    This is a great old school steakhouse with servers in ties and vests. Wine prices are very reasonable with prices from $10 per glass. Steaks are awesome. Sides are delicious. Was glad to see the restaurant was packed.

    This is still our favorite restaurant in Florida. If you want the perfect steak, this is the place. We tried the shrimp remolaude appetizer for the first time. It was so good. My favorite is the bone in ribeye prepared Pittsburgh blackened medium rare. My wife raves about the mandarin orange cake.

    I have enjoyed Christners many times and last night was simply a bad visit. The waiter was terrible. He could not hear, her seemed aggregated when asked to do something and took over 1 hour to get our food. Forgot appetizers and desserts even came out at all different times.

    Our dinner was absolutely delicious and we all were extremely satisfied. The only issue we had was our waitress seemed a bit out of sort. It could be she was having a bad day, but we have been to Christner's quite a few time and have recommended it to friends and never had an issue with any of the servers.

    Longtime customer, but the last few times we have been to Christener’s, we have left feeling very disappointed, The steak is awesome, but service has been horrible. This last time, our server told us they had over 500 people for reservations that night. I suppose that was an excuse for his poor service( Our order was wrong, we weren’t asked if we wanted refills on our bar drinks, we weren’t served our sides, they were just dropped at our table. It was as if we were bothering our server by being there. Left a really bad taste in my mouth. Won’t rush back. So sad.

    We consider going here for dinner a real treat! Our 1st time was 2 years ago. This visit was very uncomfortable for me as the temperature of the room was absolutely freezing and my food cooled down immediately. Be prepared and bring a warm coat or sweater. It really made for an uncomfortable evening. The food and service however was excellent.

    The food and service were impeccable, everything we were looking for. Unfortunately a couple tables away there was a group that had obviously over indulged in the wine and were loud and obnoxious using vulgar language, dropping F-bombs. Really took away from our special occasion dinner.

    There were six middle aged men in a table next to us all speaking on top of each other very loud and using the "f" work repeatedly. The server and manager should have addressed this immediately because apparently other complained as well. I really don't want to enjoy a birthday dinner listening to how someone's wives won't have sex with them.

    This is an old style restaurant that seems to cater to the elderly. At the price point, food must be flavorful and the menu should reflect quality dishes. This place is an old school steakhouse, and the menu reflects that. The service is excellent and the staff is very attentive. However, for the price of your meal, you can have a better dining experience at a more contemporary restaurant.

    The food was very good. The lobster macaroni and cheese was creamy and filled with lobster baked in, not just sitting on top. The salmon was a nice portion and very tasty. The cheese board was excellent! The server was attentive but not fawning. I would definitely recommend.
