This is the best steakhouse, and we always go here when in Chicago. The prices are expensive, but food and drinks are high quality. Always excellent service!

This is a lively, boisterous restaurant with amazing food, terrific service, and a wonderful atmosphere. I've eaten here at least 10 times over the last 10 years and always had a great meal.

I feel like this stop is a must if you are in Chicago. Waiters are friendly and the atmosphere is classic steak house. Don't miss the dessert, but beware. You will need a to-go bag for it! The ice cream cake with macadamia nuts fed 8 of us!!!

We took our two teenage sons to Chicago on our way to visit family for Thanksgiving and wanted them to experience a real mid-western steakhouse. Gibson's did not disappoint. It's infinitely hard to impress teenagers and our meals did the trick.. especially the desserts! Fantastic!

This was our spot for dinner and drinks. Great first visit! The bartender, Paul was the best! I asked for something 'fruity' and he made me the best raspberry Martini I've ever had. That's high praise since I'm not a fan of most raspberry flavored foods/drinks/liquor. Dinner was the Sliced 8oz Strip with Spinach & Mashed Potatoes. The steak was... More

Our company's holiday party took place at Gibson's and what I recall most was the great service and the dessert. I'm a vegetarian, and they made something for me. It didn't blow me away like the steaks blew away my colleagues. But I expected as much, and these comments of course give benefit of the doubt to Gibson's.

This place is all about the size. Huge steaks but only average. 1lb of lobster but over cooked. King crab was decidedly average. Dessert was impressive in size but again just ok. The brussel sprouts side was excellent but other sides disappointing - wouldn't go back.

This is a place you get food as big as your body. While the price might seem high the fact it is 2 or the meal portion means you eat left overs as more meals. So it is really a pretty good value. But you come for people watching also. You might see some famous people. The service is great.

When booking your reservation ask for Mo's section. Mo has been here 28 years and all the celebrities sit with him. If you have 4 people or less you can sit at Frank Sinatras table. The seafood app is always a great call. The steaks and seafood are my fav. Listen to what your waiter recommends. You will never have... More

The whole package was amazing - atmosphere, decor, service and of course the food. The restaurant was decorated for NYE and all the guests got hats/tiara's, hooters, rattles etc to celebrate when the time came. Our server was amazing, always on hand when you wanted him but never over bearing or loitering, His knowledge was so impressive and he talked... More

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighbourhood Profile
Gold Coast
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 Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
