Miller’s Field 1

The NFL season and the College Football season is right around the corner and so is the Olympics. Do you need a nice new place to watch your favorite game? Well, the Orlando area has a new Sports Bar in town. I am talking about Miller’s Field.
Miller’s field is owned or co-owned by Craig Miller. You might recognize that name. Craig Miller is the former CEO of the popular successful Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse chain. After leaving his position at Ruth’s Chris , Craig Miller was also a political candidate for the 6th Congressional district. Craig has been working with his son Jeffery on the Miller’s Field restaurant location at the Dellagio Town Center off of Sand Lake Road or commonly known to locals Restaurant Row. Miller’s Field is where the old City Fire restaurant was. The other location or first location of Miller’s Field is in San Diego, CA.
I recently made a trip over to Miller’s Field. The place is about 8500 square feet and has over 50 HD TVs spread out around the restaurant. It is a classic sports bar and restaurant and it’s geared toward the sports enthusiasts. They have a great selection of beers and have a full bar.
My guest and I started with the Fire Cracker Shrimp $9. Our server articulated this starter was like the Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer from Bonefish Grill. The shrimp was lightly breaded, flash fried, coated with a sweet tangy lightly spicy sauce, and served over lettuce. Bang Bang is still #1.
We also tried the Smoked Wings (10) $8.5. The menu states they are lightly smoked and finished crispy. The wings are served with Ranch or Blue Cheese dressing. We elected to have them prepared Buffalo style with Blue Cheese dressing on the side.
The server also recommended their Burgers. Miller’s Field Burgers $9 are prepared medium well unless otherwise specified. The burgers come with their sweet and salty chips. I elected to try their natural cut fries $3.5. The burgers are served with a homemade soft bun, lettuce, tomato, Thousand Island dressing, choice of cheese with a fresh or grilled onion. You can add a fried egg for 1.5.
Miller’s Field House is a great place to watch a game and grab a beer and hang out with your friends.
Extra Mentions- Plenty of parking available (outside or garage parking no charge-valet close by as well) service was good; server was very attentive and friendly. Indoor outdoor Bar is available. TVs were all in great strategic locations. Opens at 4pm during the week, closes at 2am, serves lunch on the weekends and closes at the final buzzer.
Miller’s Field is located at:
7958 Via Dellagio Way
Orlando, Fl 32819

Stefano’s Grill Reply

The Unofficial Restaurant Review would like to report a new restaurant coming. “Stefano’s Grill” will take over the location that was once occupied by Boston Market in the Dr Phillips Marketplace. Dr Phillips Marketplace already houses Morton’s, Christinis, Press 101, Carieras, Five Guys and more. It’s a pretty competitive with Italian restaurants but I wish Stefano’s Grill well and I can’t wait to try it once it opens.

URR would also like to report Stefano’s Italian Grille in the Summerport Village in Windermere has closed. I wrote about this place awhile back. I assume they are moving to the Dr Phillips Marketplace? But I am not for certain. If you know this to be a fact or something different please post a comment.


Eastern Pearl Reply

In my humble opinion we don’t have an abundance of very good Chinese restaurants in the Central Florida/Orlando area. When I have PF Changs as one of my top 5 Chinese places on my list that says something.  Honestly I do like PF Changs and really respect their Asian food and usually the service is consistent. But where are the very good local Chinese places?  One which I like is Eastern Pearl located in Altamonte Springs.

Eastern Pearl is a place to find good Chinese food. This restaurant is located across the street from the Altamonte Mall. EP has been around for many years. This tells me they are doing something right.

The interior is elegant in design and most of the furniture was imported from China. The Lazy Susan tables make the food enjoyable and easy to share.  The culture of the restaurant makes you really feel like you are in China especially with the Waterfall back drops and waterfall sounds. Nice Chinese ambience and setting to eat your Chinese meal.  The menu has your typical Chinese favorites.

I started with Hot & Sour Soup $3.75. The soup was good and it had the right amount of heat and spice on this day.  The Hot & Sour soup was a good starter. I also tried the shrimp roll (2) $3.25. Just your basic egg rolls. Nothing fancy but decent.

On this visit I tried the Pork Lo Mein (lunch special) with white rice on the side. The Pork Lo Mein consisted of julienne pork strips, fresh sliced vegetables, all stir fried in a good seasoned soy based sauce. Just a good dish of lo mein!   They also give you plenty, enough to share.  

The next visit I tried the Chicken with Black Bean Sauce. This dish did not disappoint. The spiced julienne chicken was very tender, with many fresh vegetables like onions, peppers, mushrooms, and salted black beans which make the dish.  This dish was well-balanced and had the right Chinese seasonings fully involved.  Good dish!

IN ADDITION: On all occasions I found the wait staff to be polite and super efficient.  Plenty of parking is available. Easy place to get in and out of for lunch or it’s a place you can take your time and not feel rushed.

If you have any other good suggestions on great Chinese food in our area please drop me a line. BTW looking forward to trying Hawkers Asian Street Fare soon!
