The included salad and fillet mignon were delicious, as were the steamed spinach and French fries. Wine choices were plentiful, including by the glass, and desserts were enormous in size. The wait staff was most attentive. While this is a pricey restaurant, it is well...More

My husband and I spent about $200 here and it was a complete waste. Texas roadhouse steaks taste better than these. Don't waste your money. Sides were underwhelming. The crab avocado app we got sounded great in theory but was just a fancy smancy app...More

Now this is a steakhouse. I'm still thinking about the 13 oz sirloin I ordered, so tender and tasty. The waiter brought out a tray with steak samples on it and showed us how to order the doneness. I usually order rare because it inevitably...More

Not sure where you are staying but a great spot for food at the bar in a fun atmosphere is Shaw's Crab House on Hubbard St.
Is there a kids menu?

Tops on the dessert list for us is the heavenly Carrot Cake. But be advised that it is so tall that it can be shared by 2-3 people. Enjoy !

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.
