“Definitely the most popular steakhouse in Chicago”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

While I do think this is the best steakhouse in Chicago, I do feel it to be a little too crowded sometimes & overwhelming. This is all because the tables are just very close to each other.

They have fabulous choice meats and the service and attention to detail is A+.

Every time I'm in Chicago I eat here.

“No one does it better”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

Gibson's never disappoints.
I prefer to sit in the bar at the high top tables.
Sally, is our sever and she is awesome.
All the servers are personable and professional.
Every restaurant really needs to take a page from Gibson's.
The food is delicious, there is something for everyone on the menu.
Don't let the thought of a big steak scare you, they have a large selection, at a variety of prices, check out the local options.
Gibson's never lets you down, they are the best of the best,

“Great service and food, a little pricey though”
Reviewed August 21, 2014 via mobile

This was a nice way to start our visit to Chicago. We had to call ahead and book and it was fairly busy even at 9pm when we went but the food and service were excellent. It did cost a bit more than average, I'd recommend having a look at the menu/prices beforehand remembering to account for gratuities of up to 20%.

“Too busy to enjoy it.”
Reviewed August 20, 2014 via mobile

Big steaks, big prices, too crowded and noisy. Had a 7:00 reservation and had to wait 30 minutes before our table was ready. So crowded you felt like a sardine. The food was tasty and the service was good. The prices are high but I expected this. It's worth going and try for yourself but you will probably feel like it's is overrated.

“Crowded, loud. Very good, not great.”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

Was with large group. Service was excellent, one of the best servers I have ever had. Everything was as described by server. I had a filet...was cooked properly. Food was good. I have been to many steakhouses across the country and this one just didn't set itself apart. We ordered some type of apple pie dessert that was ok, but was no comparison to the apple pie dessert at Morton's. Didn't come out heated.
It was a cramped, very loud restaurant the night I was there.
