Waited a long time in between seeing a server. That being said, the server was phenomenal. There were 2 very drunk men behind us and they were very loud and used profanity the entire 3 hours we were there. Families around us with children complained and so did we and nobody seemed to care. The table in question ordered a few bottles so that seemed to take priority. Food was wonderful. A little over priced all things considered.

Made a reservation for 6:45 on a Sunday. Got seated at 6:50 and sat at our table for 25 minutes until 7:15 and nobody even came to our table for a drink order. We left before we got any service.

We had an amazing server named Kristin . The food and service were amazing on the patio. Felt very comfortable with contract tracing etc.
Bar Manager came out at the end and surprised us with some caring treat to end our evening . ❤️
Being a healthcare worker coming out of this pandemic this was our first patio dining experience in over 16 months -what a lovely evening .
Thank you Miller Tavern and your great team !

The taste of the food was really good. I was a little bit disappointed with the service. We had to call over the waiter for everything that we needed. We were waiting for our food for an hour and a half when we asked the waiter for our food. He then said that the oven wasn’t working properly. It came not long after that.

I got the oysters, steak frites and sticky toffee pudding. I literally never write reviews but everything was SO GOOD. The oysters were so fresh and I cannot get over the steak (I got rare). The meat quality was amazing. The fries were literally coated in some funnel cake tasting batter I don’t know how to explain it but they were SO GOOD. I cannot stop thinking about the food and in conclusion I was SHOOKETH. One tiny bit of constructive criticism is that the sticky toffee pudding was a bit dry so I think a bit more sauce would solve that but I love that it’s made in house! Oh and I also got the truffle aioli which was amazing. I got 2 beer and their drinks are fairly priced. As I said I don’t write reviews but I am in love with this place and will make everyone try their steak.

The fact the a written menu is not presented to the customers is very annoying, Choosing the dish from the menu is part of the experience, and Covid is not the excuse. The menu that we finally were given was a disposable, letter size one page print and that should be available without asking.
Expecting patrons to choose from the on line menu on their phones is ridiculous!

Especially after having to download the app and fill in the Covid questions on line!
Somehow other restaurants can ask this questions in person.

Great service. However the food could be better for the price . Ordered the steaks and one was undercooked and the other was a little bit cold. Heavy on the salt with seasoning.

Great staff who acted quickly when a gentleman had fallen on the street and hit his head quite badly. The Staff member brought him a chair, some water and napkins to help. Outstanding and shows how great the staff is. 911 was called and he was in good hands only because he fell in front of Miller Tavern. Food and Drink was great well as well.

From the host to the server it was a very welcoming location. The patio looks onto a busy South Bay St near Lakeshore and although it cannot be described as “scenic”, the people watching opportunities are great.
The seafood menu was outstanding and the food was well cooked and presented. The cocktails are well curated and the presentation lovely.

The smallest piece of feedback is that the music, although at an appropriate level, was a strange instrumental mix that included a mission impossible theme which was somewhat strange for dinner.

Extra thanks to the manager for checking in and offering dessert. We had a wonderful meal.

From the time we entered the patio till we were leaving we had amazing service. Our server Sarah was so knowledgeable. I even expressed this to her and she had only worked there for 2 days. Her outstanding service was impeccable. The Salmon was mouth watering and the red wince called devils kiss tasted so fresh
I will definitely be going back.

This place is a little place on the corner of bay and harbour st., they have a nice environment, friendly staff, but could improve on their speed of food. Also it was my friend's birthday, they offered a slice of cake just for her, which was super awesome! Other than that, I would totally recommend on going to this place!
