Can't go wrong at Miller
Very consistent in serving great food, great service and great location of course! Sweet potato fries and curry mayo are a must- the burgers are fantastic.

Best Dinner Spot Ever!
This is my second time at this restaurant and it is even better. I came on a busy Friday night yet the waiter was still very patient and thoughtful. I had their poutine for the very 1st time and it is something everyone should try.

Fabulous spot! Great vibe,
Fabulous spot! Great vibe, love sitting at the bar, Jay and Reed are gems! The St. Germain cocktail is a must try. Will be returning there again, can't wait to sit on their patio this summer!

Great pre-game/post-game hangout or for a casual meal. Burger is superb! Service is attentive with a twist of humour!

Vintage cocktails & So Much More.
Jolly Miller is a great neighbourhood bar/restaurant with super-friendly service (thanks Douglas!), great light lunches and starters (the charcuterie and "this and that" combos are amongst the best deals in TO, a nice patio scene and excellent vintage cocktails & wine list.
Ambience is much better than "fake Irish pub" - modern, moderately quiet, spacious.
We work in the area and go to the Miller at all times of the day - for lunch and dinner and all times in-between for coffee and meetings.
Only downside - forget game or concert nights at ACC - unless you're going to the game or concert - Miller fills up from 5 to game and immediately after. If you want a nice dinner those night book after 7:00

5 star treatment
I had an enjoyable time at Miller Tavern on Saturday night. Food was great. Lots of flavour. Service was awesome and the waiter went way out of his way to make it a memorable evening.

Not your typical Tavern
Downtown location does not have same ambiance as north TO location which has been around since 1857 however food and service are excellent. In addition to pub fare there are also other choices and we opted for shrimp and crab cakes for starters and lobster mac and cheese and scallops for entrees. The entrees were excellent but the shrimp in the starter was a little mushy and had obviously been frozen and thawed
Beer selection is a little disappointed for a tavern with only 5-6 choices.
Service was OK but not outstanding

Good food but cut off the bass
Ordered burger and lobster tacos. Both were great. Server was attentive. Music (some jazz, dance) itself was nice enough to create a potentially enjoyable ambience. However, bass was way too loud and the thumping inappropriate for a dining environment. Detracted from an otherwise enjoyable dining experience.

The Marvelous Miller
Met 7 friends there before the Stones concert. Our good natured, adept server Gregory was just like one of us...lots of jokes, attentive but not intrusive service...and the food was excellent...succulent Chilean Sea Bass, rich and robust short ribs, tasty quesadillas, tacos and chicken curry...and my steak, salad and steamed veg rocked. Delicious martinis and decent sized glasses of wine...all at good prices. It was my first time...but definitely not my last! Great ambience a hop skip and a jump from the ACC!

love The Tavern. Monday night great to take a vintage wine & pay a $ corkage ! I have the artisan cheese board on Mondays to go with my wine :-) food consistently good, service great , 2 minute walk from condo - couldn't ask for more.

pre eagles concert dinner was great
Short wait and our reserved table ready on time. Server was attentive, friendly & knowledgeable. Crab and shrimp cakes were fabulous. Drinks were fun and our entrees were delicious and perfectly prepared. Will definitely come again.

Looked for somewhere to eat
Looked for somewhere to eat close to the ACC for the Eagles concert. We were very pleased with the food and excellent service. Would definately go there again. A little pricey for those who are not used to paying a little extra, but was well worth it.

The hostess was able to seat us right away and the server was very knowledgeable regarding the menu. The food was delicious and prepared in an appropriate amount of time. We were a party of 7; we ordered appetizers: crab cakes, shrimp cocktail and clam chowder soup- all were very flavorful and plated with care. The steak was mouth watering and grilled to perfection. We were even fortunate enough to meet the owner of the restaurant, chef and sous chef who prepared our meals! The Miller is the perfect place for foodies and regular diners alike. We definitely recommend the Miller!

Great selection of off the beaten path pub food plus other gourmet choices.

Miller for business meeting
We went to the Miller Tavern for lunch! The food was excellent - one of my colleagues tried to order the Pickerel Special however if was sold out so they offered him the same dish but with salmon his response when he tasted it was "for a pickerel substitute this is pretty awesome I would never have know this wan't how the dish was intended to be".
An amuse buche of Miniature Pancakes with Bacon and Maple Syrup were delicious and the House Smoked Salmon was a gem.
Definitely go again in the near future!

First time experience
This was the first time for me at this location, and first time for my date at Miller Tavern.
Our waitress (sadly, don't remember her name) was absolutely amazing. She was energetic, friendly and helpful.
They were very accommodating.
I would definitely go back.

