We went for a celebratory dinner. The personalized service and good food did not disappoint. Apparently, the neighborhood has gone "downhill" in the almost 30 years they have been open, but they provide valet parking and have a police officer on-site in the evenings. We...More

We originally had Charlie's Steakhouse in mind but this was highly recommended from a local family member. Bad decision. For starters this was located in what was obviously a depressed section of Orlando, well the restaurant was established in the early 90s the decor was...More

You can certainly skip it but his magic is all card tricks and he is VERY personable. Would interrupt your dinner by like 3 minutes, worth the diversion IMHO

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.
