Fish and chips had too much batter and oil
Cesar salad - fresh but without taste
Lamb shank was not tasty - just flat
Veg soup was good and had a smoky taste to it- not sure if it was the bacon

server did a great job. No complaints, only issue, the reservation app claimed we did not show up on time. Meanwhile we did! Please make sure the software works properly. We were there right at 7 PM as per our reservation.

Local spot with good service - solid menu and upscale bar area and a nice outdoor covered patio heated in winter

The area we sat in was cold. The place was not full but service was slow. New menu items are different than previous; however, nothing special and overpriced.

The menu recently changed and is not as diversified as before. It was ok but not very inspired. Waiter had an attitude and was not attentive. Men's washroom was freezing cold and so was the water to wash your hands. The restaurant was reasonably full so perhaps it was just our bad luck.

I had made a reservation for 8 people for a surprise birthday party I organized for my boyfriend. The waitress took our drink orders and then dinner. First everyone except my boyfriend got their food. My boyfriends meal finally came and the mash potatoes were stone cold, as was the steak. Another persons food also arrived cold. I sent his plate back and we all had to start eating while he sat with an empty plate. Service afterward was spotty. I felt like I had to keep looking for a server. I ordered a bottle of wine that was out of stock and requested another.
I am not one to look for a “free meal” but there was no compensation offered for the cold food, meal delay, and wine being unavailable. We paid in full for the meal, spare a complimentary glass of Prosecco that was offered to us.
So much potential, just needs a bit more care and attention to detail. Make your customers feel like you care! Especially when they are there to celebrate a special event.

I went for brunch and had the brioche French toast with a side of bacon. It was delicious. The bacon was perfectly cooked and the portion sizes were good.

I don't think I've ever had a bad experience at Miller. Food is always delicious, service is great, atmos is the best part, especially suring summer with all the storm doors open, amazing.

The old menu was superior and we love the ambience . We come at least twice a month but if they keep that new menus and change decor we will change to The Keg. Keg has better value and better choices than your new menu and we almost left due to that

As always, outstanding. We just wish that lived much closer so we can enjoy a nice steak more often.
Thank you for another great dining experience.

Miller Tavern is my go to choice for getting together with friends. Imagine our disappointment with the changes following the recent kitchen reservation. Favourite dishes - seafood salad plate - gone! In its place an expensive and less appealing seafood platter. Lots of pricey steaks that don’t attract us. We settled for the (now single) crab cake. Even more disappointing is the change to the wine list. Not one big red by the glass worth drinking. We considered a bottle - which we couldn’t finish. Few familiar wine choices from LCBO, instead a selection of private list wines with big mark-ups, worst of all most don’t rate over 3-stars. DARN! I’m hoping they address some of these irritating changes.

Food was delicious but the service needs attention. Our server, though polite, was not very enthusiastic, nor "happy" to be serving us. Missed on a number of things.... service of the meals...crossing over in front of myself to serve another guest, no salt/pepper/etc was brought over. We got up & got our own. We had brunch there. Did not ask if we wanted a coffee, dessert after our meal. Brough my coffee, with spilt beverage on the saucer with not apology, clean up.. No spoon with my service, no sugar, which I had to ask for. And again brought the bill & reached over across me to give it to the person paying.
We sat in the indoor"patio" extension upstairs which was very airy & bright.
Still might try it again.

Disappointed with menu (apparently they are making changes) and ordered portobello burger .... which was a beef burger with some mushroom I guess in it ..... I didn’t eat it (my mistake for not checking but portobello is normally served in place of meat and it actually didn’t say beef in the outline) and ordered a very average salad instead which took a long time to arrive . My dinner companion also got a hair on the plate but given the issues I had didn’t even mention it . I will not be returning

Good experience overall. Excellent Wait Person. A bit load, but nice room etc. The only letdown was less than an interesting menu. On the other hand, the food was tasty and well-prepared.

I have been to Miller tavern before but this is first time I was back in a long time and service has gone down. Although we were a large group, they took far to long to serve us. Very disappointed.

Tried and true local spot - quality food, good service and nice atmosphere - BUT - needs a re-fresh - looking tired and worn inside/tables/furnishings. Like a dependable friend you know what to expect - just needs a new wardrobe ;) or a fresh lick of paint

Only the kitchen was renovated and the menu is shortened. Miss the Prime Rib (served only on Sat/Sun). Service is good but the decor needs some change for sure. Looks like a glorified pub (downstairs) without the TV screens upstairs.

Food, service and staff all excellent but the noise level wasn’t energetic it was just way too loud and made
Talking extremely difficult. We were sitting downstairs where the ceilings are low so that didn’t help the situation.

Very poor service. The cappuccino and lattes were undrinkable and though we were not charged for them no offer or apology was offered. It was very noisy in our area. Overall I would not return readily.

Over priced food and our food was over cooked when the manager took it back all he offered was a drink for my child who had to wait an extra almost half hour for his steak to be re made. Won’t go back.

On a quiet Monday evening service was spotty. They got two dishes wrong (one for a celiac). Washroom was appalling. Not nearly what it used to be.

I have been going to the Miller for so many years and this is the first time I have been disappointed. I was looking forward to seeing the new kitchen items since it re-opened and trying some new things, but oh my, it's not good. The new menu is out of touch with the neighborhood foodies and business crowd. There are some odd items too, which seem to be on there as they are cheap, basic food items then sharply marked up. The burger, a Miller favorite, is still called the Miller burger on the new menu but it is a shadow of its former self, i.e. much smaller.
The wine list has gone down market too. This is Hogg's Hollow, new management team, not Brampton.
I would like to add that the bar staff and servers are still fabulous, despite (apparently) quite a bit of negative feedback.

We don’t like the new menu. Our favourite food was removed. Eg : Bruschetta, sliders, Buddha salad.
The fish and chips dish was extremely small portion!

Every thing was just okay. Service was relatively slow but efficient. Food was not special except the burrata salad which was above average.
