TaD’s Brings Steak and Seafood Back to Lake Charles
5/1/2019 1:00:00 PM


There seems to be no end to new dining options in the Lake Area. TaD’s Steak and Seafood is a recent example. Located in what was originally Coyote Blues, owner Darrin Cobb has updated the space and offers an extensive menu sure to please the whole family. The food is all fresh and homemade; gumbo, etouffee, salads, poboys, are a few of the popular house specialties. The Cobb family owns Eunice Poultry and all their steaks, boudin, and sausage comes from there. Their seafood is sourced in Louisiana. 

Cobb got his start in the restaurant business with a place in Eunice called D C’s Sportsbar and Steakhouse, which has been satisfying customers for 25 years. Five years ago, Cobb opened the first TaD’s in Tomball, Texas in a refurbished Dairy Queen. Now there are also TaD’s locations in Katy, Cypress, and soon-to-be in College Station. TaD’s regional manager, Dory Steen, says TaD’s is a family-friendly establishment. "Bring the family in. We want the t-ball team to come here after the game – the dads can watch the game on the numerous television screens or play the popular Golden Tee video golf game, the moms can hang out, and the kids are welcome.”  They offer a full bar and are open late until 2:00 a.m. with a late-night menu available.

TaD’s offers brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. You’ll find tempting dishes such as Cajun Crab Cake Benedict, breakfast bowls, and free beignets! The daily menu is extensive, including Cajun-inspired appetizers like fried pickles, fried green beans, boudin, crawfish bisque, and a house specialty – chicken cracklins. They rotate a variety of daily specials, so stop in often!

When asked the origin of the name, Tad’s, Steen says it is a play on words. "Our beer is a tad bit colder, the food a tad bit better, the crawdads a tad bit spicier, our breakfast a tad bit sweeter.”

TaD’s is open for lunch, dinner, and brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. Located at 3624 Ryan St. For more information, find them on Facebook, @tadsoflakecharles.
