If you enjoy the Best Fried Shrimp in Houston & beyond.... order a dozen for dinner here!! Salad is crisp & fresh... baked potato is hot, soft & fluffy! 2 cooked perfect onion rings .... But that is not the star of the meal. Those dozen fried shrimp are delicious....
also try the Greek salad.
I am sure that there are other items that are delightful... but we don’t know ... because the fried shrimp is amazing here.
Treat your self to a wonderful... quiet... greAt service .... table cloth & napkins meal.

Our second time at Christie's solidified our resolution to visit more often. Delicious, gulf-fresh food - you can taste the difference as compared to other places. Waitstaff friendly and attentive. The decor is a little out of date, but we don't care. Delish food and friendliness trumps decor any day!

Service terrible, we waited 40 minutes over our appointment time. Then when we were seated they brought 3 people food to them that they seated after us. Then our food still wasn’t ready they had messed up. So we left hungry and told them don’t worry about it. Worst place I have ever been to in life.

This was my husband and I first time dining here. We enjoyed the food, it was a bit busy, as expected due to it being Valentine's Day dinner. However, we are definitely planning to dine here again and try some other dishes on the menu.

Our reservation couldn’t be found. It took awhile. Then they sat us by a window that showed the parking establishment. Our waiter was great but the bread person had A bad attitude. Not friendly at all. He was very short with me. Just plain rude. Even our waiter asked him to take our photo and he refused and embarrassed our waiter leaving him to take it.
Our food was delicious and we enjoyed our evening. Our waiter went out of his way to find me some reading glasses bc I left mine in the car. Thank so much

Food was delicious. However, our server was very slow. Our food took a long time to arrive, he completely forgot part of our meal. Had to ask for water refills constantly.

Not very impressed with the place. It’s very old and the ceiling tiles need to be replaced. They are disgusting.

I took my brother and sister in law there for their wedding anniversary. They wanted to go for lunch instead of dinner so that is what we did. It was not crowded so we were seated right away. We enjoyed our food and I have to say the service was very good. I changed my mind at the last minute as to what I was going order because I thought it would be good to have a variety of food for my order and I do not recall that I had ever eaten pan broiled oysters. I have had them fried before of course, and I know I do not like them raw. But it was a nice experience since really I do not have seafood often. Better start anew!

The interior is dated. Looks like they haven't changed the place since 1970; however, it was clean and quiet. We ate around 9:00pm so there weren't many people there. The food didn't appeal to me. The fried shrimp were greasy like they warmed them by frying them again. The catfish was good. There is a strange taste to everything. I don't know what it is, but it didn't taste good. The tarter sauce really tasted bad and the fried food had the taste too. I didn't finish the shrimp.and my wife didn't finish her stuffed shrimp. We probably won't go back.

Oldest restaurant in Houston!!! Best for fried shrimp & Greek salads. I am sure other items are tasty... but I can not change my order.
Yes there is an older crowd... but we know good delicious foods. Servings are perfect size.
Wait staff is attentive & friendly.

Christie's is a tradition in a Texas seafood house. The fish is reliably fresh and the preparations are delicious. We particularly enjoy the fried shrimp and broiled snapper, flounder, and redfish. It is also usually quiet enough to actually have a conversation. A small thing...but their rolls are really delicious, crispy but not overly crunchy and served with a generous amount of butter. My only concern with our last visit was that the restaurant was not busy, but in spite of that, the wait staff insisted on promptly removing plates from those in our party who had finished their meals. Then all the other condiments and other items were removed. It left one elderly person at our table who was not finished feeling as though she needed to just quit enjoying her meal since she was the only one remaining with a plate of food. This is not a diner and they were not busy at all since it was lunch. To be fair, I have had this experience at other restaurants. It creates an awkward situation for all and is totally unnecessary, especially when business is slow.

