ORLANDO, Fla. – An Orlando steakhouse is marking 28 years of serving fine meats and seafood by raising money to support mental health care in Central Florida.

Christner’s Prime Steak & Lobster at 729 Lee Road is hosting a fundraising dinner on June 11 to celebrate its many years in business. The restaurant has only gone by Christner’s since 2013, but the same family has owned and operated the business since 1993, according to its website.
