As reported in Scott Joseph’s Orlando Restaurant Guide, Del Frisco’s on Lee Road has now officially become Christner’s Del Frisco’s Prime Steak & Lobster, which was founded in 1993 and is one of Orlando’s oldest steakhouses. The local, family owned and operated restaurant is the legacy of founders Russ and Carole Christner. Carole Christner and her son David carry on the family business, transitioning the Del Frisco’s Prime Steak & Lobster brand to embrace its namesake – a brand built on its reputation of good food, great service and a welcoming atmosphere.
A fine dining experience, Christner’s offers U.S.D.A. Choice Plus Filet Mignon (8oz. $39 / 12 oz. $46), U.S.D.A. Prime Strip (16 oz. /$45), U.S.D.A. Prime Ribeye (16 oz. $42 / 22oz. bone-in $51) and U.S.D.A. Prime Porterhouse (24 oz. $53) that is aged, corn-fed and cut fresh-to-order. Cold water lobster tails are imported from Australia and the restaurant boasts a wine portfolio of more than 5,500 bottles.
The restaurant is open for dinner, Monday through Thursday from 5:00 to 10:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday until 11:00 p.m. For more information visit www.christnersprimesteakandlobster.com or call 407.645.4443.
The restaurant is slated to transition to just Christner’s Prime Steak & Lobster, dropping the Del Frisco’s name entirely, at the end of the second quarter in 2013.
