We went to Gibsons last weekend. We have been to Gibson's before and never had a complaint. The service was bad. We had to keep asking for stuff. We had to ask for extra place settings. We asked for more water. We didn't bother to...More

The service and hospitality were the best. I know they are known for steaks but I enjoyed the seafood. Scallops were perfect. Desserts are perfect. I wish I had taken pictures.

Every steakhouse tells you they have the best cuts of meat. If you want to try one that actually does, it’s Gibson’s. Yea, it’s not cheap. But yes, it is amazing. Staff, food, location, decor. A++++. It’s a must every time I’m in Chicago. Let’s...More

We were looking for a high-end steakhouse with Chicago flair, and we most certainly found it. Excellent service (not at all pretentious), excellent food. This was a fantastic meal. The W.R.'s Chicago Cut was fabulous. I would highly recommend this place.

........and a traditional dining experience with professional waiters. To me, it's a classic steak and potato place. I'm not a dessert person but the cake slices were HUGE. One of the best bar atmospheres too. If you don't want red meat, select another place.

All the food is excellent here. Who cares if the staff judges you? If you want carrot cake, this is a great place to get it. But you'll will be missing out on great steaks, seafood and sides.

It doesn't really matter. You will want to drink one no matter what to take the edge off before the dinner bill comes. ;-)

They were when we were there. What they seemed to be out of were several of the desserts early on a Monday night!

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.
