“Great food”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

I'm not a big steak person, but I very much enjoyed the meal we had at Gibson's. The waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful. The portions are enormous, so we split a steak and salad. My half of the steak was done exactly how I like it (well done) and my boyfriend's piece was medium well, which is exactly what we were hoping for. The salad was excellent and a great compliment for the steak. We went early as we had other commitments in the evening, so the restaurant was relatively quiet.

“Pricey but good”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Went to Gibson's and had a great, but pricey meal. The portions are huge but they let you share the side which is great. The plate of fries and plate of broccoli was more than enough for the three of us to share. We all had to take leftovers home. Huge servings of the steaks. Service was good and we enjoyed it.

“The City of Big Shoulders is also the City of Big Steaks”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Can't go wrong here. Giant, flavorful steaks and seafood. Traditional steakhouse atmosphere with plenty of dark wood and leather. It took our server a while to get to us even though we were there for an early dinner and the main dining area was rather empty. But once they got there, the service was great. A meat tray was presented and cuts of meat and portions explained. I had a filet and it was juicy and flavorful. The sides are also big and meant to be shared. You won't leave hungry. It's pricey but worth every penny.

“Average - expected more”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Average dinner, expected more based on other reviews. Steak was over cooked the first time, second try was just ok. Expected more for USDA Prime. Peppercorn crusted option overwhelmed the flavor of the steak. Service and the atmosphere was good.
