If I hadn’t heard heaps of praise for Lola’s Seafood Eatery, I probably never would have stumbled upon it. Lola’s is hidden behind a large hedge off Northlake Boulevard in a small shopping center once the home of Joseph’s Classic Market.

Set up like a fast food eatery, Lola's is much more. It's order at the counter (they deliver to the table) but part of the menu changes frequently with catch-of-the-day specials.

With seafood galore and more, Lola’s serves a somewhat authentic fried shrimp po’ boy - not piles of shrimp like Gulf coast sandwiches where shrimp is cheap - but a pared down version, which was tasty.  Sides – fries, cole slaw, black bean and corn salsa – are packed with flavor and stand as exceptional complements to a  menu that includes New England style rolls - lobster, clam strip, or oyster and more elaborate fare such as seafood paella, a number of seafood salads, crab cakes, fish tacos, pasta bowls and chicken dishes. 

The best of Lola’s could be the three-course meals for $18 or less that feature fresh fish like scrod or wild salmon – a seafood bargain. Chef’s suggestions for these three course meals change daily. Dinners include soup or salad, fish entrée, and a dessert which could be a beignet, crème brulee or brownie. An ample selection of modestly priced wine and beer is available to top off a meal.

An attractive patio draws diners when the weather cooperates.  Expanding to a third location in Saint Lucie West (another operates in Stuart), Lola’s offers an excellent alternative to expensive fresh seafood dining.  It’s a winning concept that’s sure to catch notice. Family-friendly and very casual.
