This is a very friendly establishment. Like any amazing steakhouse it is also pricey, but worth what you pay if a mouth watering steak is what you desire. Also the lobster bisque was delicious!

This steak house has been there a long time. It was formerly a Del Frisco but lost the franchise. The owner's kept up the fine standards and great steaks and service and it is still a delight to visit. Great wine list reasonably priced

Our favorite restaurant in the Orlando area. Service at the lounge is excellent. Food is superb and excellently prepared to order. Love the ahi tuna app and the Carole's Filet and Russ' Prime Strip were prepared to our expectations and absolutely delicious.

This place was amazing. I went for my husband birthday and a toddler and they placed us in a private room for about 4 with a TV. We put cartoons for my daughter and we have a amazing dinner. Food is amazing. Service is amazing. They never forgot about us in that room. We got a free birthday slice of... More

Cannot even describe how incredible this meal was and the service was exquisite. Mr. Christner himself was there to check in frequently and we were amazed by every course. The lobster is out of this world! Perfect steaks. Amazing calamari, crab cakes, shrimp, and oysters. Oh, and the desserts! Our server, Ryan, was exceptional. My mom had a wonderful birthday... More

Maybe it's because we are from South Florida and are used to fresh seafood and great steak but, we have had equally good or better food for half the price. We were headed on an anniversary trip and stopped in town for one night. My husband surprised me with dinner here based on such great reviews and the website boasting... More

I cannot stress the fact enough that this is THE best Steakhouse for me - and I have been in many over the years travelling in the US. I have not been to Peter Luger in Brooklynn yet but apparently Christner´s and Luger are playing both in the same Champions League of Steak. Outstanding Service (the waiter recognized us from...

The Del Frisco name may be a memory, but the reason Dale let Russ open this iconic steak house lives on with the Christner family. I don't know how they make their steaks better than all the guys you know, but they do. The also have better lobster, shrimp and crab cakes than any of those fancy chains. If you... More

Christner's formerly Del Frisco's remains the gold standard for steak houses in Orlando. The superb waiter, Victor who has been there for over 20 years,the wedge,the onion rings and the succulent prime NY strip with gateau potatoes and top that with a great wine list- steak house heaven!!

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.
