I haven’t been to Gibson’s in a few years—and it’s been quite a long time since I’ve been there for lunch—but business colleagues were kind enough to treat me recently. All I can say is I won’t stay away long again. What an outstanding dining experience, and the luncheon menu is reasonably priced to boot. Martin had the exceedingly unique... More

Everything was great! The food and the service were fantastic. I would for sure visit again when in town and highly recommend. Wait until you see the desserts.

Its so good, we are headed back to Chicago (from Tampa) for our anniversary. It should say a lot when a couple books their dinner reservation prior to booking their flight. We absolutely loved our experience at Gibson's and have chosen to fly back to Chicago to go again. Our initial visit was on a Saturday night and the place... More

It's Gibsons...a Chicago staple for a reason. Unbelievable food, outstanding service, and fantastic atmosphere. Our server even brought a complementary ice cream sundae for our anniversary because the other deserts were just too big. Always get a steak and always trust your waiter's suggestions here and you can't go wrong

My wife and 13 year old son had a early dinner here. The service is as good as it gets. Waiter was very helpful and the assistant was outstanding. Assistant never allowed our drinks to get less than 3/4 full. Kept crumbs cleaned from table and removed all tableware timely and in stealth mode. Son had child's fillet dinner not... More

My family and I had lunch here on 1/18/15 and it was very good. My wife and I shared the caprese salad and the rib eye steak sandwich and it was very good. My wife also had the bookbinders fish soup and she said it was outstanding. The kids each had a cheeseburger and I thought the burger was outstanding.... More

Came here for dinner with my wife and it was decent. I've had better steaks but I was glad that I tried this place. Don't get me wrong, it was a good steak, but I've had better. The sides were pretty good as well. This place has been around a long time and I'm glad I can say I tried... More
