Friend’s Birthday. Service was friendly & accommodating. Lots of steak to choose from, but my fish eating friends were very happy with their halibut.

The Miller Tavern was a cozy choice for lunch on a cold February day. The dinning room is very warm and welcoming with lots of wood. I could do without the visual distraction of all the TV screens. We were dining with a friend with mobility issues and the staff where great about placing in a table rather than a booth. The service was friendly and efficient. When we arrived, we did sit for awhile before the server came to take drink orders. From then on the service went very smoothly. Three of five of us ordered the classic steak with peppercorn sauce which was done very well. Both the sweet potato and regular fries were fantastic.

Valentines day dinner for 3 couples. Hard to believe they were sold out of oysters before 7pm. The place was 2/3 empty, and to be honest we were only going there for the oysters.

Good ambiance and perfect for Sat night out with friends. My husbands $45 steak had lots of tendons and rather tough. Noted this to server who compted a free dessert- very thoughtful. Friend wanted a simple chicken dish and nothing like this on the menu -- very strange - only had Jerk chicken - sad knowing that a lot of people tend to avoid red meat. She also cannot eat shellfish so got some appetizers instead.

We really enjoyed our evening & Alana made it extra special, she very sweet and professional.
I did notice the decor & some new flowers. It’s nice to see the effort being made.
Try branches in water for the spring. They will keep for quite a while, looking fresh but very spring like as they bloom.
See you soon
I forgot to use my discount ticket.

Our server didn’t properly take our order. The steak served was cold and not cooked to specification even after it was brought back.

The steak actually looked like dog food.

This was our poorest visit to the Miller. We had invited friends from Burlington for dinner and when we got there we found that you had closed the upper level for repairs. The noise level in the sports bar was extremely high and we had difficulty hearing each other. If you are going to do things like that, then p;ease state that on your website.

The food was very good and if we decide to come back again, I will phone ahead and make sure that we are seated in the upstairs part of the restaurant.

Just disappointed, I was told this place was great at steaks but, my breakfast steak was not good. No flavor and the sauteed onions did not taste fresh. The bread basket was good and the service was good but food just wasn't good for me.

First time here and we will be back. We were out to celebrate my daughter's birthday and it was great (other than it being a bit cold in the restaurant ) I had the primerib roast beef. It was cooked perfectly. So tender and a very generous portion. My daughter had steak and again cooked to perfection. The sticky toffee pudding is delicious

We made a reservation online and requested the upstairs dining room with the view. They were very professional and alerted us it was closed and offered to cancel or make room for us in the lounge.

We were shown to our table on arrival and made very comfortable by the young man acting as host. The room was warm and not as noisy as we expected from a lounge with TV.

We all chose different meals. I had the peppercorn steak. It was not the best quality steak but the price was appropriate and it was very tasty. The Pad Thai was not a winner. But the Salmon and Cod were excellent and a good portion size.


We found the Pinot Gris from from Masi was excellent but priced a little high. Indeed we found the whole wine list a little over market.

In summary, we had a lovely evening with great service and adequate food. In the summer the patio and the windowed upstairs seemed to make everything better.

We continued our annual New Year’s Eve tradition of dinner at Millers and were disappointed this year. Typically, they serve a complimentary amuse bouche or after dinner beverage. This year prices increased and nothing was complimentary or special to acknowledge the holiday. The food was good.

The main dining room upstairs was extremely loud and we could barely hear one another across the table. The restaurant had a number of infants and children under 10 years old running around and screaming. When your going out to celebrate a special evening and spending $$ I don’t want to hear other people’s undisciplined children. Had I known we would have sat downstairs in the causal bar area which was peaceful.

The calamari was amazing but the main courses (both dishes) were not satisfactory and over priced ++
The special Roasted Lobster was overcooked, the rice was cold and possibly came from a box, the asparagus was cold and woody. The Pad Thai was lacking in seafood, poor taste, and served warm not hot. I am not the type of person to make a fuss and complain as it was supposed to be a special new years eve dinner. I have been there quite a bit over the years and have never been so disappointed. I will most likely never return there.

However, your booking service is great and I will use it in the future.

Service was unbelievably slow and inconsistent. You pay enough at Miller Tavern that you expect a good experience, and this was not that. Food was average, steak cooked very poorly, service was terrible. Overall just a really bad experience.

As usual we feel at home at The Miller, so it’s always a good experience.
I believe I’ve mentioned the bathrooms. They are not well kept. I have a friend that was there last week, she hasn’t been there in quite a while. She said the bathroom downstairs was messy with things broken. She also said she won’t return. My experience in the upstairs washroom; is that it’s always messy. I realize some “ladies” lack etiquette & make no effort to leave things presentable for the next guest.
I certainly do love all the Christmas decor. Well done!
The food is usual never a disappointment.
The service is great, but we know everyone. Well done considering the busy Christmas season.
