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.

Service was mediocre at best. Server did not appear to be very happy that he had to work. For as much as they make, his attitude was subpar.

Took my son and his date after prom to eat and Gibson's. The food was excellent! My husband and I sat at a separate table. The restaurant was very accommodating with separate seating and so were our waiters! If you go, ask for Joe, he was beyond amazing!!!! He was our waiter for the night and it was nothing but top-level service from him throughout the entire night. Can't wait to go back to Gibson's with family and friends!

I have eaten at Gibson's many times and the food and service this time was not close to being up to par. The food came out cold. They steaks had no flavor and looked like they were boiled. Typically they come out nice and seared when ordered MR. I will return as it was probably just a bad night.

The steaks were exceptional. The wait staff was intuitive and friendly but not in-your-face. The reservation system was simple and worked perfectly. Decor is simple and a bit dated but we all noted we could hear each other! Contemporary design doesn’t often doesn’t prioritize this. Will have to revisit next time we’re in your great city.

We had a booking on a busy Friday night. In some places you could expect some lag in the service but not in this one.
The meat selection was presented in front of your own eyes, everything explained, questions promptly answered. No overselling of sides or anything, we felt like they wanted us to enjoy - what we did. Oysters, tuna, creamy oyster soup and tomahawk shared by 2 persons. Tomahawk asked and received medium rare.

Great food and great wine list that is fairly priced. Too many tables close together but other than that a top-class steakhouse.

Our service and food was absolutely amazing! The only thing that we weren't crazy about we’re the booth tables where you basically sit right next to other people. It’s a small space with a lot of tables packed in and a ton of waiters so it’s very busy and loud. Other than that the location was great and the service and food impeccable

The steak was significantly scorched and under seasoned. In fact, the steak was so scorched that the initial taste on my palate was of something burned. I couldn’t believe the waiter actually brought this to the table. Please note that the steak was ordered and delivered cooked medium. Nevertheless, the fire must’ve been too hot (we were one of the first customers) because the top and bottom was all black and crunchy (not seared...there is a difference). We did not complain, as we wanted an unadulterated Gibson’s experience. Frankly, it was grossly underseasoned and overcooked.

The best fillet minion I've ever had. Gibson's is my go to restaurant for special occasions. This particular time we were celebrating Mother's Day. Earlier in the year we went there for my wife's birthday. My wife is not a meat eater but again the fillet is so good she always has it when we go to Gibson's.

Gibsons never disappoints. We go there a few times a year since it is my mother's favorite. The service is top notch, the food is always cooked to perfection. And, the piano bar is always handy before or after dinner.

We are always satisfied with our food at Gibson’s but not this time. Meat was not the temp we asked for, and the same server we had last time had the same bad attitude this time. He accidentally kicked our to go bag and did not pay attention to our table enough. We were served fermented grapefruit juice again (that happened before last summer) which he didn’t even apologize for. I get this is the least ordered juice on the menu but c’mon not my fault they don’t keep fresh juices in the restaurant. Bittersweet though because we really love this place and the second “average” experience at Gonson’s is just not what we were looking for.

Best steak I’ve ever eaten. I had the filet with garlic butter and blue cheese. My daughter’s steak was over cooked. They brought a new to her that was perfectly cooked and took her meal off the bill. Our server was knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions. The house salad was meh-basically iceberg with a couple cherry tomatoes. The drinks were tasty and strong. One dessert is big enough for the whole table. We got the turtle pie. It’s an ice cream pie. There were 5 in our party and we could not finish it. It was wonderful.

City parking is one thing, but $20 to go inside and eat makes U want to stay in the suburbs
