Christner’s Prime Steak & Lobster has consistently been  one of Orlando’s best steakhouses. Its also one of Orlando's longest standing, having been in business for over twenty years under the former Del Frisco's name. 

What makes this fine dining experience even better, is that it is fashioned after a traditional old world Chicago style saloon. The inside of Christner's is all dark wood and brick with plush leather seating and white table cloths.

Over the years, Carole, David and Alice Christner have built a restaurant that continues to provide meticulous service in an atmosphere that is intimate and relaxed. 

That meticulous service means a lot to to the team at Christner's as well. Most of the staff has been with them for a long time, as our server had been there for over nine years. That's an important factor in fine dining. Often times even at good restaurants, service can feel hurried or you may feel rushed to eat. You can be sure your meal will be spaced out and you will be given time to enjoy each and every aspect of your meal. 

On the other hand, if you are in a hurry and you have a show to catch, your server will be more than willing to accommodate you as well. 


All meals are served with complimentary fresh baked bread rolls with a side of real butter. 

These are great steakhouse style rolls, that are firm and fluffy, but manage to dissolve like a hot donut in your mouth.


My guest and I split a Dinner Salad. The salad portion is big enough to split and have more than enough for two salads.




The Fried "Shanghai Style" Calamari was top notch. This was a perfectly cooked calamari that uses only the rings of the squid and was some of the most tender calamari I have had.

The Shanghai Sauce it was tossed in added the right mixture of heat and sweet.
I could have gotten full just eating the plate of calamari. 



All of Christner's steaks come from corn-fed stock, are prime-aged and are cut fresh to order.

My guest had the Filet Mignon. The steak was cooked to a perfect medium and had great flavor in every bite.

I ordered the Prime Strip. This was a succulent melt in your mouth steak that was also cooked to perfection. I enjoyed each and every bite.

We spilt an order of the Chateau Potatoes and and an order of the Broccoli Au Gratin for our sides. All sides are ordered as a la carte, but come in shareable portions. 


The Mandarin Orange Cake...
is a three layer moist orange cake which has  frosting that's almost as thick as the cake itself.  It is served with a scoop of ice cream and a side of orange sauce. This is one of the restaurant's most popular deserts. 

This slice is equivalent to about 2 regular slices of cake. So, you can imagine that with the bread, calamari, steaks, sides and cake….we had plenty left to take home.



Great Steaks deserve great wine, and Christner's has a wine portfolio of more than 5,500 wines. If that's not enough for you, you can lease your own wine locker and bring your own wine and spirits for safe keeping in a temperature controlled environment. 



Put simply…Christner's is a Great Steak House. Steak is what they do. Sure they do a lot of things really well here, but you will be hard pressed to find someone that does it better in Central Florida. 

Valentine's Day would be a wonderful time to try out this intimate restaurant. They currently have a special which includes:  a four-course dinner for two, with a bottle of champagne or wine paired with classic cuisine ranging from salads to filet mignon for $200, tax and gratuity included. An upgrade to shrimp and lobster is available for an additional $50. Call for reservations.


Christner's dedication is never ending and they strive for excellence at every turn. It's fancy, but not over the top. You will remember the experience if you dine there, not just for the steak but for the level of service as well!
