Always worth the wait. Visited at 6:30 on a Friday night, the restaurant was hoppin'. After an approximate wait of 30 minutes we were seated and received attentive service and exceptional food. This restaurant can handle large groups or a cozy pair for dining.

Frog legs and Catfish are the best. Always come here when we come to Corpus Christi. Service was excellent and prices are reasonable.

We typically visit Catfish Charlie's for a meal when we are in Corpus Christi. This visit was a big disappointment for our family. The catfish is usually crisp on the outside and tender inside, but this time it was tough and chewy. Many of the...More
