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.

Steaks came out cold. When we advised the waiter, he took them back and had them put on grill/ stove again which then caused steaks to not be at desired temperature. Unfortunately we had to send steaks back a second time. By the time steaks arrived at the right temperature all sides ordered were cold. To add insult to injury one person in the party got ill immediately upon eating his food.

Our reservations were at 7 p.m. and even though the place was packed we were seated by 7:15 p.m.
Our servers were informative, gave suggestions and our food came out fantastic. We will be going back.

We had dinner Saturday night and felt rushed the entire time. I was in the middle of a bowl of soup when my salad was served. Since it was not hot it didn't matter. However, after a couple of forks of my salad I was served my steak. I sent it back since I was not ready. A few minutes latter my steak came cold as well as my wife's fish and the potatoes. They return to the kitchen and brought them back a little warmer but not hot.
I understand business is to turn the tables but to have dinner in less than an hour is crazy. My next reservation at a restaurant will to have a couple of cocktails a good bottle of wine and a hot dinner. It won't be at Gibson's. We are not visitors but local and were very disappointed.

Great food! But wait time is long even you made reservation. With price, you expect quiet fancy restaurant but it is more like noisy dining hall. Some tables are locating right next to the kitchen entrance or customer entrance which you feel you are in the cheap diner. The quality of foods are great! Service is great too!

Overhyped

The steak was overdone - not worth the hype or cost.

Ironically, my wife's King Crab was great!! Go figure

Took a couple of friends who were visiting Chicago for the first time and Gibson's, of course, did not disappoint. The steaks were cooked perfectly, the service was above reproach and most importantly, our guests were delighted. Thank you for making such a positive impression with our guests and for showing that Chicago has some of the best restaurants in the world.

See you next time!

I ordered the Halibut. About 30 minutes later, after I had finished my salad, the server informed me that they were out of Halibut. We had a reservation at 5:30PM, so it seemed strange to me that it took so long to be notified of this. The server was very apologetic and gave me a complimentary glass of wine.

Super impressed with Gibson's. Took my husband for his birthday and he absolutely loved it! Our reservation was made for 5pm but we arrived early and they seated us right away. Our server and bussing staff were all so friendly and helpful in suggestions and pairings. Did add a note to our reservation for a birthday dessert for my husband and they came through. Worth the drive/money to make any occasion special!

I would expect the best food and service for the price paid, and Gibson’s delivered. The steak was excellent and cooked perfectly. Lobster tail was huge and very tasty. My wife and I shared both and the server cut the steak and lobster family style. Drinks were well made and tasted great, but a bit small for the price. They brought out a nice chocolate sundae for my wife’s birthday, which was a nice touch.

The waiter became uninterested in me when I did not order cocktails. It was the driest steak and baked potato I’ve ever eaten in 55 years of life. I had to drink water just to swallow the dry food. It was terrible. My steak was medium well.

If you want a hot sizzling steak this is not for you. They bring food out on large trays and they sit until the waiter decides he’ll give it to you. Baked potato was also cold. Ordered coffee with the worst ice cream sundae ever. The coffee took 12 minutes and was also cold
