You must use the restroom!

I won't spoil the surprise, but don't miss the restroom when you eat here! That goes for men and women. My husband and I had wanted a sunset dinner at Mucky Duck. After discovering the parking lot to be an exercise in patience, we decided to go to their sister, Green Flash instead. We weren't... read more

We had heard good things about the food and it was all true and we had a great evening. We were lucky and got seated right away and had good service all evening. The appetizer, salads were very good and our entrees were excellent. We had the blackened salmon, steam pot, the triple tale special and the house speciality Grouper... More

Walked into town and decided to try the Green Flash since it was the first place we happened upon. Very nice inside, great views of the bay from all tables. I would guess this is one of the finer dining restaurants on Captiva. I was all set on having a grouper dish until the server told us about one of... More

I wish I could say it was great, but.... Walked over from our rental and were really looking forward to our meal. We had 1/2 dozen oysters and shrimp bisque to start. Both were really good. For dinner, I ordered the appetizer portion of the BBQ shrimp and my husband ordered the filet (Md rare). Looking back, maybe ordering filet... More

The food was very good, great service, and it'sright by the water. If you have a boat, you can pull right up and go right in the restaurant. They are also a pet friendly restaurant. We loved it.

Went there for dinner at 9 pm to be told that only orders kitchen was taking was for desserts. To be fair, this turned out to be a bonus. The place was soulless and looked like a combination of airport lounge meets retirement home dinner room. Oh, and it smelled! We had a drink and left. The only thing going... More

Nice atmosphere and good food and service. The outside dining is first come first served so you can just walk in and sit down at an available table.

The menu reads great (online) and we were looking forward to dining. For $50 a head (with wine, but before tip) it was just a shade better than average. It was nice to have dinner facing the water and our server was pleasant and accommodating. The potatoes au gratin were a highlight of the meal--they're crazy good!

Our family visited Green Flash Mothers Day for lunch. My wife was after an ocean view & we had been here a year of so ago. We ordered the Crunchy Grouper Sandwich, Green Flash Sandwich & Snapper. All were ok, nothing remarkable....I thought the coleslaw was the best thing I ate. Service was so-so.....our waitress didn't offer any specials until... More
