Lakehouse out, Wolfie’s in: Scott and Nyla Wolf buy popular restaurant space on Geist


Announced on Valentine’s Day, Scott and Nyla Wolf, owners and operators of Wolfie’s Grill & Italian House, have purchased The Lake House at Geist restaurant, 11699 Fall Creek Rd., formerly Bella Vita at the Marina. The restaurant is set to become the fifth Wolfie’s Grill location.

The Wolfs current own and operate five restaurants, which include three Wolfie’s Grill locations in Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville and Westfield, and The Italian House in Westfield.

“When Nyla and I opened our first location on Morse Reservoir (in 2004), we wanted Wolfie’s to be a restaurant that combined out love for nature, sports and good food,” Scott said. “Thousands of chicken wings and nearly 15 years later, we’re excited to get back to our roots and put another Wolfie’s location on the water.”

The couple said in the coming months, the restaurant will undergo extensive renovation to bring its familiar atmosphere to the reservoir.

“From the beginning, it’s been important that each Wolfie’s location feel like home to all of our customers,” Nyla said. “It’s our intent to continue to highlight Geist as an amenity for our customers, so there will be ample parking for boats right on the lake and entertainment throughout the summer in the outdoor beer garden.”
