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.

Rachel was an outstanding server. Very genuine and thorough. The support staff as well were excellent. Manager stopped by to check on our experience with sincerity. Food was super good. Desserts are out of this world potion and taste wise.

The Chicago Cut beef was too dry and didn't taste as good as the other Chicago Cut in other restaurants.

OUR SERVER WAS THE BEST! Food was fabulous. Had signature ribeye and lamb chops. Perfectly prepared and delicious. Carrot cake was amazing. Could have easily fed 6-9 people.....couldn’t stop laughing when it arrived. Restaurant is loud and crowded and we sat at the windows which I was grateful for as it was much more relaxed.

Joe T and Big Dave L are the best waiters. They are true professionals and if they are your server you will be more than happy! By the way the Chicago Chop rare to med rare, double baked double stuffed potato and a lobster tail is a meal to die for. C Geraldi

I travel to Chicago typically once a year and always have dinner at Gibson's during the trip (sixth time I've been there). Unfortunately, we were seated at a table directly outside of the kitchen area (high traffic & noise), so a bit disappointing from the start. Our server was a newer staff member, she did ok, but not what we expected from past experiences (a bit sub-par). Food & wine were fantastic, but overall experience was below our expectations. We'll definitely come back and will chalk it up for an off-night.

My second time there. Mark the bartender was classic Chicago - friendly and hilarious. Daniel the server is his protege.

The hostess has been there 30 years. You get the idea

Steaks and sides were awesome.

Best steaks in Chicago.

Gibsons remains our favorite restaurant in Chicago. Food is always excellent. Wines very fairly priced for Chicago. Ambiance is fun and lively. Had a new server (Paco) who seemed disinterested though. Did not bring out the meet tray for our guests. The usual waiters are over the top. Paco was ok but not up to Gibsons standards.

The other reviews pretty much say it all. It's everything you would expect and want in a classic Chicago steakhouse. The steaks ordered were prepared exactly as ordered, and the two fish dishes were superb. Oh, and I would be remiss not to mention the amazing dessert - Macadamia Turtle Pie. It was enormous - and sooo good. Even 4 of us couldn't finish it, but we sure did try our best!! One thing, tho - for the occasions at our table and others during the evening, the waiters sang something short and with a lot of gusto. What they sang is anybody's guess. We still have absolutely no clue! We're just trusting is was something... celebratory?

Gibson’s is the quintessential steakhouse. I had the bone in filet and it was by far the best I have ever had. The service is impeccable and the ambiance is great as well. Well definitely return.

The steak was really good, but that was about it. Saw a lot of wait staff standing around talking and doing nothing, and it took awhile to be waited on at various points. Can’t exchange salads and regular sides such as fries are overpriced ala carte.

Awesome experience! Only issue was that it was my birthday (and 1st time visiting Gibson's drove down from MI) and our waiter took too long to bring out my birthday dessert so I missed out on how Gibson's celebrates a birthday😔. Had to walk up front to pay bill due to waiters time lapse. Otherwise great all the way around.

Was in town from Indy, with my wife, and grandson who was on spring break.
He likes the fancy steakhouses, and my Chicago cousin told me about Gibson’s.
Also saw it on the TV series The Leauge (very funny!), they featured Gibson’s as their watering hole.
Food is excellent, along with the staff. Didn’t feel like a stuffy place, but you’ll certainly get stuffed eating there. I wish I had room for some creme brûlée after dinner.
I also wanted to try their shrimp (which I did not), just to compare to my local goxto, St. Elmo’s.
Oh well, maybe next time!
