We have wanted to try Lola’s for some time and the stars aligned this past Friday. We were promptly seated for our 7PM reservation and were able to score a table by the windows as requested.

We had a retirement party for one of our employees at Lola's. The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. It was a perfect evening. We had 52 guests in our party. Everyone was truly impressed with the party and our choice to have it there. Thank you for a memorable evening.

Lola's serves good meals at a usual price. Entrees are priced in the mid-teens. Sometimes I want a very small salad (like about a cup's worth) to go with my meal to boost the vege factor, and I can't order one small enough. Dishes labeled 'spicy' usually aren't spicy enough, so ask before ordering. Flavored martinis are very interesting and... More

We always enjoy eating at Lola's, the food is always excellent. We went with another couple a week ago, the only complaint was there was no lighting close to our table other than the votive on our table so it was very hard to see our food. We all ordered side salads, very good and a meal in itself, easily... More

We enjoyed a surprisingly good meal. After several average meals at this restaurant we tried the new chefs specials. The bolgonase was the best I have ever had, it was full of flavor and the texture combinations perfect. My husband enjoyed the sea bass, again very flavorful. The presentation of both meals was outstanding! Adding to our enjoyment was being... More

I came here while the lake was frozen so I couldn't enjoy the view at it's fullest but I'm sure its beautiful during the summer. I ordered the fish&chips which was just ok, very standard Cod fish and regular chips. The size of the dish was also just normal, not too big and not too small.

The only good thing about Lola's is their atmosphere. It is right on the lake, very nice. The menu is very limited and very expensive. Then when you get your food it isn't very good, especially for how much you pay. I say skip it and go any where else.

Lola's is a great place if you are looking for a unique lakeside restaurant. I simply love the way the place is laid out and all the nautical decorations. If you are looking for an intimate restaurant, this is not for you. It was loud and very boisterous. The night we were there a group of Christmas Carolers were singing... More

We had a very special family occasion and choose Lola's as the place to dine. From start to finish, everything was top notch. Atmosphere, ambiance was perfect, nicely decorated for the holidays along with great background music Lola's went above and beyond to find a semi-private spot for our group of 14. Service was top notch and the food was... More

My wife and I "discovered" Lola's about a month ago and have now been there four times and have recommended it to friends and family, as well. I have eaten fish and chips all over, including in England and Australia. Lola's are the best tasting, the portion is large, and the price is reasonable. Everything we've tried is really good,...
