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.

Probably should have known not to order fish at a steakhouse. It was a little over cooked. Steak was very good, ice cold house salad and a fantastic twice baked potato. They were nice enough to comp the fish meal.

Bookbinder soup was more tomatoey than I recall, seemed more acidic as a result! & not as much fish pieces in it!

Otherwise a lovely experience!

The best restaurant experience all around that I've had in a long time, and maybe ever. I don't have one single complaint. Amazing.

Visiting from out of town and told we had to come here. We’ve been to many steakhouses throughout the country and this has now become one of our favorites!!!! Service, history, ambiance - all impeccable. The food is unbelievably delicious!

Fantastic steakhouse, considered by many to be the superior steakhouse experience in Chicago. Didn’t disappoint. They start off with a quick educational guide in terms of their steaks, and then you’re off and running. Place was packed and we still got our cocktails within a minute of ordering them. Entrees came 20 minutes after ordering them. The service at Gibson’s is top tier. And the steak, oh my god, the steak. Best steak I’ve ever had. Highly recommend this place for your next special occasion. And reservations are a must!

Gibson’s was recommended by our local Uber driver one night after picking his brain about local favorites and beat of the city. He assured us Gibson’s was going to be an absolute treat and he was correct. Although we did it last minute and had to settle for an early dinner reservation at 4:30 it was the perfect time! It was still relatively quiet and intimate but was picking up as our dinner continued. We had an awesome server (I wish I could remember his name... older man with dark rim glasses and white hair!). Server was detailed when explaining the menu and honest about favorites, which I always appreciate. Would definitely be back

We were quite disappointed with the table we were seated at. We were on the end and my daughter kept getting run into by servers. It was SO loud we could barely carry a conversation. The server was good, but hard to hear and understand. The food was delicious but so expensive. Overall, it was a disappointing experience.

My hubby a Chicagoan told me I had to go there on my business trip - it was excellent advice. This is an institution that makes you feel l like you are experiencing old Chicago in a new way, with food that is amazing as it was 30 years ago. Our waiter Joe became like family quickly by making us welcome and seeing to our every need. The food was divine.

We have spent a very good time in Gibsons. Gibsons has surved some good wine and steaks. Especially aged steak was so good taste for us. We would like to visit Gibsons again, thank you.

They sat us right away for our reservation. At first server seemed friendly. We order, them noticed other tables being offered-shown steaks etc that we we not. When asked if they do anything for birthdays she said” yes we do” “sing and a dessert” as she presented the dessert options my friend said no the singing. Food was prompt. Server did not make it back to check on meal until we were done. Steak was the best part of the meal. Broccoli was cold and flavorless. Brussel sprouts were dry and bland. My friend decided on the creme brûlée as her birthday dessert. Which too was burnt however center was good. We received the bill and had been charged for the dessert. We asked to please split the bill and about the charge for dessert. Server was very rude. And said oh no you’re charged. Felt very misled. And she acting like she never heard of splitting a bill (bottle of wine was on our bill and offer to pay for my friends birthday dessert) she was nasty and said “I’ll talk to the manager “ Why is it necessary to talk to a manager and be nasty to split a bill. She never even asked how we would like our bill. Which most do considering we were to females out. Once was enough at Gibson’s for us. Much better food and service available. On a side note, I almost slipped and fell on their dining floor. So please be careful in heels. Vet slick.

I was very disappointed as it was my birthday and I go every year. They did not have the mud pie which I order every birthday. I did not find this out for 25 minutes after the order was placed and that was only when I pulled the waitress away from some guy flirting with her since I was running late to go on a boat.

Good steak house - not the best I’ve ever been to... great portions (share salads and sides) bread basket was not great (Im a bread lover) steaks were cooked to perfection but a little salty and too much sour cream in the twice baked potatoes. The people watching was by far the best part of this restaurant.

The food is always outstanding but the upstairs is nothing to be desired. I come to Gibsons everything I travel to Chicago. I come for the Gibsons experience, not the 2nd floor which I didnt even know existed! I will certainly know going forward and can't wait to get back so I can experience it like I knew it..

Just another over priced mediocre steakhouse. My meatloaf was cold and not even cooked all the way. What a disappointment for such an expensive restaurant.

Had dinner with my mom and sister as we were in town for the weekend. Was looking forward to a nice dinner, but we didn’t get sat until 20 minutes after our reservation and then the server lost one of our steaks. Felt like their service was under par.

Steaks are always delicious. My porterhouse was a little overcooked, but it still melted in my mouth, so regardless, very happy.

We enjoyed a really wonderful dining experience. Our waiter gave us just the right amount of attention. The food was excellent. Be warned the desserts are HUGE! One would be enough for a table of 4. When I am in Chicago I will definitely return.
