Golden Nugget Lake Charles and L’Auberge Casino Resort are situated side-by-side, connected by a beach boardwalk on the back of the casino properties. Lush with Louisiana’s flora, fauna and shimmering waterways, patrons can enjoy a gorgeous view of the water while catching one of the vibrant sunrises or sunsets in Southwest Louisiana - walking back and forth to the properties. The outside beach areas are perfect for experiencing the contrast of the great outdoors with the thrilling gaming floor.
Each property includes a wide variety of restaurants to enjoy from elegant to casual with delicious steaks, Asian dishes, Cajun/Creole twists of recipes and delectable desserts. The golf courses are ready for playing along the rolling greens, and lazy rivers and pools area accessible for a quick dip and cooling off, perfect for getting that healthy, summer glow – along with a daquiri or tall glass of Southern iced tea.
Delta Downs Racetrack Casino & Hotel gives Southwest Louisiana a Texas flair, not only being close to the Louisiana-Texas state line – but horseracing in and of itself brings out the cowboy or cowgirl in anyone. A panoramic view of the track from Rosewater Grill & Tavern creates the perfect atmosphere to enjoy the races in style. The tavern features delicious steaks or delectable seafood and drinks served with a relaxed Louisiana flair. Or, patrons can grab a quick bite to eat at the Gator Grill with dinner-style favorites, deli sandwiches and barbecued specialties. Guests can enjoy a myriad of experiences at Delta Downs.
For a taste of island time, the Isle of Capri invites people off the Interstate to soak in a view of Lake Charles. In addition to the gaming floor, the property features the Lone Wolf Express for to-go or dine-in, and Otis & Henry’s which combines the comfort of a neighborhood bar and grill with the delicious favorites you’d cook at home.
