We went at lunch time to book for a couple of evenings ahead. They would not allocate a table but reluctantly took a booking. Lunchtime was full and nice views. Evening, 7.45 it was empty apart from 2 tables, unsure if Americans eat at 'nursing home' time. Chose a table while we had a drink, only one table occupied now.... More

Great food and the view is breathtaking. Food is reasonably priced and very fresh. I highly recommend the key lime pie.

We enjoyed lunch multiple times here on our visit to the island. The setting provides a comfortable and relaxing dining experience. If you are lucky you may even catch sight of a dolphin surfacing or jumping in the bay. There is great variety on the menu and the staff aims to please. There isn't a bad table in the place!

The Green Flash Restaurant is one of the best waterfront restaurants on Sanibel & Captiva. One of our favorite restaurants on Sanibel/Captiva. It's almost to the very top of the island. Great views of Pine Island and some of the smaller islands. Small boat dock available. Our favorite is "The Green Flash Club Sandwich" Staff is very friendly and accomodating.... More

Visited with relatives, their first visit to the Green Flash. Everyone ordered something different and all had delicious meals. We have been coming to the Green Flash on all our visits and have never been disappointed. Highly recommend.

It was a beautiful day for a ride when we spotted the Green Flash, looked like a nice place. Right on the water. Service warm quick and professional and the food was delicioius, as we watched the dolfins and manatees off the dock it made for a great afternoon.

We were there for my dad's 92nd birthday. The food and wait staff were exceptional. We had a great seat. Be sure to look in the bathrooms. Great surprise.

We had lunch here based on the recommendation of someone who had been at this particular restaurant some number of years ago. We had a great table from which to watch the sea. Our waitress was pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. One of our members of the party was unable to eat certain shellfish and the chef very kindly... More

Well...we were looking forward to a good meal. So so disappointed. We decided to get stone crabs and they literally had no flavor and we all know stone crabs aren't cheap. Our service was terrible...I am usually very forgiving but this waiter paid no attention to us. Had to flag down the Manager because my fish was very fishy. He... More

OK, so from the street-not so much. Inside there is a fabulous wall of windows and a terrific view. But the food you ask. Have no fear, everything is delicious and fresh. I highly recommend the shrimp bisque as a starter. From there go sea or land-either way a winner.
