Tom my server was superb. The shrimp cocktail and bacon wrapped shrimp was the best I'd had in years. Fresh and delicious. Lemon Drop martinis were fabulous and refreshing. Here the Key Lime pie is light and refreshing...not a cliche. I'll be back for sure.

This is a great cafe right off the beach at Fort Myers. It is basically an outdoor cafe. The steak tacos were amazing as was the tuna salad sandwich. We would definitely eat there again.

We enjoyed an easy evening meal before sunset at La Ola. A minute stroll and you're either on the beach or on the pier and parking was a breeze at the Lynn Hall Memorial Park (pay and display sorta deal). An easy selection of tasty food that should suit most appetites and arrived fairly quickly. It was a busy night... More

We weren't sure what to get for dinner one night, we had been several places before but wanted something different. Looking through reviews and we decided to try it out. We went with half order of nachos(huge) and the La Ola flatbread pizza. We couldn't have been more satisfied! A great change from seafood and the taste was great! Service... More

Yeah, that's right - I got the nachos again - you got a problem with that? There are many other items to choose from on the menu but the nachos are so good I can't bring myself to order anything else. I'm sure everything else on the menu is good too. Friendly, fast service, outdoor seating, and live music under... More

Had garlic shrimp tapa. Should be in a gourmet restaurant. Delicious! Serrver/barmaid Angel was fantastic. Drinks are stout/strong. You won't be disappointed!

Make sure to try the Bubba Gump (shrimp burrito), it's delicious. The outside dining (I think that's all there is) is very nice with good people watching and live entertainment. You'll pay a little more because it's right in Times Square, but we felt it was worth it.
