We had been here last year, when it was called Hooked. The service then was awful and the food just so-so. The former owners of Lola's came back and opened it again with a southern flair. Much more relaxed, and the 4-6 pm Buck A Shuck is still on! We had a wonderful waiter, who actually came back to ask us what kind of vodka we wanted for our martinis (didn't have to as it was advertised to be made with Stoli, but we usually ask for Grey Goose). I had the fish tacos, that were the best I've ever had: nice & crispy, fresh cod with shredded cabbage, pico de gallo & sliced radishes. The only downside was that the sweet potato chips were on the soggy side, but I know from making them at home, it's not easy! It can be noisy in the bar, but can't beat $1 oysters! Can't wait to go back next year.

It's southern food, lots of fried things, and it's the Vineyard, so there is a lot of shellfish. However, they did a great job of navigating food allergies and the food was very good. The live (band and DJ) entertainment was also excellent, and the venue itself is huge, and far enough away from housing to let it be a little loud without risking getting the neighborhood riled up.

It is ridiculous to have entrees that are $30/$40 for food that is average at best. Service was OK, but that's about all I can say about this place. The positives: the ambiance is nice and it is much easier to make reservations for large groups here than it is for other places in Oak Bluffs. The biggest disappointment came at the end of the meal when they completely messed up the tribute to our parents for their 25th anniversary. It put a damper on the whole meal. This is not a place that I will return too or recommend to anyone.

Two tasty shrimp dishes, Bang Bang Shrimp (Asian-style) and White Cheddar Grits with grilled shrimp were A+. Our excellent waiter Branko brought us extra corn bread to take home. The Key Lime Pie dessert was a complete small tart, not just a wedge, and incredibly good. We took that home, too. We're so glad Lola's is back, and better than ever.

My family of 4 stop off at Lola's restaurant while walking from Oak Bluffs to Edgarton. We found wait staff friendly and very tentative. The food was fantastic. A large variety of food to choose from. The favorite dishes my family enjoyed were the scrupulous waffles, spinach eggs benadict, and biscuits & gravy. Also, the best seasonal fruit available at the buffet. I am definitely going back. This made a great memory of our trip.
