Sorry...couldn't resist.    My daughter has an interview there today as a bartender, so I know they have a bar and probably smoking at the bar....I'm thinking like Ruby Tuesday's, but I really don't know.  Maybe she'll have some insight when she gets back this afternoon and I can jump on here and put out some better info. 8)

They have their menus online at www.millers-grill.com
Apparently this will be the 3rd since there is one in Washington, MO & another in Houston, MO.

Miller's Grill opens to the public today...they had a red carpet roll out for the last few days.  The menu looks great and they have all kinds of specialty drinks.  It's reasonably priced.  I think we'll go this evening.  Hopefully they don't close on Mondays like a lot of places do.  We'll call first.

I was invited to eat there Saturday, just a few days before opening, and I have to admit that at first when I heard about Miller's Grill being built, I wasn't very happy. (I had hoped it was going to be an Applebee's.)
 After being invited to try out the new restaurant, I am now thrilled about Miller's Grill opening here! 
 I ordered their Buffalo Salad, and I can only say,....YUUMMMMM!!!

Ate there last night and it wasn't bad.  With all the "hoopla" I was expecting more, but it was good.  I had a Cheeseburger and fries, my girlfriend had the fried catfish.  Portions are perfect size, not too much food, but enough to fill you up; I left "comfortably full", but not overfull.  My burger was a bit over-done from what I ordered, but still good; girlfriend couldn't say enough about the catfish; she loves it.

Prices are reasonable for a sit down restaurant, service was excellent and despite the full parking lot we were able to be seated immediately in the smoking section, although it appeared there was a wait for the non-smoking section.

Took the family to Miller's Grill last night and we all enjoyed it very much. The waitresses were super fun and friendly and made sure we were well taken care of. I had the Catfish dinner and it was great. My husband had Steak and Shrimp and he said it was very good. It will be our family's choice of places to eat. Prices are comparable to the other restaurants here. We are a family of 4 (and a half, 9 mo. old) and we all ate for $50.

Well, as usual a wrench got thrown into things.  When the crew was hired, they were told they would get their first "Miller's Grill" shirt free and after that they have to pay for them.  What happens?  Their first check had a deduction of $17.50 for their shirts.  Do other places (McDonald's, etc.) make their employees buy their shirts when they've been hired and have to wear the shirt to work there?

When I worked at a sporting goods store, we had to buy our t-shirts. I thought that it was retarded. I think that if they said that they were going to provide them w/shirts they should not have took it out of their pay check. That's deceitful. I'd definitely complain.
Title: Re: Miller's Grill
Post by: Eeyore on July 06, 2007, 09:06:56 PM
     Some places make you purchase the uniform and others do not -- I've worked for both kinds.
I wonder if this could have been an error - if they were put in the computer as an employee but not new -- It just may get fixed and the next pay check will have the $17.50 in it.  I'd look into it and mention the first shirt promise to get it fixed

     Is it possible that there is a second shirt coming in short order so that people can wash one and wear one, especially if they work 2 nights in a row?

I had the appetizer sampler, and it was good, the hot wings were great. The food was OK, the salad was edible, no thrill there. Another time I had the Porter House steak and it was OK.  Broccoli was cooked (Some places serve it undercooked or cold.), toast was just OK. No big deal, don't think I will go out of my way to eat there a third time. Mylisa had Chicken Parmesan and liked it. My first meal was ribs and they were again just OK. Not one thing, other than hot wings stood out as being great (Similar to the way Dominoes makes them, maybe more hot sauce.) Service was very good I might add. Was seated immediately in smoking section, non smoking was a wait. Very roomy inside the building, unlike Rubys.

2.8 stars.

      Perhaps we should just stick with the HUB though.

Glad to see someone else thought it was "okay".  We went and spend $70 for our family of 4... Steak was a little dry.  Fish was good.  Chicken was okay.  The biggest three disappointments were the soft drinks, potato soup, and our service...b/c of the boil order all they had was pepsi or sierra mist.  It took them about a half hour to bring us an apple juice as well.  And the baked potato soup...I expected a regular baked potato soup and it just tasted like velveta cheese with uneven chunks of potatos and carrots (carrots in baked potato soup???)...I asked the waitress if it was Chedder Baked Potato...she patted me on the back like a kid and told me it was baked potato.  We really didnt love that the waitress patted the table EVERY time she came over (DH felt like he was at a black jack table in the casino)...and in my opinion it was too often...

