On the water on Captiva Island

This restaurant at the end of Captiva Island was the best spot to enjoy a grouper sandwich . Pleasant , attentive server and a fabulous view.

The view was great, the food was very good and not bad price wise. The waitress was very quick. She wasn't super friendly, but she was very efficient. If you needed something she was right there. It will sound strange but make sure you both make a trip to the bathroom. I won't give it away but the owner has... More

Went to the Green Flash for lunch. Ordered Conch fritters, shrimp bisque and shrimp salad. My husband ordered the Green Flash salad. The server brought the wrong appetizer and never brought my soup. My husband's salad was suppose to have smoked salmon on it but our server never told us they were out. The server was pleasant but once the... More

This is probably the only fine dining option on the island. You have to climb a bunch of stairs to get up to the restaurant, but once you are up to the restaurant the views are fantastic because you are elevated. It's a beautiful view! The food quality is probably the best on the island. Here you can get fine... More

Beautiful views of the bay. Food was very good. The 3 tail fish special was outstanding(the 3 tail is a species of fish sought after for it's taste). Oysters by the piece (raw and Rockefeller) were fresh and tender. The grouper was also excellent. The waitress we had was efficient but had a bit of an attitude, especially around my... More

Go eat after seeing the sunset at the mucky duck. The is always good as is the service. If you have a boat you can dock it and walk to the restaurant.

We came by boat from Fort Myers Beach for a delicious lunch on Captiva. Green Flash was the "Captains" choice as he had dined here quite a few times. We truly loved the view from the restaurant. We had a little "miss" with our waitress, but another took over & all was right again. We had appetizers first, then our... More

Nice view but don't expect a sunset view because it faces East. Boats go by which provides a bit of interest while dining. It was too warm and humid out to eat outside which I would have preferred to do. I wasn't very hungry upon arrival so I ordered the Captiva salad with grilled scallops. It was very good with...

We haven't been to the Flash in several years. We drove out to Captiva just before sunset and went to the beach to watch the sun go down. Then we headed over to the Green Flash for dinner. We started with oysters on the half shell and calamari. Both were divine. My son had the fish platter with the optional... More

The Green Flash is our first choice for lunch when we visit Captiva. We always secure a window seat over looking the inlet and boats traveling up the river. The food is always good, service is top shelf and the prices reasonable, but we go there to watch the kayaks and boats and fro a relaxing lunch. Out door seating... More
