This restaurant is closed down. Please remove it. We could not book a different place because we were in your app with this reservation.

The restaurant was closed, with a sign on the door stating that they shut the operation down. It would have been n8ce had open table contacted us with this news before we just showed up. A bit embarrassing for us and the clients we were with.

I went for my birthday dinner. I had a party of 10 ladies. Just about every order was wrong however we understand the server was new. I just dont think he should have been given a large party to wait on after only working there a week. The food was okay. I wouldnt say its a place Id repeat again or recommend. The music and overall ambience of the resturant was amazing.

A very classy venue. A little off the beaten path for city dwellers, but worth the drive. We went out to hear friends who were performing for the last night of their engagement.

Lovely restaurant. Really liked the modern decor and the live music from the bar area. Service was impeccable. BBQ ribs were delicious and the French fries were addicting. We shared a slice of cheesecake that was creamy and delicious. I would highly recommend Pete Miller’s. Varied menu with options for all price ranges.

The restaurant cancelled my open table reservation. I happened to check the reservation in the app and it was not listed. I found an email from yesterday asking me to confirm but I do not necessarily check email daily, so they cancelled it because I did not respond to the email. Fortunately I was able to re-reserve quickly. However this is very disconcerting; to have to consider that your Open Table reservations can be cancelled without your knowledge. In the event of a business or family gathering, or a special occasion, this might be disastrous.

The live jazz was great, awesome trio, great selection of tunes at comfortable volume. The food and service were not as good as I remember from the Evanston location. The band made up for it! I would not eat there again, but definitely come for a cocktail to listen to some good jazz!

This is the third time we have tried this establishment. The first 2 times were unacceptable and this time was no different. Food was overpriced, bland, cold and service was horrible. My husband ordered the prime rib sandwich. The meat was most definitely not prime rib. It was overcooked, stringy and cold. I had the chicken pasta which was also cold. The server ignored us most of the time so we were unable to send the food back to be warmed. In addition, the bread we did not eat we asked to take home as we had most of the loaf left- it was thrown away. When our check was dropped off, we waited at least 15 minutes for the server. She never came back to the table so we had to go to the bartender to pay our bill. Three strikes and you're out. We tried but at this point we will not return.

the original steak tips dinner was inedible due to oversalting. the waitress offered a second choice which i took and ordered the chicken marsala. it was outstanding. they received a 5 rating for how the handled over salted dish and its delicious replacement. this is a hidden gem

We were lucky enough not to have any issues with our meal, but ALL three tables around us had some kind of issue. The table behind us had multiple issues. The food was just ok. The salad was really good, and we loved the bread, but the meal itself was mediocre. The lobster was dry and the steak was just ok. It wasn't a horrible experience, but we have no desire to go back.

The food was really good, but the service was terrible. We waited forever for our food. There were people who came in after us and left before us. We were a big party but it was a really long wait. Plus we had little kids who were hungry and even their food took forever. Getting them to bring more bread was impossible! For a table of 13, they kept bringing one small basket of bread. I realize it was mothers day and they had been busy, but we were not given any sort of explanation or apology or anything. Dulled the experience a lot for all of us.

The worst service I’ve ever experienced. It took 45 minutes to get our drinks and over 2 hours to get our meal. After waiting over 2 hours for their meal, the people at the table next to us left without their meal. Also, they were out of Prime Rib by 7pm on a Saturday. Nonetheless the jazz band there was amazing and the food was actually very good. It just took them a very long time to get it to us.

Mother’s Day dinner - Such an unfortunate evening! Never have written a bad review before. Jazz band was excellent, appetizers were quite good, but as if our order fell into a black hole, an hour after our salads, the meal turned up cold. We sent it back, asking that we get hot food. The manager and waiter apologized and offered an appetizer, which took another 20 min to arrive. A large table that came in an hour after we did ended up getting their dinner before we did, so - more than 40 min after we sent our original meal back we still hadn’t received it. I advised the manager we were leaving and offered to pay for what we had eaten. They were very professional about it. Likely will not ever go back.

Overall our first time experience at Pete Miller's was good. With that said, I expected excellence. I didn't feel the server was of the caliber for this type of restaurant. She was very personable however lacked attentiveness and menu knowledge. A fine dining restaurant should only have professional servers with quality fine dining experience. However, my server was a bar server working in fine dining, as she explained she also works as a server at the micro brewery affiliated with this restaurant and recently started at Pete Miller's. There's a difference in those experiences.
My husband did leave his credit card and was immediately notified, which was awesome and appreciated. The live music was great, ambience great, and the prime rib meal was very good.
I plan to come again.

Nice place. Had the prime rib dinner, nice value for what you get with the prime rib dinner. My prime rib was dry though. I ordered it rare, medium rare and it was too over cooked. The apps, curds, bacon wrapped scallops (3) for a table should be 4, and firecracker shrimp all very good. The band was loud throughout the dinner, finished my cocktail wanted a water took me 3x’s asking to get a refill. Our waitress was nice but didn’t cover the table that often. My wife specifically asked twice for a water refill that didn’t happen until the third time. The place was nice, the dinner was good but I didn’t leave saying I can’t wait to come back. It is a nice restaurant though.

The music was a bit loud for my wife. The next time we visit we will ask for a booth farther away from the bar area. Also, we were set upon eating the prime rib. Saturday night we were told that the prime rib was only served well done. What a killer! Also the salads were served at the same time as our main entrees. That did not sit well with us either.

Yes, i would recommend it to others. I already told my boyfriend we need to come back. Loved the music playing. And Rob the Waiter for his second day on the job he did a fabulous job. He knew all of our question we asked, and he was very attentive. Great job.

We arrived about 5:30 for our reservation, and were seated immediately ( we were the only ones there )
We ordered soup and had to send it back ( cold ). When our food arrived it was also not HOT . The baked potato looked like yesterday's potato. It also was not hot, the butter was not able to melt . by in large I would not recommend this restaurant. by the time we left at 7pm there were only two other tables in use. I guess the word it out AVOID this restaurant.
