Discovered this pub around the corner from the hotel we were at in the Loop, by Millennium Park. Very old school, which for me is not bad considering most places I visit are polished and overly "modern". Over several visits, had chance to experience both the bar and the food. Both did not disappoint. Had the Greek burger for lunch with a Half Acre Daisy Cutter. Returned another night and enjoyed my visit in this very busy and lively bar area. About 12 taps and fairly good size bottle list. The taps had some local (HA and Goose Island) and also some big nationals (Stone). The service was great and would probably call this my home bar if I lived there. The prices are about what you would expect from a big, popular bar in the heart of Chicago; not cheap but fair. (770 characters)

downtown can be a tough place if you're looking for good beer; this place is reliably okay, with an old-timey Chicago feel to it and a decent tap list (some widely distributed breweries, Firestone Walker, Stone, rotating Founders and 3 Floyds lines, as well as a few locals you're not likely to find outside of Chicago-land). (325 characters)

A - A festive very active down-town Chicago locale... Seems rich with history... A mixed crowd of tourists, locales, and office types...

Q - Solidly average in all respects... My largest complaint dealt with the fact that they rinsed every glass prior to serving leaving a slight bit of water in each glass for the pour whether from tap or bottle...

Ser - The service was hit of miss... I experienced a couple of different barkeeps during the week I was in town and they ranged the gambit from solid to indifferent... None seemed to be beer geeks, but this isn't necessarily a beer geek kind of place even the there is enough on the menu to interest most...

Sel - A solid tap selection and interesting array of bottles... While not overwhelming, there was enough to keep me interested and coming back... Being from the east coast my focus was on Half Acre, Revolution, FFF, and Boulevard offerings...

F - I had a leg of lamb sandwich which was terrific... A great value in and of itself for $10... Served like a french dip with cole slaw and fries...

V - A bit pricey, but given the downtown business district location, I guess things weren't too bad...

Overall this one is worth a visit if you're in the area, but isn't a place to be sought out... (1,257 characters)

Don’t ask me how it happened but I ended up here around 2 a.m. on St. Patrick’s day. I think I was sparred the wildest of the day’s event. The bartender clearly had the “seen it, done it, ready to go home” look on his face. And yet… he was a class act all the way. I had a beer geek moment (downtown bar with craft beer on tap? Of course I’m going to ask what’s what!) and ended up with a fantastic pale ale based on his recommendations. Will I go back? Could Miller’s Pub become a regular haunt? Not likely, no, but if I’m ever staying downtown and uncertain where to visit for a brew I could certainly do far worse. Apparently it’s an institution too, been around forever. (696 characters)

Wrapped our our weekend trip to Chicago here on a Saturday night. Arrived around 11 or so. Bar was pretty packed with folk but we managed to squeeze in and get served quickly. Decent selection of beers on tap, mostly micro, probably about 15 taps in all. Had a couple DT's which was a pleasant surprise to find in downtown chicago. Met some very nice people from around town and chatted with them for a couple hours. Left feeling somewhat tipsy but satisfied.

Bonus: the bar was located about 3 blocks from our hotel. Nice. (525 characters)
