First visit to Christner's. The excellent reviews that I read before making reservations were spot on. Great food, atmosphere and service. Our server, Alec, was top notch.

We just visited Christners for Valentine's Day. The meal and service was excellent. The wait staff is very attentive and strives to meet your every need. We tried three appetizers (because several come as half orders). The calamari, fried oysters, and Ahi tuna were all wonderful, although next time I would order full orders of the Fried Oysters and Ahi... More

This Former Del Frisco's was & still is, the BEST RESTAURANT IN ORLANDO!! I have tried ALL of their competitors & they are still the best! They were a Del Frisco's franchise for 20 years & have ALL the same food but better since it's not a chain!

This is the absolute best steak and lobster restaurant in town. Nothing comes close. This was the original Del Friscos in Orlando until they opened a new one on international drive. This one is much much better. This is the best place hands down! The crab cakes are amazing to start off your meal. The wine selection is great also... More

While attending a Convention in Orlando, we were looking for a steakhouse to entertain a few clients. Fortunately we found Christner's. The food was fine quality, the service was quite good. There are several rooms and it's fairly large but has that good steakhouse feel. Steaks were cooked correctly to our requests

My wife and I went here for a date night in a Saturday. We made reservations and were seated right away when we arrived. The inside is a little old feeling. We ordered 2 steaks and 2 sides and a lobster tail. The lobster tail was EXTREMELY expensive. It was 16oz and it was over $107 dollars. As far as... More

You go for the steak and you will not be disappointed. Had a great fillet, another member of our party had the strip steak and said it was great. The lobster was also excellent. Didn't care to much for the lobster mac and cheese it was over cooked and not worth the cost or calories. The orange cake that everyone... More

I loved everything. The salad with blue cheese crumbles was average. The steaks & filet were perfect!! The Australian lobster was the best I ever had and I have had lots of fine lobsters. The side of broccoli was amazing!! The lobster mac & cheese I didn't care for as I prefer my pasta dishes less mushy but others liked... More

My Wife and I went for our 27th Wedding Anniversary on December 23rd. Upon arrival we casually asked if there was a private dining room seeing it was our special day. The hostess directed us to a romantically darkened room perfect for the occasion. Our waiter Jamie was more than accommodating, and suggested what turned out to be an extremely... More

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.
