Go here to watch the fishing boats come in for the day. Very peaceful and great views. Food was delicious and service was wonderful too. Portions are quite large.

This has been a go-to place in the past for taking friends or family, and has been recommended by me to scores of clients. However, recent visits have proven to me that dining here is hit or miss. Most recently we dined with family members. I recommended the grouper sandwich which was excellent months before when here with friends. This... More

We had been to Sanibel on a number of occasions but had always wanted to venture up to Captiva. Of course lunch was part of the trip and I had chose to try out the Green Flash. I had used Trip Advisor as part of my research on where to stop. It turned out to be a great decision. From... More

On Tuesday evening (March 21), we visited the Green Flash. We ordered the Venetian Platter and the Scallops Au Gratin. Both were good, but not great. The main negative was the service. We'd no sooner been seated when the server appeared to take a drink order. It should have obvious to her that we'd had no time me to look... More

Just a Sunday afternoon drive yielded a wonderful surprise. We were looking for good fresh seafood and were not disappointed. Very fresh and plentiful. Service friendly, knowledgeable, and quick. To add to all this a beautiful view of the bay. No seat in the place would be without a view. Will be back!

We tried this place for the first time and were very happy with our choice. The view is the best in Captiva in our humble opinion, especially when there are manatees playing in the water outside. The food is decent. We had sandwiches and soup that were way too salty. Could be greatly improved by simply toning down the salt.... More

Great view and kids thought the surprises in the restrooms were funny. We were the youngest people in there by far - no other kids in the restaurant.

My family stumbled upon this restaurant the first time in 2014 while driving through Captiva Island. We loved it so much The outside atmosphere in the bay and the amazing birds sets the setting as so beautiful and peaceful. The food is amazing. I am a vegetarian, who has been broading my horizon's with seafood and this place was a... More

What a beautiful spot to watch the boats (and often Manatees!) float by as we sipped on Green Flash Pina Coladas! Try the crisp yet tender calamari. The grouper sandwich was also outstanding.

Not only was the view spectacular, but the food was wonderful. There is not a bad seat in the house and this popular restaurant did not disappoint with the food. We had the Shrimp Spinach Salad and it was by far the best one I have ever had. My suggestion is that you go early as this restaurant is very... More
