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.

I have passed this restaurant many times and finally tried it out. The food was fresh and delicious. The fried shrimp was exquisitely lightly fried and their seafood Alfredo was loaded with plenty of shrimp and crawfish. I wish I would of tried this place sooner. We are adding

We decided to try this well established seafood restaurant. The Seafood Gumbo was excellent as was the Fish Poboy. My partner enjoyed the Shrimp Poboy. The service was good and we will go back again and enjoy some other menu items

Very friendly hostess seated us and we brought to 6 the number of tables occupied. Observed 3 servers waiting on the other 5 tables. We made eye contact several times, to no avail. Finally left after 20 plus minutes. No water, nothing. Luckily we live in Houston with plenty of superb restaurants. We do not have to settle for tired... More

My wife and I were in Houston celebrating her birthday and just happened upon Christie's Seafood. They've been in business since 1917! The yummy food, attentive service and the old "seafood décor" complete with a huge marlin on the wall all made for a wonderful evening!
