Fabulous steak, amazing desserts! Personally, I simply cannot eat that much...but the go-box lasted another three meals! I was taken there for my birthday by my Chicago-born-and-bred BFF, and found Gibsons a quite delightful reprieve from a previous year's Bowling Ball Pizzas at Gino's East! For those with enormous appetites and expense accounts, you'll enjoy the knowledgeable waitstaff as much... More

It is a very nice lunch location. The atmosphere winks at old Chicago and has stellar service. The potions were good size and it was easy to have a steak sliced and served family style.

Visited this overpriced restaurant with my fiancee on February 19 after a friend recommended the place and I must say that it was not what I expected. The place is supposedly popular for their steaks, however, the steak the served recommended was almost under average, overcooked in the outside and undercooked in the inside. The meat was not soft and... More

My wife and I enjoyed a late dinner at the bar one night. The burgers were excellent. My wife had a piece of lemon meringue pie that was huge. The pie slice had to be at least 6 inches high and probably a quarter of a whole pie. There was a piano player that played very well. The place was... More

Arriving at this restaurant at a busy hour, despite not having a reservation, we were seated immediately. Gregory greeted us right away and offered to provide cocktails. We ordered wine and beef carpaccio. It was finely sliced and well flavored dressed with an arugula salad perfectly coated with a lemon vinaigrette. We ordered a rib eye grilled medium. It was...

I visited this place several times and I always enjoyed it. Rockefeller oysters are my favorite entree, but place is known for its steaks which are splendid. Well done

Everything about our experience at Gibson's Steak house was outstanding! We went there to celebrate our son's graduation from Navy boot camp in Great Lakes. They treated all of us as honored guests. They made a big deal over my son (and also some other new sailors with their parents). Our excellent meal was topped off with a surprise chocolate... More

Cannot say enough about this place. Our waiter was absolutely fantastic and did a thorough job explaining the cuts of meat and helping to pick the perfect steak. The lobster for the appetizer was the best lobster I've ever had. Food was cooked to perfection. No doubt you will leave this place satisfied. Can't wait until my next dining experience... More

Great lively atmosphere. Need to be patient while waiting for table because it is well worth the wait. Steaks are so delicious and salad was outstanding. MAKE SURE you leave room for the dessert it has to be the best in Chicago!

A group of us went to Gibson's downtown this Saturday to celebrate my husband's birthday. Like I remembered it, the ambiance, the service, the food... All delicious. My daughter ordered a dish none of us had ever had before and it was delicious - the skirt steak. Highly recommend it. Bone-in sirloin and filets were all really good. The only... More

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighbourhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