I ate there tonight with a friend.

It was "OK."  Nothing phenom or anything though.  It WAS far superior to our local Ruby Tuesday's though.  The service was really good on our visit tonight.

Using Rick's rating scale, I give it a 3.  Average.

Post by: OLDigahmah on July 11, 2007, 02:17:23 AM
We at there tonight.  I had ribs, fried potatoes and baked beans with house salad.  I thought the food was very good.  Ribs were tender and had good flavor.  Potatoes were real potatoes fried with onions, yum.  Baked beans had a good taste.  Salad trimmings were cut in small pieces, which I really like,  Nothing worse than getting a salad with a quarter of a tomatoe cut up on the top of it.  I'll be glad when the boil order is lifted, they didn't have any fountain drinks and I'm not a bottle soda lover.  Service was great!  I will definately go again, but a little to expensive to make it a once a week place.  Ambience is nice.

Went for lunch yesterday. Waitress was great, had the southwest burger and it was great. Onion rings were pretty good but not up to Sonics. My other half likes coke and had to drink Pepsi. She didn't complain. The beer was nice and cold. I'll go back.

I have eaten there a couple of times food is ok and really happy about them having pepsi products because I really dislike coke products. Maybe they should invest in fountains that carry both products.

Fridays are hubby and mine's normal " carry-out dinner " night...a reward for surviving another rough week at our respective jobs.

I didn't want KFC and much as I like El Jimador...one can get rather burned out on them after a while....so I decided to try Miller's Grill. I got hubby the catfish dinner and I got the light chicken breast....

Both dinners were ready to go in a reasonable amount of time and still warm when I got them home. Hubby liked his catfish and the chicken breast with wild rice was excellent !

If I were to say anything about what I might not have liked about Miller's, it would be that I was not aware the "to go dinners" have to be ordered and picked up from the bar area. I don't drink and since I was  by myself I was a tad uncomfortable about this...but then that is just me.

Perhaps next time I can call ahead and let them know what time I would be picking up the meals and zip in and out without having to sit at the bar.

Post by: tanya0220 on July 14, 2007, 04:27:16 AM
We went tonight and I must agree it was okay. I was upset that with the boil order you have to pay for bottled water, but I understand.
We went late, so me and the girls got the sampler appetizer. For $10 I would have expected a little more food on it, but maybe again it was later
The girls had ice cream and it is pretty hard to mess that up. My husband had the steak sandwich, it looked good, he liked it just said it was messy. Wasn't a fan of the fried potatoes, I think because we make them different.
Not sure if we would make the effort to go again. Service was slow and we really didnt order anything

     Well, Sat night we had a babysitter come over and decided to try out Miller Grill.  All I can tell you is they have a nice parking log when it is empty.  It was 6:30 and as we pulled in, a couple was pulling out and motioned to us that they were closed.  There was a sign on the door, but we did not go read it. 
     We turned around and had dinner at Stefano's

Haley Aiello (from Washington, MO) was the general manager.  She was traveling down T-Hwy (4 miles North of Waynesville) and ran off the road, the car rolled over 3 times and she was ejected.  From what I heard, the car landed on top of her and she was killed.  They didn't find her until about 8:00 a.m. Saturday.  The wreck happened at about 2:00 a.m.  No alcohol involved.

     I am so sorry to hear that.

We tried Miller's the other day.  I won't say that we will never go back, but I won't be in a hurry to darken the door anytime soon. 

1st strike was when the server seated herself at our table while taking our order.  Some folks might like that, I do not.  I don't know you, I have never seen you before in my life.  DON'T cozy up with us like you know us while serving us. 

2nd strike was when it was obvious the server didn't listen to one thing we said while ordering.  NO onions on the salad please, extra tomatoes, extra ice in our drinks.  I know it seems trivial but darn it, I'm pleasant and very easy to get along with.  Just bring the food to me the way I order it ok and I will be a happy camper.  I wasn't a happy camper digging out all the damn onions out of my salad as I hate raw onions.  Ditto for the DH.  Nothing that we had specifically asked for was done. The requests were all ignored.

