Best steak in town is Harlequin, hands down. Best wine reduction can be found at Mazens. For fried or raw oysters, Pat's of Henderson. Pioneer Club has fantastic fried oysters...almost a signature dish. Overall combination for a great dining experience, Lake Charles Country Club, Harlequin or Mazens. All are subject to a " bad" night. For consistency and freshest menu, I would give a high five to Mazens.

We arrived at about 7pm and were seated immediately. Our orders were taken within the first 5 minutes. appetizer was the fried calamari, was very good and tender. Rib eye was huge and arrived medium rare, ordered medium. It was very tasty. Good ambiance, friendly servers. Will go again.

This place is a treasure near the hospital. I have tried a lot on the menu and it is great. The Steaks are a little different but still good. Lunch here is always a treat.

Yes we waited 2 hours for a table of 10 on a Saturday night, but well worth the wait. Upon arriving we were told 1 1/2 to 2 hour wait. They were accurate. Drinks at the bar were great and had samples of pizza while waiting. Owner and chef came around to ask how everything was, more than once. My husband is particular about his food and he enjoyed it greatly and stated "better than Ruth Chris!!". Definitely going back

This is one of Lake Charles' better places to eat, especially for steak. The steaks will just melt in your mouth, they are so fabulously tender. There's also a choice of four sauces to go along with them, all good. The salad are great, the pizzas and calzones are delicious! Good selections of beer and wine, it's all wonderful!
