Don’t know where they came up with that name? But this is a must stop when in the Ft. Myers/Captiva/Sanibel area. Exceptional food, service, and view. I rate this restaurant in the top 3 restaurants I have ever been too.

Couldn't get to the restaurant we had heard so much about so stopped to eat at Green Flash. Delicious. Great, friendly service; a table with a view and a very good shrimp pasta meal. Glad we missed the other one.

Yes indeed a great view, but you come here for the food, I think and here is where it gets bipolar. Old School menu, old school preparation with old school air conditioning (we are south FL residents and we were uncomfortable in there both times)...More

This was not our first choice, but it had ample parking and a table for 3. We were hangry. Perhaps, the hostess sensed that but she immediately tended to our drink orders and made us quite happy. Key West beer on tap hit the spot....More

We came with our boating club for lunch and really had a nice experence. No need to ask for a window seat here as every seat has a clear view of the water because of the stair step design of the restaurant. While we ate...More

My title says it all! Food is definitely above average. This is one of the fanciest on the island. Servers are very accommodating. We arrived late, close to closing. But the hostess had mercy on us and found us a table. Good peeps!
