Absolutely phenomenal visit. Steaks cooked to perfection, baked potato that was steaming hot, excellent cocktails—we enjoyed every bite of our meal, as did our children.

We went to dinner at Gibsons because we heard that it was the best steak house in Chicago and it did not disappoint!! We had 5 people in our party and the waiter Moe was fabulous! He explained everything and he was a big part of the experience.

Let me start by saying, we’ve been HUGE fans for over 15 years and make Gibson’s a must on our annual visit to Chicago. We made reservations two months ago to celebrate our son’s birthday. I was assured his favorite, “meaning of life” cake would be available the night we visited. It wasn’t. We were told we must’ve been misinformed when I phoned the reservation in. That was where the disappointment began. Steaks were great as always, sides not so much. I asked for a half order of Brussels sprouts and was told they couldn’t do that. Mushrooms were served ice cold and returned/replaced. Spinach lacked flavor. It seems the blue cheese dressing is missing it’s usual chunks of cheese. The most disappointing part of our experience was the MARGARINE now served with the bread basket. Our server was somewhat robotical and lacked warmth. When I asked if the cake could be ordered and shipped to us, she was very quick to say they don’t do that either. Overall, not the Gibson’s we’ve experienced over the years. We’re already planning to find a new steakhouse to include on our future family vacations. Sad to see this tradition come to an end.

A trip to Chicago would not be complete without making this stop. Four of us on a business trip all made our first appearances here at Gibson’s. So warm an inviting every person that worked there greeted us on the way in and the way out.

The steaks were incredible, but what made this night was our waiter ‘Carl’! Carl has been there 22 years and was so proud, helpful and knowledgeable. He treated us like we were family.

Big steaks, big portions in a stylish restaurant that makes you feel like home. Can’t wait to go back on our next trip to Chicago.
