It was only mediocre. If you are not picky about your food, this is the place for you.

Pete Miller's in Wheeling is a fairly regular stop for many in my dining party and it has yet to let us down at every level. Quality to price ratio, quality of food, bar service, waitstaff's always been a superb experience.

The overall experience was fine. We celebrated a birthday for my son and he wanted to split a wagyu steak with his brother. When you order a $129 steak (granted it was on sale for $79) you expect a melt in your mouth piece of meat and the experience hard to forget. Unfortunately, the steak was still mooing (even though we ordered medium) in the middle and we had to ask the waiter to get it cooked more. By the time we received the steak the second time, it was charred at the ends and lost the expectations we had. Other than that, side dishes and apps were very good. I ordered a halibut fish, but I should've known better than to order fish at a steak house. Not sure if we will be back.

We went here Saturday because the storm forced us to stay in the burbs. Overall a nice dinner. The prime rib special is very good. Nice cut of meat and better than the prime rib at other places. My wife always has the scallops which were good. Service is solid but a but sloppy. They dropped a dish when serving. Dessert was very good and the wine prices are fair. It would be nice if there was a bit more buzz but overall a nice dinner.

server was incompetent, we were a party of 8 and 3 of the meals were incorrect and had to be sent back and one still came back incorrect (how hard is it for the chef to put bacon around a steak?). have been a patron for many years and decided to take my staff for a special occasion but never again.

Everything we were looking for: ambience, food, service, all first rate and a highly enjoyable experience.

I always enjoy my food experience at Pete Miller's. The steaks are beautifully cooked and presented. My only complaint was the live jazz music was overly amplified on my date to the point that conversation was impacted.

food was not the great- :( maybe I had too high expectation for such a high priced menu.

Had a great anniversary dinner at Pete Miller's. It was a Monday night so it was very quiet and romantic. The calamari was awesome. We shared a shrimp cocktail. It was the only part of the meal that was not awesome. The shrimp was overcooked but the sauce was excellent. We both had the Lobster Bisque and the Sirloin. Both were great. It was my third time in this restaurant and I will definitely be back.

Haven't been there for 5 years as last time the food was terrible but thought we would give it another try. Food was average at best, server seemed inexperience, abviance was tired looking. We went to sit on there patio and the furniture is so beat up, the big fireplace looks like it is falling apart and needs major tuck pointing the hostess was a young girl that was never trained and my husband's pork chop was over cooked. The couple next to us sent all there food back. I won't give it another try, done with Pete Miller's in Wheeling. For the prices they charge, they should buy new rattan furniture for outside. It was disgusting.

It was my husband's birthday; it was nice out and still light so we sat outside (the dining area inside is very dark). It's a nice setup but is super noisy from the Milwaukee ave traffic. I ordered the crab leg cocktail which must have been hurriedly thawed because there were ice crystals and it was watery. They're known for steaks so I had the 3 filets ordered medium. The server brought them out and suggested we check for doneness ( thought that was nice) mine was way too rare. So I asked it be cooked another couple of minutes; about 10 minutes later it came back totally well done. I took a couple of bites but it was awful. The sides were good and I ate them and declined having a new order made. The manager came over and very nicely took it off the bill but I would have preferred to have had them cooked properly and enjoyed. Also, the 3 crusts were mushy and indistinguishable. My husband's steak was ordered cmediumnrare and was fine.

Hadn't been here in quite awhile. Friday, 7/8/16. Arrived at about 5:45 to partake in their "Happy Hour" drink specials. Those were good. Had dinner reservations for 6:30. Went to celebrate my wife birthday. Opted to sit outside. Only us and another couple there. The patio sits right along Milwaukee Ave. There is quire a bit of traffic noise. Got too windy to stay outside, went inside. The vibe was weird. Hardly anyone in there as well. I realize it is still fairly early, but still. Ordered the calamari. Not good. No tentacles. Lousy taste and texture. Based on the calamari dish and seeing what they were charging for their entrees, didn't want to chance it and we decided to not have dinner after all. Went to Bob Chinns down the street for an outstanding meal.

They must keep track of special requests because the waiter knew I liked anchovy stuffed olives and let me know that fact prior to ordering a drink.

The patio is lovely! We were in the mood for tacos and they were better than many Mexican restaurants. Live music is hard to find and theirs is fabulous.

Our small group of professional women get together quarterly to celebrate birthdays, friendship, and to talk shop. Pete's patio is our favorite location for our summertime "meeting." The patio is quiet, relaxing, and the service does not miss a beat just because you are outside. I tried a new entre - halibut with lobster broth spiced wih siracha and sliced avocado on top - and loved every bite. The wine list is also good.

We went to this restaurant for our 23 wedding anniversary. Great food, nice soft music in the background and good service. We sat outside on the patio and it was a perfect night. Waitress was attentitive but not overbearing. A little pricy but worth it.

Pete's in Wheeling has a great outdoor patio area and good happy hour drink/food deals. The pianist playing jazz inside was very good - too bad she had such a slim audience.
I was a bit disappointed in the "chopped salad" as it was not really "chopped" but simply had the ingredients of a "chopped salad".

Fantastic service and live music. A little slow on food delivery but the service more than made up for it!

We have been to Pete Millers several times, the food and service is always very good. They also consistently offer great entertainment and this night was no different. We always enjoy ourselves and will return.
