I have been going to Jack Gibbon's Gardens for years. There is no finer restaurant in the south suburbs than Jack's. We have had most everything on the menu and it never disappoints, the surf and turf is out of this world and the fried...More

We were invited out to Jack Gibbons for a good steak dinner. Very fine dining from cocktails to dessert. Steaks were done to perfection.

We went to Gibbons on Christmas Eve. First of all it is impossible to park without using their valet service. We were in a party of five. They seated us at a table in the corner. We had to move the table so that all...More

An old fashioned supper club steak place. Food very good - service was fine but nothing exceptional. Casual. Went early (4:30 pm) on a Saturday night. Gets crowded around 5:30. Tables tightly packed, but manageable. Very dated decorating as you would expect.The lighting is a...More

There's a good reason that Gibbons has been around for so many years: it continues to deliver delicious food and attentive service. You know that you're going "old school" when the bus boy delivers three bean salad, cottage cheese, marinated tomatoes, and cole slaw along...More
