Checked out their menu online and found a great selection and reasonable prices. It is small and crowded with tables making navigation a bit difficult for those with trouble getting around. Food was excellent. I had chicken and noodles - large chunks of chicken and real mashed potatoes. My spouse had the crabcake poor-boy and the remoulaude (?) alone made... More

Had lunch at Christopher's and was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is located in a small strip mall, but as soon as you enter the experience begins. Food was outstanding as was the wait staff and menu selection. Great place for a quick bite or a romantic dinner.

A small, clean, welcoming restaurant with excellent meals and personable wait staff, Christopher's relies solely on word-of-mouth advertising and is a local favorite, nearly flying under the radar. It is just the kind of place that many people long to find, but seldom do. It is not a fancy place, but it is comfy in a way that makes you... More

I normally eat breakfast at Bob Evans or crackerbarrel when in the area but this time tried something new. We had a family breakfast that included two small children. They put us in the back room where we were not as crowded. The food was great for a change of pace especially the eggs benedict and bacon which actually came... More

My companion arrived and were seated right away. Our waitress was prompt and very attentive to our needs. My Companion ordered the Beef Stew. I sampled it and it was very good. I had a Chef Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing. The restaurant was very clean and very busy. One thing that impressed me above all else. The hostess noticed... More

´Tis a grand day. We should be hitting the slopes at Mad River Mountain; however, a mid-day eye checkup prevents skiing today. Christopher’s is our objective; perhaps two miles east of the many restaurants of the Greene. At 11:40AM, the parking lot is full, and the two dining rooms are full. Christopher’s is not a hidden Gem; we locals have... More

I'd heard about Christopher's for years, finally had a chance to try it. First thing I noticed was how crowded it was, clearly it's a popular place. I also noticed how small it was as were squeezed into our table between the other diners. Not a place to eat if claustrophobic and/or antisocial. Service was slow, with our server seeming... More

Went for lunch with a friend we both had the salmon dinner it was two small pieces however it was cooked to perfection and had a great buttery taste. It came with a salad and vegetable or potato. We had salad with ranch and sweet potato fries everything was wonderful.

OK, they call it Pot Roast Stew - it is still beef stew. Tasted great and good balance of meat and vegetables, not too skimpy on the beef. Comes with two fresh biscuits and salad and bread basket. The bread basket is good quality stuff but leave room. The house salad is fine with mediterranean balsamic dressing. Tried the tomato... More

I had the beef Manhattan. The beef can be cut with a butter knife. The gravy is slightly spicy but we'll flavored. The mashed potato are thick. And lemonade is hand squeezed. I love eating here. My husband loves the bumbleberry pie.