THIRD STRIKE . Food came out.  I got the grilled chicken that was supposed to come with the sauteed onions and peppers.  My onions and peppers were crunchy.  Chicken was incredibly bland.  Tasted like a plain chicken breast had been thrown on the grill sans seasoning as it surely didn't taste like it had any and then they threw the onions and peppers on top and put cheese on it and then melted it.  Bland bland ...  did I say bland?  Baked potato would not even melt the butter (after letting it sit while I tried to eat the chicken).  Requested another baked potato after showing the first one to our server (with the butter ball still intact inside).  The 2nd one was a bit warmer but not by much.  After hearing everyone rave about their baked potatoes I am perplexed about what all the hoopla is about?  Mine was horrible.

They weren't busy as we were there in the middle of a Saturday afternoon and I only saw maybe 3 other tables in the entire restaurant.  Our server was way over the top with too much forced enthusiasm.  I was expecting her to break into a cheer right there tableside as her demeanor reminded me of the skit on SNL with the cheerleaders.  READY *CLAP* OK... 

Don't come to my table and prattle away  "how is everything?  and then before I can tell you...you say WELL?  Mind you she ran in all together as in..." how is everything, well?".. No it was not well...   

I'm sure that she was just trying to be overly friendly but it just rang lame.  Leave the cheerleader bubblehead perky to the young girls that might be able to carry it off. 

All in all the food was ok.  Just ok.  Service was not ok.  Don't invade my "bubble" when I don't know you and then blow off every little request that we made. 

We found out later from someone in the know that my suspicions on how my chicken was prepared were pretty much on target.  Get the chicken grilled, slap it together with raw veggies, throw in under the salamander and get it out to the table.  The menu description was far better than the finished product.

I was expecting much much more that what we got.  Like I said... it was just ok.

at best.

Went last night for the first time and were NOT impressed at all.  Husband's strip steak looked like a big ole hunk of butt roast and was tough.  Ceaser salads had boiled egg in it.  Wild rice was sort of like rice-a-roni.  Grilled chicken tasted of strong grill burn.  Grandson loved his cheeseburger and fries, but was sick with stomach cramps before we got home.  Well, we had to go once to check it out and I guess it was worth $65.00 to know not to go again.

Well....  Against our better judgement we did darken their door again.  Heck I'm fair game plus I was hoping that our first visit was just a fluke and that we would be thrilled with it on the 2nd go round'.
Dear Lord almighty.  If I tell someone that I am even thinking of going again there soon, would someone just slap some sense into me and be done with it.
Weekday afternoon.  After 4 p.m. and well before 5 p.m. timewise.  Not your usual peak dining hours.  The restaurant is quiet.  ONE other table in the entire place.  We go in and request a table that is near a window.  Last time they stuck us in one of the corner booths and I never felt so cooped up in my life.  No window, high backs, stuck in a corner.... this place reminds me of a mouse maze. 
Hmmmmmm this shouldn't be a problem you would think.  Not sooooooo.  She tries to get us seated at one of their smaller tables (not the ones by the windows).  I politely tell her that "no I do not want to sit at them..." and I gesture towards one of the bigger booths that are right by the windows.  AGAIN she tries to steer me to the small tables that are the furthest away from the windows.  I stop, tell her that I do NOT want to sit there ...that I want to sit HERE and I gesture towards the booth.  She walks right past it and plunks down the menus at one of their interior booths which is NOT by the darned freaking window.  What part of " I want to sit HERE" does this girl not understand. 
I can see exactly where she was going with this treatment.  The table that I wanted to sit at was a large booth.  We were two in number.  Pretty obvious that she didn't want to waste a large booth on a small party.  Well I could halfway see that thought IF the darned place was busy, but it WASN'T.  Just sit me where I want to sit... feed me and I will be LONG gone well before you get your normal dinner rush. 
I haven't even sat down and I am already weary and tired of being disregarded (see a pattern here?).  I don't feel like arguing but I don't want to cause a scene.  By this time my other half has headed to the restroom and I just sit there.  Getting angrier every minute.  Looking across the dining room at the table where I wanted to sit and basically wasn't allowed to.  I know it might seem trivial to some but it wasn't just about the darn table.  It was about accomodating a customer who had a simple request.
Waiter finally strolled up to the table looking bored out of his gourd and acting like he would rather be anywhere but at our table.  No welcome, no hi, how are you doing, nada, zippity do dah, zilch.  He made us feel like I should of apologized to him for "making" him come wait on us.  By this time my other half came back from the restroom (waiter had already left)..and I just sat there thinking.... 
Why in the world were we here?  We had one bad experience and decided to give it a second try.  It was obvious that this second go round' was not working out either...  Why in the heck should I spend my hard earned cash at a place that:
A. Doesn't really care for their customers as evidenced in their poor service.

