Excellent mojito

On the waitress' suggestion, I had the mojito and she was right. It was probably the best I've ever had! I ordered the fish tacos and they were pretty good. I do wish they would have put more food on the plate as it only came with two tacos, a small pile of tortilla chips and a tiny cup of... read more

A place we went to a few times. The people at the restaurant bar were friendly. They made us feel as if we lived there. The music was good. Owner was extremely friendly.

Consistently good food and a friendly staff! Sit outside under the umbrellas and get a taste of what Fort Myers Beach is all about.

Family vacation to Ft. Myers beach (4th of July week). Every night we ate out at a different restaurant. So my family lets me chose the location for dinner on the 4th, since it's my birthday. I select La Ola, what a mistake. My son ordered chicken tenders and received pressed chicken strips. I ordered a steak ($32) and received... More

I ordered the veggie wrap - I think it was called the green hornet? It tasted very good; was glad it had some spice to it. Both the wrap and my husband's sandwich were served with tortilla chips and canned salsa - not bad tasking, but not fresh. The berry margarita was good. Service was excellent the whole time we...

Lots of fun, good food and ice cold buckets of beer. Stopped for dinner and stayed for hours. Enjoyed the guitar playing singer. Warm evening and we didn't plan on staying so long but we were having a great time. Good place to

We stopped in after dinner for a couple beers and we were pleasantly surprised by the entertainment!! I don't know who they were but they were so good and energetic! The list of songs covered decades, from recent pop tunes to Jethro Tull. The flute playing was amazing. The couple traveled throughout the crowd and kept everyone involved! I can't... More

My Husband and I just stopped by for a few drinks so can't comment on the food. The drinks were very good and the bartenders were real nice. Skinny and T were extremely busy as the Shrimp festival was going on but they kept cool and made sure we were taken care of. Nice location. Will definitely be back.

Food is very average and over priced. Service was slow albeit friendly. Would suggest you skip this and head next door to Plaka if you want to stay in the Times Square area.
