Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse - Chicago
Book your next event with us
Amazing experience for our son's 21st birthday! Wait staff at table and in bar were top notch!
Celebrated my daughter’s 8th birthday on saturday night. We enjoyed our meals, and she had a great time.
I like Gibson's because the food is delicious and the location affords really nice people watching. My friend asked me to take her to lunch there for her birthday, just like last year. I would recommend it highly.
We came here to celebrate a special occasion and we had such a great experience. The food is out of this world. The server was extremely efficient and knowledgeable. I highly recommend the French dip. It is the best sandwich I’ve ever had.
Service, as usual, was excellent. I ordered the prime rib sandwich. This is the first item that I ordered that I would never order again. The piece of prime rib was on a sandwich, covered with arugula, tomatoes and horseradish. I was very surprised when I bit into the sandwich and came up with a lot of fat and gristle. This happened more than once while eating the sandwich. So much so that I ended up taking everything off of the sandwich so I could cut into the meat, avoiding the fat and gristle. My friend and my husband truly enjoyed their lunches (as I do most of the time).
I had the WR Chicago cut and it was amazing! Tender enough to cut with a fork. Great flavor, no sauce needed. Lots of food, for the price.
Great burger! Love the Cesar salad with grilled chicken. Great lunch during the break of a hectic day.
Fabulous as usual! Excellent service too! My sister and I took our out-of-town relative to Gibson's. We had a blast and were very impressed with the service and the food. What a fun time! Cheers!
Awesome food, awesome service. We go here every time we come to Chicago.
I have lived in Chicago for 6 years now and have long considered one of its signature attributes to be the steakhouse. No matter which steakhouse you go to they all seemed to leave its customers satisfied. However, I think there are a few steakhouses that have put their reputation near or at the top of the list and they include Bavettes, Swift & Sons, and I would consider Gibsons on that list as well. With that in mind I have always wanted to go to Gibsons and finally had the opportunity to do so. We arrived about 10 minutes earlier for our reservation and as soon as 8:30pm arrived they got us seated. The evening started out well as they sat us at a beautiful table overlooking the Viagra Triangle Park. The night only went down hill from there. The waiter was plenty nice and clearly looking to provide exceptional service, but he was an older gentleman who had a hard time hearing and had an accent that was not the easiest to understand. The real disappointment of Gibson's was the steak itself. We both ordered the filet mignon (14oz) medium rare. When we got it and got in the middle it was easily more on the rare side than the medium rare side but I am fine overlooking that (its a risk you take whenever you order medium rare). The troubling part was that it was not only rare in the middle but also very very cold and not bloody at all. It seemed very obvious that they had taken some very cold meat out of the refrigerator or freezer plopped it on the stove and then sent it out. The meat did not seem well prepared beforehand at all. We had only eaten one bite at this point so it was still the entire steak. We told our waiter about this and he told us he would fix this immediately. He picked up our steaks and sent it back to the kitchen. He then came back about 10 minutes later and returned the steak to us. The outside was charred and to call it medium would have been generous. Its very possible we just had a bad experience, but I will not be returning again.
Amazing food very large portions and very expensive. Desserts out of this world
Carl is the best!
My steak was great. Salad was drowned in dressing. Bread was very cold and hard. Server was not nice at all. Very hard to hear and understand him. Sat where tables was so close together. The guy's shoulder behind me was almost touch me. Very hard to relax. For the price we should have had a great overall experience.
Always delicious with impeccable service and quality of food. You are at a "can't-miss" spot for steak and seafood. Don't forget to get an appetizer or two as they are scrumptious!
Good steaks not the best I ever had
Service is good
Deserts are large and tasty 😋
Eggs benedict best in the city! service is always superb. Daniella is the best its a fun festive environment.
Voula, Carol are awesome
Comida fría, sin música y muy caro
Great food and exceptional service
All around fabulous! I wish I knew our servers name! He was part of what made our dining experience so wonderful! Will definitely be back next time we’re in town!
