We make a point of heading to the Green Flash for dinner whenever we vacation on Sanibel Island. Our food was delicious and our server was very attentive. We started with BBQ shrimp & bacon and crab cakes appetizers to share. Our little grandchildren (1 and 3 years old) split the Atlantic salmon (rather than something on the children's menu)... More

This is a "must got to" restaurant and is even better at dinner time with the views. The food is definitely on par for the price and the service is always top notch!

A group of us went to dinner here and was pleased with the whole experience. We had shrimp cocktail, seafood linguine, coconut shrimp, lobster tail, raw oysters, plus 7 kids meals. Everything was perfect and food was delicious. Expensive, but delicious.

This was our favorite meal during our stay. Each of us really enjoyed our lunch and the service. It was a bright comfortable dining room with a view and nice bar selection.

Visited the restaurant for lunch. For lunch we had grouper tacos and salmon which were both very nicely prepared. Our server was very pleasant and knowledgeable offering suggestions. The old Indian rumor has it that when the sun sets in the water it causes a green flash we are still waiting to see that. Very enjoyable.

We stopped for lunch right when they opened and got a table by the window overlooking the bay. Our server Shelly let us know about the specials, got our drinks right away and took our order quickly. The food was good but not spectacular, but Shelly took the time to chat with us which made the experience great. We even... More

We visited Captiva Island to look at the beaches and wanted for somewhere to eat but feared the worst when seeking the paucity of places. We pulled into the car park of the Green Flash restaurant and initially thought that this place would be beyond our purse as it was in a heavenly location with a fantastic view across the... More

Plan ahead and request a table by the window for sunset. Amazing views, peaceful setting. Menu has lots of surf and turf items, local favorites, and everything we have tried has been good. A little pricey, as to be expected, but well worth it. If you are visiting Captiva Island or Sanibel, this restaurant needs to be on your list... More

This is my favorite key lime pie in the world! It's the consistency of ice cream so some people may be turned on but that but I look forward to it every year! OMG YUM!!!!! I have good memories of this restaurant in the last, this year seemed to be slightly lacking. The server largely ignored us...and was hard to... More

This is a lovely restaurant. One of the few between Captiva and Sanibel. We want for dinner and then lunch the next day. Their fish and chips are fresh and delicious. Gotta love their mimosas.
