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

Food was enjoyed by all ages, and staff was very accommodating to our large group. We've been back a couple times and enjoyed it both of them.

The Green Flash faces east so I was skeptical from the start. The fellow who seated us was also full of malarkey saying he could not serve us outside because of bugs - it was breezy, no bugs. Our waitress was friendly and efficient and the seafood was very good. A family friendly place that is not cheap and distinctly... More

I've been going to Captiva for the last 10 years. I passed by the green flash hundreds of time and always wondered about it but never went in. However, I was on a trip with my girlfriend and we chose to go to the green flash for dinner. What a pleasant surprise. It's a little bit more upscale compared to... More

They restaurant is a popular spot for sunsets. Our server was very attentive, efficient and non-intrusive. She made some great suggestions for dinner and dessert. The restaurant was... More

New discovery in Captiva. Nice upscale restaurant with great food. They take no reservations as the place fills up automatically from 6 to 7pm. First servings get the table right next to the bay, great view! Friendly staff, even though it was quite busy and great great food. The sesame tuna and veal zurich are real killers. W'll be back...

We had a special occasion dinner for 20 people in the small banquet room upstairs, overlooking the water. Everyone raved about the food and service.
