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

Dining inside or out offers a beautiful lake view. Service was efficient and wait staff very personable. Good menu choices. and many libations offered. Highly recommend the Fish Tacos.

Loved this place! Food and service were superb. I had a seasonal watermelon gazpacho as an appetizer which was to die for! Fresh and unique combination of ingredients- perfect summer app. Main entree was an Ahi Tuna done to perfection. My dining companions had the pork chops and prime rib- both excellent. Highly recommend a stop at Lola's. Atmosphere and... More

We stopped for lunch at Lola's today and were seated outside. Lola's is on the water at a marina. It was fun to watch the boats come and go. The fun was even more fun to see and EAT! Loved the clam chowder - full of clams and creamy! The steamed shrimp used to be served warm - which were... More

I've raved about this place in the past...been there multiple times over the years. Recent dinner was mixed. Crab cakes were less crab and more filler, slathered with a sauce and oil (?). Greens that came with it were unappetizing. Lobster roll recipe changed and now is on a hard roll. Another had Cajun pasta and liked that. Another had... More

We went to Lola's on a rainy day. It was our anniversary and we had heard this place raved about on TV so thought we would try it. There was seating available by the windows, but we were plopped down in the middle of the restaurant. We moved. My husband ordered a burger and I ordered fish tacos. The burger... More

Upon arriving in town, we had dinner at Lola's on Friday night...enjoyed it so much, went back on Saturday evening after touring the local wineries. Food was fantastic. Drinks were delicious. View was OUTSTANDING from the patio...well worth the wait. Service was top-notch. Highly recommend if in the area. Stay for the sunset too.

Lola's lake house is a great place to enjoy outdoor dining on the lake - the menu changes every so often, so you can keep coming back and try new selections. The food is delicious, and they have a nice choice of locally brewed beers. Indoor dining has a nice ambiance with the seaside theme and nice bar, plus a... More

Lola's is a typical lakeside restaurant. Could be it's the only game in town, so the portions are small and the prices are high. My "Savoy spinach, fresh blueberries, strawberries and raspberries, candy cashews with honey balsamic vinaigrette" was really skimpy. Maybe they go for minimalist. Plated because it wouldn't fill half a bowl - a layer of greens with... More
