Recommended to us as the best place to eat steaks in Chicago. Absolutely superb filet mignon .As my wife does not eat meat she ordered shrimp cocktail which was also fresh and delicious. Faultless service and the whole dining experience was outstanding.

Tops on the dessert list for us is the heavenly Carrot Cake. But be advised that it is so tall that it can be shared by 2-3 people. Enjoy !

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.
