Ok. Don’t make the mistake of ordering a salad here. It is about the size of your head. The bread is soft and delicious, the service is understated, and the ambiance is quiet, especially on a week night. The steak though - mmm mmm mmm....More

We have visited a few times and each visit is consistent. Good food, fairly priced, and smart service. Early bird cocktail special worth the price.

Located in downtown Evanston, the original Pete Miller's was founded in 1994 as a tribute to the late Harold "Pete" Miller. The restaurant celebrates his favorite things; swingin' jazz, a good honest drink & a great steak. Join us for dinner or a friendly game of billiards & experience what Pete's has to offer.
