After looking at properties for sale on Captiva, we stopped in Green Flash for appetizers. Unfortunately, the time was 3:30pm and we discovered the kitchen closes at 3:30, reopens at 5:30. Oh well, it looked like a great waterfront restaurant, but we needed a bite to eat. I will write another review next time we are on the island and dine at Green Flash. (Turned out one of their staff knows a good friend of ours also in the restaurant business.)

We come over to Sanibel 6-7 times a year. This time we wanted a guaranteed good meal and cocktails and it's always guaranteed at the Green Flash. The service is good, the food is excellent with creative menu items. It's not cheap food so your not going to pay for cheap. Check the menu out for prices if that's an issue for you. Had the stuffed grouper and it was perfect. Husband had Captiva steam pot and there was so much seafood...large pieces and it was described "like none other". Desert is not the Forte. Apple tort was not warmed which was unusual but then again I should have asked. The chocolate suicide cake was scored a 8 out of 10 where would have given it a moist boost. It's a beautiful venue. In the water with amazing views and the did is awesome gourmet food. By boat they have docks with no assistance but easily accessible. Enjoy!

Food was expensive and mediocre. Bloody Mary’s served in a wine glass? Salad had way too much, not tasty, dressing.

Stopped here for a drink on a Sunday afternoon. Felt out of place. Snooty people. The host stuck us in a couple of white plastic chairs in the corner of the dock railings. Didn’t feel like they wanted to serve us to badly, too busy waiting on everyone with their big boats and expensive purses. Had a Bloody Mary, not very tasty.

My Veal Zurich was delicious and flavorful. My daughter's meal was her favorite of the week as well. I appreciated the outdoor, socially distanced seating that was available. It was very COVID safe, and the view was beautiful.