B.  Completely disregards basic customer requests for no apparent reason other than to dictate their own manifesto.
I look at my other half and said, "why are we still here?".  It is so obvious that they really just don't care.  Why should we suffer through the poor treatment and then pay for it? I don't think so.
Revelation time.  We got up and left.

Went over to Chopstix where we were greeted warmly and with a smile.  We had excellent service, great food and WE GOT TO SIT WHERE WE WANTED TO...  wooooooooooo hoooooooooo.  ONLY IN AMERICA RIGHT?

I am thinking that at some point that hostess was told to put small groups at small tables, and was afraid to tell carpenter that, so she tried to sidestep the whole thing.

I don't care if it is the busiest time of day, if I am paying for a meal and there is sufficient room, I'll sit where I've requested, even if it means moving myself after the hostess leaves, and having a convo with the manager.

I have eaten at Miller's Grill several times and like the food, my only problem with them is the service. I've only got good service once.

I was there during the boil order, I ordered a beverage from the bar once i got it I then asked for a glass of water, the server told me i would have to purchase a bottle of water.  I was mad because i just paid 7.25 for a drink and now had to purchase a bottle of water.

We ate there a few weeks ago and everything went alright.  Food was good and service was fine.  But then again there was hardly anyone there.

We went to eat there a few weeks ago. I had the mahi mahi and loved it. But my husband had the steak and he said that it was just OK. I didn't like that it was pretty cold in the restaurant. It's OK to keep it cool....but this was a bit very cool. Service was good. I would give them a 3 on rick's scale.

I went once when they first opened Hated the tall booth I had to hoist a napkin up on my fork and wave it to finally get some service. I witnessed a bus boy wipe everything left on the table onto the floor (crumbs and food particles) I waded through the crumbs and left.

Okay i do not know why my family decided to give this place another shot. We were there for about and hour and a half and the food was horrible. My daughters got grilled cheese and we had to keep asking the server where it was. I got shrinp/broccoli pasta and when i got it tasted microwaved my husband got a steak and it was tiny and rubbery
They took off my pasta because I didnt eat it but our bill was still $40. Our server was great very nice. We will never go there again. Definetly not kid friendly when you have to wait so long for your food

I've never been there in the evening, but a friend and I love to go there for lunch.   There is hardly anyone ever there when we go.  The food is always good, and our service is great.  I have never had a complaint.  Not even about the price, but that's only because I don't eat very much.  (I had Gastric Bypass) So, my bill is never over $5-$10.  But, I guess after reading everyones comments on here....I'll know not to ever go in the evening time!

Ate there tonight.. Was seated by a friendly hostess, who remembered to offer me a booster seat for my daughter. My server was prompt, but seemed some what robotic when it came to personality.. The entire female staff was attractive I must say, just a little better than Ruby's, yet most seemed to not have that genuine friendly thing going.. The male who helped the server bring out meals was the most friendly....  I ordered the KC Strip steak and they said they were out of it, and the Porter House steak, so I ordered the Rib Eye.. The rib eye was ordered medium rare and came out leaning well toward rare but no blood was dripping. The steak was tasty, large, juicy, and tender. The Soup of the day was chicken and dumpling, it was OK.. The Texas toast, much larger than Ruby's was hot and tasty, and better than  Ruby's.. The baked potato reminded me of a tennis ball but only because it had a lump of butter and a bigger lump of sour cream on it to make it large enough to qualify.. The potato was not hot just warm, and I had asked the waitress for a lot of butter, and a little sour creme, yet she did not see to it that this happened for me. We had the peel and eat shrimp, and I don't think anyone can screw that up.. My daughter had the cheeseburger and fries, and seemed to like the burger, she also ate my cottage cheese which is another item that is hard to ruin.. Overall experience was better than I expected. Rating is a 3.55 today, thanks mostly to the steak... This meal came to 38.00...

