Even though the menu is small the food selection is good. It was tough to pick just one thing from the menu. The service was superb! Our server kept our drinks filled and was able to give us the inside on what to order. We...More

Before I say anything about the food, I want to say, my waitress was a very pleasant, professional, and efficient young lady. She would do very well in an upper scale restaurant. So, Catfish Charlies does get a gold star for her! However, as bad...More

How disappointed would you be if you had your mouth SET on a good ol' chicken fried steak with gravy and found out that there were no mashed potatoes? Welp...not ordering that! But my friends did. They enjoyed the CFS with no mashed potatoes. They...More

Visited there while staying in Port Aransas for spring break. We were able to get a table without a reservation. Good value for money.

Overpriced, served catfish ends and pieces ugh. Service is fair , the cole slaw was runny and weak. Hushpupies were overcooked. They could do much better.

We stopped here for lunch on our way out and the food was great as well as the staff. Had the fried shrimp and they were jumbo, came with red beans, fries and cole slaw...a great deal for $13.

Very busy place, but were seated quickly and well taken care of. Typical DR TX seafood stand menu with some added house specialties. The fried catfish was really good and I had the S.O.B.s, which are shrimp stuffed with oysters and wrapped in bacon, very...More

They have the best hushpuppies and tarter sauce, the Arnold Palmer is pretty good too. Red Beans and Rice with Ham is excellent, and the fish is good most of the times. Gumbo is ok but nothing like New Orleans. The service is hit and...More
