About the Green Flash Waterfront Restaurant

Dear Friends,

Welcome to The Green Flash, Captiva Island’s finest waterfront restaurant. Purchased in 1994 from the Wiles family, The Green Flash was built on the site of the historic Timmy’s Nook. In 1950, T.M. Wiles, henceforth known as Timmy, opened the local watering hole. “The Nook”, as it became known, was a renowned gathering place frequented by natives and tourists alike, and is legendary as a Captiva landmark. For over 40 years, Timmy’s Nook graced the property where The Green Flash now stands. We at The Green Flash Restaurant would like to keep the heritage of Captiva Island and Timmy’s Nook alive.

Situated on the waters of Roosevelt Channel, our restaurant overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway, the tranquil waters of Pine Island Sound, and the pristine beauty of Buck Key. The Green Flash is easily navigable by boat and is located southwest of Marker 38 on the Intracoastal Waterway. So come and enjoy our picturesque view, watch the otters cavort, and fantasize about the elusive green flash while our distinguished chefs prepare your culinary delight!

Bon Appetit!
Andreas Bieri, Owner

Customer Reviews

After a day of fishing or at the beach with the family and friends, you can pull right up to the dock ... The food is really good here and the service has always been great for us.
Not sure of a more boater-friendly restaurant or bar in all of Lee County Florida. They have it going on in here, food and cocktails are supreme. Personally, I am a giant fan ...
The Green Flash is nothing short of superb. With a splendid view of Pine Island Sound, one may watch the boats or even catch dolphins playing. Service is outstanding ...
