My family had lunch here on a sunny Captiva afternoon. The location is wonderful - right on the bay. There are tables on a deck by the water, and the inside tables are on various levels for good views of the water. Fishing boats come and go, and local birds fly by. We saw several dolphins while we ate lunch.... More

We had a wonderful overall experience at the restaurant from beginning to end. Great view, atmosphere, staff, drinks and wonderful food. Will definitely go again when I get to return to this magical place.

Had dinner there last week. View is amazing. Service and food are outstanding. Atmosphere is wonderful. Can't wait to return when we visit Captiva again. Hope it's soon.

Stopped on a Sunday afternoon for lunch with our daughter and her friend. Each of us has a different meal, and all looked fantastic and plentiful. Asked for a tour of the upstairs banquet room (looking at its suitability for a wedding rehearsal dinner), and it is very nice; steep stairs, however. Located next to the sound (vs. Gulf), on...

The restaurant is located near the end of Captiva Island. And, the drive to get there is beautiful.The Bisque is the BEST I've ever had anywhere! The fried shrimp, bacon wrapped shrimp and the salads are excellent. Of course, the traffic across the bridge to Sanibel and the drive thru Sanibel is a headache., but it is well worth the... More

We dined outside on the patio and enjoyed the terrific view of the bay. It was very quiet and peaceful and the weather was perfect. We ordered the salmon with crab and mango salsa and it was delicious, fresh and a unique blend of the crab and mango flavors. Fido was able to join us on the patio and feasted... More

We shared 8 of the best Oysters Rockefeller I have ever eaten. So of course the entree would be a let down right? No way - the seafood steam I had was just unbelievably delicious and so loaded with everything I almost couldn't finish my 3rd Rogerita Margarita. Almost that is - as they were perhaps 3 of the FINEST... More

It is probably not a good thing when you start a review for a restaurant with a comment about the view. That being said, the view of the bay side of the island is very nice. You can watch the boats come in and out. We were lucky enough to be entertained by dolphins playing in the water. The food... More

Finally got to Green Flash (which faces east over an island so you can't really see a green flash from the restaurant), and liked it very much. A but pricey, and lots of very (very!) fancy people and clothes, but we were fine in slacks and shirt, felt very much part of the horsey set for an evening, and loved... More

Had a nice, quiet dinner outside and the food was very good. My husband enjoyed his salmon and my son loved his barbequed shrimp wrapped with bacon.