After seeing a waitress drop crackers from a salad plate on the floor as she was coming out of the kitchen, that was it for us.  She put them back on the plate and didn't miss a beat...and we were in plain view of this.  Didn't even occur to her that anyone saw.  Yes, crackers were in plastic, but still could have picked up germs that went on the plate.  I know this happens in restaurants, but she could have tossed those in the trash and got a new pack.  I feel bad for not following her to the table where the salad went.

Ate there again tonight. I have the Porterhouse Steak it was wonderfull.. The potato was hot, they gave me the extra butter I asked for on my potato. The toast was good, the ceaser salad was terrible.. My moms steak was impossible to chew, and my mom will eat steak without cutting off the fat, so if she complained, it had to be bad..
 
BUT! My steak was awesome.. Then again for 22 dollars or so, it had better been..

I have been here twice and it is great!

The Chicken Fajita is SO good and filling. My husband had the rueben once and it's wonderful as well.

The mixed drink "Tie Me To The Bedpost" is THE BEST mixed drink I have EVER had. It's huge too! I was feeling a little on the tipsy side when hubby and I were leaving both times.. oops! :)

My boyfriend and I went there...our server greeted us with...."What would you like to drink?" We told her water...Then "You ready to order" we just ordered some appetizers, Chips and salsa and a sampler. I figured the chips and salsa would come out first...no. The bartender brought us the sampler (she was very nice) asked if our server brought out or order of Chips and salsa, we said no, she shook her head and said sorry. (She brought them to us though) The server came and checked on us once, No refills. Took us like 20min to get our check after we were finished eating. What I thought was weird was....I kept seeing servers going in the bathroom area with To Go boxes, so I thought maybe there was a different room back there...so I checked it out LOL only bathrooms....soooooooo I found that odd. Anyways..Food was great, restaurant was clean, bartender was great! We should have ate at the bar I guess!!

So me and some friends ate there this weekend...all of us walked away in a foul mood. When we first got there some kid had rap music blaring on his laptop computer standing up dancing around in the smoking section. After all of our rude comments that this isn't a club he finally left. Our waiter even though i knew him his ability to refil drinks sucked. and the food yes that too all sucked. I won't be going back and have no desire to go back, i would rather have crappy service at ruby tuesdays than both at this place.

I've found that when you get a server that you like, ask their name. I have "my" servers now at Chopsticks and at Millers and am always guaranteed great service. I make it a point to tip well. We went to Millers today and had the potato soup (which I normally love). This time, it was missing a couple of items, was cold, and our server was...shall we say...less than good? :D We tipped the hostess more than the server because the hostess was the one to continually come check on us, took care of the soup problem, and brought our drinks. She even refilled the glass of ice we always ask for. Of course, that was not "my" server - it was someone else.

Post by: angelamo on September 08, 2008, 08:03:47 PM
Yep. We went back today (our regular server works days M-F), and the potato soup was delicious! The service was terrific! And we did tell the manager about the previous days events. Turns out...the hostess is new (and she was that good!) and the server will be talked with.

Oh! Forgot to add that we also told the manager about this thread....so maybe he'll log on and see what people are saying about Miller's and you'll see better service! :)

My friend took her kids to Miller's Grill last night for Valentine's Day. She said the place smelled like cigarette smoke and the smell hits you in the face when you walk in.  Why can't people not smoke for an hour when they go out to eat?  I have smoked and am a recent quitter, but I didn't smoke in a resturant when I was eating.  It really isn't fair to non-smokers.

You know what else isnt fair, when I go out to have a nice quite dinner, and theres people with screaming kids, or when I go grocery shopping and theres screaming kids, Why do people have to have kids that scream, and take them out in public places.  They should be muzzled or left at home.  We should put a ban on kids.  ARENT OPINIONS FUN!

AGREE!!  We were at Cracker Barrell standing behind a family with a couple of little monsters who were yelling and hitting each other and scooting on the floor and touching all the candy and the parents are just ignoring the whole mess.  So they went to be seated and the waiter asks if we have a seating preference and my husband says, "as far away from those people as you can get us."  Cracked me up.
