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. Our server was friendly and took good care of us. On to the food… my Caesar salad was great, dressed... read 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.

We stopped in for an early dinner and had prompt and good service. All our meals were very good. The restaurant in right on the dock and it has some nice ambiance. You could come dressed very nice to quite casual, which I like. It was a good experience. The only reason I didn't give the full 5 stars is... More

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.
