Classic American dining in cozy wood-accented digs with live music, billiards & a patio.- Google
"The whitefish is fresh and a good alternative to steak, as is the salmon."
"The one star I will give Pete Millers is the live jazz bands."

Terrible. We made reservations on Open Table at 5PM for a romantic Valentines Day dinner. It was about 7 degrees when we got there - yet the valet had the entire parking lot roped off. Meaning we had a long walk to the door on a really cold night. When we got there the hostess people were less than thrilled to see us. They first parked us in the bar in front of a TV. Not what I had in mind for Valentines day. I asked for the cozy, dark dining room. Instead, their second attempt at seating us was to put us on the barely insulated patio beneath a bright light bulb and right beside a window. We were freezing. So we asked, again for the dining room. The manager kept telling us "Unfortunately...since we hadn't particularly RESERVED the dining room....and Unfortunately since it was such a busy night (about 3/4 of their tables were open at 5 PM...." ) I was ready to leave, but I gues the manager moved something around and put us in a great big booth in the dining room. At least it was warm. By this time I was practically in tears, as she advised me that "next time to be sure and ask for the dining room". I assured her that most likely there wouldn't BE a nex time, and there won't be. Our server, Noelle, was lovely. The food was fine - nothing special. But I am still angry about the way we were treated. Did you realize you had to reserve the dining room at a restaurant? Who knew?? So my advice is take your $200+ and go to Flemings, Sullivans, Wildfire, or any of the other plethora of steak places around here. They won't have to worry about finding a place for us next Valentine's day. Due to the managers HORRIBLE attitude and complete lack of customer service and one too many "Unfortunatelys", we'll be taking our credit cards somewhere else. Horrible, horrible, horrible customer service is my review. Don't go there. You get treated nicer at the McDonalds drive-up window.

Let me start by saying I have never written a review before, this is just not my thing. I know this is going to sound like a horror story from a bad movie but I wanted to share our experience with this place. I apologize for the long review upfront but this is the only way to describe the experience we had. Last Saturday we made reservations at Pete Miller's for 7:30pm. We had a large group of people, 5 couples so we called in ahead. We arrived at the restaurant 7:30 sharp. The table wasn't ready and we were told to wait a bit by the bar. The wait stretched to about 40 minutes but we were all in a good mood and didn't let it bother us too much. Unfortunately this was just the beginning. It took our waitress another 25 minutes to get us our first drinks. At this point we were all starving so we wanted to order the appetizers and the main course right away. A few items on the menu were not available but that was no big deal to us. In about another 25-30 minutes we finally got some of the appetizers we ordered. We were then informed they didn't have some of the entries we ordered. Now this is hour and a half into our dinner with hardly any food on the table. During this time we repeatedly asked for bread with no results. Finally we got a bus boy to bring us some bread. Another 25 minutes passes by and they start bringing out the food. Here is where the real fun begins. First of all for the two people who ordered ribs they brought one order. "That's all we have left" was the answer. We had 3 orders of sea bass and one order of grouper. What we got was 3 groupers and on sea bass. Again, when asked about it the waitress answer was "That's all we have left", no forewarning, no regard to what people ordered and complete lack of respect for the customer. Our plea with the manager didn't get us anywhere, the manager, the waitress seemed completely indifferent to the whole ordeal. The best the manager could master was "we have had a busy night". But wait, this get worse. So they send a new waiter to calm the situation down, we are now offered free deserts and coffee. Now we are simply trying to salvage our evening so we agree. They bring out 4 deserts instead of 10 and the bill. Looking at the bill we see 20% gratuity, all of us are livid at this point. We ask where are deserts are and they claim someone at the table told them not to bring anymore. We refuse to pay the gratuity and the conflict escalates. Now someone else by the name of Joe Gogliano (not sure if i got his name 100% right) gets involved and is yelling at us at the top of his longs to pay the bill and never come back and threatening with police. At this point my friends start calling their lawyers for advice. Guess what? They did call the cops. You can imagine what this felt like. My friends are all professional people. We have doctors, accountants, engineers in the group and now we are being asked by police how much alcohol we have had. The guys in the group had 1-2 drinks at the most and the wives had a bottle of wine between five people. We are completely calm, we explain what happened. One of the police officers was very nice and explained our rights on something like this. Basically we had to pay the bill including the gratuity or else this would be considered a theft. He is friendly and advises us to talk to the credit card company which we of course will. Although none of us visited Pete Miller's in recent years everyone in our group remembers the place as being classy with good food and good music. Last Saturday we found a completely different place in spirit and quality. I can honestly say this was the worst restaurant experience in my life. All of my friends will be perusing this with their credit card company and whatever other means necessary.

My go-to place for steak. I've never had a bad experience here. The service is top notch, the food is always great, and we all leave happy and full.

Great food, great music, nice, attentive staff. We are regulars here and plan to be for a long time. Where else can you find a comfortable place (never seedy) that you can do a full course meal or burghers at the bar?

So disappointed, we used to like coming here. The patio is one of our favorites, though the bar was closed for the whole summer. The place seems to be a little run down and the service is poor. For the experience the food and drinks are pricey for what it is. The local competition is doing well. They have some fun happy hours in there bars and seem to bring in the crowds. The one star I will give Pete Millers is the live jazz bands.

If I could I would not give any stars to this place. Stuff is rude and unprofessional, manager has no control of the situation, waiting time is too long not only to be seated in the half empty restaurant but also before waiter even comes to take an order. Then it takes another half an hour or forty minutes to find out that they ran out of whatever was ordered... It used to be a nice place, unfortunately not anymore...

My wife and I just got home from Pete Miller's in Wheeling. We got there early enough to take advantage of their full dinner for $24.99 special (available until 6). I had their chopped salad, Prime Rib, Onion Rings and Key Lime Pie and the portions were extremely generous and all were perfectly prepared. My wife had Tuna Tartare, Salmon, Spinach with mushrooms and Key Lime Pie. She says it, too, was perfectly prepared and tasted great. Matthew, our server was most attentive as well. Great food, great service and a great price. Can't ask for more!
