The filet I had was charred pretty good and need a bunch of salt/pepper. The atmosphere is dank and dark like an old wisconsin supper club. Our server was great, attentive and friendly. I would probably not return.

Went to this place to celebrate my wife's birthday.Reservations for 7 P.M. were a waste of time. The place was packed. Waited a good 45min.to get a table.Service was slow.Waitress was nice.Steaks were about the same quality as other places in the area.Nothing special. Soup & salad were good. Prices were high.Over all,i would not return.

We went here for my husbands birthday with family and had a wonderful experience! Margie was our server and was one of the best and most personable servers we have ever had! Request her! We all ordered steaks and crab legs or lobster and let me tell you the steak was melt in your mouth and the portions of crab... More

The food is great. Everything on the menu is tasty. We Go there all the time. We've gotten to know the employees. One waitress is from the old neighborhood and the bartender used to park cars there. True the decor is dated but it does not effect the great food.

The steaks are in a plate of grease. The place needs to be updated. Have tried the place several times. You either love it or hate it.

If you like "old school" then you will like Jack Gibbons. Dark paneling, 1970's decor and a restaurant that hasn't seen a penny in improvements in 30+ years then you will like Jack Gibbons. The food is very good all though their steaks are NOT Prime according to our waitress. Typical Chicago steakhouse fare. All in all a solid restaurant... More

This is a really great place to eat! Prices & menu items for all budgets & tastes! We had some wonderful oysters Rockefeller, Long Island duck, with fresh salads & potatoes. Service was spot on, food was hot and delish. Can't wait to go back!

Amazing wonderful steaks. Everything we had there was amazing. The steaks melted like butter in your mouth. The sides were very large and enlighten to share with several people. Although on the pricey side it was worth it. Great food with great friends!

Steak outstanding. Let's start with that. Soup ok, breadsticks stale, hidden extras not good. $4.95 for instant garlic mashed. $4.50 for dressing on the salad, ok blue cheese but come on....good but way over priced....

My mother from years back dined here before going dancing with my step dad.They would rave about it. Well my first experience was very disappointing. Remodeling of course would help it is very dingy and old looking and not in a good way. I wanted lime and water the waitress brought me little pieces of lime in a napkin so... More
