I was expecting another bar type menu when we walked in and I was truly surprised by the selections on the menu. My dinner was perfect, scallops with the best vegetables and the most divine scalloped potatoes, just the great amount of nutmeg. And, our server JD was a delight!

If you are boating and want to go to a good restaurant, there is no other place than the Green Flash. We have been there 9 or 10 times by boat and always enjoy the food, service and view. There is plenty of docking space and the slips are easy to get in and out of The crunch grouper sandwich... More

The Green Flash restaraunt on Captiva Island is a great place for an intimate dinner. The menu offers some great seafood choices and the dining room has a spectacular water view. The service was outstanding, great waitress and friendly bartender. If you go, try to get there early because they don't take reservations and they are usually busy.

Last year (in December) we enjoyed a lovely lunch at the water's edge on a beautiful day. This time it was an excellent dinner on a stormy night in October. The weather didn't matter. Following a tasty shrimp bisque, we had three seafood dishes, each perfectly prepared: steamed seafood, swordfish, and grouper stuffed with crab. Sides of steamed spinach, veggies,... More

Some how, after an unpleasant experience at the Bubble Room (I suggest avoiding it.We walked in and out. I'm not sure why this is still a must see in so many travel books) when my husband said Green Flash, I thought of a super hero and another "themed" restaurant. Luckily, we took the time to stop in. What a lovely... More

I enjoyed the visit. There was only about a 10 minute wait. The kitchen was a little slow due to a wedding, but our server let us know what was going on. Food was delicious. I'd definitely go back.

We travel to Captiva every year and always wondered about this restaurant. We finally decided to go for lunch one day, which was a terrible mistake! The service was bad, and when I asked for a sandwich without one of the items, I was told they could not do that, since all the sandwiches were made beforehand. At their prices,... More

Second consecutive year we've made this place the stop for our last meal on Captiva. Beautiful waterfront views from inside window seats when you're dressed for the airport - next time we'll come by while we're visiting and can enjoy outside dining. The crunchy grouper sandwich is absolutely delicious! Ordered this at the recommendation of owner of the condo we... More

Great waterfront restaurant. We sat at the bar and just had drinks and appetizers but the food and atmosphere were great. You have to go to the restrooms at this place for a really big chuckle. I won't ruin the surprise but it is a hoot. Friendly staff and we met a really nice family vacationing from London.

Stopped in for dinner last week while spending a week on Captiva. Once again, the food was delicious, fresh and nicely presented. The service was excellent and the view spectacular. This restaurant will continue to be one of our favorite stops while visiting this beautiful island.
