This is the kind of place I love to find when traveling. From the outside it is a little hard to find, and looks like a small house. But come inside and you will immediately be welcomed by someone who is happy to see you. The atmosphere is laid back and seems to be filled with a lot of locals.... More

went to catfish charlies to get some fried catfish, the fish is really good. Their arent too expensive, always a crowd in there which speaks to how good the fish is. I havent had anything else on the menu but the catfish but it is worth trying.

Don't let the simple exterior and interior fool you. Nothin' fancy here. But is you want friendly service and great food, this is your place. I have had several things from their menu and have never been disappointed. My favorite is the Mitad y Mitad which is simply put, a combination plate. Always great catfish and some of the best...

We have to go here at least once a month to get our catfish and shrimp fix. Great service and reliably good seafood. Not much choice of sides, but that doesn't slow us down.

Cool dive atmosphere and great service. Lots of fried food on the menu. Great oysters and the best frog legs i have ever had. Hush puppies were in the top 3. We had lunch there and it was full of local business people. Thanks Trip Advisor.

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 the SETX coast,... More
