Millers Orlando Alehouse - Orlando / Florida Guide
Florida Guide > Dining
On our last visit to our home in November we decided to visit the newly opened Millers Alehouse located at Orange Lake directly opposite the Olive garden Restaurant at Rolling Oaks Commons.
Millers are a chain of over fifty restaurants with several in the Orlando area so when one opened within an easy drive of our High Grove home we had to try it and we were not disappointed. The Alehouse is a sports bar / restaurant with 3 distinct seating areas. There is a choice of booth or high top table seating inside or you can sit outside by the patio bar.
We visited three times in all during our two week stay and chose to sit in the booths each time. The restaurant has a very large seating capacity of almost 500 so although it was busy on each of our visits we never had to wait longer than 10-15 minutes to be seated. I would imagine it gets much busier and a lot louder when there are big sporting events on as there are over 60 HD TV’s arranged around the outside of the seating areas. The outside bar area seemed to be the liveliest area when we visited so you might want to sit away from that area if you prefer to chat over your meal without having to shout to male yourself heard.
On each occasion our server introduced themselves, told us about the daily drink and food specials, made other suggestions about items they thought we might enjoy and left us for a few more minutes before they came back for our order.
On our first visit we both opted for the barbeque ribs that were the daily special along with a side order of fried shrimp to share. We chose fries as our accompaniment. The food was delicious the meat literally fell off the rib bones, the shrimp were large and juicy and the fries were hot and crispy not lukewarm, soggy or over seasoned like they tend to be in a lot of the local restaurants. We asked if they had any vinegar and they produced real malt vinegar without looking at us as though we had gone mad. All the food was delicious and the server was attentive and efficient without us feeling that we were being rushed. He certainly deserved his tip.
On each of our subsequent visits we ordered different main courses including the prime rib, seafood, lobster & clam bake and burgers all were good and excellent value for money. We also sampled the pitchers of beer as well as the soft drinks (huge tumblers with the usual free refills) and found them, to be good value too. You won’t be stuck to find something you like to drink when they have 99 varieties of beer on offer not forgetting the spirits and cocktails as well.
Our verdict a welcome addition to the area and well worth a visit.
