My wife and I love bringing folks here because it is a fun boat ride, the food, service and view are great. It's not cheap but it is worth it. Enjoy

Great food and service. The Spicy Hot Shrimp were to die for. It was an appetizer and had over a dozen shrimp. The portions are large and all of our food was excellent. Service was terrific. Def a place to go back to.

Although we come to Captiva every year, we rarely go to the Green Flash and now I remember why. The food was overpriced and less than mediocre. Our friend had a dish that looked so unappealing and tasted just as bad. My fish was fair, surprising for a restaurant on an island that has fishing boats all around it. Atmosphere... More

The Green Flash is the go-to restaurant if one wants to be assured of good food and good service. Even sitting at the bar is fun with the regular menu available or the "children's" hamburg in the evening. Most recent dinner there was pasta with shrimp and lobster which was delicious. Spinach is always a good choice with any meal.... More

Just returned to Sanibel after dining at the Green Flash. We started with the bisque and chowder, delicious and served piping hot. Our server, Carly, was helpful in our selections and the choices were terrific, both grouper dishes. We sat by a window with a view of an almost full moon. It was a perfect meal......best meal this week.

Sherry was our server and was GREAT! Very attentive, suggested items on the menu, and made us laugh a couple times. The food was good we had BBQ bacon shrimp appetizer, a special pasta with blackened shrimp, and scallops. My boyfriend loved the key lime pie which is homemade and is frozen with graham cracker crust. I thought it was... More

Good food and the views on the bay were beautiful. All seafood I had on the island was great, but I think the shrimp here was above and beyond!

On our visit to Ft Myers Florida, we drove out to Sanibel and Captiva Islands. After hiking Ding Darling Preserve in Sanibel, we drove to Captiva Island. We were looking for a place to eat and just happened upon The Flash Restaurant. The view of the bay from our table was spectacular. People were pulling up in their boats to... More

Stayed at South Seas and went for a very enjoyable dinner with friends. There was a table of 20 people in Halloween costumes having dinner (and much fun) before they to Tween Waters for the huge Halloween party. Despite this large and happy crowd the restaurant was able to provide good food and service. Sunset views are spectacular and if... More

We were a little late in the afternoon for lunch which is probably why it wasn't very busy, and were able to get a window table with a spectacular view overlooking the water with opportunities to watch the dolphins swimming by and the birds diving. As it had been a rather cold and miserable windy, rainy day, we started off... More
