Description: Christie's Seafood & Steaks began in 1917 as a small food and drink stand on Galveston's waterfront. Now located on Westheimer Road in Houston, Christie's is Houston's oldest family restaurant, and we invite you to join us for a great meal! Come in to Christie's for fresh seafood and delicious steaks! Try our famous butterfly fried shrimp. It's made from a secret recipe that has been passed down over generations. The Remoulade sauce that accompanies the fried shrimp is from a traditional recipe from 1917. It's to die for. Bring in the whole family, and feel at home with our personable, friendly staff and comfortable atmosphere. If you have a large family or a celebration, our banquet room creates a festive backdrop for any special occasion. For almost a century, the Christie family has served the same incomparable food that made its founder, Theodore Christie, famous. Dine with us tonight to find out what it's all about!

I had the flounder steamed in foil. Sooooooo Goood. Founded in 1917, there are some classic dishes. We went on a Wednesday so it was slow which meant our food came quick!

When you step in to Christie's you are suddenly in the past, ca. 1970, with all that comes with it. The service is excellent, the menu simple and unchanged over the years, and the food is excellent. Homemade salad dressings, with an Italian that is unlike others and superb, and classic seafood dishes. I was raised in Houston and Christie's... More

Impressed with the history of the place but the surroundings are tired and drab, menu standard, service ok and what I had to eat was downright average. I had the fried fish and shrimp combo, left a couple of shrimp as they tasted weird and half the fish as I really didn't enjoy it either and not one comment from... More

We're terribly sorry that we let you down, Rob. This isn't typically feedback we hear about our menu or the service, so it's truly disappointing.

My girlfriend and I had dinner here. We enjoyed our meal and the staff. This is Houston's oldest family run restaurant and you can see and feel the pride they take in that fact.

Better late than never. I'm a Native Texan, born and raised my entire life in the Houston area and although I've always known of Christie's, I had not dined here..that is, until last night. It's funny....earlier in the week, we had the misfortune to eat at the restaurant across the street, Angus Brazilian Steakhouse and it was then that I... More

I have eaten there a few times and it is quite average. It is not expensive, but nothing stands out in terms of quality or uniqueness. Service is good, and they will cater to large parties. Had the fried catfish and shrimp and it was okay, but no prize in quality or portion size. Ambience and atmosphere was nice and... More

Christie's is a nice, quiet place to get a wonderful seafood dinner. The entrees come with a salad and a potato. The prices are reasonable and the service is fast. 'Highly recommend this place. 'Particularly like the Christie's Pride.

This is a Houston institution! This restaurant is truly a local treasure of memories and great food. As a fourth generation Houstonian, I have literally eaten here all my life and they have the BEST fried GULF shrimp ever! It always feels like going home to go to this wonderful, quiet and family oriented native Houston seafood restaurant!

This is old-school Houston seafood. Expensive nowdays, but still fresh and real. Fried gulf shrimp is good, their oysters are my dad's favorite. I probably wouldn't go if not for him, but am usually pleased enough with my meal.
