Reviewed September 11, 2012

I love the laid back feel at Christophers but still being capable of having amazing food! The flavor, taste, and excellence without the pretension. Always great to watch a game here as well!!

“great food in this DSM icon”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

It was good when Zabel first came in and is still good now. You can't go wrong here as the food never disappoints. A Beaverdale icon, but sometimes hard to get in on a Fri-Sat. night.

“Great Neighborhood Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

We dined with friends at this fine restaurant recently. The decor is original "retro". Nice bar area and dining areas - cozy feeling, very comfortable, and quiet. The menu has a good variety and the food was very good. The only down side was our server, who was more taken with himself than with us. He was slow and inattentive in his service. We will go back again because the positives outweigh the one negative.

“Been around forever.”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

Even so, their food quality is very good. They are pricey. Two cannot dine for under $35.
