Went for lunch with a friend we both had the salmon dinner it was two small pieces however it was cooked to perfection and had a great buttery taste. It came with a salad and vegetable or potato. We had salad with ranch and sweet potato fries everything was wonderful.

OK, they call it Pot Roast Stew - it is still beef stew. Tasted great and good balance of meat and vegetables, not too skimpy on the beef. Comes with two fresh biscuits and salad and bread basket. The bread basket is good quality stuff but leave room. The house salad is fine with mediterranean balsamic dressing. Tried the tomato... More

I had the beef Manhattan. The beef can be cut with a butter knife. The gravy is slightly spicy but we'll flavored. The mashed potato are thick. And lemonade is hand squeezed. I love eating here. My husband loves the bumbleberry pie.

Good service. Like the vegetarian options even tho' I'm not a vegetarian. Enjoy the homemade foods. We even like the mis-matched chairs. There are booths for those who want them. I The environment is casual and friendly.

The food for breakfast or lunch is ok but not spectacular. Service is good and prices are good. You won't be disappointed but don't expect an exceptional experience

Christopher's has been on our list of favorite restaurants for years! The stroganoff is outstanding, the house dressing is delectable, and both the bread pudding and carrot cake are to-die-for!! You want truly hand-crafted, local food? Make sure you give Christopher's a try!!

This is where I go when I'm craving something hot and homemade. I usually get the pot roast or chicken and noodles, which are both served over mashed potatoes. The veggie burgers are wonderful too. When I don't want something so heavy I get the chicken salad sandwich with the red potato salad. Everything is made from scratch and the... More

What a great place to have lunch OR dinner. I've personally used Christopher's for catering as well as lunch w/ friends and am never disappointed. Excellent food with pleasant service in a very relaxed, family oriented environment.

A lovely place to go with selections for all dietary preferances, including vegan and gluten free. Friendly and professional staff and daily/weekly chefs specials that won't break the budget.

The sandwich I had was lukewarm (was supposed to be cold). The chips were stale. I was in a group of 8 friends and half of the group waited about 10 more minutes to get their food. So we ate at separate times from each other. Never again.

Thank Lori H