Miller Tavern was everything and more than I expected it would be. My girlfriend and I made a reservation weeks in advance because it was close to the ACC and we will definitely be coming back. Service was amazing, Food portion was unbelievable. Whether its going with a group or an anniversary Miller Tavern will be a comfortable atmosphere.

lunch september 24
We were greeted promptly and shown to our specific table that we reserved. Water, drinks, and wine were served promptly by the friendly server. The mussels were tough. Not nearly as tasty as we enjoyed a few weeks ago. My short ribs were delicious but the thai dish ordered by my two companions did not impress. The wash rooms were spotless.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food close to the ACC
The Miller Tavern Downtown is well located for a meal before a hockey or basketball game. Excellent service and good food.

Four year anniversary dinner couldn't have been better at Bay st location. Hostess and waiter both very friendly. Fast service, delicious food and decent portion sizes. Great price as well. We got tuna tartare, nicoiose salad with tuna, rib eye steak and lobster tail all to share. Everything was delicous. Also one of the best caesar's I have ever tried. Bill was only $122, which for all that food plus beers and cocktails is more than reasonable. Can't wait to go back. Thank you for creating such a comfortable dining experience.

25th Anniversary Dinner
We arrived and were greeted by a very nice gentlemen. My husband said we were there for our 25th anniversary dinner. He congratulated us and seated us immediately. Our waiter came over and asked for our drink order and then told us that they were giving us our first drink on the house! Our waiter was very friendly and easy to talk to. He was very knowledgeable on the specials and the different food items available. Staff was very attentive. Food was very good also. After getting our check we were told that they comped more than one drink as well as our dessert!!! Very nice gesture on their part and we will gladly return when we visit Toronto again!! Would highly recommend this restaurant!!

Enjoyed a really nice brunch before a Sunday afternoon performance at Roy Thomson Hall, starting with Mimosas for me, and Caesars for Hubby.
It seemed a shame there was no fruit cup on the menu. Our waiter, Fraser, agreed and said he would suggest it; he then brought a small bowl of fruit containing raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and some seedless grapes, a nice touch and greatly appreciated.
Fraser highly recommended the "Hangover" when I was undecided between it and the Miller Bay Benny. Hubby had the MBB and I ordered the Hangover; we shared and both were excellent (the MBB was the real winner; we both thought it was delicious.) Two good cups of coffee to follow, and we left full and happy. Thanks, Fraser!

Great location, food and service!
We chose Miller Tavern because it was very close to the Air Canada Centre and we were going to concert there. The food was very good and though it was busy the service was top notch.

Puck Stops Here
First time experience was very good. No issue with reservation and received requested table seating. Good variety of food selections. Highly recommend the Miller burger. Decent selection of draft beers. Pricing is reasonable. Stone throws
distance from the ACC. Service a little slow, so recommend you allow a couple of hours before game night.

The passion and kmowledge
The passion and kmowledge of the bar staff was good, and their hospitality was a great way to start a weekend with friends. We started at the bar and moved to dining area. Next time, I'll stick to the bar due to the attentive staff and fun interactions. The bar tenders were attentive, flexible and service oriented.
Only other comment I would make is that the menu wasn't hitting a chord on that night and funds (or lack of) was a factor that night. Hopefully next time I go, the hotdog guys are on the corners so I can spend my money on the excellent drinks!

Back For Seconds
Two weeks later we returned. Again food quality and presentation was very good. Service was worse than last time. We felt our waiter abandoned us during the evening. We had to ask another server to find our waiter twice. Disappointing as our group came in after the hockey crowd left so the restaurant was not busy.

Possibly the best steak my guest and I have had! Well done!

Ate at the Miller Tavern before a Raptor game. Food was very good. Service was excellent. We arrived a bit late for our reservation but server made sure we had our drinks and food in a timely fashion. Made it to the game on time!

Great for events at ACC
I would highly recommend The Miller for anyone taking a weekend getaway for an event downtown. We stayed at the St. Germain Hotel for a recent concert at the ACC. The hotel was 40 steps from the ACC and The Miller was another 100 steps away. The Miller offers great good and excellent service. A great choice for any downtown night out.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our group of 6 ladies enjoyed our dinner before the P!nk concert. Our waiter was great. Lots of energy and a great attitude. Our table enjoyed his service and wit.(kept up with our wit and sarcasm). The food was very good, nobody had any complaints with what they ordered.
Would definitely go back!

My daughter and I went to a Leaf's game Tuesday. The entire meal was excellent. Nick our server was great. Both of us had
fish and loved it. Too bad the Leafs couldn't delivery this good of an experience!

We dined pre game and throughly enjoyed our meal.
Service was very good and over all very friendly.

Best brunch in the city!!!
The Miller is definitely my new favourite for brunch. Having been there for dinner many times - and loved it - we thought we should give it a try. We weren't dissapointed and plan to go back next week. They take a traditional eggs Benedict and make it a mouth watering treat.

Three of us meet at Miller's Tavern for Brunch on Sunday. It was a beautiful summer day and we decided to sit outside on the terrasse. The Brunch selection on the Menu was great and I decided to try the Nicoise Salad which was fantastic. Service was excellent and attentive. Would greatly recommand it!
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great location for pre-event dining. Great people & service. good food. Definitely a regular spot for me.
