    All the starters are worth ordering but if you had to pick, I'd go with the conch fritters and jerk ribs. Crispy shark sandwich is meaty and juicy. Cool back garden for your summer delight!

    I had the broiled salmon on Johnny cakes...AMAZING!!! Between the crisp cakes, the succulent salmon and the satisfying salsa, there were so many layers of flavor and texture! Heaven is in Harlem!!

    Wanted a quick bite & tried LoLo's after reading reviews. Pleasantly surprised, my fiancé & I agreed the food was delicious! Sweet potato wedges, garlic fries, Salmon&Crab cake sandwiches. Thumbs up!

    This place is the real deal, the crabs and shrimp were huge and packed with flavor, wings were meaty and delicious, jerk ribs were dry and mild but pretty good, loved it!

    Johnny Cakes, Chicken Wings, and conch fritters to share - with a Shark & bake (to yourself)- all washed down with ginger beer.. If you're still hungry throw in an order of crab legs. Thank me later ✌

    "Authentic Caribbean food in Harlem that's worth the trip. Grab a picnic table outside with your friends and order one of everything." - Alexa Mehraban, @EatingNYC Read more

    The food was very delicious however the service was fantastic. The folks that work there couldn't be nicer. Order up front, grab a beverage then sneak out back to sit outside while you wait.

    Everything is yummy! The "chips" are addictive and the Crabby Dip (with plantain chips) and shark and bake sandwich are must haves 👌

    Great casual seafood spot, worth the trek to Harlem. Only downfall: no booze + not BYOB. Alaskan king crab, plantains & conch fritters are great. Lobster bake was good, but nothing special.

    A Cape Cod\Caribbean mash up with an island focus that gives new meaning to seafood. Crabby dip with callaloo is a keeper. That salmon sandwich is right up there. Turn down that music! Back garden???

    Shark and bake is delicious. Johnny cakes are super tasty. Crab is also good and plentiful. Be sure to check out the home made hot sauces.

    You can't go wrong with whatever you get from here, but ask about specials when you call since the menu online isn't updated.

    Finally got to try this neighborhood spot. Crab bake sandwich was so buttery + flavorful! Ask for Lolo's special sauce ;)

    You can't go wrong. I haven't had a dish I didn't like (so far). Next on the list is the cauliflower.

    Great concept and service. Food is good but a bit greasy so be prepared for a grease overload after dinner. Not healthy at all
