Fine Dinning Beautiful View

Lola's on the Lake provides a wonderful dinning experience in a setting that is as beautiful as it is comfortable. The selection of entrees are outstanding (they tend to change their menu often) along with tasty soups and salads. Service is attentive and efficient and the dishes come beautifully... read more

love going there for a great meal and personalized service. Looking out the window at the lake, watching the sunset is super relaxing.

In January Elkhart Lake is a sleepy little town and a night at Lola's will put you in that relaxed, cozy mood. The menu is heavy on seafood and so selections for those who don't eat it are limited and portions are small leaving one in our party with a clean plate and another going home hungry. But the food...

Lola’s on the Lake provides a great view of Elkhart Lake and the surrounding wooded area. It’s part of the Osthoff Resort, with the Aspira Spa right down the hall. Lola’s menu selection provides an opportunity to eat on the “lighter” side, with small-plate options, as well as higher priced entrees. The soups are excellent, too. I love the Butternut... More

Poked our head in for a look after a walk about. Char at The Bar welcomed us and we stayed for a couple jars and a nice historical chat with Char. A good stop.

I had the German potato pancake. Unfortunately, it wasn't quite was I expected, and I honestly didn't care for it. However, everyone else at our table enjoyed their breakfast, so my rating reflects their judgment. Server was very personable, and the food served quickly.

My wife and I have stayed at the Osthoff numerous times and even though we have walked past the entrance so many times we have never went in this restaurant to check it out. My wife suggested that we give Lola's a try. We went downstairs and walked into the bar area which was beautifully decorated for the Christmas season... More

Went with some girlfriends and had a very delicious choice of meals, I had the duck confit which was excellent. Wine was good (although we did not need anymore). Portions are on the smaller side for the price but it was more than enough, probably not for big hungry men though.

Having grown up in this county I can say this is one of the nicest restaurants in the area. Food was beautiful to look at and delicious to eat. I had scallops and they were sweet and tender. Quiet and romantic ambience - great for an anniversary dinner or special date night.

I had the soup sampler to start and was very satisfied. My entree was the braised short rib and frankly it was the best I've ever had. My wife had a house salad w/ vinegarette dressing which she really enjoyed. Her entree was a prawn alfredo with sun dried tomatoe pasta, beets and spinach. Unfortunately while the taste was good...
