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 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.

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.

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.

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!!

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 .

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!

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!!!

Descent. But too commercial. The names over the speaker were tacky and the tight quarters caused spillage that was unapologetic. Delicious steaks though.
