Regular Hours

General Info:
In 1950 four brothers of Greek-born parents pooled their resources and purchased the then flailing Miller s Pub from the Miller family, who established the restaurant in 1935. After this purchase, the brothers did not have the $500 to change the sign on the pub, so the Miller name remained. The pub became a famous late-night spot where on almost any night of the week one might spot local and international celebrities, such as Chicago baseball legends Bill Veeck and Harry Caray who were regular customers. Menu items include appetizers, such as calamari, onion rigs, buffalo wings and mozzarella sticks; ala carte salads; seafood, such as whitefish, salmon, catfish and jumbo shrimp; Italian items that include pasta, spaghetti and ravioli; Miller s World Famous Ribs; steak, chops, roast beef and prime rib; sandwiches; desserts; and a variety of other miscellaneous items, such as wiener schnitzel. Miller s Pub is located in Chicago.

Avoid this place! We were there tonight and the food was terrible. The owners should taste what they serve. Then again maybe they don't care anymore. I ordered the 'World Famous' Canadian-style ribs. On which world are they Famous? They were tough, chewy and left an unpleasant taste in my mouth. The baked potato was bland and seemed old. My wife had the whitefish which was just filled with bones. No other restaurant we have eaten in the past ever had the nerve to serve food this bad. I will never set foot in there again and I advise anyone else who has heard of this place to forget the hype and the venerable history and consider it just another tourist trap.

The ribs may be famous but oh what a burger.

Millers Pum is apparently known for its ribs but I happened in off the street and wanted a burger and what a burger it turned out to be. I would definently rate the hamburger at Millers as the best I have ever had. I can't wait to try the ribs on my next trip to Chicago. Oh, the service should also get a mention as being nothing less than sensational as one should expect from an establishment of this caliber.

Good Ribs, but nothing ""famous"" about them

I'm trying to figure out why all these restaurants have a claim to have ""Famous Award Winning..."" food to their names. Obviously, one of them is ribs. So after seeing this place being a former Citysearch ""Best of..."" winner, I had to come and try for myself to see if their 'Famous"" ribs were the real deal. Walking in I can tell that the place was spacious, equiped with a long bar and an upstairs area. The place is surrounded with attractive vintage stained glass and with pictures with famous local and national celebrities on their wall. Their menu is pretty basic, mainly showcasing thier BBQ (which was the reason i was there). I ordered the Ribs & Chicken which was a 1/2 slab of wet rubbed ribs with a chicken leg and thigh and a portion of corn on the cob and a plate of fries. But after the first bite of the ribs, I thought to myself, ""What's so famous about this?"" Yes, they were good, but not to the extent I'd call them 'Famous"". It's like I can cook my own ribs at home and brush on some store bought sauce on them. Good and not too dry, but nothing that I personally would give an award to. The chicken was nice and moist which I enjoyed. Actually, I expected fried chicken or chicken wings, but I enjoyed the surprise. The fries were surprisingly my favorite. Not too salty thick cut fries that were fried just right. Of course who could turn down the corn. I just wished they served a whole ear of corn and not some small portion that was boiled and not grilled. It's not a bad place to have lunch at. But personally I think it's becoming more touristy (hense the big cabinets of t-shirts and caps you see when you walk in) and I've had better ribs elsewhere. Come for lunch, but don't expect the ribs to be anything ""Famous"".

Late-night sit-down dinner with a pub.

The first time I came to Miller's, I had been out for a late night at The Art Institute with friends. We couldn't get the bartender's attention because he was avoiding eye contact with anything that could be mistaken for humanity. It was 10:00 and my girlfriend and I wanted a decent meal that involved martinis, so we hung in there and waited for a table. The hostess eventually took up upstairs. Nice tablecloths, small tables.

The food was OK. Sure, I liked the Canadian ribs, but I've had better. I think the salad was good - it seemed fresh and they went nuts with crumbled bleu cheese, something I can admire, as my body consists of 40% bleu cheese.

Service was very good, but I keep thinking about their menu. Miller's has somehow merged a chophouse menu with a Greek menu. The Sous Chef must have four arms, and a multiple personality disorder to manage this trick. I'm not saying it's bad...I am saying it's... um, *special*. Shine on, you crazy diamonds. Now I know where to go for French Onion Soup and Mousaka. Props for the creme brulee. From me, that's not saying much because I've never met one I truly despised.

I probably should give them a second try. The place was jam-packed when I visited and maybe not all of their customers feel like a component on an assembly line.

Maybe if we were buzzed, my dining companions and me would have thought Miller's seemed homey in a pub-ish sot of way? I could try that next time. I'll get my buzz on if someone can tell the bartender that we could use some lube. If I have to track him down with a Geiger counter, I'm outta there.

Take it or leave it...

We went for the ribs and the service. The ribs were good, in that the sauce was great, but the ribs themselves were not very tender. Coleslaw was runny, and my salad was just average. The service was good and very friendly. The staff were commenting alot on what was on the television. The place has a great atmosphere nad is charming. However, with average food, I can't highly recommend the place.

Great Food and Nearly Unparalleled Service!

Getting to Miller's is high on my list every time I visit Chicago. The food is always superb, and the staff truly goes out of their way to provide exceptional service. Case in point - my wife and I dined upstairs one evening, thoroughly enjoyed our meal, and headed back to our hotel. Half way down the block from the restaurant, the Maitre-D finally caught up with us and returned my wife's gloves, which she had inadvertently left on the table. We thanked him profusely, but he just shrugged it off, as though he didn't go above and beyond the call. He left an impression just as positive to me as Miller's mouth watering Filet (which I highly recommend, if you don't choose the ribs). These folks make great food, and treat their patrons like honored guests. Miller's is the complete package.

The Best!

This place is reasonable, and has great service! The Greek Salad was absolutely amazing, I will be visiting this restaurant again.

Not as good as I expected

We stopped at Miller's after some sightseeing, and found it to be a bit dark and extremely cold (temp-wise). The patrons all seemed to be tourists. We both ordered salads, and thought they were good but nothing to rave about. I guess I was expecting more, given the very high rating. Maybe the bar scene is better, but bring a jacket!

Good BBQ... and White beer

WHITE BEER is the way to go... the BBQ was smoky and tasty... the prime rib was not bad, either. But oh my god, the white beer was to die for.... you definitely need to get some when you are in town next time. White beer white beer... did I mention their white beer is excellent?
