It 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 AMToo loudThe food was excellent, the service was good, but the band was so loud it ruined our meal. I used to recommend this restaurant but not any more. Won't be going back5/11/2013 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 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 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 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 AMBest Place in Wheeling for DinnerRestaurants don't get much better than Pete Miller's - our most favorite place to dine!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great service. WeAlways great service. We felt adventurous & enjoyed the pistachio crusted grouper & bison strip steak.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service was veryFood and service was very good. The only disappointment was the "chopped salad". The lettuce wasn't chopped, only the other ingredients. Any of the Lettuce Entertainment restaurants know how to make a true chopped salad.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe ambiance and service ofThe ambiance and service of Pete Miller's are overshadowed only by the steaks. Our parmesan-crusted filets melted in our mouths and left us longing for much more! Can't wait to come back!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe throughly enjoyed are eveningWe throughly enjoyed are evening and the music was a nice added touch
The Moores3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMPete Miller's is a straight-forwardPete Miller's is a straight-forward high-end steak and seafood place. Early seatings are great for quiet dining; on weekends, the entertainments starts around 7:30 and the noise level picks up (though it's never unpleasant). Wait staff is knowledgeable about the menu and the wines, and they are friendly. The entertainment has been outstanding every time we have dined there on the weekend.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe ambience was excellentThe ambience was excellent as was the food. The 10 oz filet was second to none. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The soothing live jazz music was a nice relaxing touch. I would highly reccomend for a special occassion or just an evening out for no reason except to get a great meal and superlative service!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI read all the positive reviewsI read all the positive reviews but I was still impressed by the ambiance, the service and the food! Will definitely be returning again!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile our dining experienceWhile our dining experience was excellent, the half hour wait for our table was not since we had a reservation. We arrived right on time at 7pm for our 7pm reservation but we didn't get seated until 7:31pm. The food was delicious though. Best baked french onion soup I've ever had and our steaks were cooked perfectly.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMvery comfortable atomspherevery comfortable atomsphere for dining for a special occassion. A nice added touch is the quality of teh live entertainmnet.A bit pricey, need to reserve for special occasions3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food Plus Hot Jazz!!I always enjoy Pete Millers. The service is excellent. The food is very, very good. The ambiance is inviting and romantic. To top it all off, they have live jazz in the lounge AND complimentary valet parking. My husband and I went on a date on a Saturday night and had such an excellent time. We'd planned on going to the movies after dinner, but decided to stay and listen to the great jazz quartet that was playing in the lounge. It was a very enjoyable evening.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a keeperThe service was impeccable! I even appreciated the brief small talk with the waitress. The evening buffet was delicious and the presentation was nice. Initially, I had concerns about what appears to be a room addition with views of the parking lot. The room turned out to be quiet and pleasant. I was most appreciative to have been seated there. I have already recommended the restaurant to my son and his girlfriend.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't Wait to Go Back!Love, love, LOVE this place! Food is delicious and if you get their early enough, you can get the early bird special menu!!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Seafood Buffet on FridayThe Seafood Buffet on Friday night is fantastic. They have crab, shrimp, prime rib, and the night I went leg of lamb. I had to pace myself. The price is great too at 39.95. I would also like to recommend server Jaclyn (you should ask for her) as she did a fantastic five star job. I live in the far western suburbs but have no problem driving 55 miles to this restaurant.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
