LOLO American Kitchen & Craft Bar

LOLO = Locally Owned, Locally Operated


LOLO’s recent feature on WCCO

LOLO American Kitchen & Craft Bar is a new & exciting restaurant in the heart of downtown Stillwater featuring chef-driven seasonal local cuisine combined with a cutting edge bar program.  Our menus consist of a variety of playful and composed dishes with a focus on gourmet American street foods, fresh handmade cocktails and unique craft beers and wine. We offer a casual, yet sophisticated ambiance while remaining unpretentious in nature.

Located in what was once a brick alleyway, the storefront is designed to replicate the original Peasley building that was once part of historic Main Street.  The interior has been transformed to provide a timeless décor with an environment that is warm, inviting, and comfortable.

LOLO American Kitchen features a fully open kitchen & bar concept that leaves little to the imagination.  Patrons can take in the “show”, allowing them to observe the preparation and execution of each menu item.

The word lolo is an acronym for “locally owned, locally operated” that commonly refers to street side lolo food stands in the Caribbean.  Lolos are known for their warm hospitality and high quality authentic food.  They are a refuge from the hotels and high priced restaurants of the islands.  A place where both locals and tourists are welcome. Stillwater natives, Brad Nordeen & Joe Ehlenz, have now brought their version of a lolo to Stillwater with LOLO American Kitchen & Craft Bar.

We look forward to serving you as your go to destination for excellent food, beverages and service.

Eat, Drink, Socialize.

Sorry, we are a first come, first served establishment. Come on down & check in with our host & we will get you seated as quickly as possible. We have a relatively small seating capacity which fills up quickly and leads to wait times, but we always do our best to accommodate every guest in the timeliest manner possible. Please be aware that we can only approximate wait times, however, as we have no control over how long guests will enjoy their LOLO experience. Any questions please call (651)342-2461 & speak directly to our host.
