Love this restaurant! We have been coming here for over 12 years and food is consistently wonderful. We went for dinner agIn yesterday and were not disappointed. We had calamari for our appetizer and both of us had the crunchy grouper for our entree. The only way to order is with the potatoes au gratin and Green Flash spinach --... More

Pretty view of the sea then downhill from there. Our waitress did not so much as crack a smile and gave us a very unfriendly experience. Food is blah and not many choices plus priced high!!! Go elsewhere is what I'd recommend !!!

Always need to stop by the Green Flash for a Captiva salad and a cup of bisque whenever we stay on Sanibel/Captiva! Staff always great, food great and cocktails have always been great. Great view of the sound.

The Green Flash is a harbor side dining restaurant. It has a wonderful water view; the food is not so great! Appetizers were pretty good. Main meal was excessively greasy & my scallops slightly undercooked. Plate presentation was very lacking in appeal. My suggestion is have a few drinks, an appetizer & go somewhere else for dinner!

Well in need of an update! Great view but outdated decor with dingy carpeting, faded artwork from the 1980s. Menu is very boring. I had shrimp quesadilla and the shrimp were tiny, canned variety! Entire plane from menu to decor needs to be gutted!

Went to the Green Flash during a recent trip to Captiva. Really good food and the service was wonderful. I had chicken with a mushroom sauce because I was getting tired of seafood. It was quite good, but, a bit salty. The rest of the party had seafood which they all felt was fresh, delicious and well prepared. It's a... More

I've been here a few times with my wife and family over the years and the best I can say is that their food is consistent. That is, consistently boring. Yet another establishment that takes advantage of the tourists, over charges, and under delivers. Like every other menu on the island, you get your standard island fair. Blackened grouper sandwich.... More

This was our first place to eat dinner on Captiva island during our recent visit. The menu selections were excellent and the server was knowledgable about the dishes. They also had a daily pasta and fresh catch selection...I choose the pasta (lingunie w/ shrimp & lobster) and it was excellent. Prices are about the average for the Captiva area (entrees... More

This would be better if it was open early for breakfast and the sunrise. Not sure why they call it the Green Flash as it's not on the sunset side. The service was a bit slow, only 2 waitresses it seemed. We sat quite a while for everything we ordered.
