Was looking forward to trying this long standing restaurant. So disappointed in everything. Only acceptable item we had was the marinara that accompanied the onion rings and the bread. Baked potato hard, augratin potatoes tasted like chemicles, trout was over cooked and flavorless Overpriced and the waitress was borderline rude and inattentive. Will not return.

Josh and I went here for his birthday, we participated in the Houston Restaurant Week for the 3 course meal for $35 per person. We both started with the Gumbo, it was delicious, they had my favorite crackers, the toll house butter crackers. He opted for the Seafood Platter with the stuffed crab (not a fan of), fried catfish and fried shrimp with a side of fries and I got the 6 oz steak with the shrimp on a bed of rice. Everything tasted very good and I even had some to take home to our Cairo. We both got the key lime pie for dessert, it was amazing, the whipped cream was just right and the crust was just yummy. Overall, we spent about $82, we were very happy with the food and service, would definitely come back for a special occasion!

We had heard about Christie's and wanted to try them. I like lemon drop martinis but found theirs to be very bitter, our meals were ordered off the HRW menu and the fried seafood was very good but my husband said his beef tips tasted old and were tough. He didn't enjoy his meal. The service was a bit slow. On a positive note if you like fried seafood you would enjoy it. The building has a older style to it and adds to its history. Every restaurant has its charms and Christie's is no different and we highly respect the restaurants that participate in Houston's Restaurant week they are amoung the best Houston had to offer. Give them a try and see if they are for you.

We had a family luncheon for my mother’s 90th birthday. The restaurant accommodates the needs of elder diners nicely as well as members of our party with food sensitivities that have dined there regularly which made this a perfect choice. We all chose seafood meals and were completely satisfied. My only disappointment was that our servers were not as attentive to us and to detail as I would have expected for a group like ours.

One hundred years and still going. Not exceptional food but always OK. Pricing a little high for quality of food though. Never a great meal but never a bad meal. Prefer dishes that are not deep fried as the fried dishes are a little greasy. Try a blackened dish instead.

The absolute best fried shrimp 🦐 in town!!! Go for a dozen ... you will be so happy. This is the reason why it has been around for years. Luv the old style because the place is spotless you feel trendy not dated. Also Greek salad is worthy to mention.
The 3rd generation is keeping true to the quality. Keep up the good work.

Our family has been coming to Christie's for years. Our step-father loved this restaurant and we've continued going there since he passed away 20 years ago. We celebrated our mother's 85th birthday there (party of 20+) and hope to be there again for her 90th. The patrons are on the elderly side and we usually see a lot of extended families there. I had the snapper prepared Greek style (the owners are Greek), Mother had fried oysters and my sister had the Calamari salad. Delicious!

Yes it has been around for over 100 years and the reason ... Best Fried Shrimp in Houston. Get a dozen.... they are that good that others at your table will try one or two. Greek salad is also a must.
The service is attentive & the restaurant is quiet so you can enjoy a conversation with your friends.
Consistency is good & so is the fried 🦐

The seafood is consistently good. Most preparations are based on Gulf Coast or Cajun recipes. The cocktail sauce is disappointingly bland. The salad dressings taste very institutional. This restaurant has been around for many years and the decor is outdated, but you can get a table on a weekend evening without a reservation and have a conversation during dinner without having to shout. Prices are 50% less than at most of the more trendy seafood restaurants.

Unfortunately no one in our party enjoyed their food. Our beginning of the evening started off with great service but then went downhill quickly as it was almost like someone didn't show up for work. We asked that our mother was treated special for her 75th birthday and when it was time for the b/d song/dessert she was brought a scoop of ice cream. I would have rather ordered a slice of cake or something more special but we were never even asked what we wanted to do for that portion of the meal. We will not be back. The food felt "frozen" and not fresh at all. Very disappointing.
