This was not our first time and definitely not the last. My husband and I are from Louisiana and now reside in Corpus Christi TX. Catfish Charlie's is the only restaurant that can mimic the food we are use to. Down home restaurant with great value and excellent customer service.

My Husband and I ate here tonight on 02/11/2014.Today is my Birthday. We stopped here on our way to Port Aransas.As soon as we sat down it seems our waitress only wanted to hurry us through our meal.We got there an hour and ten minutes before closing so it is not like we got there before closing. My husband got chicken fried steak that was burned on the edges. I encouraged him to send it back but he is one of those who is afraid of what they might do if you send it back. I got the seafood feast which was very good and was the only good part of our experience. I am a real people person and am disappointed when people in the service industry are not friendly in return.I heard our waitress asked the people next to us if they wanted dessert but never asked us.As we were leaving she was too busy watching TV to say good bye.It will be a while before we go back.

Yes, fried is the main preparation but it is not greasy and very tasty. We had excellent service and both oysters and catfish were very tasty .

I've finally found a seafood joint I like in Corpus Christi. Catfish Charlie's is IT.

Not a fancy place - not an elegant place - but delicious food and great service, at attractively low prices. Their entrees and side dishes are all excellent. This is where the locals eat. Don't waste your time on the expensive chain restaurants. Eat here, you won't be sorry!

Not sure why this place is rated so highly by others. The only plus seemed to be the waitress who was very pleasant and helpful. Otherwise, it just seems like the same old deep fried stuff in a pretty plain room.

Not worth making a special trip for.
