LOLA Restaurant and Lounge

Life is too short not to enjoy yourself. Take a half day to play a round of golf, sit by the lake and watch the waves gently roll in, and by all means treat yourself to a fantastic meal! If this sounds like your perfect day I’m here to tell you that you can find it all at Lakeshore Yacht and Country Club! It was established in 1860 and is located on the shores of Oneida Lake at 6777 Lakeshore Road in Cicero. You just have to check out Lola, the new restaurant, serving sensational culinary creations and now open to the public!

Lakeshore Yacht and Country Club is truly a little slice of paradise with its picturesque PGA rated golf course surrounded nestled along the South Shore of Oneida Lake. They also boast an exclusive harbor, heated Olympic sized pool, and a beautiful club house featuring stunning panoramic views. Lakeshore’s private 18 Hole Championship Golf course is nurtured by beautiful Oneida Lake which gives bounty to their lush greens, beautiful ponds, and flowing streams. The breathtaking beauty of the 120-acre course landscape lifts the human spirit and provides members the priceless value and edifying experience of nature’s grandeur.

Kyle and I went to Lola on a beautiful summer evening. We were seated in the stunning dining room with a view of the harbor and the gold course.

We started our meal with Limoncello Scallops, hearty scallops topped with prosciutto, cherry peppers, Kalamata olives, and a limoncello reduction served with a side of arugula frise. This dish was both delicious and beautifully plated; it was an absolute delight to both our eyes and our taste buds! We also shared the Calamari Fritti, tender hand breaded calamari and cherry peppers served with lemon, marinara, and aioli.  Every bite was light and flavorful.  For our entrees we both ordered beef that was cooked to perfection. I decided on the 10 oz Bone-In Filet Mignon, topped with a perfectly melted crust of bleu cheese and served with risotto Milanese and seasonal vegetables, which happened to be perfectly cooked multicolored carrots. The filet was super tender and the risotto was flawless! Kyle ordered the Bone-In Ribeye, a gigantic 20oz cut seasoned fantastically and chargrilled to excellence. This masterpiece was served with whipped potatoes and sautéed asparagus. Both entrees were stunningly presented! For dessert we couldn’t pass up the lemon blueberry mascarpone cake served with whipped cream and a delightful flourless chocolate and Jamison torte.  Both desserts were the perfect way to end the perfect meal with a view!
