Took the wife out to dinner and I will never go there again. The atmosphere was nice, staff friendly, but service was slow. Appetizer was good, but they brought us the wrong entree, so the manager offered us soup or salad while we waited which was nice and the soup was very good. When our entrees finally came we both had Seafood combination platters and the only thing that was cooked right was the fried clams. The shrimp and fries were soggy, the scallops and fish were raw in the center. I was very disappointed and will never go there again

Went for lunch. Started with lobster bisque - obviously opened from a can. Wasn't hot & didn't even come with fresh bread, just a package of crackers. Had the blackened tilapia sandwich - took 2 bites...couldn't eat it. It was replaced with a salad (thought that would be safe), asked for it with the dressing on the side. Of course it came with the dressing on it - and completely over dressed.

we ate here 2 nights in a row and the 1st night was yesterday and the buffalo shrimp was "crispy and hot" as well as the hot sauce being perfect. Tonight, though, the buffalo shrimp was not crispy, it actually was served "luke warm" and it was "limp" no crisp whatsoever. To us, that's not consistant and the only reason we went back tonight was for that particular shrimp and we were disappointed. However, the Walnut, Apple,Grape and Blue Cheese Salad was Excellent. First it was served w/o the Grapes or Walnuts, but, then the Manager came w/the correctly prepared salad and he deducted it from our bill. We did not expect that because we ate it, but, we were pleasantly surprised when he did that for us. We only live a few miles away, and this was our 1st 2 times in this Miller's and we did enjoy it! We love to watch sports, Phillies won a game while we were there and that was a crowd exciter, and my hubby loves when Philly Fans go crazy with a home run and a win! LOL Anyway, we will definitely go back, we love the atmosphere and we are vegetarians, so we found another place to get a meal we enjoy.

I love the conch fritters at Miller's. They are really good. I would recommend the restaurant to anybody. Try the conch fritters, Bistro burger and the dessert.

I know that the food is important and it is but one of the additional attractions of the Ale House is the warm comfy feel of the place. The wait staff, the servers, the bar crew help give this restaurant a nice neighborhood feel. Oh yeah and the food is great! Very good value and very tasty. My fav is the Baked Seafood Sampler but of the many items my wife and I have tried we haven't from anything we wouldn't order again. This place is our go-to place when we don't feel like cooking at home.

My wife and I for the first time went to the Miller Ale House at Grant Ave. and Roosevelt Blvd. We arrived at approx. 6:30pm and when we approuched the greeters the three young girls continued talk to each other for about 30 seconds before greeting us. The girl then handed me a piece of paper with a number on it and said that there's a half hour wait. I then asked her how would we be notified, by a PA system or how and she just said yes. My wife and I were waiting outside for about one hour when I saw someone point up to a box high on the wall with a flashing numbers on it. I went back to the greeter and asked if our number was called and it was. we waited another 15 minutes before we were seated. We sat and waited 10 minute before the waitress came to are table . After placing our order the waitress disappeared and a while later someone else brought our appetizer to the table. We continued to wait while the table across from us with a family of four, who sat 10 minutes after us were already eating their main course. My wife and I waited until 8:30pm and still our meal had not yet been served. The waitress finally came back to the table and we told her we were leaving, she walked away never explaining why our food was delayed. She then returned and we paid for the appetizer. As we were about to leave someone who appeared to be a manager came to our table with only one of the meal and when we told him we were leaving he only said "OK" and he walked away without saying anything more. I strongly won't recommend this restaurant to anyone. We felt as though it didn't matter to them if we were there or not as customers. The appetizer we eat was not even tasty and the sevice was poor. I'm 50 years old and have eaten in many restaurants some good and some not so good and even with the not so good the service or the food made up for one or the other. But I can't say that about Miller Ale House because both the food and especially the sevice was subpar. I will never return.

The food is really good and not outrageous in price and the staff is very friendly. My only complaint is that this is a bar/resturant and the tables should be used for customers who are there for dinner. The Phillies game was on last night and there were several tables being used by groups just having a few beers. The booth right at the door was occupied by to guys for over three hours and only had one of there bucket specials, 5 beers for $10. I know because I kept watching them to see if they were going to get up so people who were there for dinner could get a table. Wait staff is loosing tips and groups of people are waiting to be seated for dinner and these people are not moving to let people sit down to eat. Most bar/resturants have a rule that if you are not eating, the tables are to be used for customers dining in, or a limit is set as to how long you can occupy a table on a busy night. I do like the food and will go there again, just not on a night of a big sporting event on TV.
