After reading many reviews, I was sceptical of what type of service/food would be there. I went with my girlfriends. We showed up without reservations on a Friday night and wanted to sit outside, so we did need to wait about 30 minutes as it was a beautiful night. We waited at the bar. Service was very quick, even though... More

We arrived in Waconia and had our first dinner here. No issue getting a table by a window overlooking the lake. Staff so wonderful. Our waitress Julie welcomed us and gave us helpful hints for settling in here (as we are moving here). The food is very very good and reasonable prices.

I ordered the lobster bisque because I usually love lobster bisque. There were no bits of lobster in the soup, but I could live with that if the taste were good. The taste? It was not appetizing. In fact, it put me off, and I'd rather not say what it tasted like. 😩 I orders the lobster and shrimp pie... More

Beautiful Lake. Great views, I love their deck. Have you ever gone to a place, had a bad experience and try it again every once in a while, hoping it will get better? This is your place, and no it hasn't changed. The management is the same, so your wait time and servers lack of attention and attitude haven't changed.... More

Delicious! Husband had Shrimp Risotto that rivaled any other we've had elsewhere. The shrimp were fresh! Also sweet and sooo tender. Just perfect. My Cobb Salad was very good, but could've served four people. Another in our party ordered a California burger which she said was great. We were seated inside, at a screened in window, near the garage door... More

On my recommendation, a group of seven gathered at Lola's for lunch. Prior meals were just fine. This time, the food finally arrived 30 minutes after we ordered - minus my meal which took yet another 10 minutes. Average fare at best once we were able to eat.

We visited on a beautiful summer evening. There have a great outside deck on the Lake. Service was very good. Flatbread was very crisp and flavorful. Highly recommend. The pasta and chicken was nicely cooked and was very tasty. The Lobster and Shrimp Pot Pie was a little disappointing. Rather than cooked as a pie it has the puff pastry... More

We have been to Lola's many times. Today we came for brunch. Bloody Mary was good. Meal was excellent. They were very busy so food was a little slow. Since we were enjoying the patio we were in no hurry. Lots of activities lakeside but the interior of the restaurant is good too. They have some very nice menu selections... More

I love coming here for happy hour! It's only on the bar side, but you can pick your seat. If you get there early, there is usually places to sit outside. I'm a vegetarian, which doesn't leave many options, but I do like the margherita flatbread. This past time I got the brie cheese puff... sooo good. 9/10 times I... More
