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.

2 of the 3 steaks were undercooked. Took 3 times to get it right. Disappointing. All else was great.

Made reservations at Gibsons due to a recommendation. Felt rushed as we were in and out in less than an hour on a Sunday evening. Our steak, mashed potatoes and mushrooms were bland and flavorless. Our vegetables and steak were undercooked.

WR cut is the best in the steak game. Menu is weak on apps and sides. Noted on Open Table and with the hostess we were celebrating our anniversary. We watched 5+ Birthday and Anniversary celebrations. Totally missed us - took for ever to get the check and was never followed up with after the food was delivered. Bad news they were not crowded for an early Sunday dinner. Will need to choose somewhere else next time.

It is still a classic in downtown. The proposition is basic steaks and sides, but I think they have been fading with time.

This is the worst steakhouse I have ever been to!!!
Completely waste of the money!!!
The waiter was nice to suggest us to order 2 pcs of 3 different kinds steak, filet mignon, Chicago cut and New York sirloin since we have a group of 10.
Every piece of the meat came with a lot of gristles, even than filet mignon!
Very disappointed about the quality of the meat!

Awesome!!! Quietly celebrating my birthday with family & friends. Everyone’s meal was FABULOUS. Our steaks were heavenly and the sea bass was to die for. Our server (so sorry I didn’t get her name) was patient and had the very best suggestions. Gibsons never ever disappoints.

Fabulous meal. Fabulous service. Busboys included.

Can’t wait to get back there.

We always visit here when in Chicago and as always had a great meal. Service is impeccable, we had Sharonda and she was very attentive.
There were some very loud vulgar men eating at the table behind us and we mentioned to her and she called the manager right over to tell them to quiet down and stop with the “F” bombs!

I thought booking well in advance would guarantee me a descent table. Although the ambiance and the food were exceptional, the corner booth right by the kitchen entrance ruined it for me right from the get-go.

There's a reason their famous, steaks are amazing, the twice baked potato yeah its almost a main course on its own, great knowledgeable service from the moment you walk in through the entire meal. Even waiting in the bar area we were offered drinks by the manager because 'it took too long to seat us', good ambiance.

If I wasn't worried about being buried in a piano case ( you will eat too much, bring stretch pants), I'd would definitely make this a regular go to on my visits to Chicago, matter of fact I might even plan a trip around a visit to Gibsons.

This was only my third time dining at Gibson's, but I always look forward to the experience. The location is great, the food is always exceptional, and the service is first class. I ordered a cocktail in the bar, but my table was ready almost immediately. My friends were dining here for the first time, and they were very impressed. They said they'd be back with their family who lives in Chicago. I am from Texas and we have really good steaks. Gibson's did not disappoint on any of the cuts we had. Thank you for keeping the quality and high standards that I have come to expect from Gibson's.
