Christner’s Prime Steak and Lobster is one of Orlando’s oldest steakhouses. This jewel, which was previously Del Frisco’s, sits on the north end of Orlando right off of the I-4 exit! Jason had the opportunity to try some of the food at Christner’s. After learning some of the history of how Del Frisco’s came to be in Orlando. Recently after some discussion, this classic restaurant changed their name to Christner’s Prime Steak and Lobster. I was reassured that the same food, sauces, seasoning, and cuts of meat were the same from the Del Frisco’s name to the now Christner’s.
We started out out with the fried calamari. The squid was fresh and had a great flavor to it! The batter was full of seasoning and was cooked wonderfully. The star of the appetizer was the sauce, which matched quite nicely with the squid! I could not get enough of this appetizer.
For a main dish I had filet trio. The three medallion filets’ had both a peppercorn gravy and a Béarnaise sauce. The filet was cooked to perfection and came paired with a huge pile of chateau potatoes. The sauces were great and paired with the meat well.
For dessert, we had an orange cream cake. The large piece of cake was moist, full of flavor! The orange was not overpowering and was quite pleasant! I loved this cake, and would come back just for the dessert!
Overall this place is a great steakhouse, with a lot of history. Being one of Orlando’s oldest steakhouses. If you are looking for a steakhouse rich in history, good food, and away from all the people of the theme parks then Christner’s Prime Steakhouse and Lobster are for you!
