The Christner family invites you to join them at Orlando's favorite for prime steak and lobster. Opened in 1993, Christner's is truly a family business "we have very little turnover because our employees are part of the family"!!! Our customers are locals...business people... travelers...vacationers and sports stars... including many celebrities. Everyone agrees...outstanding menu...professional staff and America's Most Award Winning Steakhouse!! The Christners maintain an informal flavor of warm, hands-on, personal hospitality. As Russ said, "Hey, we're just a humble little steakhouse" Enter a guest, leave a friend. The Bread: Baked fresh daily and served piping hot to your table. Rip it. Break it. Just don't cut it with a knife. The Beef: Prime, aged corn-fed straight from the Midwest never frozen and cut to order right off the loin. The Lobster: Cold Water Australian Tails. The Wine Room: 5500 bottles of selected wines to choose from.

Not too shabby

We made a reservation for Christners. We arrived and we greeted by valet staff who were great. Upon entering, the hostest stand was good. Our server (can't remember her name) had been working for the company for quite a long time. She was fantastic. She explained every aspect of the experience... read more

Took a group of 15 for a birthday get together and had a private room. With a private room I can not attest to all the other bad reviews on the noise or not enough room. The private room was big enough and we did not have a noise problem. 14 people had some kind of a steak, one had... More

From the time we hit the front door until the time we left...top notch! The servers, Niki and Chris were both excellent and the food speaks for itself! Great, food, sides, atmosphere, dessert (don't miss the Mandarin orange cake)

We love this restaurant for special dinners. We were not disappointed. Bar service was excellent once again with Katie taking care of us. At dinner, Bob did an excellent job. The Ahi Tuna App was awesome yet again, as was the lobster bisque. My daughter and I enjoyed the Carole's filet, which is the perfect size for a smaller appetite... More

That's for sure! We ordered a very large porterhouse steak it was perfect! As a steak has to be. Very friendly staff. Thus was one of the best restaurants we've visited during our trip in Florida. Unfortunately I live too far too go back soon.

We shared a wedge salad, 12 oz filet, chalet potatoes and topped it off with the orange cake. The food, service and atmosphere is about as good as it comes as always. Definitely give it a try.

Love their steak! Have not found any other restaurant (anywhere in the world), that can equal the quality of steaks from Christner's. My husband and I only consider this restaurant when we crave meat.

This place was delicious!! It was a second option because our first option was booked, but our party of 7 agreed that it was a lucky accident!!! Every steak was cooked perfectly! Their chateau potatoes were out of this world yummy, but to top off the meal I ordered an orange cake....I have never seen an orange cake on a... More

This was one of the best steaks I've ever eaten in my life. I ordered the filet mignon cooked medium rare and it was perfection. It was on par with Bern's Steakhouse in Tampa, FL. The bleu cheese wedge salad was perfect with lots of dressing. The onion rings were massive - I'm not sure where they even got onion... More

I took my wife to Christner's recently to celebrate her birthday and our anniversary. I had made reservations, and told them about the celebrations when they asked if it was for a special occasion. The waiter also asked, and we told him, also. More about this later..... We started with generous cocktails, well-made. A loaf of freshly baked bread was... More
