The food is good and nothing is fried, even though they have French fries and chicken wings, they are baked. Service was good. Entertainment was excellent. They only have one small shared bathroom which is why I only rated it as average. Not kid friendly.

We live in Fort Myers Beach. La Ola has the best entertainment every night of the week. The flatbread pizzas and burritos are great as well as the ahi tuna tower. You need to be there to experience the vibe.

So much fun to sit outside in Times Square on Fort Myers Beach! Live music was great and the atmosphere is fantastic! Staff was really wonderful too! Food was not terrific... but to sit and drink? Worth it!

Great place for dinner while staying on Fort Myers Beach! The service was amazing, Caitlin was the best waitress! Phil was playing music and he played all of our favorites! Great Pina Colada's and awesome bacon wrapped BBQ shrimp! Will head back for sure!
