We thought we would give this restaurant a try since we have been coming to Sanibel/Captiva for 16 years. The view here is amazing. We arrived in time to get a waterfront table, indoors, and was very pleased. We ordered the crab cake appetizer and wasn't thrilled. It had little crab and was a very small portion. We decided to...

My buddy and me dined for lunch here on Nov. 26, 2016 and rode in on Harley's. This place was suggested to us by other riders so we stopped in to give it a try. They do have docks for boats and its easy to get to via the intercostal. My buddy and I ordered soup to start and then... More

We recently took a nice boat ride and ended up docking at the Green Flash for lunch. The food was very good. Fish tacos were amazing and they have a very nice inexpensive kids menu as well. Staff was friendly and for the views and location and quality of food the pricing was reasonable. Dress code would be very casual... More

Dinner was good. Surprised at how empty it was on a Saturday night! I had the pork and my husband had the seafood pasta. Nice views and good food! Easy with kids.

My friends and I love coming here for the food and lovely views. We come for lunch so we can watch for dolphin, pelicans and other wildlife. It's fun to watch the boat traffic as well.

Green flash has a relaxed and QUIET ambiance. It has great food at reasonable prices given the location. We had coconut shrimp, stuffed grouper, and oysters Rockefeller. All were excellent. We really enjoyed the polenta side and fresh green beans. At a previous meal I had the spätzle, also great.

Excellent meal and excellent service. Waitress was super helpful in making suggestions and helping us choose between two dishes. She was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Even though this is a white tablecloth place, the ambiance and decor are beach casual. Portions are very generous and food/fish is super fresh.
