Getting tapped in to Miller’s Ale House

Apr 16, 2013 3:00 AM

It’s baseball season now along with the NBA and NHL playoffs all set to begin, so we have a ton of sports to watch all at one time. We always can go to our favorite sports book to watch the games but sometimes we just want to go to a sports bar, have a few cold ones, grab some food and kick back with friends.

One thing this town is not short on is sports bars, and one I like to go to is Miller’s Ale House (6683 Las Vegas Blvd South) at Town Square.

No matter where you are seated at Miller’s Ale House you will be able to catch your favorite game. They have 70 TV’s located throughout the bar and restaurant areas. When looking for your favorite beer on tap, there is a real good chance it’s there, in addition to a full bar with wine and liquor selections.

There are three separate areas inside Miller’s. The main section as you walk in has a center bar with TV’s all around. There are dining booths located on the one side of the main bar with large flat screen TV’s. On the other side of the main bar there are several high top tables along with more booths and large flat screens.

They have a back bar with the same set up of televisions all around and several tables for dining. There also is a section in the back that is more casual with couches, chairs and several flat screens throughout.

The final area, if you want a little more laid back atmosphere, is the outdoor patio section.

After having our drinks and several TV’s to watch games, it was time to grab some food. Miller’s has an extensive menu for a sports bar. Yes, you can get your chicken wings, burgers and favorite finger foods as you would expect at a sports bar, but they also have steaks, ribs, pasta dishes and, yes, even lobster.

Their signature menu item is what they call Zingers. It’s their version of boneless chicken wings that are fresh made chicken strips in a variety of flavors. They have several sauces they toss the zingers in, with my personal favorite flavor being the Medium Garlic. Another way to enjoy the zingers is order them as tacos.

They have daily lunch and dinner specials, including Rib Eye Steak on Tuesday nights and Lobster on Wednesday nights. They have different lunch specials Monday through Friday priced at $4.99 and $5.99.

Be sure to save room for dessert. They have several tasty items but their signature dessert, and my personal favorite, is Captain Jack’s Buried Treasure, a homemade ice cream cake with an Oreo cookie crust, caramel, chocolate fudge and Heath Bar crunch.

Trust me; you’ll love it.

Being located at Town Square you can also make the Mrs. happy as she can spend an afternoon shopping while you are enjoying a few cold ones and watching the games.

Miller’s Ale House is one of my favorite places to watch games and grab a bite. I give them 3.50 Forks!
