Great setting... excellent food and service!

Lola's is a great place to enjoy a quiet, romantic dinner overlooking beautiful Elkhart Lake, or an impressive place to entertain clients or meet friends in a classy, quiet setting. The service is outstanding and food is presented well. The menu is somewhat limited but everything is delicious. I... read more

We gave this place my first try on Sunday night. Very few customers so we were hoping it would be a good opportunity to get some great service. Unfortunately, our waitress was distracted and did not attend or table very well. My son's entree, a pork chop, was grossly undercooked and it took about 20 minutes to get someone's attention...

We really enjoyed our meal but the terrible wrinkles in the tablecloth were so distracting. It just seemed wrong in a restaurant that bills itself as high end. Do I seem too picky? My husband thought so. But attention to detail matters! Very good cheese plate appetizer The lobster bisque was delicious and my scallops with risotto and braised kale... More

We had dinner at Lola's after a visit to the Christmas Market. We joined friends for a lovely evening of food, drinks and conversation. Lola's was a great choice as the service and menu options were excellent. Would highly recommend to anyone in the area. Just make sure to allow for a bit of time to truly enjoy.

The Lobster and Risoto New Years Eve Special was declared in the top five meals ever by one of our dining party- 3 out of four people in our group chose it and loved it. I was the odd man out choosing the Berkshire Pork chop which was also excellent. Service was wonderful when you consider that it is New... More

Evening knowing that Elkhart Lake is a resort town, it is a very small one so I was surprised at the quality of selections and the preparation and presentation of our dinner at Lola's on the Lake. I have dined there several times thinking each time that the tasty selections were an anomaly. Well, no more. The food is simply... More

The food was tasty, well presented, and the service was great. An outstanding restaurant. The ambience of the location was very nice and our group of 8 had a nice round table making conversation easy.

Went to Lolas for a quick bite while driving through Elkhart. Service was friendly and promt. I had the confit salad with shrimp, which was very good. My boyfriend had the chicken panini, which was very good, but could have used a little more pesto for a little more of a flavorful punch. Prices were fair for a "nice" lunch.

Our dinner for 4 adult family members was in October which is "off season". The dining room was fairly empty which allowed us to talk together. Some would call the service somewhat slow, but not really when you consider the care that was taken in preparing the various dishes we ordered - each person wanted something different. I feel there... More