Amazing long standing restaurant with great food - when traveling to Houston it will certainly be on my must eat at list - the whole Flounder was amazing and really good - I recommend it as well as their Gumbo

Dinner for 6. Our waitress had no personality. She also brought one wrong drink order and forgot a second. She also didn't check on us hardly at all during our meal.
The fried dishes we ordered were good and had good-sized servings; but, there were downfalls to the remainder of the orders. The Shrimp Oyster Fish - Greek style was very skimpy. Definitely not worth the money. And, the Cajun pasta with crawfish was bad. We couldn't even eat it. Something definitely was spoiled.
The men's restroom was out of order.

Seated promptly, greeted table side quickly, appetizer/drink order taken quickly. Drinks, rolls and appetizer came out timely as did our meals. The stuffed shrimp were a little mushy but still good. Portions were good. A second glass of wine took a bit to arrive. Server was polite and mostly efficient.

The BEST fried shrimp in Houston!!! Fabulous flavor & large in size !!! 2 bites of delight!
You can order 12 (not on menu).
Also the Greek salad is also one of the best in Houston.

Service is attentive- courteous- flawless.

They know what they are doing ... yes they have been around forever. So the customers are older crowd... but the do know great food. Try it.

Been coming on/off since the 1990's but this was the first time we came to dine during Houston Restaurant Weeks. So glad we did. The surf & turf and my trout was cooked to perfection. Our waitress was knowledgeable about the wines and let us taste test to help us decide between 2. Overall a very enjoyable evening.

The food was not very well seasoned. Pretty bland for my husband and I’s liking. I’d just like to say that we ordered from the Houston Restaurant Week menu my husband got the mango stack which, in my opinion, was the best dish. I got the gumbo, yeah not somebody’s grandma gumbo, store bought probably but I mean who eats store bought gumbo. I got the seafood platter nothing different from Captain Ds my husband got the rainbow trout it was bland as well. I hope this helps someone else decipher through the list as to which restaurants are worth their taste buds and money!

Christie's is a rarity in the dining world--an institution with a long history dedicated to excellence. From the white tablecloths to the comfortable booths, it feels like it's been around for a while. Service was attentive and prompt without being too intrusive. The food was delicious. The chocolate cake was truly decadent. We look forward to returning.

Just great “old school” food and ambience. Not a five star restaurant by any means however our service was excellent, food better than advertised and we’ll definitely be back. It was one of the Bush’s favorite restaurants and we even sat at H.W’s favorite table in the bar area.
The place has been around literally forever albeit not the same owners and locations but the original Greek influence still shines.

First visit there in years and the menu is classic seafood! The interior needs a bit of freshening up.
My dinner partner ordered broiled Snapper Greek style and she was most pleased with it. I had stuffed shrimp which had a nice flavor although I probably should have had the entree baked a little longer.
All in all, my companion I were impressed with Christie's and will soon return!

It was my birthday. I had table with 4 friends. We had drinks and appetizers, as well as add ins to our entrees. We were Never offered dessert or a dessert menu. Took a long time for waitstaff to return to table. Water refills were great but not much else. I ordered a lemon drop and it came with a salted rimm instead of sugar. Very surprised and when I told them I did not like it or expect it I was met with a stare and nothing more. Food quality was good. My $46 lobster thermidor was acceptable if not a bit chewy. Over all not worst birthday but not what I expected for a long time classic restaurant.

My husband and I always look forward to our dining experience at Christie's. Almost every Friday or Saturday night, we drive from Pearland to Westheimer to unwind from the week's stress. We wanted to share this experience with others, so we invited our cousin, her husband and our son. We enjoyed the ability to visit because the noise level is zero at Christie's. The waiter was very attentive and the quality of the food is off the charts. We've never had a bad experience at Christie's and we look forward to having many more dinners there.

We came before the dinner crowd. The service was awful. The waitress did not check back with us to see if we needed anything. When we finally saw her, asked for extra bread and refills, the waitress disappeared. We had to get the attention of another waiter. The food was bland and tasteless. If you like cafeteria or hospital food, then this is the place for you!

Was difficult to find a dairy-free option and the Remoulade sauce was terrible. The server was friendly and the Margaritas were good. Close to split decision on this one but would probably not go back.
