Great Food!

While visiting family in CC, we decided to eat at Catfish Charlie's. So glad we did, the staff was warm, friendly and knew the menu. Now for the food, the free basket of warm hush puppies were awesome, the perfect amount of seasoning and heat. We got the combo of catfish and shrimp, now I live on... read more

So glad we came to Catfish Charlie's. The reviews we good and they were spot on. Service could not have been better. I had the Feast and everything was better than good. My wife had fried oysters so good you could taste the freshness. Best of all was the best ever hush puppies. Keep up the good work.

The food was great. I'm from MS so when it comes to catfish and hush puppies I'm super picky. Good portion sizes and great waiters. Will be going again.

This is not the first time we've eaten at Catfish Charlie's; although we live in Missouri, everytime we're in Corpus Christi we have to have at least one meal. The catfish, red beans and rice and frog legs are always delicious.....have not had a bad meal in all the times we've eaten here.

Just had lunch and the fish and shrimp were good. Lunch plate was about $11 for the two items also came with beans and fries. Try not to fill up on the hush puppies they keep bringing them out before your meal. It'll be hard because they are amazing.

Very simple decor, a seat yourself type of place, not fancy, but very good food. They start you off with a basket of very good, slightly spicy hush puppies, fried perfectly, served hot. My wife had the fried shrimp platter, breading was excellent, not too thick, let the flavor of the shrimp come thru. I had the Bayou County Feast... More

Wanting a bit of everything, I ordered the Bayou Feast ~ the gumbo left a bit to be desired, it just didn't do it for me. All other items knock it out of the park! The catfish is truly the best I have ever had in a restaurant ~ it tasted very much like something you would cook at home.... More
