Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse - Oak Brook
Great ServiceWe went for lunch and had a lot of choices at very attractive prices. Our server was fabulous!
We did not indulge in dessert due to the fact that we were happily satiated and the fact that a piece of Turtle Pie was $14.75!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSons Birthday CelebrationLoved the food, waiter was great and attentive. T-Bone steak was awesome!!! Garbage salad was delicious! Service was great! Can't wait to return!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA return visitWe will definitely return. Very pleased with our lunch experience; can't wait to have dinner.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNiceEverything was nice and please --every thing was nice6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways welcomed and rememberedEven though we only get to Gibson's on an irregular basis, the last time being about 6 months ago....the staff always remembers us and makes us feel like long time friends. It is truly an amazing restaurant - and I would also add a value. Our server Karen is top notch, that is why we always ask to be placed in her section every time we patronize Gibson's. Management is very attentive, and it's clear they know how to run a business. Can't wait for the next visit!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time and excellent . . .My wife and I dined at Gibson's on Saturday, June 8, 2013. They held our table (nice) while we watched the Belmont Stakes on TV in their very pleasantly appointed bar / lounge. Martinis are excellent, if pricey, but after all this is Chicagoland and to be expected in a fine dining establishment. When it came time for dinner in the restaurant, we were most pleased with the ambience, presentations of menu and the wait staff is both sufficient in number and proficient. We each had a petite filet mignon and it was perfectly cooked to our satisfaction and it was served hot. The mashed potatoes with wine gravy were delicious. When leaving we commented that this definitely is a repeat next time were in the Chicago area. Highly recommend!!!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall goodExperience was nice and the wait staff was extremely attentive. Food overall was good, would have said great except for the side dishes.
Quality of the sides however was a bit disappointing for the cost.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experienceSimply said, dinner was great. Server was knowledgeable, covering all details in helping me ans and my party place their orders and we had some picky eaters! Will most certainly return!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat choice!Enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was fantastic! Had a business dinner there with a client and we were all very satisfiedwith everything. Spent some time on the patio after dinner for a cocktail and cigar that was very enjoyable and relaxing. Great job!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat oasis in the middleGreat oasis in the middle of a busy world. Sat outstanding by the waterfall and felt I was far away from the hustle and bustle.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing steak and food, likeAmazing steak and food, like everytime. Best Steak house in Chicago area.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place!The food was great but everything is BIG. They let our party of 4 split a steak which was just the right amount since we were traveling and did not need leftovers. We had the "The meaning of Life cake" and it was super and we got only one serving but it could serve 12 people-not kidding. We did take this to our hotel and shared with some of our friends we were meeting. Just too good to leave on table.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner for twoThe food here was great. On the expensive side, but I really enjoyed it. Worth the price. Only downside was the table I was seated at was sort of small.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food the quality ofGreat food the quality of steaks and staff is outstanding.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways First ClassEverything is done first class every time. We love going!!!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Steak DinnerThe food selections were excellent and the strawberry short cake dessert was delicious.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!Gibson's always comes through for food, service and authentic waiters! Thank you for making my birthday special.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMImpeccable!Gibson's in Chicago is known for excellent service and the Oakbrook location did not dissapoint!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable and DeliciousWe were celebrating my husband's birthday and it couldn't have been better. HIs ribeye and my prime rib were done to perfection and so tasty. We had the baked sweet potato - divine -, a regular baked potato, scrumptious creamed spinach, and delicious mushrooms. Everything was seasoned perfectly - and as an added treat the waiter heard me say it was my husband's birthday so he brought a HUGE chocolate sundae which topped off the perfect meal!! This was a real treat for us, our second time here, and we were not disappointed! Our waiter was knowledgeable, courteous, and friendly without being pushy. Truly enjoyable experience.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGibsons delivers on all fronts.Brought the family for a special occasion.
Excellent on all counts. Highly recommend for all occasions.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDining experienceWe enjoyed the dinner. Next time I will request a less high profile area for dining. At times I felt a little intimidated with the small space in the aisle of which the food carriers was transporting hot food and racks of glasses etc. Food and service was great.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe prime rib, filet and grilledThe prime rib, filet and grilled shrimp were excellent, as usual. We requested a certain seating area and got exactly what we wanted. Good job on that. The waitress we had that evening was not at her best. She was rather slow and didn.t check up on us after the dinner came. When she did come it was too late, and decided to go into the bar. The piano player they had there was very good. The service in the bar was also very goo. Would definitely return.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial DinnerI took my husband to Gibson's for his birthday dinner, and he's a fan of a great steak. The meal was wonderful, and the service was fantastic - quick, friendly and professional. He enjoyed a smaller filet mignon with mashed potatoes, and I had fish (tilapia with crab). We both loved our entrees. We split a HUGE piece of carrot cake for dessert - took a lot of it home.
My only issue with the restaurant was that it was quite loud. It was hard to hear. We also seemed to be seated on a very busy "corner," with lots of people trying to squeeze past our table. The worst was the busboy who dragged a garbage can right past our table. Just trying to do his job, but still...
Otherwise we had a great time and will definitely go back.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGibson's never fails to deliverThe food, the atmosphere, the service....outstanding. We are never disappointed at Gibsons Oak Brook. Love the staff, they go out of their way to deliver excellence every time. We go there as often as possible. From the hostess guest greeters, to the wait staff (Jackie one of our favorites) to the management team John, and Terry....love this crew.
The outdoor seating is divine, great ambiance, energy level is perfect, not stuffy like other places! A must visit if you love great food, and wine, and want to enjoy evening from start to finish! This is your place!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAlway our go to placeWe have been coming to Gibsons for years and have never been disappointed. All the servers are extremely efficient and friendly. Jackie is the best. Portions are huge so come hungry. Some of our favorites are: the Chicago cut, steak salad, crab cakes, avocado crab appetizer. Truly, we have never had a bad choice so there are lots of options. I should mention even though Gibsons is a steak house all their fish options are phenomenal. The outdoor seating area is very pleasant. If you have any room for dessert which we never think we do but amazingly we find room, order one for 4+ people!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second visitThis was our second visit here and we were not disappointed. We've requested and did eventually got our previous server to wait onus. She is no doubt one of the best as far as knowledge,suggestions,and friendliness. The prime rib and filet mignon we ordered was cook to perfection and huge. The side dishes along with the crab/avocado appetizer was excellent. We camet celebrate my birthday and no doubt will return againin the near future.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated my son's graduation.We celebrated my son's graduation. They were extremely nice and we had numerous servers waiting on us. They gave my son a sundae to celebrate, which was excellent. He was impressed and said it's his new favorite restaurant.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGibsons - good steak, great serviceMy wife and I went to Gibson's to celebrate our anniversary. The food was of excellent quality, and quite good. We had a debate whether it was better than Morton's, and decided Morton's is just a tad better. We went early, ~6PM, and it was reasonably quiet, but grew louder as it got later and the tables filled up. Our table was very close to the neighboring tables, which was our biggest issue. My chair kept getting bumped as wait staff and other patrons walked by. Overall, the service was top notch, the food was very good, and we had to be rolled out. Oh, almost forgot, this place has no parking lot, so it's all valet. Be sure to bring a fiver for the valet.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstandingfood was outstanding

