Delightful dockside

I've visited many times, but only from the water, and the visits have been for a midday lunch. I have always enjoyed the experience. The soup and fried grouper or shrimp are reliable standbys that I recommend. I'm not able to provide any opinion about the interior dining or dinner menu, but the... read more

A year ago, I complained about the terrible service. This time the service was good ( we were seated right away at a table with a great view) but, the food was mediocre. Undercooked shrimp for 3 of us. We had ordered BBQ shrimp and bacon. I made the mistake of diving right in.... the shrimp was really undercooked and... More

Enjoyed our lunch at the Green Flash. Without doubt the view is terrific; worth the price of lunch to sit and take in Mother Nature and the area activity. The service was very mixed; the host sat us quickly and the waitstaff came by with water, menus. We asked about the daily specials and he replied "you didn't read them"?... More

The food was okay, the service very prompt... Had a drink, starter and main course and were out in 45 minutes! View is nice but decor .... Hard to explain.... Not much ambience! Serving personnel don't add any class to this establishment .

The view here is very nice and we got to see manatees and dolphins right outside while we were eating which was really neat. The service was bad…our waitress had zero personality and acted like she did not want to be there however another waitress there was very nice and actually pointed out the dolphins and manatees to my kids...

A beautiful view from both the deck and the windowed indoor area. Our group found the food ranged from great to mediocre depending on what we ordered. The seafood chowder was excellent....Chock full of seafood in a very tasty broth and we thought reasonably priced. Grilled salmon salad entree was poorly done- It was on wilted lettuce, overly dressed even... More

The food was good and the waitress very attentive, but I was really annoyed when we checked in and asked to sit outside. It was a beautiful evening and the inside of the restaurant was very busy and noisy. I was told by the gentleman at the check in that no, only lunch was served outside. Seemed very strange to...

The food is great and so is the service. We enjoyed watching for dolphins during our meal. We liked the fish tacos and grouper sandwiches best.

The Green Flash looks over Pine Island Sound, so you won't get a sunset but you will get tranquil views with dolphins in the distance. The service is courteous and professional and the food is excellent! The crunchy grouper and key lime pie are outstanding. They don't take reservations for parties fewer than 9, so you may have to wait,... More
