While we love sitting outside and on a deck waterside. They need to get some umbrellas. They used to have sun shade sails. It was almost unbearable. Made it hard to enjoy the food. That said we had amazing flatbread pizza's and a very good walleyecakes.

Several of us made a trip to Lola's Lakehouse on June 13th - we have a friend who lives nearby and invited us up to spend some time at Lola's. Prior to going I read the reviews, they were not so good - overall the view was great but the food not so much. Lola's is tucked in and on... More

Went for supper. Everyone's meal was very good and staff were courteous. Sat inside and looked out on the beautiful lake. Fun times.

I've always enjoyed Lola's but the last few times I've been there have been unpleasant. You cannot call a sandwich gf and just remove the bun! It will not kill you to have some gf bread on hand if you are going to boast gf options!!! Also thanks for charging extra for the gf pizza crust (not great) but not... More

It was my husband's 65th birthday. We wanted something nice. I made reservations at Lola's and emphatically said it was his birthday. The minute we walked in we knew it may have been a mistake. The noise was as bad as a college football game and we were seated one table away from the bar area - extraordinarily noisy. When... More

The food and service were great. The location was even better with fantastic lakeside eating. I ordered the fish tacos and they were very stingy with their fish. The table next to me ordered the same thing and they complained to the manager about it. So, don't expect generous portions for the price, which is not super expensive, but it... More

If you want to have great food in a little upscale environment, then this is the place! The views of Lake Waconia are to die for! There are several seafood fare options to choose from and everything is very fresh and tasty. Highly recommend cocktails on the deck. Kids are welcome, but I recommend it more as a place for... More

We've enjoyed the menu, sailing themed decor and lakeside setting in all seasons. Food was good, and very suitable for families.

Lola's is a classic! On the lake with an expansive deck, fine food and efficient friendly staff. The Walleye Cakes from the Starters menu are heavenly. Our afternoon lunch with great friends was so casual and delightful we know we will make the trip often. The menu has a nice variety as does the bar. This place is Not a... More

On a Sunday afternoon, I ate the prime rib hash, and it was delicious. If I didn't live 300 miles away, I would come back tomorrow to try the corned beef hash!
