Lola's is the nicer, more formal dining option on the Osthoff Resort property. We found the food to be slightly overpriced when compared to the quality. The shortribs ordered by my girlfriend were not trimmed properly resulting in too much fat and gristle. They do have a decent wine list to choose from.

Beautiful facilities, great food, friend staff... nice presentation... Prices... They're what you'd expect for a REAL nice plate (high 20s low 30's)

Actually the annual mid-July concours is on the doorstep of Lola and The Osthoff, so if you cinch a reservation at that somewhat busy time you have planned well! 10,000 people or so are milling around the great cars in the mid-summer heat, and there you are looking at a fascinating wine list and a very interesting menu, inside with AC if you so choose!

Winter population in lovely Elkhart Lake is now growing to about 1,000, but big events nearby can swell the streets a bit - and the July vintage races actually attract as many cars as any other event in the country, and a huge number of spectators not just from Milwaukee and Chicago but around the country and world. Wisconsin dines well and Elkhart Lake is no exception; Lola's is up to the job. My favorites are any beef or pasta dishes.

My car club has done tables of 12 to 20 people here (thanks to team planning) and appetizers, salads, sides, entrees and desserts are generally superb. As a resort, the wait staff is sometimes on the young side and 'learning' - but coastal Maine or Berkshire mountain resorts have the same challenge with a short summer window, and Lola's has enthusiastic staff in its favor.

Always glad to hear "we're dining at Lola's!"

We stopped here and decided on drinks and appetizers at the bar. We were welcomed by the bar tender and sat in comfy chairs by huge windows. The appetizers were really amazing. The scallops were large and the flavor was well... every bite was savored. And the calamari was prepared just right…no toughness detected!
