Yes. I would consider returning for dinner. However, the venue and meal were nothing special. Our waitress was very helpful and attentive to our needs throughout the meal.

Service was friendly and completely unrushed, perfect for the occasion. Food was delicious with large servings. Band was impressive. Will return for sure!

Ambience and decor were very nice, but the food was extremely slow coming out of the kitchen. Our steaks were cold and all the food took very long to come out. The manager cut our bill in half which was a very nice concession but overall a disappointing experience.

Very disappointed in our experience...understaffed and extremely slow. Food was only mediocre. Not worth the price. Reservation was at 5:30...did not get food until after 7 pm. Slow to take our orders, get drinks...and food itself. Had no dessert...everyone was just ready to go! Not happy and won’t be back.

Had Mother's Day Brunch. Was in last seating of the day, and all tables remained well stocked throughout our 2 hour slot. There was some delay in seating at our reservation time; after 25 minute wait finally had to ask to be seated in booth that was not being utilized given handicap condition of one party member - which they quickly agreed to and had us seated.

The food was great but the set up with buffet by front door and you had to excuse yourself with food to get by those waiting was a terrible experience and ruined the brunch.

I took some people there for a Mother's Day brunch. It was as you would expect a big quasi expensive place to be... buffet menu but solid options and a carvery. It was kinda loud but there was live music which was great. The only real criticism I have was how the traffic flow of customers coming in and customers getting food was set.

It was a one off so go for dinner and see how it is.

Seemed as though we were asking for to many things that should be automatic in a restaurant like this. Service was poor. Food was ok, nothing exceptional. Better off going to downtown Naperville to Sullivan’s, Hugo’s or Catch 35. They won’t last if they don’t step up their game.

My experience was very poor. The Waitress was outstanding, she was a blond lady with a pink tie, loved her! The chef needs to be replaced, I had the lobster bisque and it was tasteless, my steak was good but my companions was over done and did not look as advertised. The banana's foster was very disappointing, the cookie base was stale and tasted like the refrigerator and the foster sauce was lacking in substance and amount. Also I asked for a booth and they told me I had to wait in the bar for one. Well they seated us and there were a row of beautiful private booths behind that was never used and were empty when we seated and never were used the whole time I was there. Really upset me. I will never recommend this restaurant.

Nothing good to say about the food - all 4 entrees were horrible even salads were bad. How can a restaurant not know how to prepare and serve lobster tail! Manager offered gift cards to come back...but not enough for us to make the mistake again.

Service appears to be a continuing challenge. We were here in December and chalked up inconsistent service to the holidays and being newer as an operation. Here at the end of April the bugs should be out of the process. Once we had our server the service was ok, but we had to go find someone to help. The drinks weren’t totally accurate, but everything else was. The restaurant seemed short staffed based on having to wait 10 minutes to get a table, while there were plenty of available tables. I am expecting more attentive service for Steak house.

Was disappointed on how limited the dinner menu was. Being allergic to seafood, my choices were limited. Disappointed that prime rib was not the weekend menu as a special.

The dinner was prepared well. The service was good. The price point for the type of restaurant and food was over priced for the area. I understand they have live music but it was in the bar area and unable to enjoy from the dining room. This is a newer restaurant and was formally a pub. The interior has not changed much.

We thought the food was good, but our frustration was with their oddly scooped shaped dinner plates. A knife couldn’t rest on the edge without sliding into the food. Not a good design or useful and super annoying.
The restaurant is pretty much Tommy Nevis bar with table cloths.

First time at Pete Miller’s, I must admit the food was really good, their seafood is awesome!!! You can truly say it was fresh, totally worth it. Sadly our visit did not go without a flaw, for starters, we made a reservation, when we got there we were told that we were going to need to wait, however there were several empty tables, after about 20-25 minutes and nobody coming in we were taken to our table that had been empty since we walked in, needless to say there were no less than 10 tables empty. Next, here comes the waitress, very rude lady, seemed to be having a rough day, she kept on dissapering and took an average of 20 minutes each time we ordered drinks. Great dinning experience aside of the service.

Food was excellent. Service was ok. Server didn’t really know anything about the wine list. Would have been nice for the manager to stop by the table to see how everything was. The prices were a bit high for the level of service.

Had dinner here a few nights ago. I ordered the delmonico ribeye medium rare. At $46, I was expecting a melt in your mouth taste experience. That was not what I got. I received a medium to medium well, drier than expected piece of meat. It had nice seasoning, but the texture was dry. I’ve had steaks in all price ranges and this steak was not of the same caliber as some of the cheaper steaks I have had. The sides were tasty and the service was friendly, but the main event was lackluster and I won’t be back again. Not to mention the Alaskan crab cocktail for $25 consisted of the equivalent of ONE crab leg. I don’t mind paying a good price for good food; I feel you get what you pay for, but the price was not equivalent to the quality/quantity that is expected of something that is priced this way. This was very disappointing

Friday night only 1 bartender in a packed bar. She did her best but really could have used help.
Dinner service was excellent but very disappointed by the steak. For a 45 day dry aged bone in Kansas City, it should have been excellent and it wasn’t.
Great wine list.
Oysters were great.
Dessert was great.
Overall, way overpriced for the quality.
If I return, it would be drinks apps and dessert. But that’s a big “if”.

Decided to celebrate my husband's birthday here. We were warmly greeted and welcomed like old friends. We both appreciated the decor and enjoyable music as we made our selections of lobster bisque, lamb chops with a lobster tail side, roasted mushrooms and mashed potatoes for the birthday boy. I had glazed shrimp with mushroom risotto. All of the food was fabulous, including desserts of cheesecake and strawberry gelato (HUGE serving). Although service wasn't super-speedy, we felt relaxed, never rushed or in need of attention. Very happy to have found our way into Pete Miller's and plan to return soon.

I was really excited to eat here. I have high expectations but was completely underwhelmed. We had a drink at the bar before our reservation. I got a drink right away but my husband had to wait a while. Once we were sat at our table we noticed a television in our dining room. I am not against TVs in restaurants but not in a fine dining establishment.

We didn’t get any bread, which I thought was odd and when I asked for a black napkin they said they didn’t have any. Service was slow, but the food was great! It still felt like Tommy Nevins to me. I think there is a lot the restaurant needs to do in order to be considered fine dining. We most likely will not go back.

I planned a special dinner as a surprise for my husband with friends. Everything from the reservation , champagne toast, appetizers, and dinner was perfect. The food was amazing, our waitress Carol was super friendly and right on top of things from beginning to end. We highly recommend Pete Miller’s. Its great to have a nice restaurant close by. For special occasions or just a drink or snack in the bar, its a great place to go!

We enjoyed the evening. The food was good but not spectacular based on the dished we ordered. The rib recipe could use some work. The service was good except it seemed like the server 'hovered'/was at the able a little too often. Would go back. Would try something else on the menu.
