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!
Always a FABULOUS choice. Great food and great service.
amazing food, outstanding wait staff, Houston Restaurant Week although limited this year for COVID the fact remains it is a fantastic fundraiser and a awesome way to support local business.
Just gracious, friendly and always fresh and delicious ❤️
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.
great food and great service. i had not been here n 30 years. try the tarama dip, its amazing. all my seafood was fresh, delicious and great portions. waiter was on it and made it a great experience. wont wait another 30 years to come back
Not bad. Have had better here before. Baby snapper good, when available
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.
Christie’s is always wonderful! Best seafood in town and they treat you like family!!
I love their food. Especially the stuffed and fried shrimp.
Been a customer as far back as I can remember of my 64 years and it is the best.
Been dining here since 1982 and we've never been disappointed - the food and service are consistently outstanding.
Christie's never disappoints us. It is our go-to place for the best fried shrimp in Houston!
Wonderful dining experience celebrating the end of a successful business project. Our fish was perfectly cooked and the service was attentive without being intrusive. This restaurant is a great value.
In these difficult times of Covid 19, Christie's is a very safe place to dine. Great care has been taken to move tables to support social distancing. I know this is a a very clean restaurant to go for great food and friendly service.
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.
It was birthday dinner and I was thrilled to be there. The food was wonderful as usual
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!
Outstanding service, Quiet bar area table, Fried shrimp the benchmark in local seafood. Going here for over sixty years
My family has enjoyed Christie’s for 75 years!
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
Ok meal nothing special. Waiter did not give taste or pour wine. Could do better than Christie's for seafood.
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.
Great place to enjoy you dinner. You can hear your family & enjoy delicious meal. Best fried shrimp in Houston .... order a dozen ... you will be happy. Greek salad is also best around.. fresh lettuce oregano etc make it delightful.
We have never ordered anything else because it is SO GOOD.. the table next to us comes for steaks & said they are the best also. Hummm. So every is good!!
Best fried shrimp in Houston
Christie’s was as good as normal. I have been eating there for 38 years and have yet to have a bad or even so so meal. Has always been very good
Excellent wait staff and food. Highly recommend to all. I was surprised that it was more down to earth than expected. Casual dress fits perfect. Great food.
Famous place. Really mediocre
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
