Had a T-Bone steak medium rare with a baked potato. My wife had the white meat chicken. Had a great vodka martini. Hope to return again soon. Very good coffee. Jeannine was our server and was very good. Valet parking too.

Jack Gibbons has been on our list of places to try. So glad we did. Yes, it is old and dark inside but that's the charm. It was clean, they used fresh linens, and your water glasses were always filled. The food was great, drinks tasty and the Death by Chocolate was scrumptious! Everyone was polite and attentive.

King and Queen filets were outstanding! Shrimp Dejon was excellent, except among the large shrimp was one half the size, but done to perfection. Waitress excellent & bus. Very pleased!

This is the place if you are looking for a good steak. The smallest is the 8 oz. filet and it was still plenty big for my husband's appetite. I had the appetizer sampler that included garlic shrimp, marinated chicken and beef filet kabobs--delicious! Service was awesome in both the dining room and at the bar. Very old fashioned décor.

If you are looking for 5 star steak that would make Ruth's Chris and Mortons re-think their quality, then this is the place! Perfection in an historic setting. Wine and Scotch selections are wonderful. Just GO! I mean NOW! You will not be dissappointed by the atmosphere or friendly, knowledgable staff. Can't wait to get back!

I've been going here for many years. Any special occasion is celebrated at Jack Gibbons because you know the food is going to be good and plentiful. I almost always get the petite filet and the hashed brown potatoes. Can't go wrong!
