The February 9, 2021 edition of the St Louis Post Dispatch reports that “Captiva Hospitality Restaurant Group, LLC, owned by St. Louisan’s Tim and Julie McGowan are pleased to announce the recent acquisition of Captiva Island’s iconic waterfront restaurant, The Green Flash.
The Green Flash has long been a mainstay on Captiva and has been considered one of the finest restaurants on the Island. The restaurant is situated in the heart of Captiva directly upon the busiest part of Roosevelt Channel. It is an ideal place to sit and enjoy outdoor dockside dining and watch the manatee’s, otters and fishing boats compete for the local catch!
The McGowan’s purchased the Green Flash from Andreas Bieri who created the concept and opened the restaurant back in 1994. Terms of the deal were not disclosed but the acquisition included both the real estate and the restaurant operations.”