The portions were giant and was impressed at how good the food was! I ordered the fillet, mashed potatoes, and brussels sprouts my husband order the t-bone- all were amazing!! We will be going back!!
FINALLY, my husband took me to Gibson’s! The food was delicious!! The steaks were cooked perfectly and the creamed spinach was really good. We had a reservation, but it took about 20 minutes to get our table which meant being jostled around the crammed bar while trying not to wear my martini. Fortunately, some nice people let us set our drinks on their table while we waited. We met a really fun couple sitting next to us in the dining room with really added to the enjoyment. I was disappointed in the dessert menu, the only items that sounded good, were sold out. I would most certainly go back!!
Excellent service. Still not a fan of the bathroom attendants.
Loved it. They give you so much food. Your sure to have leftovers. Everything was delicious And the dessert was Devine. Great place for a date or outing with the girls.
Great experience, table was ready, food was awesome! Wife loved the lobster bisque,
Wedge salad was awesome, so was the steak. Service was attentive and informative, just a good trip, we'll come back
Great steak, great service!
Excelente lugar , de entrada pedimos como aperitivo crab-avocado, que resultó bastante bueno , y de plato fuerte en mi caso pedí un corte new-york, que tenia el cocimiento perfecto y un sabor exquisito; pero lo que definitivamente superó mis expectativas fue el servicio , nuestro mesero David fue muy atento , rápido y se dio el tiempo de mostrarnos los cortes y recomendarnos el cocimiento más adecuado, dependiendo de nuestra elección. Los precios son acorde a la calidad de los alimentos , al servicio y al lugar. Si estás en Chicago, te recomiendo que te des tiempo de reservar con anticipación y visitar Gibson’s .
Fun After Theater Hamburger Late Night Quick Meal. Bar was crowded but service was excellent and food and drinks were great.
Went here with my parents for my 25th birthday. And both the staff and food did not disappoint. Our lovely server took the time to bring out the raw steaks and described each and every type of cut. My mom and I wanted to share the W.R.'s Chicago Cut, which was 22 oz, but we differed vastly on how we like our steaks cooked; she likes it medium well and myself, medium rare. The sweet server was so accommodating to everything! We ordered a side of brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes while my dad ordered the full ribs and fries. Everything was delicious- including the wine! To top it off they brought out some ice cream with a candle to share. What a lovely evening!
Outstanding all around, per usual. Many thanks!
Been going for more than 20 years...best service in town. Food is a great value.
Food was excellent. Starting with a basket of fresh bread, wonderful house salad, and of course a steak of amazing flavor that melted in your mouth. I even had cold leftovers the next morning and to my surprise the steak was just as delicious!
I really loved the bar. I thought that was the highlight of my meal.
We were in town for a conference and chose Gibson's as our special dinner out. We arrived early and had a drink in the bar which was packed (a good thing). When we were seated we got one of the best tables with a view of the street in the corner.
Javier was our server and was more than attentive but never a nuisance. He was knowledgeable about the menu and even joked with us a bit.
The filet's were wonderful and the sides were plenty to share for the four of us.
We won't even go into how good the desert was!! The chocolate cake and cheesecake were enormous and yummy.
We will be back!!!
Ridiculous unless you aspire to be on a “Housewives of X” show. Great service but much better steakhouses of much greater value on the city.
Excellent food .. the filet mignon was perfect. Great atmosphere and friendly, professional staff. Highly recommend going if you’re in the area.
LOVED IT! Never disappoints!
Descent. But too commercial. The names over the speaker were tacky and the tight quarters caused spillage that was unapologetic. Delicious steaks though.
Fue una muy buena cena, lástima que el tamaño de sus pasteles no permite que una sola persona los pruebe, pedí una porción menor y se me negó. Eso MUY MAL
Splendid dining experience. Staff service was exceptional.
Awesome start to finish. Joe our server was fantastic.
