We actually ate here twice. I had the chopped salad. The burgers are delicious. Order their home made chips, excellent. We ate outside both meals.

Excellent! We tried the Lobster Bisque, the Fried Green Tomato Salad and the Nasty Chicken Biscuit, and they all were delicious! Do not miss the opportunity to dine here; I’ll make it a point to come back whenever I visit.

Miller’s is arguably the best place to hang out on the downtown mall in Charlottesville on a lazy afternoon. Great beer selection and pub food. Fun to sit outside and people watch while enjoying drinks and a meal.

The waiter I spoke with said they don't have peanuts in the restaurant, nor do they cook with peanut oil.

Located on the Historic Downtown Mall, Miller's Downtown resides in one of the oldest buildings on Main St. Inside, you will notice the old display shelves and prescription drawers of the 1920's pharmacy, the old tin ceiling, the dry ice freezer box once used for the ice cream at the soda shop, and the kitchen built from the alleyway behind the building. Second floor seating for a more quite experience is available. The third floor has Charlottesville's last quarter operated pool tables and a full service bar. The outside cafe seating is the largest on the downtown mall and is the perfect place for people watching and having lunch selected from our updated menu. Miller's Downtown has been serving Charlottesville for more than thirty years, we welcome all walks of life and embrace the uniqueness it provides our establishment. The diversity of musicians that have played at Miller's Downtown in the last thirty years still runs strong with Live Music seven nights a week with no cover charge ever.
