A Hot Spot!

In the summer in Minnesota, outdoor dining is a must whenever possible! What a great deck with a view of the lake to enjoy a lovely meal. We arrived right at 3 so ordered off the bar menu (lunch was over). Delicious!

We ate at Lola's last weekend, and while the place is beautiful, right on the lake, the food was terrible. I had the "walleye" which was a brick of breaded fish with no taste that looked like it came right out of a freezer pack. Even with lemon and tartar it was terrible, and they charged $30. My wife had... More

The atmosphere here is like none other. Big garage style glass doors line the wall that open up to let the wonderful lake air and sunshine in. The place has a real genuine feel to it. I can only really recommend one item on the menu because it is all I order! The Clam Chowder. Just go and order it.... More

This restaurant is right on the water, and my daughters had fun walking on the docks before our food came. The food was ok, and it was a little pricey. But I don't feel like you are paying for the food here, you are paying for the atmosphere. The servers took good care of us, and they were very friendly.... More

See photos of 3 happy hour items - fish n chips, buffalo chicken slider, flatbread. Tap beers were ice cold! Service was crazy good so we tipped as though not happy hour and added more.

My friend and I went for lunch. It was raining so we are inside. The service and the food was delicious. I had the California Burger cooked well done. It was not dry it was juicy and tasty. I had the house salad with the house vinegar and oil. We had wonderful service.

Loala's Lakehouse is a wonderful family restaurant that sits on Lake Waconia. The food ranges from sophisticated to simple so it is a place for the whole family. The decor takes you back in time to it's original look for a Lakehouse. With its all window garage doors there are views of the lake no matter where you sit ,... More

We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation and the person at the front acted like we had none. I asked when I called previously to sit by the window facing the water and was told that would be fine. When we were taken to the dining room, we weren't seated at a window. We were moved to window... More

Lunch with two small children can be less than lovely, in an adult oriented restaurant; however, the staff was welcoming and accommodating to all. The food was fabulous. Best buttery & real cheese macaroni I have ever tasted. Husband reported steak sandwich as satisfying. Daughter & I had delicious crab soup. The crispy fish sandwich was large enough for two....

Celebrated with two daughters on the cold rainy day so weren't able to enjoy their deck. But the beautiful interior with fireplace made up for the bad weather. Had fish & chips which was excellent. Everyone was very pleased with the service & the food.
