Steak
The Christner family invites you to join them at Orlando's favorite steakhouse. 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.

Ask for quiet romantic table was, placed next to a party of 10...
Could barely hear each other talk... food was excellent Ambience disappointing after spending 350 on a meal.. for that price tag you would think that they would be a little bit more accommodating to an easy request to fill.. I guess it's my fault I should have asked for a different table..

Christner's is incredible on all levels! The filet is superb, the crab cake is incredibly fresh and full of flavor and the lobster mac/cheese is to die for. Rudy, our server was attentive and very well trained and would recommend him in a heart beat.

I have worked the area this establishment is in and have been told how great the food is. Since Christners has a great ratings from friends who have dined there, I decided to bring my wife there for our 4th wedding anniversary. Upon arrival, we were met by a professional and friendly Hostess who quickly sat us in the lounge area. Our waiter Matt treated us with the utmost respect, and was very helpful when it came to assisting us with the menu. We ordered the Shrimp Cocktail along with the 20 oz Steak for 2 along with the baked potato. The food was the best we have ever had, and way exceeded our expectations. The price was affordable, therefore we will go back, and I would highly recommend Christners to all who are looking for a classy place with the best steak in town.

The food was wonderful and the service was impeccable. Steaks are cooked as ordered and so tender and flavorful. The usual steakhouse where everything is extra but most side dishes are enough for two. The spinach was delicious.

My all time favorite restaurant! The steak is like butter,forget a knife; don't need one. Delish! The sides are to die for especially their Lobster Mac n cheese. Wait, there's dessert! the signature orange cake it's like a 16 ounce piece of cake, HUGE! and so wonderful it melts in your mouth. You'll be so happy you took the leftovers home.

Made reservations for a birthday celebration for two. Got there on time and had a nice booth reserved for in a quiet part of the restaurant. Steaks were very good. The Birthday girl wanted French fries with her steak and they were not on the menu. No problem...made a nice side of natural cut French fries...free desert was huge and excellent! Owner came around to make sure everything was to our satisfaction,

Nice evening out for our Anniversary. Stacy was a wonderful server. Started a little loud with a large party in separate room for a birthday party. After they left it was much quieter. We enjoyed our quieter dinner for our anniversary. And thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary dessert. Food was large portions and very flavorful. Nice privately owned steak and seafood place.

We have been here before and had enjoyed it but won’t go back. The value for the money simply isn’t there. Our steak was not cooked properly (wanted medium and it came out raw) and it was mostly grizzle!. We sent it back to have it cooked more and it came back incorrectly the second time too. The icing on the cake was when our server mentioned lobster tails were on special and came in any size from small to large. We ordered a small one and were aghast when the bill came and the small lobster tail was $80!?!? Felt like a total rip-off and not worth it.

Always one of my favorite places for celebrations. Took out of town family to eat at Christner's this week. The waiter was excellent is his descriptions of the food and answering questions. Family was impressed with the food, especially the tenderness of the steak. They drove from the International Drive area for this meal and said it was well worth the drive. I ordered the Orange cake to take home and it was wonderful, not too sweet, but rich. In all, a great experience.

Another superb meal...Christner's is fast becoming the place we always wish we had gone to when we're dining somewhere else. Best steaks in Orlando, lovelovelove the piano, and the wine list is chock full of awesome selections. Thumbs up for the fried oysters, which my wife always likes to order to top her Caesar salad. Highly recommend the bone-in ribeye, as the leftovers make for decadent steak & eggs next morning. Service is old-school impeccable. One member of our party has a plethora of food allergies, and Brian was able to accommodate a raft of special requests for us.

We had dinner two weeks ago and came back for another helping. Christner’s does not disappoint. We asked for Luigi again and he remembered us. What a great waiter! The steaks were outstanding once again. The broccoli au gratin was excellent. O rings perfect. Could not pass up the chocolate cake. Wow, what a meal. What more can I say, but that we’ll be back in a couple weeks.

We arrived at 6 pm to enjoy our 39th anniversary and were seated in a very busy traffic area that greatly detracted from our special night. We dine out often and understand the restaurant business very well however this was not your restaurant's best moment. Service was not personable, was hurried and the server simply forgot several requests. We were not made to feel very welcome or special and, for the price we paid for dinner, we departed with the impression that we would not return again. As we left, we encountered complete chaos at the valet station which reinforced our decision to try another steakhouse next time. Am sure that you know how to run a fine restaurant but we did not get your best.

Christner's is rapidly becoming a regular weekend spot for us. The cocktails (thanks to bartender Alessia), food, service, and live piano entertainment are all top-notch. No other local steak restaurant comes close, and nowhere else offers the consistency we've come to expect from Christner's!

Christner's is always a fantastic place for a great steak, and lobster dinner. The meats, tails, and sides are all shareable and delicious to offer a variety of options. The staff have all been there for a long time, and the service is exceptional. Dress up! It's not required, but it's a great place to dress up and out to.
