A must see when you are in Captiva/Sanibel

What a hoot! The experience starts when you drive up to the bubble room - from the gorilla cage out front, to the bubbles painted on the fence around it, and all the building's bright colors... then you get inside and there are hundreds of antique toys and bubble scouts to serve you. Definitely an... read more

With 3 stories and little trinkets from the past, this restaurant is definitely unforgettable. The entrees have cute little names like Great Gatsby and Some Like It Hot Hot Hot! I love this restaurant and you will too:)

The sweet rolls that arrived before dinner were delicious, but that seemed to be the theme of the whole dinner. Sweets are better AFTER a meal, not before. Everything else seemed off too. The bread was heavy and tasteless, even though it was covered with some kind of cheese mixture. All of us left food on our plates because it... More

Best place for dessert and cocktails. IT's pricey and if you're wanting to sample the bread and desserts, go for the TINY BUBBLE on the menu. It comes with bread (cheesy and sweet rolls) appetizer, salad and dessert. The Orange Cake is our fav

I have been here many times and always enjoy the experience and food. I started coming here over 30 years ago. Many things are as good as ever. I must be critical about a few changes over the years though. First, the sides for the meal are just not as good. They used to serve a cooked plantain with the... More

Went during Christmas Holiday with family for lunch. We had great service, great food and my niece and nephew thought it was the bomb!! Have been going here since the early 90's and it is still the same kitschy place!! Don't miss the she-crab soup and the unbelievable orange layer cake!!

The bubble room is a place we visit everytime we visit Captiva. It's so much fun. The food is ok but you definitely need to go for the atmosphere.

Even if you only go once, the Bubble Room is a Captiva landmark! Not FINE dining; ...FUN dining... although some of the menu selections show as much imagination as the decor! My shrimp done in a delicately flavored "hot creamy sauce" was excellent. This is a fun eating spot for every age. Take the kids; or Grandma--she'll see lots of... More

I went to the bubble room with my grandma and sister, and we had the best time! Such a fun place with cute decorations. Our server was Austin, or should I say bubble scout, and he was great. He helped guide us through the menu and was able to answer our every question about all the delicious cakes. There were... More
