Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: The upscale chains all over town have nothing on this home-grown steakhouse. The bar and hallway are packed nightly with beefy businessmen in dark suits, lovelies in little black dresses, sports figures, politicos and average Joes and Janes waiting for tables in the clubby, wood-paneled dining room punctuated by potted palms. Prime aged steaks --- displayed raw tableside along with giant lobster tails --- are the main draw, but chops and fish also rank high. Consider starting with the iced shrimp cocktail and splitting a football-size baked potato or an order of fries. Everything is on a gargantuan scale, from the how-do-they-get-them-so-cold martinis to cake slices that easily feed four. You don't have to spend a fortune, however: affable servers encourage sharing, while the burgers and other bar food items can be ordered in the dining room. Also located at 5464 N. River Rd., Rosemont, 847-928-9900; and 2105 S. Spring Rd., Oak Brook, 630-954-0000.
