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

It has been there a long time but the steaks and service are still first rate and compared to Del Frisco's (which it used to be) the prices are a steal

Great food and service! A bit pricey but a great experience. Not overly friendly staff but our server Victor made up for it. He was very attentive!

Christner's Prime Steak & Lobster is not restaurant, it is an experience.  The experience was astonishing from the moment we walked into the steakhouse, to the moment we left. We were impressed before we received the menus. The decour, customer service, and wine list was...More

These steaks are just fabulous. The restaurant has a bit of age on it (as many of us do) but maybe that is why everything about it is first class. The New York strips and lobsters were perfect. The wait staff knew exactly how to...More

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.
