Our son is leaving for the NAVY and we wanted to give him a Houston food tour before he left. It was his first time to Christie’s, and he loved it. The staff was so great and food wonderful as always. It made a great memory for him to take with him. Thank you!

I was a little nervous when I drop up because I saw a drive thru window and I thought to myself oh my goodness this is going to be cheesy. I wouldn’t mind normally except we were bringing a friend here for her birthday. We chose this restaurant because it was recommended by my mother in law. Once inside the building and decor was a bit dated but the place has been around over a hundred years.

The service and the food however did not disappoint. Nothing we ate or drank disappointed. Our server Miriam was just delightful. She was so welcoming and warm and made us feel right at home.

There isn’t a single negative thing I could say other than perhaps it’s in dire need of an update.

Best fried shrimp and stuffed shrimp ever! Salad was crisp and plentiful. Rolls - well, we each ate 2 rolls loaded with butter. The baked potato was the perfect size, made specifically per our instructions. Christie's maintained social distancing, wore masks and kept our visit totally 'sanitized.' Fans were off.

I have eaten at Christie's for 54 years and as usual, it was very good. The restaurant had social distancing and the personnel had on their mask and gloves. Worth going out to eat in safety.

The service was very slow. At first we were the only ones in the restaurant. With that being said you would think service would have been a little faster. The main reason I will never go back is the food. The food was dry and tasteless. Also the restaurant is very out dated and in need of up dating.

Best fried shrimp in Houston.
On the pricey side though. It has always included a baked potato if you wanted one, along with a salad. But now charge $3 for the potato...takes it to an overpriced total.

Super great Seafood restaurant. Everything is received fresh daily. I love the Shrimp. Anyway they prepare it, It’s wonderful. The fish was prepared to perfection. The house made sauce added just the right additional flavor. They serve some really tasty wines. Sold by the bottle and glass. Prices are reasonable.
From first date, to family get-together. Christies can accommodate you. My family has been eating here since it opened in 1917.
I have used them for numerous functions. They always do a outstanding job!

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

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
