One of the best places for seafood! – My husband and I have been coming here with family many a time, and here just recently for our anniversary. We love this place! We have never encountered a bad experience be it food, or service. Everything is consistently great! I usually get the half fried catfish, and half fried shrimp. Delicious! I love the homeade tartar sauce, as well as the homeade ranch dressing on your dinner salad! My husband really loves their seafood platters. If you're more a fan of steaks, try theirs...it's not disappointing at all! To round off a great meal, have a slice of carrot cake, or if you are like me, share a slice!
lousy atmosphere, subpar food, inexperienced waiter – I've lived in Houston for a few years now and drove by this place more than a hundred times. No one I know has ever eaten there, so one night I decided to stop by. It was a Thursday evening, a fairly slow night. As soon as my boyfriend and I walked in, I wanted to leave. The atmosphere was dull, old, boring, the place was quiet, and the whole restaurant smelled old, moldy and stale. The lighting in the dining room was dim, but not at all romantic. The few other tables that were occupied were mostly older people, seniors. Our waiter was a young kid who appeared to have never waited tables before. He was shy, nervous and uncertain in his answers about the menu. We decided to stay nonetheless: give this place a chance, it's been in business for so long, there's gotta be something good about it, I thought. Not so. When the food came out, I was disappointed. I couldn've gotten the same fried catfish and mash potatoes at Lubby's. It just all tasted like school cafeteria food. From then on, everytime I drive by and see cars parked outside this restaurant, I'm amazed how this dive still attracts customers: must be unknowing newcomers like myself.
Our Favorite Restaurant – Just returned from dinner there and had to write....I got engaged here, had my rehearsal dinner here and every anniversary since. For the past 8 years! I feel like Christie's is a part of my life and it is more than a restaurant to me, it is comfort. I love the fried shrimp, of course, but everything is good. And the staff tries so hard to make everyone comfortable and happy. I am one happy loyal customer that recommends Christie's to all. Just don't all rush at the same time, I don't like waiting too long for a table! :)
not baby friendly – went to eat 6-15 at 4:00pm. took our 10 week old baby after checking website to make sure was kid friendly. well of course the baby started screaming. there was only 3 other couples in the place. the "manager" basically asked us to leave. my husband kept walking the baby around trying to settle him down. i was trying to get the waiter to get the bill. "manager" told him baby liked it better outside. it was a bad experience that i will not repeat.
So Goooood! – Went for dinner with my family and couldn't beleive the portions or the taste! I had the ribeye with fried shrimp and took half home because it was too much. Had a crawfish bisque and it was velvet, never tasted anything so smooth. My brother had the stuffed snapper and it was so fresh he said better than anything he's had anywhere. Love this place! the remolaude sauce is unbelievable- they should sell that in stores! We'll be back soon!
Editorial Review – Family-owned Houston staple for fried shrimp and fresh seafood since 1917.
Disappointed... – I was disappointed by my recent dining experience there. The service was very slow. The waitress was not very attentive - I ordered a raspberry margarita and received one with no identifiable fruit flavor; my friend did not get the cheesecake she ordered. The flavor of the food was unimpressive and not worth the price? I will not be coming back there?
Very Disappointed – My friends and I were so excited to try Christie's out. There were ten of us in our group and it was not a busy night. Half of the people in my partie's food was cold. The steak was not impressive at all. It was really thin and cold. I have had much better steak at Outback for half the cost. The fried shrimp was good but I think it is way overrated. In the end, we felt that our money did not match the quality of the food we recieved.
Fill me up – I eat out almost 6 times a week with my job and I love coming to Christie's because it just feels like home. A family run restaurant that is not too common anymore. I love to get their sauteed crabmeat and big baked potato and a salad with their own ranch dressing. The service is so friendly and there is this girl,I think her name is Maria,has the best smile. Really makes every customer feel special. The Blackberry margaritas are perfect after work! Christie's is perfect.
Yummy Yummy Yummy – The service-So great i didnt like one thing i ordered and the waitress changed my order and did not charge me for the order i did not eat.
The food-Awesome, fresh, I just didnt have a taste for the first thing i ordered, their po-boys are just delightful, delightful
The Drinks-Ahhh the best margaritas ever, try the melon its to die for
