Great For Drinks, Better For Music

La Ola is located in Time Square at Fort Myers Beach. Drinks here are excellent and reasonably priced. The crowd, some regulars, some first timers all seemed to be having a great time. We came from our vacation spot in Naples in about a 35 minute drive. We were 4 couples and we came for one reason... read more

I had looked at their menu this morning. The fish tacos sounded good in the description. The fish was lukewarm and mushy. After one bite of the soft shell and hard shell, I ate only the chips and salsa. The waitress never checked back or offered a refill on beverages. There are several restaurants so avoid "La Ola".

We stopped in La Ola one night with several couples and had an absolutely awesome time. The drinks were good and the band was so fun. We danced until it was time for them to quit. There were a wide variety of ages from young to old enjoying the music and the atmosphere. I highly recommend coming here. We will... More

We were at Fort Myers Beach for a few days and ended up at Times square for 3 afternoons and each afternoon the best live music was here. Food was decent. The five stars is really for the great music and reasonable prices.

The food is quite tasty, but you have to wait a really long time for it. They do accommodate food allergies, so that was a major plus. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the live music is great....

We went on a Wednesday afternoon to have some drinks, food and listen to Johnny Walker. It was fun sitting outside so close to the beach. Service, drinks and food was very good. Everyone was singing along and thoroughly enjoying themselves. This is what I call living the good life! Thanks, La Ola😎

Me and my husband only had drinks here happy hour was from 3-5 but, the nachos were generous enough for two people to make a meal out of. The afternoon we visited they had live entertainment which was enjoyable. I had a peach martini which was good my husband had a beer. The guacamole also looked good. The Outside Seating... More

The marguerite flatbread was fantastic. The crust was crispy and the flavor was just right. I also had the la Roy's fish wrap it lacked flavor. Service was prompt and friendly. I will be back.

During our visit to Time Square, Ft.Myers Beach we had a meal. The live entertainment was okay - food and service was average. The ice tea was poor in addition to the quesadillas. If you have high expectations pick another restaurant!
