When I say that this place is out the way, its not really all that far out of the way, but for those who are in Orlando, its not in the center of the action either, and for me that is a really good thing. The restaurant itself is old school, which all by itself appeals to me, but then... More

This is somewhat of a homestead restaurant for the upscale Park Avenue people in Orlando. Interior decoration is of very high quality with dark wooden panels and all burgundy leather seats. Sometime you have the feeling that there are more staff serving than guests. Our waiter gave no peace for quiet eating. But guests come and go in a steady... More

That said, after 30 years of marriage, my husband NEVER surprised me by making Anniversary plans and thought he was crazy making this one! I asked him did you look at reviews? He said "yes". I thought he was just trying to just not have to explain. So how do I dress? "Get dressed up", he said, so I did...... More

My husband and I had an excellent dinner here. Wonderful anniversary celebration. The food here was excellent and the service was on point. Everything was good. I can't believe I've never been there before. When we come to Orlando, it's on the top of our list. Yum! :)

First off, the location stinks. It’s in a shady area just off I-4 in an old, run-down plaza. Food quality was average, and definitely not worth the high prices. Service was decent but they got my order wrong and the server seemed angry, as if it was my fault. The night we were there they had a local magician doing... More

Once you walk in you are immediately greeted with kindness and comfort. The service here is absolutely amazing. There is a live singer here who is big on Frank Sinatra but is also very flexible. Im not big on old school music but this guy can sing. He is also very kind and he likes to interact with the crowd... More

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

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.
