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.

Very Good Food with Excellent Service

Met up with some local friends here for the first time at their suggestion. The steaks were very good. The sides were nothing special; the spinach was bland, the Lobster Mac and Cheese was oddly sweet. My favorite was the mashed potatoes. The decor is nice and soothing. The service was... read more

If you are in Orlando you need to stop by and have dinner at Christner's. The salads are great,as well as the steaks and fried shrimp. The service is first class. Either get a quiet table or sit at the bar in the back room. The carrot cake is special.

I am always afraid to say something is "the best" because I don't want to set an expectation & have someone disappointed, but this was THE BEST filet mignon I have ever had! Delicious! I was with a group of 16 ppl & everyone was raving about their meal. Our waiter was entertaining, delightful, and knew what to recommend on... More

Salad was no very good, but the entre was poorly prepared as if an amateur made it. My wife and I were very disappointed and will remove this over priced low value restaurant from our list.

This place exceeded our expectations! The steaks where on-point perfect! The service just wonderful and we even got to meet one of the owners which gave a free honeymoon dessert! I'm going back every time I'm in town!

The service was fantastic! Dave, Nikki, Dan, Tony and Eric couldn't have been more friendly or helpful! Everything was mouthwateringly delicious, the Creo wine, shrimp medley appetizers, fried oysters, creamed corn, spinach Osage, potatoes au gratin, creme brûlée, and Whiskey bread pudding, oh yes and the steaks. Some bites of the steak were out of this world. The secret here... More

I recently visited Orlando, Fl. I was in search for an amazing steak preferably from our favorite spot, Del Frisco's, however, my GPS brought me here. At first I was skeptical about the quality, with the name change and all. I couldn't have been more wrong. The food was better than I had imagined. The featured drink list was fresh... More

I made a reservation here to satisfy my husband's need for a good steakhouse while on vacation. He said it was as good as the top New York steak houses. I thought the service was excellent and the decor had an old school vibe to it that was a nice change of pace; dark paneled walls, high-backed burgundy booths, wall-to-wall... More
