Classic fare comes with a side of people-watching at the original location of the chophouse chain.
Atmosphere is great! Especially eating outside. My friend and I shared the salmon and a salad. It was tasty but small portion. This place is super close to my hotel So I’ll give them another try!
One of my favorite spots, and since the pandemic & being mostly stuck to the Gold Coast area they’ve really gone above & beyond to make locals feel at home. Before they reopened I had ordered frozen steaks from them, then take out, so I was excited to make it one of my first stops when outdoor dining reopened. Experiencing the extended outdoor dining into the street in the Viagra Triangle is really a once in a lifetime type thing. If you go, make sure to get a dirty martini, but be careful not to have too many Oh ps- their opentable was down, so I had to call to make a reservation, just FYI
Takeout order. “Pickup behind the restaurant”. The whole alley looks like a crack den. Finally ask a valet where to pick up food. Apparently the pick up is at the frog bar. Take back to the hotel. No utensils. Thanx.
Sat here on a warm night to enjoy consistent, well made steaks with friends. The wine paring was fantastic as well. The restaurant has done very well in terms of covid-related protections. This place is a Chicago steak staple and nothing from tonight changes that perception.
Recommend you get 3-4 entrees and family style it. Also don’t hesitate to get multiple forms of potato. Mashed, baked, fries, get em all. Had to request to see the Chef because my steak was 2 degrees over cooked for proper medium rare. Told him he made a great effort but I expect improvement next time I’m here and $10 knocked off the bill of course. 5 stars
We love a good steak house. There is a certain romance to them. Our waitress was knowledgeable and friendly. My ribeye was cooked Perfect and seasoned well. I loved the vibe here and can’t wait to go back!
I went there today with my girlfriend for after lunch oysters. Cuz when we were walking by we saw an advertisement that they have a happy hour from 3-6 for 1$ oyster. We sitter at the table and they told us that this promotion is not available even that they had a HUGE sign in front of their door! They called manager and the manager was extremely not helpful saying that this promo in not available although they have a HUGE sign on the door! I’m very disappointed by the stuff and specifically about the manager that didn’t even try to satisfy us! Also I specifically ask a waiter if they have a big oysters, since I’m paying 3.25 each, she said that they medium size. I mean…look at them…they XXS DONT RECOMMEND
I love Gibson’s and (Hugo’s.) Me and my boyfriend have eaten here countless times. Always consitent, good food, professional services and very well priced. During this covid time, i have been ordering food thru delivery. Last time i requested extra wine mushroom sauce on my meatloaf. and they did it just as i requested. Their local favourites are all very delicious.
Gibson’s— You have my entire heart. Might have been half the reason I moved to Chicago & maybe half the reason I can’t ever leave. After about 5 trips here now I can honestly say every time is just as good as the last, if not better. We came in the winter for my husbands birthday and sat inside of course. The vibe last November was a chill cozy steakhouse. Not too fancy but they do have white table cloths so you can dress up and feel fancy or dress casual if you prefer. Since covid and summer has hit- the outdoor patio is HUGE and makes you feel like you’re in Europe. LOVEEEEEE sitting outside here people watching! ALWAYS amazing service!! We always have different servers but they’ve all been great! Last one I can remember was Dante and he was super great! Food is alwaysssss incredible!! Filet sliders are my new addiction! UGH the fries are the bestttt ! Desserts are HUGEEE and great for sharing (probably 5 people) or taking home. If you’re a dessert person and you’re looking for an after dinner spot, this would be my first choice! Chocolate pie Is sooo silky with a nice cookie crunch base. I’ve only ever had the filet here and after trying about every other fancy steakhouse in Chicago & Orlando I can tell you Gibson’s is THE BEST!! The sides are all huge and worth the price, you will leave feeling full and completely satisfied! LOVE YOU Gibson’s !!
Came in for a late dinner and was very impressed. Our waitress was great and quite knowledgeable. They also had solid COVID protocols in place as the tables were distanced and our temperatures were taken before entering. Started with the house salad with ranch. Vegetables were fresh and the ranch dressing was ok. Got the Chicago center cut steak (22 oz) and was very impressed. The steak was cooked perfectly. The taste was amazing and it melted in my mouth. Added blue cheese on top was also quite delicious. The creamed spinach was also amazing. Fresh and good flavor. Ended with the carrot cake. As you can see, it was absolutely huge!! The frosting was delicious and the cake was tasty and moist. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a great steak in Chicago!
