Miller’s Ale House to Close in September After a Decade in Rockville

Updated to reflect an updated closing date of September 25th

A manager at the restaurant was able to confirm that Miller’s Ale House will be closing permanently in August (the date has since been updated to September 25th) after approximately 10 years at 1471 Rockville Pike in Rockville. The location was previously home to Hooters before it moved across the Pike (and later closed) and Shakey’s before that. Miller’s Ale House is a Florida-based American restaurant and sports bar chain that was founded in 1988. The restaurant serves steaks, chicken, burgers, salads, seafood, and more. Though most of their locations are in Florida (over 50), there are over 30 other locations open across the east coast. Miller’s Ale House has nearby locations in Hyattsville and Sterling, VA locations.

Back in March 2022, the building was made available for lease, but at the time we were told that Miller’s Ale House had no plans to close. According to the listing, the 8,100 SF restaurant is available at the price of $52 per SF.