I enjoyed the fried calamari and the sauce. The best Tom Collins I've ever tasted.The WR Chicago Cut was extremely tender. The Mac and 4 Cheese with andouille Sausage was delicious. My Son says the Barbecue ribs were off the chain as the young folk say...lol! My Wife, who never finishes her plate when we dine out, was simply in Heaven. The tilapia was simply Devine. She could not stop talking about it on the ride home. Definitely worth the price of admission.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMKaren was an excellent serverShe was attentive and appropriately friendly.

I forgot to bring a jacket or sweater again. Everything else was great.
Oyster's Rockefeller, NE Chowder soup, ribs and filet, delish.
Very good service.
Thank you.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak house everWhen we first arrived we were seated at a very tight table on top of another group with no room to even move our chairs. The staff was so accomodating and friendly and sat us at a table to our liking immediately and constantly returned to make sure we were happy. The only thing wrong with the New England Clam Chowder soup is they don't offer free refills - I could not get enough. All sides, made to share, were delicious. We had the twice baked potatoe, sauteed spinach and mushrooms. Everyone's steaks were cooked to perfection and my lamb chops, cooked med rare, were outstanding. Pricey, but for a special occasion you can't go wrong at Gibsons. I've been to other big name steakhouses and decided this will be my first choice.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMImpress your clientsTook a couple of doctors here after a long day of meetings at a conference and they absolutely loved it. Great food and excellent service.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOutdoor sensationFinally a lovely day and we want to dine outside for lunch. So we remembered Gibson's. I love the Crab Avacado salad. The downside was the water fall had not been turned on for the season yet which was a little disappointing but did not ruin the experience.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers dayExcellent Food! Expensive but there are some items on the menu with some standard pricing - burger, salads, etc.
Server's presentation and recommendations almost make you feel obligated to purchase something extravagant.
I went for mother's day and we ordered some pricey items including the tomahawk cut steak.(Overrated, I do not recommend unless you like medium-well to well-done finish)
Crab and avocado appetizer is delicious. Best item we ordered by far.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day excellenceThis is the second year we've dined at Gibson's for Mother's Day and it was wonderful. Food is excellent, as always, but our server, Brian, made everything perfect. Well done!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service was excellent.The food and service was excellent.

The food was great & our waiter was excellent. Really felt like we were in downtown Chicago vs. Oak Brook.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently GreatWhy go anywhere else? Everyplace compares themselves to Gibson's, so why not go here? Food & service are consistently great. It never disappoints!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceThe service was absolutely outstanding! We went for a special birthday lunch and sat on the patio on a perfect spring day. The lunch menu was affordable, the portions were the right size and it was delicious. As a birthday surprise they treated the birthday person to a full size dessert (their choice). The dessert picked for us was the Macadamia Turtle Pie which was big enough for all 6 of us to share and it was wonderful! We felt the only drawback to our meal was not being able to substitute a small salad for the fries, and even when it was requested not to have the fries at all they came anyway. It was just too tempting when trying to watch calories.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOutdoor patio had great ambianceOutdoor patio had great ambiance and was perfect for my business dinner of 8. We ordered the appetizer tower and the server knew to add just a few extra items to fit our group. Speaking of service it was impeccable. They had great recommendations on food selection and quantity, they were courtious, and kept the table clean the whole time. Also, dont forget to order dessert... one item is more than enough for the whole table. They are huge, impressive, and delicious!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWas a great business dinner place!Server was awesome. She knew her stuff, was just the right amount of fun and business. She even played us a song at the piano bar when the regular pianist was done. Food was great too!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
