WHERE TO EAT
- Steamboat Bill’s on the Lake
Voted year after year as the #1 Local Favorite for fresh seafood. Make sure you try the fried shrimp, gumbo, and when in season, crawfish boiled to perfection!
- Luna Bar & Grill
Luna’s has the coolest vibe, not to mention delightful menu items. You can’t go wrong with one of their seafood entrees like the Fish Apollo, but my go-to is The Venus. Gulf shrimp grilled and stuffed under a fresh jalapeño cheese sourdough bun with all the fresh avocado, tomato, and remoulade fixings. Good eats!
You can’t visit Lake Charles without a stop at Darrell’s. Known for their “Darrell’s Special” this sandwich will have you in po’boy heaven. Ham, turkey, and roast beef drowned in roast beef gravy with crunchy yet soft French loaf – YUM! Make sure to grab extra napkins, you’ll have gravy running down your sleeves for sure.
- Restaurant Calla
My ultimate recommendation for out of this world craft cocktails and unique farm to table small plates is Restaurant Calla. My favorites – the handmade gnocchi and Moscow Mule. Make sure to try the blue crab beignets. Calla’s menu rotates with the seasons, so there is always something new to try.
