    • “We keep going back! The ambiance lakeside is wonderful but it’s the very refined food that has really made us fans. The lobster bisque is simply the best I have had in Minnesota. We are fans! And the service is top notch.”

      -Pauline C. Speranza
    • “We have been coming to Lola’s for years and I have never thought to write a review. In the summer we love Lolas on the deck because it is so relaxing. It is much nicer than other lake restaurants-where the tables are squished and you get plastic silver and glasses…at Lola’s, it is the same as dining inside. The happy hour is fun and a great value.”
