, who has room for dessert?4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough typically ratherAlthough typically rather pricey, the half-off brunch Groupon made this meal very affordable. Great service as always, and the prime rib was done perfectly medium-rare. Love it!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWas happy to find that ourWas happy to find that our table location request through Open Table was fulfilled !4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe steaks are delicious,The steaks are delicious, but overall the entrees are a bit overpriced. I like to go there for the drinks almost more so than the food. It's a good place to go to the bar, have a few drinks and listen to the live music, usually jazz. The patio is nice when the weather is warmer.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy! Twilight menu was vastYummy! Twilight menu was vast and reasonable. My husband claims the blue cheeses dressing was amazing. My favorite was the house salad.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFriday Night BuffetWe've eaten many times at Pete Miller's, and LOVE their food. This was our first time trying out their Friday night buffet. Thee were lots of options: salads, a made-to-order pasta station, clams, oysters, snow crab legs (steamed & chilled), various ways of eating shrimp, a carving station, and many of the usual side dishes Pete Miller's has available from their regular menu. In addition, there is quite a selection of yummy desserts available. Some of the entrees suffer from over-heating - a typical buffet problem. But unlike most buffets, Pete Miller's quickly replaces food when supplies run low and their condiments include fresh melted butter (for the crab legs), creamy horseradish for the prime rib, cocktail sauce, etc.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat First ImpressionI thought the place was excellent! We enjoyed the Friday Night Seafood Buffet and were extremely pleased. Our server was great and helped make our first visit even better. His name was Derek and he was always refilling our water and checking in despite the crowd getting bigger and bigger as the night went on. We will definitely be back to visit Pete Miller's. The food was great, the ambiance was perfect and they made a very good first impression on us. Keep up the good work!!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOur First Visit to Pete Miller'sNice place to eat. The buffet for the most part was abundant and delicious. Very nice ambiance in the restaurant and bar. We drove an hour and a half to get there and had a nice meal. Was disappointed with the crab legs completely (and I love crab legs--which was part of the reason we went) but the ribs,shrimp, calamari, and prime rib were great. While we had a wonderful family meal if I knew then what I know now I would not have made the drive. The wait staff person we had though was excellent!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEvening at Pete MillersOur service was very friendly and attentive. The food was great and everything was cooked exactly as ordered. My Kansas City Rib Eye was tremendous and the Jumbo Shrimp DeJonge my wife ordered was excellent.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband's prime rib wasMy husband's prime rib was delicious, according to him. My lamb chops were quite salty, but tender. I felt the calamari, fried were too chewy. The staff were excellent and the restaurant was very nice. I would go back and try something else.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Jazz and DinnerDelicious dinner! Lovely atmosphere. Really enjoyed the appetizers. Attentive service. Lovely jazz singer/pianist in the lounge. Wish you would turn off the background music so we could hear more of her!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster Brunch was Jazzed!My family and I went for their Easter Jazz Brunch and we were treated very well by the staff and our server. :) We would definitely go again, especially if they provided an activity for the children like Easter Bunny photos or a mini egg hunt or perhaps a little "gift" of candy filled eggs for the kids.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Brunch EVER!The Easter brunch was probably the best money I've spent for a brunch in YEARS! I really hope that they have more brunches like that--guaranteed, we'l be there! The lobster was delish! The crab legs were sweet and satisfying! Prime rib and lamb were tasty! There were plenty of shrimp, clams, oysters and breakfast treats! My husband had a plate from the pasta bar, and it made him very happy! Although neither of us had omelets, they looked wonderful. There was a good selection of fresh fruit and cheeses. Even the desserts were great! The service was on point. No complaints--only praise! How about another brunch like that for Mother's Day, Father's Day, because it is Sunday, any day!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always great experience.As always great experience. It is always risky to recommend a restaurant to new people Everyone was well pleased3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMHave never been disappointedHave never been disappointed by a meal at Pete Miller's and this visit was no exception. Excellent Oysters Rockefeller, and tried a different steak for main course this time, which was also great.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMVery impressed with Friday buffetWe went for the all you can eat Friday prime rib/seafood buffet and it was WONDERFUL!Was pleasantly surprised by the addition of carved lamb, bbq beef ribs, several warm seafood and fish options in addition to the cold, a pasta station and a good variety of deserts. Dressings and sauces tasted homemade.Love being able to start with seafood, then go to meats & sides, on to deserts-we filled a dinner plate and cut up for all 4 of us to taste everything and go back for 2nds-and end with a salad. Priorities! Our son is not a seafood eater-a regular meal would have been a better deal for him, but felt pricing was fair for the rest of us. Had a groupon, but would go again without one.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for the first time forWent for the first time for a special occassion. We really liked the place but the food could have been hotter and the steak was not prepared to order. We would, however,try it again.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMthe food was great as always!the food was great as always! wife took me there for birthday. the manager Greg is always very friendly and warm. our waiter Derek was also outstanding ! love the place3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for excellentGreat place for excellent steak! My husband had the fillet which was phenomenal. I had shrimp de jonghe which was also excellent. Service was excellent and atmosphere was somewhat romantic.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPete Miller's has always hadPete Miller's has always had pretty good food, but when we were there a couple years ago, the service was lacking in a couple respects, awkwardness at the front desk, and a waiter whose attention seemed to veer to the next table while taking our order.
This time our server was an A-plus, and our estimation of the restaurant went up a full grade because of Noel. The place could use a little sprucing up.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very good asThe food was very good as was the service. Both the waitress and the busgentleman was very nice and professional,3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Bad "Jazz"Pete Miller's is known for it's great steaks and live Jazz entertainmen. We had been here before and both were fantastic, so we were very excited to return. It is an hour drive for us, so we don't get there often and were looking forward to an evening full of great steak & Jazz. The food was excellent and high-quality as always. The service was great and the setting was intimate, however, the band was terrible. Instead of getting the sounds of a great jazz band in the background, they seemed to sway between Bond (techno-violin) and Metallica ("Nothing Else Matters") Really? Did I miss the "Jazz" part of "Life Jazz 7 nights per week?" Very disappointing. If you don't mind that kind of music, then you'll probably have fun. Otherwise not.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food could have been warmer.The food could have been warmer. It was a little cold.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMNot the original.....It's not as charming as the original Pete Miller's in Evanston; it doesn't have the same character in terms of decor. But the food and service are outstanding and the jazz music makes it feel a little less "suburban."3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and oneExcellent service and one of the best steamed lobsters I have had. Asked to have it left intact without cracking tail or claws. Arrived perfectly prepared and served. Shrimp deJongue was equally well prepared and delicious.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
