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

Decided to have my traditional Christmas Dinner with a few of my best friends at Christner's my absolute favorite steak house in the Orlando area. Formerly known as Del Frisco's this is among the top three steakhouse of all Central Florida. The place doesn't look like much from the outside and the inside has this Old School classy vibe like...

I have been fortunate because of business to visit the greatest steakhouses in America and let's face it, we own that category, so we got the world covered. I've read and eaten at ALL the airline magazine lists and enjoy some of the chain's quiet cousins like Sullivan's and Eddie V's. Christner's is in a world of its own. The... More

Had dinner at Christner's again. As always, amazing melt in your mouth bread, great steak and we tried chicken and sausage soup, yum! The orange cake always tops the meal off stuffed or not.

The Christmas party was fun with good food . The steak came over cooked and warm not hot . It was disappointing because the meat had a delicious flavor . Although the servers were attentive at times , it was inconsistent and the food came in waves with delays. The appetizers were the best part of the meal . The... More

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

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.
