Best high-end, family-owned restaurant in Lake Charles

Mazen's - Reviewed by Tina F on November 11, 2015

This is the restaurant we go to for special occasions especially our wedding anniversary. The setting of the restaurant is really romantic. I suggest you dress appropriately for a fine dining experience. My favorite is the redfish topped with crabmeat. I order it every time we go. If you want a romantic fine dining experience in Lake Charles Mazen's is the place to go.


It's Got It All (and then some)!

Chart House - Reviewed by Carolyne8818 on January 31, 2018

What an extraordinary restaurant! My husband and I dined there last week and it was simply fabulous. It has great views, a very charming and romantic setting, outstanding quality of food and superb service. If you go there, try to sit in an area served by Dennis. He is great and will make sure everything is perfect for you. Also, try to meet Chef Josh. He is outstanding and will go the extra length to ensure that your food is exactly what you want. He truly caters to your taste buds. And his presentations are a work of art! Love the Chart House!


Great Experience!
