“Do Not Miss This Place!”
Reviewed August 23, 2007

Waterfront semi-upscale (tablecloths) located ont he Pine Island Sound side of Captiva Island. Second story restaurant klookng tight out on the water. Decen sunset view, but beach side is better.

Good wine selections, full bar, absolutely flawless service, and fabulous food with an emphasis on seafood. One o fthe house specialities is Fruits de mer, a combination of scallops, shrimp, and fish in a light white sauce, Great stuff! and I am a foodie!

This is not a place to miss while on a visit to Sanibel and Captiva.

“Great food, get a seat by the window”
Reviewed August 3, 2007

If you like a beer with your meal, may I recommend the Yuengling (draft--taste like Bass Ale) and the "barbecue shrimp" is out of this world. The best creamed spinach I have ever had. Ladies, there is not a man in the ladies room, just a statue. It always gets a few startled laughs

“Awesome!”
Reviewed July 29, 2007

The mark of a great restaurant.....we first went to the Green Flash ten years ago, and loved everything about it, especially the key lime pie. Went back last year (9 yrs since our first visit), and nothing had changed-which is a good thing. The quality of the food is outstanding. Everything my husband & I ordered (different dishes every visit) has been OUTSTANDING. The staff has always been uber-friendly, we always ask one of the waitstaff to take our picture (3 times now) and they've always been very accommodating, even the last time when they were super-busy. It was such a fantastic experience (we usually go there 3 time per visit) that this summer our first dinner was at the Green Flash, we knew it would start us off right on our vacation. Wonderful, Wonderful.

“love it!!!”
Reviewed July 8, 2007

We have traveled to Ft. Myers for the past 5 years for the week of the 4th of July...we lay on the beach,drink a little bit, and go to dinner each night for a week. On our first trip, 5 years ago, we decided to drive the island before we headed to the airport and we stumbled onto the green Flash! I don't understand the reviews that state the decor is"outdated"? We found it delightful! The place is on our schedule each year that includes, The Turtle Club, Marie-Michelle’s Restaurant on the Bay, and H& B's on the Gulf. It was the only place that offered grilled tuna and it was excellent ! Can't wait for next year!!

“Good food .....”
Reviewed May 30, 2007

We were here for lunch on a weekday. The restaurant is on the water and we had a table next to the window, so the view was nice. The decor was dated and cleanliness did not seem to be a priority, but the food was good. My husband had a burger and said it was ok, I had the shrimp and spinach salad which was very good and the kids had a shrimp quesadilla which tasted good (but was dripping with grease) and some peel-n-eat shrimp. The server was friendly and attentive. My husband said there was a table all set up for dining in the men's bathroom - not sure what that was all about!
