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 politely asked for a refill, the waitress told them they couldn't have a refill until after they finished their dinner. I have NEVER had this happen before at any restaurant. The children's menu food was also not good at all and the waitress was unconcerned about it. Although there were only 2 tables in the place, we also had trouble getting her to take our orders. She was openly irritated at having to wait on us, throwing menus on the table and walking off, and giving disparaging looks to our kids. We won't be returning.

We had stuffed grouper, coconut shrimp, crunchy grouper—-all were well presented and we all had spaetzel which Swiss owner is proud of—crunchy grouper was 10 times better than Timbers Grill 2weeks ago—well worth trip up to Captiva!!

We found this nice restaurant on our drive out to Captiva Island last month. It faces the water so you have a great view while you enjoy your meal. Our food was very good & drinks were too. If you are out on Captiva, be sure to try this restaurant!

If you're in the mood for something less beach bar, Green Flash is the ticket. They have tablecloths :) and all indoor dining with a beautiful view of Pine Island Sound. Even though it's not facing West, it still makes for a pretty view at sunset. Food is great across the board, appetizers to dessert. Service is great too. Take a few pics out on the dock before you leave.

We have eaten at the Green Flash 3 times. The view is great. It is fun to watch the Dolphins play.The fishing boats and seagulls provide a good show too. The last time we ate there we had chicken quesadillas and fried shrimp. It was very tasty, but the waitress was impatient and made mistakes.
