About Miller's Guild
Located in the Historic Hotel Max Miller’s Guild is built around a 9 foot long, custom made wood-fired grill.

Miller's Guild Ratings and Reviews
This was my second time at Miller's Guild. The first time I was not impressed but decided to give it another try. I didn't care for the ambiance. One end of the booth I sat in was where they stored wood and I was afraid it was going to snag my sweater. I do like the open grill and watching the steaks cook but it can get somewhat warm. I ordered fried mushrooms and a filet mignon. I wanted to have one of their aged steaks but it their smallest available was too big for two people so I did the filet instead. I ordered my steak medium but I should have asked what that was like for them because it came out more done than I expected from a steakhouse. The char on the outside also made it slightly bitter. I did enjoy the mashed potatoes, very fluffy and buttery and it was nice that we didn't have to buy sides separately. Overall nothing was terrible but nothing was amazing either. Maybe some more steak options and more attention to how they're cooked would make me want to come back.
Prices seem to have doubled! I have been to Miller’s Guild several times, and it used to be my favorite steak restaurant in Seattle. However, I haven’t been in a couple of years, and boy was I shocked at how much prices have increased. The steak and the wine are half again over what they used to be. The restaurant went from being pricey-but-worth-it to overpriced-and-not-worth-it, especially considering the lack of ambience and noise level that forces you to shout at your companions.
I thought I give MG one more try...it seems each dinner gets sadder. Christmas Eve dinner was a disappointment with some of the family style servings barely enough for a child...i.e. The appetizers only had 1 small piece of sausage and salami per person and a beet humus which appeared to be served with a dried out slice of bread which crumbled with the first bite...the picketed vegetables allowed each guest to pick the 1 piece they could try, so if you wanted to try the cauliflower you'd have to pass on the peppers. My intent is not to be a glutton , but I do enjoy sampling different offerings...
I give up
My reservation was 12/22 through opentable. Requested well lit quiet area and it wasnt possible, so asked to be shown my reserved table.... surprise: no table! Would I like to sit at a bar facing the kitchen to eat shared by other folks...... ?
Not really no, I made the reservation on openTABLE - yes TABLE - and when I arrive then I find there is not one.
My evening was salvaged by walking out and reserving elsewhere, where the restaurant honors its reservations.
We reserved for 3 at the chef's counter, the server was not warned in advance. Carrots were inconsistent, some rather raw. Wedge salad with butter lettuce was soft and a little dull. Tomahawk steak was just good, but expecting something more. Tiramisu has some inedible hard pieces of coffee bean? A really fun space but I had dreams of an epic dinner to remember and ended up a bit disappointed.
I made a reservation for my son and I to meet for brunch/lunch on a busy weekend when we both had lots of plans. At the last minute, my vegan daughter joined us as well as a friend who was celebrating a birthday. The kitchen prepared an excellent vegan hash for my daughter and my eggs benedict was amazing. Our table was happy and we weren't hungry for a long time!!
Our waiter spilled butter on my boyfriend, commented on how “cozy” we looked immediately after laughing at me when I chose a $50 bottle of wine. The bill was over $230 and there was no need to laugh at me for choosing a wine that was within my budget. It made my boyfriends birthday meal incredibly awkward and I really didn’t like how rude the waiter was. We definitely will not be returning.
Sorry for the negativity but this really was not a great experience. Especially for the price.
Sadly, in spite of the really good food and the good service, this restaurant continues to feel like a rip off. 2 of us. no cocktails. $98! Our "Wedge salad" without steak was only discounted by $3! Really? a $24 salad is already ridiculous, but take the steak off and we had a few (seriously a few) pieces of blue cheese and so little dressing I left over half the lettuce becuase it was dry!). we had a side of fries and a side of the brussell sprouts. they were delicious, so no worry with the food quality. but the price is wrong. I won't go back
We went to dinner with our two kids under 6 for thanksgiving and this is definitely not a kid friendly restaurant. The food was good, but the service was not what I’d expect from a fine dining restaurant. It took way too long to receive all of our food especially since we were with 2 hungry kids and our waitress didn’t come back to check on us to see if we needed refills on water wine or cocktaills so we basically went through dinner with one glass each. On the plus side they were thoughtful enough to only charge us for 2 adults since our kids basically ate bread for dinner. Lesson learned- if traveling with small kids make sure to ask how long the entire dinner service will take and if they offer alternate dishes for kids to choose from prior to booking a reservation with a set holiday menu.
This is a cozy, noisy place.
Logs add atmosphere.
The smell of smokey Brussels sprouts (or bacon?) prevails.Our waiter was wonderful. So we’re my two scallops. Crunchy on the outside, succulent & moist in the middle.
Smoked coffee ice cream with chocolate chunks smothered in thick hot fudge sauce-oh my!
+ Food was tasty, my wife's Filet Minion was great, my Bavette was good
- Lighting is pretty terrible, shadows over both our faces.
- No coat rack (weird with hotel next door too) so drape your winter coats uncomfortably over your chairs
- Maitre d’ wasn’t interested in being helpful (or even pleasant)
+/i Food took a long time but they did offer a round of drinks to compensate
Won't be coming back for dinner, but will so for drinks/lunch
Went for Seattle Restaurant Week at lunch time. Server was very personable. We got our appetizers timely, then after some time our server went to the kitchen and found out they had lost our lunch ticket. Food finally came and apologies all around. Because of the long wait they comped our lunch, which we appreciated.
I’ve been to Millers a couple of times. For the price, I think there should be some sentiment of romance or intimacy. But it’s really more like a high-end, expensive bar scene.
Food is good. Drinks are good. Ambience is more for business dinners or group events. The romantic or one-on-one game is not there.
