We went here for a late lunch. My wife and I chose the same foods. We started with the Lobster Bisque. Awesome! For our entree we had Nueske’s Thick Slab B.L.T. It came with Boston bibb lettuce, heirloom tomato, red onion, roasted garlic aïoli, sourdough bread. Very thick bacon! Tasted awesome! We had German chocolate cake for dessert. It was... More

This is a wonderful upscale restaurant that we have visited a number of times in the past with very positive results. However, our most recent visit on a Wed. evening with 2 other couples was less favorable. WE had reservations for 6:00 and were seated promptly at a very nice table with a view of Elkhart Lake The waitress was... More

If you're looking for a fun atmosphere and a foodie experience, this is not the place to be. While the atmosphere is rather pleasant and upscale, the food is absolutely boring. The chimichurri was bland...the California Pizza Kitchen chimichurri on steak is yummier and much less expensive alternative.

Took my family of six to eat here after a very busy, crazy week. It was busy, but we were seated within 5 mins. Only ding was the incredibly creased table cloth that made your glass tip if you didn't watch where you were putting it and accidently placed in on the mountainous creases. Food was great. Kids loved the... More

Dropped in hoping to have a leisurely luncheon on their patio and it fit the bill! Not only were the waitstaff very welcoming but the good was well prepared and served in a very timely basis. The portions exceeded our appetites, so we asked for boxes to take along and they kindly provided them along with a yummy "anniversary" dessert... More

We had an early dinner on the patio overlooking Elkhart Lake. Our server was very attentive, the food was innovative and delicious. Nice wine list too.

Good service, with excellent view of lake. No waiting with nice location right at Osthoff resort. Drinks and appetizers were generous portions. Main entree was as to be expected, it was good, did not disappoint. For price, might try few of lesser priced restaurants on Lake, but overall, no complaints

Lola's is a fine restaurant with excellent fare and service. Everyone seemed to enjoy their time, and I would return if I go to Elkhart Lake again.

Lola's by the Lake in Osthoff, WI This hotel reminds me of the American Club in Kohler. Very Newt Gingrich old school money, but the restaurant Lola's was a wonderful discovery. I can tell front the people coming In that the locals have figured it out and may be keeping the secret to themselves. I'd probably do the same, it's... More

First class menu, good service, and a wonderful view of the grounds and lake at Osthoff's Resort. With our reservations in place, we were seating immediately. A bit pricy, but you get what you pay for. Looking forward to returning in the future.
