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.

I've been to many steak houses, but Gibson's is by far the best I've been to. It's old school in all the best ways. The service is one of the high points. I also recommend the wine list.

After many visiting several other neighborhood haunts on many occasions, I finally made my first visit to Gibson's. As I suspected, it did not disappoint. The staff was assertively friendly and wonderfully accommodating. The steaks were accurately cooked to order and very flavorful. We shared several sides and all were delicious. I truly look forward to my next visit to Gibson's!

Everything about Gibson's was what I would call "old Chicago Style" classy. Food was ample and served in style.

Experience was amazing, especially with the pleasure of having Joe to guide us through it all! The steak was perfectly cooked and the double baked potato is a must- have! Will definitely be returning.

Fantastic service, funny and attentive. Great ambiance and the place buzzes with energy. I always make it a point to come here when I'm in Chicago for work, and this visit was one of the best.

First time in Chicago and here for work. Someone recommended Gibson's and it was fantastic. My server Elvis steered me the right way from wine, to entree and sides. Definitely going to be a regular visit when in town.

It's an institution. You take out of towners .they ove it clients feel like they have one up on you because they get a good steak. Brussel sprouts are on point. I enjoyed the porterhouse and I must say every steak was a touch over. We all noticed but chose not to send them back. Overall very nice and we all get what we want out of this great establishment.

The restaurant was very disappointing. They boast about their steaks being the best. My steak was average at the least was not very tender. I have had better steaks at a local restaurant. I enjoy Morton’s better.

We sat in the street view window area which was a great way to enjoy fantastic meal and the city street. Given how busy the restaurant is, the window areas are the best seats. We were happy. A couple got engaged in the table next to us. Chicago cut is the way to go. We don’t eat steak often so the experience was worth it! Twice baked potato was awesome!

we want for a late NYE dinner and had a fantastic experience. Started with drinks at the bar 30 min before dinner, great music for NYE, and then had a fantastic steak for two. Service was excellent. would recommend to locals in Chicago and anyone visiting as well.

As always Gibson's quality of food did not disappoint. Our reservation was at 9pm, and shocking at 9:03pm we were seated, I was really expecting to wait since it was NYE. We ordered a few different items and a filet to share with some delicious sides. Our server was knowledgable of the menu and was very nice, and real which in the Gold Coast is a nice trait. We had a delightful evening. Will go back for sure

The Chicago cut is one of the best steak I have ever had. It has a beautiful char but still cooked to juicy medium/medium rare perfection. The service is great. All in all, a perfect outing for NYE.

Where do I start? From the hostess to the waitress to the manager...the entire night was a big zero which is very unfortunate since it was New Year’s Eve! Although I had made advance reservations requesting a porch window table, in typical Gibson’s fashion they still tried to seat us at the loser’s table in between dining room and porch, sandwiched between 2 doors!
Everything kept going downhill after that, from the attitude of the waitress to the way Mario, the manager, tried to pacify us with free dessert of HIS choice, key lime pie which neither of us like!
This place has lost its charm for me. I used to actually enjoy the ambience and most of all the steaks. Now it seems to be all about seating you anywhere they please, running up your bill and getting you out the door as fast as they can so they can seat the next sucker. Zero care is taken in the service or the food. All they care about is $$$$. The only decent workers are the hard-working bus boys!
I wish I could get our $200 back for the night.
I used to love going there but I won’t be going back! Terrible experience overall!!!

I made a reservation at Gibson's for my company's year-end / Christmas dinner. It was everything we hoped it would be, and more. Zach was our server and did an outstanding job not only with our food and orders, but bringing his humor and personality to the table and making our celebration that much more fun and memorable.

Incredible steaks, sides, and drinks. Great ambience. There's a reason this place is the standard bearer for Chicago steakhouses!

Elvis was our waiter and was AMAZING!! Everything was just as we asked and he never led us down the wrong road. We were celebrating our 20th anniversary early and hands down regardless of the celebration a fantastic meal. Steaks great—- crab/avocado appetizer superb—- Brussel sprouts excellent!!
