We eat here every time we go to/through Lake Charles. Never disappoints, never. There is usually a crowd but they are very accommodating & despite all of the people they still manage to quickly & happily serve everyone. Never had a bad meal here & we try to change up our order with each visit.

Reviewed By Mark S - Houston, Texas

Best seen in spring. Not yet swelteringly hot and humid. Kids still in school. Flowers all out. Birds about. It's a great half day out. Prepare to do a bit of walking and get there real early or real late to see the best of the birds.

With its 14,000 square feet and 15 rooms, the Stark House holds a significant display of original family furnishings, China, silver, rugs, porcelains, glass, artwork, woodwork, and lighting. From the one-of-a-kind sterling silver tea service on the First Floor to the rare Napoleon death mask on the Third Floor, each level of the Stark House offers an extraordinary glimpse at the lifestyle of the prominent timber family who occupied it from 1894-1936.

The details of the home are gorgeous. The mantles, wood trim, wainscoting, staircases etc are beyond amazing. The home is decorated beautifully. They had exquisite taste. Their personal possessions are in the home & add to the ambience. The dining room was decorated for Thanksgiving & just looked beautiful with the furniture & carved chairs. There was a lot they thought of & put in the house for that time period.
