There's Lola by day and Lola by night (plus a food truck but that's another review!)

There's Lola by day and Lola by night. Try both. At lunch, order at the counter for a delicious filling daily special or indulge in a tasty sandwich with a cup of soup. Lola is nearly always busy on workdays and there is a good reason for this. On weekend evenings the place transforms to a lovely... read more

Went there for dinner after church one Saturday evening. We did not have reservations but the staff worked us in. The menu was great everything was delicious and fresh. The setting is the old railroad station in Covington, Louisiana. Very nice reserved atmosphere. I would recommend reservations as we were fortunate to be accommodated.

Located in the old depot, this place has great lunch -- home-made bread, soups, salads--DELICIOUS! And locally owned,not a big chain. Owners always around. Night time--great little bar and wonderful, romantic place.

This is a great little place that is chef owned with the chef in the kitchen. It is an old railroad warehouse. It still has the old loading doors. They use fresh local ingredients and use inventive techniques when putting it together. Last time we went we had a stuffed flounder that was set on top of little red potatoes... More

The service is timely, the house side salad is delicious and the shrimp and grits was the best I've ever had. Lola's is a must if you come to Covington.

My wife and I were visiting Covfington and found LOLA online...the first thing I was told: "we no longer use the menu online", so I had shrimp and scallops at this really cool restored railroad depot. The seafood is fresh and the wine list was good. The waitstaff was average and the food I had was OK, but $30 for... More

The crab and asparagus soup was as good as it gets. The Depot chicken sandwich with red cabbage and homemade pickles was so good too. It's a must lunch stop in Covington.
