This restaurant offered great atmosphere as well as a giant catfish fillet. No wait, two huge catfish fillets and fries, or a huge baked potato, or steamed broccoli and a really nice fresh crisp salad. Definitely will go again.

Christie's Seafood & Steaks began in 1917 as a small food and drink stand on Galveston's waterfront. Now located on Westheimer Road in Houston, Christie's is Houston's oldest family restaurant, and we invite you to join us for a great meal! Come in to Christie's for fresh seafood and delicious steaks! Try our famous butterfly fried shrimp. It's made from a secret recipe that has been passed down over generations. The Remoulade sauce that accompanies the fried shrimp is from a traditional recipe from 1917. It's to die for. Bring in the whole family, and feel at home with our personable, friendly staff and comfortable atmosphere. If you have a large family or a celebration, our banquet room creates a festive backdrop for any special occasion. For almost a century, the Christie family has served the same incomparable food that made its founder, Theodore Christie, famous. Dine with us tonight to find out what it's all about!
