This restaurant is in the heart of the Fort Myers beach area. There was indoor/outdoor seating. We sat outside (most all tables had shade cover.). The menu had lots of options. I ordered a Caribbean Chicken wrap and it was delicious. Our server was Nick...and he did a great job. The food was great. The location was excellent. They also have live music daily starting at 2:00. One of the highlights of our trip! Highly recommend!More

In the afternoon or evening, we’ve enjoyed ourselves. Today (Sunday) we tried breakfast - wouldn’t go back for that. French toast wasn’t good, blueberry compote was ice cold, bacon was soggy - my husband had eggs & his potato portion was skimpy and he had...double the amount of bacon I received.More

The OG staff is the best I have encountered in a looong time. Food and service were terrific and the live music was enjoyable and talented. Went in for one quick happy hour drink and stayed all afternoon.

Went there to meet friends and experience was great. Then the bill came. We had two bills and both had the same items on them. When I questioned it, Isabell our server, seemed a bit annoyed. She went to fix the bill 3 times before...she got mine right but my friend that was will us, everything she took off my bill went on his so he basically got double billed. I will never drop a $1.00 of my hard earned money there again. She was a complete thief. If the drinks were not good this would be a zero star review. Look out for Isabell.More

I did not eat here, but the entertainment and the 2 bar tenders were amazing, they were so busy, and yet made sure the bar patrons as well as the tables were served!

Live music was playing here all the time so we stopped by often. Specialty drinks were all very good. Probably stopped here 4 times in a week. Only at here once. Food was ok. Probably should have given it another try. Tip - you can...buy a drink here and take it to the beach to watch the sunset.More

If your in Times Square this is a good place to eat. Sat outside on a beautiful day. Our server Kassidy was terrific dealing with many tables, we were never shorted on service. Food came quickly and was good and hot. Would come here again!

Love the music, great food, and atmosphere. Friday and Saturday live music- we had so much fun last night we came back again tonight. Highly recommend sitting out under the umbrellas and just relaxing. The crab dip and tuna tower was so good we also...got it again. They also make a good caipirinha!! Enough to please my hubby. I particularly enjoyed the surf side drink and the salted caramel Russian.More

My wife and I found this place as we walked around Times Square trying different bars. Melissa the bartender makes this place! She was very attentive to our needs and recommend great food items. They have a great singer (Andy) who sings everything. We spent...two nights in Fort Myers beach and went there twice.More

Went for happy hour spent $150 . Margs for HH are 5.95, you order them and they immediately try to upgrade you telling u how bad the standard margs are with no name tequila. I ask how much with three of us drinking them so...10 margs total and he says like $3 so I approve . Bill comes and they are $5 more so basically the dude jacked us for an extra $20 plus tip . Nachos were below average and two quesadillas and bill was $150. Total rip-off bad businessMore

We ate here during our recent trip to FMB, as we had a blast there many years ago and loved the food. This time the service wasn't as great, and the food wasn't as delicious as we remember. We had the ground beef tacos, shredded...chicken quesadilla, guac and queso and chips. The queso and chips tasted like what you would get at a baseball stadium. I wish we would've tried one of the other Mexican restaurants like Mango Ritas or Felipe's, but we didn't have a chance because there are so many options down there. Will likely not go back there next time. we're in FMB.More

In for music, some beers and Jamaican jerk chicken wings and a party broke out. La Ola stays open until 12 midnight and was the only place still open in the Times Square area. We had a group drop in next to us that livened...things up quickly and it made for a nice atmosphere that evening. Our waitress was great and very informative about the area. The chicken wings were cooked crispy with a nice jerk seasoning and I would order them again. It is a small restaurant with most of the seating out in the Times Square walkway. Interesting pricing, Bud Light's $4.46, Landshark $4.70.More
