Great food with great views

We were recommended to go to this place by the front door staff of another restaurant (nameless) when they were rammed out. It was super. The view over the water is great. The food is great as well. As a Brit in America I did not notice the service to be that bad, as other reviewers have... read more

We went in a group of 10 with three minors. My SIL warned me about the "bathroom humor" in the ladies room after she made a visit, right after we placed our drink order. I am by no means a prude. If these sort of bathrooms appeared in a bar I would have no issue. I believe the aesthetic the... More

Nice view, Rum Runner a must-made the original way and not with a mix. Menu nothing special. Everyone was very nice. Would go to get a nice drink, good view, and simple food.

Perhaps it is just the off season malaise. This is usually one of my favorite restaurants. The server was annoyed with customers asking her about the absence of the restaurant's signature preparation of fresh spinach and let me know about it. After my first encounter, it spoiled the evening. The quality and consistency of the food has been a high... More

The food at this restaurant is amazing & the water view is so relaxing. The reason that I did not rate higher is the poor service that we had. I will not go into many details as I am sure the manager has addressed it as we spoke to him when we left. Our recent experience sure points out the... More

One of our favorite places in the past. Shrimp bisque to die for! However, service was soooo bad this last time we haven't been back. When locals don't go back, that says it all.

The Green Flash is one of our regular stops when on Captiva and we look forward to it every year. I have to admit, I was truly disappointed to find the steamer was broken (the second time this has happened to us??) and therefore no spinach! We look forward to the spinach and the potatoes au gratin as much as... More

We really enjoyed lunch at the Green Flash on our last day in Captiva. Our waitress was so friendly and our food was delicious and came very quickly. The seafood salad was light and fresh and big enough to split between two people.

The water view from the second floor where the restaurant is located is fantastic and we even saw some dolphins swimming in the bay nearby. We had the Shrimp appetizer, the Manhattan style chowder and the fish tacos. The shrimp plate was huge - plenty of nice sized shrimp which were fried and seasoned with a honey mustard sauce. I...
