    I truly appreciate the updated daytime menu. Plenty of traditional favorites plus some interesting new items. The duck confit is excellent!

    First time here, my friend and I tried the chef’s tasting menu and wine pairing and were not disappointed. Each course was amazing and delicious…scallops arrancini , beet salad , gulf fish and a decadent chocolate dessert and the wines were a perfect complement. Portions were generous and arrived well timed. I also found the price for both well worth it. The ambiance was wonderful as the restaurant lends itself to a great dining experience and service was professional and on point. Looking forward to dining again in the future. What a wonderful experience it was. Thanks!

    I’m from Los Angeles, California, and coming to this distillery was such a great experience overall. I had a Collin’s Cucumber Refresher to drink, the fried pickle appetizer to start with, and the fried chicken sandwich for dinner. For someone who is in a huge fan of pickles, I highly recommend the fried pickle appetizer! They Finley sliced the pickles and fry them in a deep batter and served 10 pickles to share, with a side of their homemade pickled – ranch dipping sauce. It was seriously so delicious. The fried chicken sandwich was also very appetizing, and I wish I made it spicy for $1.50 extra. I asked for no molasses sauce, a personal request, and was an overall delicious sandwich with the pickled – ranch dipping sauce. My best friend and I were super full from our meals, and she had gotten the crawfish macaroni and cheese for her entrée, with a side salad + ranch dressing. We were both so stuffed, we had no room for the delicious dessert menu! Lola distillery is definitely a 8.5 out of 10 review. XO, Elizabeth and Amanda.

    Really good food, healthy portions. I have plenty of leftovers and didn't leave hungry. Noodles are great, crispy chicken is my favorite.
