I've been here numerous times and thoroughly enjoyed every bite every time! Oyster stew was the best ever, just like grandma used to make.

This past week my husband and i hosted 22 people for our monthly supper club at Christie's and it was PERFECT! The manager, Maria, was so kind and attentive to our needs.

We have regular business meeting at Christie's. The service is good, and they have a nice room for such meetings. Their fried shrimp is fresh and very good. I enjoy the side of potatoes au gratin that comes with the meal. Also, their grilled chicken is good.

Description
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!
