Food is always great! Seafood is best bet - the crab cakes are awesome! The potato croquet is very good. It is a BYOB which saves money. On quiet evenings the chef comes out and speaks with patrons.

Shrimp cocktail was just ok. Lobster bisque soup had no taste. Veal chop special was fatty and very overpriced at 34.00. This use to be a favorite place of ours but we wont be back.

My wife and I went to Christies last night. We have been there before. The food has always been good. We ordered the Sea Food Special as our appetizer which was very good. For my main course I ordered the Linguini and Clam Sauce. Being Italian and not just because my last name ends in a vowel, my parents are... More

This newly expanded Italian restaurant is tucked into a strip mall, so I had never noticed it in all my time driving past it. They really need a proper sign. That being said, we had a lovely evening here. The service was very good, the specials different & many, were tough to choose from, but all 4 of us loved... More

We were 3 couples enjoying a Valentine's Day dinner together. I was so appreciative to Christy's for accommodating our party since we had just made the reservation the day before. I was reluctant to eat out on this holiday because of the crowds, but we were all pleasantly surprised at how great it was. Food was delicious, and plentiful. Our... More

The atmosphere was very nice but the food, which had been highly recommended, was just mediocre. The $60 4-course dinner had nice variety but was not worth the money. I had a stuffed lobster tail and Caesar salad that I didn't like at all. The shrimp cocktail was boring. The filet mignon looked like the best bet.

Everything they serve is great. Whether we go by ourselves or with friends, we all have a great time and leave full and happy that we went there.

The food was good. All four of us agreed on that point. Service was friendly, but sketchy. The best example is that we ordered a shared hot antipasto while we looked over the menu and then we waited, and waited but nothing happened. Finally, the waiter came for our entree orders and told us the appitizer course is not served... More

The food is pricey and tasteless. Do not be sidetracked by the BYOB. The food was tasteless and portions while not bad had no flavor so who cares if the portions were larger. The fish was mushy and covered in either a sauce or bread crumbs. This is one place I will not go back to. While the service was... More
