Highly recommended for couples, families with children, friends, etc. Perfectly cooked steak, excellent sides, and top notch service! There's a live band that plays, which makes it a fun atmosphere. This restaurant offers $9 valet parking. Also, it is wheelchair accessible.

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.
