When your waitress greets the table with, "what do you want?" And without eye contact, you know this might be someplace you never want to return to. The food was good enough for the price (lunch) but between the creepy mannequin in the ladies bathroom and the one- way minor in the men's overlooking the bar, on top of rude... More

We stopped there for a late lunch. The restaurant overlooks the water where dolphins could be seen cavorting together. The four of us all had a specialty drink which were excellent. Each of us enjoyed a light lunch ranging from calamari, wings and a crab cake sandwich. Prices were reasonable. All seats have a water view. There is a small... More

Great food. Great location. Great ambiance. Great service. We got there early to enjoy the view. While not the sunset, it was so lovely looking out over Pine Island Sound. We started at the bar... Vaz the bartender was wonderful. He made sure the drinks were yummy and he saw to it that we had a table by the window.... More

Had a lovely lunch at The Green Flash. Sat outside on the patio with a lovely view of the water. Very good service and friendly staff. Crunchy Grouper Sandwich & fries were great. Grouper tacos were great too. Ended with a unique Key Lime Pie. It was half frozen and kind of like a light sherbet. Interesting and Very good!... More

Amazing grouper sandwich--the best piece of fish I've ever had! Fried, but not greasy or with that bad oil after taste some restaurants use. Pretty view, seemed like a very solid establishment that people enjoy. I wish I could have replaced the fries with a small salad. The lunch sandwiches could use a better vegetable to make the meal perfect.... More

We stopped for a late lunch, they stop serving around 3:30 then start again at dinner. There were 4 of us and everyone seemed pleased with their meals, shrimp, salmon and fish tacos. We prefer going when we can look out over the water in hopes of spotting dolphin or otters.

We tried this restaurant after a local said he likes it. Very good decision, food was really good we had stuffed shrimp and stuffed grouper, both good a little too much buttery for our taste but the vegetable were excellent . The view is superb, good service, nice wine list and reasonable prices for the quality of food.

What a great place to have lunch after a morning at the beach! The service was great. We all had the fried shrimp which was just the right amount to also split a key lime pie. The view was amazing. We had a window table, but all the tables seemed to have a good view. Our server pointed out when... More

The Green Flash is a good restaurant with a splendid view. You would think an island would have many waterfront restaurants but Captiva does not. When I say waterfront I don't mean "near the water" I mean big water view. Green Flash has great views and the food is fine. The hidden gem is the outside dining patio, in the... More
