Steak
Unbelievable food, efficient & fun service, & the highest quality products available, served in an exciting setting, seems like a simple equation for a great Saturday night out. The difference at Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse is that this is a nightly occurrence with the same excitement & weekend energy found every day of the week. As thousands before have discovered, it only takes one trip to get you hooked.

Still excellent old line place on Rush Street in the former Mister Kelly's. Great steaks and accompaniments. Usually a wait even with reservations, but worth it. Pricey.

Leider war der Service eine absolute Zumutung, keinerlei Kommunikation, der Tisch wurde während des Essens abgeräumt, reine Abfertigung, Atmosphäre leider ganz schlecht, der Abend war so richtig misslungen und enttäuschend, schade.

The experience and food was great. However, I am in my 20s and I feel as though the server treated me poorly because of my age and expectation of a poor tip in a nice restaurant.

I'm on the fence with a recommendation. I ordered a well done steak got some blood and got really sick. Bad experience for me.

They did not have our reservation ready at 930pm. When we showed up a few minutes early, we were told that our table would be ready at 930pm. At 930pm, they said it wasn’t ready and told us it would only be another ten minutes. At 945pm, we were told that it would only be another 10 minutes. We finally were seated at 10pm - I understand this stuff happens, but to overpromise and under deliver three times in the course of thirty minutes is absolutely ridiculous.

Steak and lobster were impeccable. John, our server, was knowledgeable on all products. Only let down was our table for 2 was literally right next to another table for 2. Thankfully, our neighbors were chatty and enjoyable. Had they not been, it could have been too close for comfort

We’ve been to Gibson’s for the past 15 years and this experience was not the best. Celebrating a birthday and ordered a drink and waiter wasn’t the friendliest. Food was good as always. But, felt very rushed and drinks came out within 30 seconds. Drinks were not cold for a dirty martini. Overall experience- poor. Not a good experience

Thursday night, 9 pm reservations - place was packed and bustling. Everything felt authentic, food was exceptional and service even more impressive. My Italian husband was thrilled with the ambiance!

Food was delicious, service was perfect (meaning we were not rushed). We caught it on a night where it was not too loud. Sitting in a booth helps.

Had lunch on a Tuesday while in town on business and sat indoors near a window. Pretty setting with a great looking bar area (with piano) and a club room on the upper level.

I was torn between the Chicago Cut Bone-in Ribeye and something smaller, decided on a cup of the Bookbinder's soup (added some sherry for a bite) and the ribeye sandwich with arugula, roasted tomatoes and horseradish sauce. The sandwich was served on a nice, garlicky soft Italian bread and was excellent. The cut wasn't the largest piece of meat but it was perfect for an earlier lunch. The servers were attentive and not pushy. A manager also checked in on the meal. Very good experience while in town for the first time.

Loved my experience there! Traveling from out of town and this would definitely be my go to in the future. We were able to sit outside and it was an amazing experience. Food was delicious and our server took great care of us. We wanted lots of sides and she let us do half orders so we could share and try more. A must in Chicago!

I' ve been dining at Gibsonss for 25 years now but this particular evening I ordered prime rib of beef and I was not so happy with it. Seems like the beef was slightly tough. My son was with me and he ordered porterhouse steak which was its usual excellent but my beef was a disappointment. Didn't seem like Gibsons but my fear is that all of the restaurants are fighting high prices and either they reduce the quality of the food or have to raise prices and as prices in Chicago are very high as it is, my gut feeling is that if a restaurant could skimp here and there, that would be their first priority. Or else I just got a lousy piece of beef and as I have been so well satisfied at Gibsons before, perhaps I should just forget about it.

I have been to this Chicago classic several times and it never disappoints. If you want on old time Steak house this is the place. Wait staff is outstanding and very attentive. Steaks were prepared perfectly as you would expect any reputable steak house.
I can't say I am a big fan of having a bathroom attendant that is expecting a tip but, it is part of the experience.

The "Chicago-named" steak on the menu was the favorite among our table of 6. Cooked and seasoned to perfection! The mashed potatoes were what you would expect, nothing unique about them, but very good and the brussel sprouts were delicious.

For dessert, 6 of us shared a single serving of carrot cake which had to be 10" tall, 3 layers high! We all enjoyed a generous piece of cake and still had leftovers to feed 4-6 more adults.

Our server was wonderful and we'd go back to Gibson's in a heartbeat. Wonderful meal!

We were disappointed in our experience. The house salad was lacking in flavor and drowning in dressing. My sea bass was excellent! However, my husband and I felt like the restaurant thought they were doing us a favor by letting us eat there.

Gibsons is our go to place for special occasions. In this case my wife's birthday. We always enjoy it and were not disappointed.
