Meh.

Came here with a group of friends and was pretty underwhelmed. For the price I really expected something much nicer...it was just very average. Akin to a Chilis. But you're paying for the lake view.

I have eaten here a few times and it's always quaint with quite a view. Looked for something light this time and decided on a salad, it was huge and along with a bloody mary it was too much, but very good with their house dressing. Service was very good and attentive. Certainly would recommend this place to anyone visiting... More

Tonight I had the Chilean Seabass. It was wonderful. The citrus sauce had so much flavor. I loved the paired veggies. The salad was fresh with tomatoes and sliced parmesan. The house dressing was so tasty- I absolutely loved it. I highly recommend Lola's Lakehouse. I hope to return while visiting the area this week and will be back each... More

Had a nice evening on the patio, went with the Fish & Chips which was excellent. This is a nice place for dinner on a warm summer evening.

Lakeside dining doesn't get much better than this. Atmosphere of old boathouse is choice. Admire view from canopied deck or inside. Any season is nice, but today was beautiful. Enjoyed eggs benedict and an omelet with bloody Mary and mimosa. All excellent. Tunes not too loud so could easily chat. Service attentive and pleasant.

Ate here twice in July and enjoyed the view both times! First time had fish and chips that were very good and the second time had the artisan cheese plate with Lobster Bisque soup. The cheese plate was fantastic and had local specialty cheeses - a really great way to taste some of the local (state of Minnesota) foods. The... More

Let me first say that I really like Lola's. When we lived about 10 miles from Lola's we would visit 6x/year. Now that we're 15+ miles away we only visit 2-3x/year. The inside décor really makes you feel like you're in an old fish camp/lodge of some sort - wood walls, nautical paintings, plank wood floors, garage doors that open... More

Made reservations for my husband's birthday. We had asked for an outside table and one was about to turn over but they refused to let us wait for that table. The scotch was watered down, my Merlot, a house wine turned out to be $12. a glass and with two, it turned out to be more than my entree, which... More
