We went here on a very cold night and it was quite cool at our table. The maitra d was very accomodating and offered to move us. Instead, he brought a space heater. Our server was very good, although she didn't tell me that the sauce for the scallops was made with red peppers, which I had told her I dislike. The glass of wine I got was very small - so next time I would opt for a bottle, at least you know what you are getting. My husband had a filet - he said it was good, but not as tender as the ones we get at the super market. The calamari app was very tasty.

We chose Pete Miller's because our friends from out of town enjoy good food and live Jazz. All of us were very pleased with the experience.

My wife absolutely loved the Salmon & Prawn Brodo and my 14oz Boneless Ribeye was perfect for every bite with an even Medium cooked from end to end. I added the Alaskan King Crab and the sauteded mushrooms which for me were just the right touch. The King Crab was flakey and a great counter point to the steak. Both my wife and I really enjoyed finishing off the entire bowl of shareable Brussel Sprouts! The La Marca Prosecco for my wife and my Falesco Tellus Merlot were outstanding for our different meals. We meant to take just one desert to share back to our hotel for later, but couldn't agree so shared both the Death by Chocolate Cheesecake and the Key Lime Tart. They were both to die for.

The food, as always, was great. The room was cold because we were there on a REALLY cold night. It made it slightly less enjoyable. They were aware enough not to seat anybody by the windows!

Nice place. Food was good. Only real complaint was being seated essentially 'on stage'. The music was great, just too loud for conversation. Probably shouldn't be any seating that close to the perfomers.

Seated away from music, food was good, but over priced. Our server, Ada was excellent. Not what it used to be.

Came here early on New Year's Ever. We love sitting at the bar, having appetizers, a drink and listening to soft jazz music. Nicest bar on the North Shore, friendly bartenders and great food, even for my vegetarian wife.

We went to Pete Miller's for a New Years Eve dinner. The food was great! The people watching was entertaining. Our waiter was attentive but not overly attentive. They had two jazz bands going in separate rooms, but we were still able to have a conversation. I highly recommend the restaurant.

Celebrating our anniversary here was a good choice. With a traditional steakhouse feel, they have a full bar and large, old styled booths in a semi formal setting. A jazz duo was playing the night we were there and they were a great add-on to the traditional decor.

We started out with old fashions using our favorite bourbon and I have to say, those were the best old fashions we ever had! I also had a cab with my steak and it was just ok, their wine list was a bit small and uninteresting. We loved our steak, lobster tail and short rib ravioli! Quite filling and delicious! We each had a different salad, plentiful and tasty. The bread and butter were an outrageously savory treat with our salads. Dessert was the flourless chocolate mousse cake which was outstanding. In sum, if you don’t mind the traditional steakhouse setting, it’s a great place for steak and seafood. We will be back!

Our reservation was for 6:30 on Christmas Eve. We arrived (party of 2) at 6:20, ordered our meal at 6:30 and left at 7.!!!!!!! We had no time to even enjoy the appetizers when the main courses arrived. We felt very rushed. We were seated in a high traffic area & the room was cold. My friend ordered a non-spicy Bloody Mary and it arrived spicy. The shrimp cocktail arrived on a huge bed of ice in a huge bowel that took up most of the space in front of me. The shrimp weren’t properly peeled and had large strands hanging from them! Very unappetizing. The sea bass had no flavor. We were so disappointed with everything.
