Miller’s Ale House originated in Jupiter, Florida. Jack and Claire Miller, originally from Philadelphia, opened the first location in 1988. The casual-dining restaurant was a great success, it appealed to everyone looking for great food and drinks at an incredible value. The chain is predominately in Florida and Pennsylvania, but a free-standing location opened at Town Square, last year, near the Whole Foods Market.

Since its inception, the Ale House has been an ideal meeting place for the entire family and a haven for sports fans that come to root for their favorite team. Hence the Ale House motto a “reel great place to catch a good time!” Miller’s Ale House offers a spacious indoor area with plenty of televisions and a few pool tables. There is also an outdoor patio area equipped with cozy fire pits.

Designed to attract a variety of customers, the Ale House menu consists of an array of appetizers, salads and soups, burgers, sandwiches and fajitas, steaks and seafood, house “specialties” and pastas, desserts and surprisingly a gluten free menu. At the center of the restaurant there is a full-service bar featuring wine, liquor and an extensive beer list. The best part is happy hour lasts all day. Daily drink specials include pints from $2.25, $6.00 pitchers and $7.95 domestic buckets.

For a place that is primarily a tavern, the food is a step above your usual pub grub. On our visit, we started with Mount St. Helens Zingers ($8.99), the hottest variety of the Ale House’s signature item. We washed the meaty boneless chicken wings down with pints of craft beers, Rogue Dead Guy Ale ($5.95) and Moose Drool ($4.95). For entrees, we selected the Blackened Prime Rib Sandwich ($9.95) and the Big Red ($9.95). I loved that we could substitute with sweet potato fries, they’re a major weakness of mine. The Prime Rib sandwich was bursting with flavor from the blackened spices, garlic bread and onion rings piled on top. The Big Red was a tender chicken breast smothered in hot sauce, melted jack and cheddar cheese. All in all, the dishes were above par, better than what you might expect from Applebee’s or Buffalo Wild Wings.

Miller’s Ale House is a great place to watch your favorite game, while enjoying drink specials and satisfying hunger pangs.

Miller’s Ale House is located at 6683 Las Vegas Blvd. South Las Vegas, NV 89119.

  1. Las Vegas Ale House is a great disappointment. I am from the home of the original Ale House and to hear that they were coming to Vegas was exciting!!! Even more exciting was the Florida prices in Vegas! However, the owners really need to do a severe over haul on the management staff at this location. Somewhere their skills or lack there of were over looked during the hiring process. Go there on amy given fight night and you will see what I mean. The management staff stands outside collecting the money, meanwhile inside it is so overcrowded that waitresses cannot even get to their table to serve food and drinks. Even better, when they are able to the food and drinks are dropped due to the resturaunt being over filled. When this incident was brought to the attention of said managment, I was quickly told that the General Manager was at the front door and he know what he is doing for me not to worry. As soon as he made the statement the person next to me was bumped by another person and drinks were spilled on 3 customers. If the Fire Marshall is reading this ………you have major violations going on there on fight nights. Especially, for the last fight on 11/12/11……….Not good at all!!!! I will never go back again and coming from a true Ale House lover and supporter I hope that speaks volumes to the franchise owers.
