My brothers turn to buy and he wanted to go to Jack Gibbons. We normally go to the Weber Grill or Coopers Hawk. The main dining room only had 2 waitresses and a full house. We waited 45 minutes between ordering beverages and ordering our dinner. The complementary slaw was straight out of a bag and bottle ;; and the... More

The food was excelant and so was the service. Went on Easter, the only thing to complain about was that they packed a lot of people in, probably added a few tables. This made it impossible to get up once you were seated and waitresses could not help bur bump against you if you sat on the end.

If your looking for a high end old school night out of fine food and drink, Jack Gibbons is the place. No new age gimmicks, just fine dinning with above average service.

This old style restaurant has great steaks and other foods. Not too pricey. Great service. Laid back atmosphere. Good for large groups. Southside icon.

Try one of the old time ice cream drinks like a Brandy Alexander and see how perfection is ! The type of restaurant you can sit and visit with friends and not... More

Jack Gibbons is a old time steak house that is loaded with the vibes of steak houses of the 1960's era. It is dark and not very well lit. They have valet parking and a parking lot for those who wish to park themselves. The staff is friendly and very attentive. The food is awesome. I had a Porterhouse steak... More

The best filet I ever had. Hands down. The ribeye was also very good and all the meats cooked perfectly to our requested temperature, but the filet rocked. I loved the retro atmosphere. Things I could have done without: felt like being upsold when asked for recommendations, kinda being forgotten about by the server after ordering (the place was very... More

Dinner with my husband was perfect. We had a great table that was tucked in middle. Warm and cozy. I forgot to take pics before we started eating, so that's why you have to look closely. Lol. Delectable pork chops. Thick and juicy with perfect grilling, and seasoned to perfection. The prime rib will always be the best in our... More

Had a T-Bone steak medium rare with a baked potato. My wife had the white meat chicken. Had a great vodka martini. Hope to return again soon. Very good coffee. Jeannine was our server and was very good. Valet parking too.
