We read that this restaurant is a good place for lunch and it was. We did not see any wildlife, but the view was beautiful through the windows to the water. There are docks. The restaurant was very empty, but maybe because August is off season. The drinks were pretty, delicious and not very expensive. The food was also good.No... More

Our best dinner out of five restaurants. We had a window-side table with a great view of the water. Menu was diverse. We shared an excellent Ahi Tuna appetizer and each had very good fish entrees. Hot bread was a treat. Wine list was not extensive, but had good choices at reasonable make-ups. Too full for dessert, but other diners... More

Overpriced and under portioned. There were some parts of everyone's meal that were ok but overall we all (party of 8) walked away feeling like we had been cheated out of a good dinner during our precious 1 week vacation. The kids ordered buttered pasta with Parmesan cheese and all thought it tasted bad. It's pretty hard to mess up... More

We have been visiting the Green Flash for about 5 years. It has always ranked high with me and my family until NOW! We went with some friends this time and it was a terrible experience. The hostess was hostile when we asked about the table and it's size, the server was stressed and the food was below par. VERY... More

This place is fairly nice with pretty casual dress code. I ordered stuffed shrimp and it was good. Wife enjoyed the drab cakes. Service was par with finer dining. View was really nice. Overall really nice experience. They had a table with chairs in men's room as a joke and 2 way mirror to bar. It was funny for my... More

We have been here several times, try to make it up at least once while vacationing on Sanibel. The menu is heavy on seafood, but has sufficient variety to meet just about any preference. The food is uniformly excellent, many dishes prepared with a twist and the chef's touch, but never weighed down with seasonings or exotic combinations designed to... More

We actually had two meals with this restaurant. The first one was actually delivered to our beach house on the night of our arrival. We had fettuccine with shrimp and it was AMAZING. The owner actually delivered it and gave us instructions on how to serve it. She could not have been more helpful and enjoyable. A few nights later... More

We have gone to the Green Flash for years when on vacation in Ft. Myers Beach. This time it did not make an impression on us. We will visit it again when we are over there just to see if we got them on a bad day but it's always been so very good over the years.
