Good weekly specials and good steaks

Harlequin Steaks and Seafood is a long established steakhouse in Lake Charles owned by the third generation Hunter family member. The steaks are generally cooked to perfection and the luncheon menu is excellent. This is a great spot for a special night out or a business luncheon.

Such a nice place to sit down and enjoy a great steak dinner. The crab cakes as an appetizer are wonderful. All of the steaks are seasoned well and cooked just as you ordered. Not a steak eater? No problem! The catfish madison (I believe that is the name) is a great dish as well! The staff are so friendly... More

Consistently good. A nice place to go for date night and special occasions. It is best to make reservations for dinner. Do order the crab cakes. These are some of the best. Mr. Hunter had done a fine job, following a family tradition.

If you are tired of noise, poor service & mediocre quality food- then take time to have a meal at Harlequin Steakhouse & Seafood. We went on a Saturday night and from the moment we entered until we left, not one disappointing thing happened. The owner greeted us & our waitress, Justice, served us attentively and expertly. We were celebrating... More

Just happened in for lunch on a Friday. Both my wife and I enjoyed the food, atmosphere and prices. First class experience all the way.

Harlequin is probably the best choice in LCH for a romantic dinner. Atmosphere is quiet and relaxed, service is good and food is very good. The homemade bread is a must as an appetizer, and all the seafood choices on the menu are top-notch! The chicken and sausage gumbo is also very good. Steaks are also excellent! In my opinion,...

Great place for a quiet dinner. Steaks are fantastic and at a very reasonable price. Service is top rate. Dress code while not enforced one should think business casual.

A bunch of friends and family of mine went to Lake Charles to celebrate birthday. The casino restaurants were too crowded and expensive so we decided to try this place for dinner and it was amazing. I had the red fish with lump crab with cream sauce on top and it was amazing. I had the potatoes which was pretty... More
