Matt the Miller’s Tavern
Serving spiffed-up tavern food for the masses, this Ohio-import chain focuses on hulking sandwiches, embellished flatbreads, and all manner of appetizers requiring multiple dipping sauces. (The deep-fried pretzel bites standing out as a delicious example of that last trend.) Steaks are serviceable but overpriced, and not nearly as good as the fork-tender pan-seared walleye, the burgers, or a single-serving crock of baked rigatoni loaded with shrimp and Italian sausage in creamy, spicy Cajun sauce. Skip the gimmicky desserts and order another beer.
