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

The menu contains family recipes that date back 50 years. Steaks are very high quality, seafood dishes very tasty. Don't pass on the desserts, which come from old family recipes

Arrived for dinner at 1700 hours and was promptly seated. Our waitress Justice did an incredible job informing us of the specials. Very attentive and extremely professional. The Manager had great suggestions as well. For an appetizer I had the fried oysters. Probably the best I have ever had. Our steaks were cooked as ordered with a lot of flavor.... More

We dine at Harlequins at least once a month. The steaks are always good and there are several good salad and sides choices. This is a family restaurant and the owner, Nick makes you feel like family. We always see people we know when we go. The entrees don't change much except for a daily special, but there are enough... More

I've been here many times and can say that it certainly fills a niche. It's a place in between fine dining and chain steak & seafood. The service and management feels closer to fine dining but the quality of food is closer to a nice chain like Outback. Would actually prefer Outback if it had the same service and management....

Enjoyed a wonderful meal here on Thursday night. T-Bone's were cooked to perfection and just as we ordered them - one well and one medium rare. Austin, our waiter, was attentive and took care of all of our needs.

Had a great late dinner. Service was average, at best. The food was much better than average, for this area. I definitely intend to return.

Harlequin is fantastic. I have always had great food there, the service is sometimes slow. Your not waiting on your food, but the servers themselves are sometimes slow. Atmosphere is unique, but very nice. Lots of history throughout the building. The food is always great. I eat there usually for lunch, but dinner service is fantastic as well. The crab... More
