So, firstly the steaks are good, big and pricey. They’re not the best I’ve had but you won’t be disappointed with them. However the dessert was probably the best I’ve ever had. The cherry pie is out of this world. I’d go back and eat...More

Fabulous steaks. We got the 7 oz steaks. They were big & delicious! We had the chocolate mousse pe and it was beyond fabulous! It would feed 6 easily but so worth the calories. Service was very good. Casual dining.

"Where do you want to go to celebrate your birthday?" my wife asked. "Gibsons," I responded. We chose Gibsons for our 42nd anniversary so why not Gibsons for my 78th birthday? It was a glorious Sunday, September 2. There were more people dining and strolling...More

Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of
Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The
original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion
here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic
mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also
find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred
restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping
fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The

It doesn't really matter. You will want to drink one no matter what to take the edge off before the dinner bill comes. ;-)

They were when we were there. What they seemed to be out of were several of the desserts early on a Monday night!

Unbelievable food, efficient & fun service, & the highest quality products available, served in an exciting setting, seems like a simple equation for a great Saturday night out. The difference at Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse is that this is a nightly occurrence with the same excitement & weekend energy found every day of the week. As thousands before have discovered, it only takes one trip to get you hooked.
