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.

Wonderful service by Mateusz and his shadow Robert. Food was well prepared. The bar was able to mix one of those cocktails from some years back. A good value too!

Food was good, service was good. Felt like the interior of the restaurant needed to updated, seemed outdated and some areas (near the restrooms had signs of age). Overall, good experience. Would go back there again

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.

The ambiance was good. The live jazz was a nice touch and the interior was nice. The service was average. Our server was nice but the drinks took to long. We actually ordered a drink when our meal came and was practically finished by the time they arrived. The server apologized but still it wasn't ideal. My steak was cooked perfectly but lacked flavor. My guest's meal had artichoke in it and that wasn't part of the dish. Also she requested onions and they were not in the dish. Because of the servers apologetic tone, the evening was salvaged, but I would not recommend Pete Miller's, nor will I return.

Group of four adults, one 13-year old and one toddler. 5:15 pm on a Saturday so we were a little ahead of the rush. Very comfortable and attractive venue. Manager attentive. Michael, our waiter was all over it. Friendly, fast, fun, helpful. Food is straightforward American, but you get a lot. I had the queen cut prime rib. You'd probably have to be Henry VIII to handle the King Cut. Price and selection range wide enough for most everyone. Wine, beer and drinks also plentiful (my martini was superb). Everyone went home happy.

I love the new menu! Food and service was excellent as always. Great live entertainment that is not too loud. Wonderful ambiance and why it’s always at very near the top of our list of places to go to celebrate holidays and special occasions. Terry is an awesome manager and always comes around to each table to make sure everything is great!

I visited on a Thursday evening and the service was very slow but, i visited again on a Saturday evening snd the service was very good. Great improvement. I really enjoy the music accompaniment with dinner. The food is a little pricey and the wine was just ok. Overall, i will definitely be returning to Pete Miller’s and telling my friends.

Restaurant was not full but the service was super slow and food was overcooked. Waiter apologized from the beginning for the slow service we were going to be getting as if he knew it ahead of time and he was right. The environment is nice, music too loud to talk when we first walked in. Food is overpriced, was overcooked and the service was slow!

We arrived at 6:00 (our reservation time). There were 6 of us celebrating my sons 18th birthday (I specified that on my reservation and told the waiter) . We ordered drinks and appetizers, the restaurant was beginning to fill so we placed our dinner order and waited, and waited, and waited. Finally our dinner arrived (many tables had come and gone by then). We told our waiter to please box our leftovers and we waited again. We had now been here 2 and 1/2 hours and finally someone came to box our food. We asked about dessert for my son to go and waited more time. Our guests left and I sat at the table waiting for a to go dessert which we were supposed to have had to celebrate my sons birthday. Finally it came. We spent $480 with tip, for that kind of money I would have expected outstanding service. The good was good but not sure I will go again.

I was disappointed for several reasons -- we had to wait for a table even with a reservation and several open when we were finally acknowledged; they didn't have iced tea; my filet mignon was overcooked; they ran out of baked potatoes; the waitress never brought our bread out; and the noise level from the live music was too much. However, the staff was very friendly, my lobster was amazing, and we tried a baked soft pretzel that was awesome. I'd like to come back to check on how they are doing after another 6 months to see if anything has changed.

The food and drink was very good. The service I think depends on who you get. We didn't luck out. Took a long time to get our drinks, then our salads/soup took way too long, think our server forgot about them. Although the server came to ask how things were, seemingly disappeared after dinner, our water glasses empty as other servers were more attentative to their tables. One server did come and give us water and seemingly had seen us waiting and waiting and asked if we needed anything which we eagerly said our server! Wish manager had come table to table checking on things but didn't. For the price, I think service needs to improve.

Band was not good and service was poor. Was a holiday (Valentines), but we waited when we had a reservation and the inconvenience wAs not acknowledged.

Sax player in band was terribly out of tune and the singer did not have the correct words to classic songs.

Food was ok tho

As usual the food was excellent, service impeccable and friendly. It’s like a very upscale “Cheers” but higher quality food and ambiance. The manager Terry is amazing and clearly loves his job. Excellent band, in fact one of the best! Pete Miller’s is our go to restaurant to celebrate holidays and special occasions. Consistently excellent every time! Love this place ❤️

We went on Valentines day early and we were seated right away. Very good live jazz music playing in the adjacent lounge and the music can be pleasantly heard in the main dinimg room their vocalist was amazing and she nailed Barbara Streisand songs.

Service was attentive and as expected. My wife loved everything about the restaurant and said several times that sbe would return reason for lacknof five stars is that Inordered a cocktail upon seating and requested at that time that it be served right away prior to the appetizer being served. Well yiu guessed it,we got the appetizer first and were about half way through it when the drinks came. The server even came to the table to aldvise us that the drink is being made now and would arrive st the table shortly.

Inordered a rib eye steak that was cooked perfectly as ordered but tougher than is what expected at a restaurant like this. The forecracker shrimp/lobster stuffed mushrooms/filet were excellent

Will definitely return but order a different cut of steak next time. All staff were professional and courteous

We originally walked in for the evening because when I checked for reservations earlier in the week it said on Tuesday through Thursday nights took reservations. When we walked in - no hostess was waiting to greet you so we waited for a long time until a manager came over to greet us, who walked away mid-sentence without taking any of our names for a wait list. He finally came back after we had been standing in line already over 15-20 minutes and said maybe 30-40 minutes. Two groups of guests left at this point for how rudely we were being treated. I was then able to put a reservation in on open table for 30 min from then. The waitress also randomly came to us but huge amounts of time in between. The food made up for the lack of any form of decent service and that no one cared the service was so bad. The live jazz music did make some great ambience for the evening.

I had a good experience. Took my girlfriend on a date there. Our first time there. The music was great. The ambiance was great. The layout was awesome. Two things that stood out to me is one, the owner cared more about us than our waitress. She took too long in moments to check on us. Took us a while to order an get refills on our drinks. Two, my girlfriend ordered the Surf and Turf. She enjoyed it but the food was not hot enough. Got cold on us. Overall a good experience and would recommend this place to other people.

After dining here several times, still can’t measure up to our first visit. Experience was “fine”, not great. Expect more from a fine dining experience at this price point. Steaks were overdone and lacking flavor. For a large party, our server should have had an assistant as it was a lot to expect her to keep up by herself. With so many wonderful steakhouse options, I don’t think we’ll return to Pete’s.
