“Great steaks”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

This place has great steak but pricey. My problem is the huge portions. Does one really need a 24 oz piece of steak? The smallest portion was a 10 oz tenderloin. I got the peppercorn coated version: spicy but excellent.

For a pricey place poor ambience: loud and tables really close to each other.

“THE Steakhouse in Chicago”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

I had heard a positive buzz about this place before, but I thought it would be just like Lawry's. To be honest it is light years away from it. The decor of the place is average, it looks sort of like an upscale pizza hut; the good thing is that it is laid back and not so stuffy.

The food is insane, on friday's they have a lobster bisque that makes your heart skip a beat, or two. Also the crab salad with avocado is really good.

And the beef, well it is fantastic. Well cooked. Try the mushrooms and the twice baked potato as sides, you will love it. Enjoy!

“Our Waiter Made It Special.”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

The atmosphere at Gibsons was lovely. The food was very good - I hate to admit this, but I had 4 slices of that incredible raisin bread, before my steak even arrived.

With this being day two in Chicago, and having adjusted to the huge portions restaurants in Chicago seem to serve, my husband and I knew to share our meal. And we agreed that the steak was good, I wouldn't say it was the best steak I've ever had..but it was cooked property, and was very good.

Having said that, when we return to Chicago, we will dine at Gibsons again because of our waiter, Michael K. He is the reason we will return (and we will ask to sit in his section!). Michael was such a treat - he had such a sunny disposition, and he answered our NUMEROUS questions and gave us so many ideas about what to do with our time in Chicago, it was really this personal touch that made our evening so special.
