There's nothing more gratifying than a dining experience that surpasses expectations. And when you blend fine dining with the majestic beauty of viewing the Gulf; well it's memorable. The centerpiece on our first time at Green Flash was the Triple Tail Fish - a regional catch. Our Server Cheryl was our guide to selecting the evening's fair -- she is... More

Tough to say what is more beautiful the view or the dishes. It's not Gator the bartender, but a great friendly guy with a perfect recommendation. Wonderful mahi dish. Best Cole slaw anywhere. Clearly a real chef back there.

When on Captiva, if you want to eat a very good meal and enjoy a beautiful view with an island setting, do yourself a favor and dine at the Green Flash. The food is excellent, their daily specials unique and it's quality is unsurpassed on the island. We've been going there for years and it seems that they get better... More

Beautiful view, very large windows. Every table had a view. I had Roasted Pork Wellington. OMG so good. My husband had Grouper and it was awesome. Next time we will have a cocktail at the Green Flash bar before sunset. Walk to the Mucky Duck for sunset view, then hurry back over the the Green flash for dinner. The view... More

Green Flash overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway on Captiva Island. The menu has many good choices and the prices are reasonable. Their fresh fish catch of the day is really fresh and you may pay a little more for fish. However there is a variety of food items to choose from, appetizers, salads, meats including burgers and of course great fish... More

My husband ate at this lovely restaurant situated right above the water. The views were excellent as was the food and service. The menu was quite varied with a number of fish dishes. Highly recommend eating there if one is visiting Captiva Island.

We took a day trip to Captiva and Sanibel Islands and stopped at the Green Flash restaurant which is located on the water on Captiva Island. Due to the fact that it is off season, we were one of a few groups having lunch. Service was great and the food was delicious. I'm sure there is a line out the... More

I've always passed the Green Flash on the way to Mucky Duck. How foolish I was. An upscale experience at a value price$$$$ for the $$$$$ ambiance. The host created a table for us with a expansive window view that made the evening. The host gets 5 stars. The food was excellent. The service was less than adequate but everything... More

Arriving by boat is no easy chore as the wake-free zone is about a mile long but the docks are sturdy and the food worth the effort! And be sure to visit the men's restroom where the table for 2 awaits! (you'll see what I mean when you visit!)
