First trip to the Green Flash after many trips to Sanibel Island. It’s located nearby on Captiva and well worth the short drive. First impression is it was a bit upscale but the dinners were very reasonably priced. Went with my wife and sister in...More

The positives: No wait, beautiful location, spacious restaurant, fun drinks and generous entrees. The negative, which was a big one, was the poor service and treatment of our children (well-behaved pre-teens). For example, while drink refills were included, when our children finished their sodas and...More
