We made sure to visit the Green Flash every year when we stayed on Sanibel Island. Good, solid food, and the bonus was (at least when we went) that they could guarantee their french fries were gluten-free (a big deal for a child with Celiac Disease, who cannot eat fries that have been fried in the same oil as breaded items, or eat fries that are coated with flour).

The location is wonderful and I remember my kids running down along the dock, having a grand ole time. We never witnessed a "green flash", but the bathrooms in this place alone are a reason to visit, at least once.

Red snapper was a lunch special and it was great. Mango salsa and steamed veggies and rice. Cheaper than most sandwiches. We ate outside, right on the water. Waitress was very accommodating.

The Green Flash is a misnomer on all scores. First, if you're looking for the mysterious "green flash" that supposedly accompanies sunsets over the gulf, look elsewhere. This place faces east and has nothing but a solid wall on the side facing sunsets. Second, it's not much as a restaurant either. My daughter and son-in-law ate there with their two young boys last week and encountered the rudest service and most tired food of our week on Captiva.

Gorgeous window views while dining indoors. Service was efficient and helpful. Dinners and desserts were excellent. (Chicken Caesar salad was a hit with 14 yr old. Surf & Turf was loved by husband.) We were staying on Sanibel and this was our only time getting in the car (rather than cycling). Well worth the drive for the restaurant ...and to steal a glimpse of Captiva. SO beautiful!
