Gibson's is always busy and somewhat loud but also an overall special evening. Food presentation is good, steaks are excellent. Deserts are enormous and the service that I have received at four different occasions has always been attentive and entertaining.

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

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.

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.
