    I made reservations for my daughter’s 41st birthday. We were seated as a table of six between two tables of 12. Both were very loud and very understandable. They could have seated us in a less Loud area. Very upset we could not even hear each other talk. This is my daughter’s favorite spot. We have eaten here for her birthday more than a dozen times. Very upset there was not more thought as to where to put a table instead of between two parties of 12. What could they expect. Not happy. This was her special night out and we could hardly speak to each other. Good and service was excellent

    Fantastic as usual! I’ve been going to this restaurant for 20 years and every time it’s excellent. It’s expensive, yes, but you get what you pay for. The Ahi Tuna is the best I’ve ever had from anywhere, and I’ve tried a lot of places. Really, everything is amazing. Highly recommend!

    Great food and experience! We were seated right next to the piano and it was beautiful. The servers make it into a whole experience for you and tell you exactly how things are! We were advised to get half orders and were even able to split a steak and sides. I can’t eat a lot so this was perfect! We will definitely be back!

    An absolute gem! I went here based on the reviews and Christner’s did not disappoint. This is one of the best steakhouses I have ever been to. I went here on a date with my wife, she ordered the filet and I ordered the ribeye. They came out at a perfect medium and they were perfectly seasoned without the need of additional sauce on top like some steakhouses do. We had a perfectly paired Cabernet at our server’s suggestion. We also ordered the calamari which came Shanghai style, so it had the right amount of kick to it. For sides, we ordered sautéed mushrooms and potatoes au gratin, both of which were delicious. For dessert, my wife and I ordered the southern bread pudding and praline parfait. The food quality here was amazing, the environment was inviting, and the wait staff was very attentive. We cannot wait for the next time we come here.

    always wonderful service and must say my bone in prime rib cooked to perfection...and onion rings so delicious...side of asparagus just OK and not cooked through so was chewy but didn't bother advising our server...i did return the wedge salad as it didn't even look appetizing...just full of dressing with slivers of bacon as i thought it would come out with some dressing and fresh blue cheese chunks and maybe a few tomaotes but now i know for the future...extremely loud and rude group of men next to us and i don't mind loud groups but they were vulgar w cursing and talking about women...overall ok experience this time

    From start to finish, everything was amazing. Jeremy was the main person to take care of us during our dining experience but every single person who stopped by our table was such a pleasure. The grouper appetizer was beyond delicious and extremely fresh. We also had the bone in ribeye, which was cooked to perfection along with the lobster mac and cheese, potatoes, and mushrooms with onions. By far over exceeded our expectations and we can’t wait to return.

    We thoroughly enjoy Christeners! We live in Melbourne, and it is our go to restaurant for anniversaries, birthdays, and when anyone is visiting from out of town. Some of our favorite dishes are the calamari, the onion rings, the cream, spinach, and the cream corn. Of course, all the entrées are to die for! We’ve been there many many times and have never been disappointed! Dave and Alice are the best!

    My wife and I enjoyed another fantastic meal with excellent customer service. The only negative comment we have is related to the noise level. This was the second time we dealt with excessive noise. It’s a product of serving alcohol and the sound level with people just gets louder and louder. We couldn’t really hear each other while talking. In the future I am going to ask for a private table as I observed there were quieter places in the restaurant when we were leaving. We enjoyed our anniversary meal and will return again.
