Enjoyed dinner at Lotawata on a Sat night. We were warmly greeted upon arrival. The menu is extensive! They offer something for everyone! We had the Steak and Shrimp Romano. It was delicious! I recommend splitting the entree's, they are huge! Our bill was only $22 and some change! We enjoyed everything, the service, food and atmosphere! Will be back... More

We definitely enjoyed this place when we stopped here! There was lots of food for not so much. I got the country fried chicken and it was delicious! I would definitely go back!

Well, you will not leave hungry and will have plenty of leftovers for the next day! The food is delicious, although probably not "heart-healthy" as there is lot of frying and use of cheeses and sauces. But, those cheeses and sauces are really yummy, especially on the chicken marsala! The fries are equally good and the portion size is enough... More

I was really sad to see all the negative reviews for Lotawata! We have been there many times even though it is a 45 minute drive. We take friends and family there. There is almost always a wait, but it's worth it. The food is always great...mostly home style and delicious. Yes the portions are huge, so we always take... More

The food here is amazing. I have been many times and have never been disappointed. The burgers they have are an interesting twist of classics and off the wall. Everyone of them are amazing. The portions are over the top large. The burger will cover a normal dinner plate and the fries they pile on the side would cover another.... More

Arriving here we didn't have any expectations. But if we did it would have surpassed. My brother and I both ordered burgers. My heart attack burger was ecstasy for my taste buds. My brother had a Mac and cheese burger. Delicious! Staff was wonderful and food delicious!

We were in town for business and wanted to eat somewhere unique that wasn't part of a chain. Tripadvisor reviews decided for us and I'm glad they did. The food was excellent and they weren't kidding about the portions. I would definitely eat here again!
