We dined on a Sunday around the noon hour. It was very busy, but we were seated quickly. Food was abundant and delicious!

Got the catfish/shrimp combo. When the plate came there was three burned bery crispy shrimp and four tiny pieces of catfish. I was disappointed especially after all the hype anout Charlie's won't be going there again. Wasted $15 bucks!!!

We stopped to eat at Catfish Charlie's on our way back to San Antonio from the island. We had used Trip Advisor to find restaurants in which great seafood was served. This one rated very high and we were not disappointed! The combo plate including catfish (while scant in quantity) and shrimp along with red beans, cole slaw, and hush... More

I thought it was a great value for the food. But if you want variety in your seafood choose another place. For the Fried seafood lover, I haven't had better.

My husband and I took our three boys (11, 11, 6 yrs) for dinner here. We found great reviews for Catfish Charlie's on tripadvisor - so glad we tried it. From the hush puppies to the main course - delicious. Highly recommend it. Staff very friendly. Even though they were busy (Saturday night), we had great service.

i saw this restaurant was well-rated on this site and decided to give it a try. i did not expect a great meal but was still very disappointed by the very poor taste of small nugget size, dried out and greasy portions of catfish. The only taste in the batter was cornmeal. Sides were nothing of note either. Very disappointed... More

I'm from Alabama, and I've been in south Texas for a few years, so I was pretty excited to find a catfish place. It was pretty good. I loved the hushpuppies. The staff was very friendly.

The sides as this restaurant are the main attraction. The catfish and shrimp are ok but the hush puppies, gumbo, red beans and coleslaw are excellent. The fried oysters are very good as well. The 'homemade' sangria was not good, stick with regular drinks! Staff is friendly and accommodating to big parties. Overall, sides are worth coming back!

Hush puppies, beans, cole slaw, rice, and fried shrimp is what's for dinner tonight! This is what I had. Normally, I don't eat fried food but the meal was good. Hush puppies are given before the meal which were tasty. Great service and hostess very welcoming.

The food is spicy and delicious! The hushpuppies are great, the slaw and beans are delicious, and the fried shrimp, catfish, oysters are WONDERFUL!!!!! A bit loud for some of us old people but it won't keep us from going back.
