This place is really special. It has an atmosphere to make it a special dinner. Food was fantastic. One night I sat in the round window by the bar as it snowed. I felt like I was in a snow globe. A real treat

My husband and I like to come here for our Anniversary. Food is excellent and service is very good. Would highly recommend this for the "foody" type.

Service, food, and preparation were all outstanding. The restaurant also offers a nice view of the lake.

Inattentive and amateurish service. We had a 5pm dinner reservation and we ordered by 5:10. Our entrees arrived at 6:20. Food was OK for price. The bread was excellent. We liked the decor though given poor service and OK food we probably will not return.

Good wine choices, very pleasant servers/bartenders, and good menu basics (chicken thighs and Duroc pork chop) hit the spot. Beet salad was a bit heavy on citrus dressing and beets not as heavily roasted as I prefer, but not a deal breaker.

Lola's is an upscale restaurant and is expensive, but the food is always good. They offer steaks, seafood, salads, pasta, etc. Sometimes the service is slow, especially if they are busy. The servers are always polite and responsive, but if the kitchen gets busy, it can take a while to get your food. We've been going there for several years... More

This is a pricey but family friendly place at Osthoff. I had the most amazing pork dish, you must try it. It fell right off the bone!!!

After our plans changed, my husband and I were dressed up and looking for a place to go. Not being familiar with the area, we searched for a restaurant with an appealing menu that was open at the (somewhat odd) time of day (3pm). We happened upon Lola's. Due to the unpopular time of day to be dining, we were... More
