The Bubble Room opened in the 80's with a nostalgic and eclectic collection of memorabilia. Thirty years later most of the collection is now just old and broken. The rug smelled funny, most of the collections now look creepy, and the place felt more like Orlando than Captiva. On a happy note-the desserts are still fantastic and you should get... More

Upon recommendation by a friend, my wife and I stopped by mid afternoon for dessert. We were told that this place was a bit kitschy, and we were not disappointed. So many fun things to see. Many items caused memories of years past to come flooding back. Our Bubble Scout brought the dessert tray to the table and we made... More

Very expensive, servers made us feel as if they wanted us to hurry with our food. Service was not friendly, Sad as the last time we ate here it was a good experience.

Strange and quaint and worth a visit. Food OK but cakes delicious. My wife had the the most enormous piece of cake that was excellent - but too much.

My sister and family had eaten there decades ago so I decided we had to check it out, even if only for dessert. Sad to say -- things have gone downhill. The stale air, grimey appearance, and crowded seating were not welcoming, nor was the view to a fence bordering a storage (trash?) area outside. By going in during the... More

We have always enjoyed the desserts at the Bubble Room. This visit, we decided to skip the meal and just take the dessert back with us to enjoy. Sadly, it did not meet the expectations of past years. Seemed to be a bit on the stale side. We'll try again next time, though.

This was my third visit to the Bubble Room, as I have been twice before in the last decade. Still yummy and still entertaining. This time my two grand daughters (13 and 9) were also along. They were very entertained by the atmosphere and eyes opened wide at the sight of the dessert tray. I had the Tiny Bubble which... More

The ambiance, the decor, the staff the food makes it worth the price. We had a great time and could not eat another bite. Will go back!

Oct 11, 2014. Party of 7; two plant based eaters, other were omnivores. Huge portions. Very pleasant staff. Drinks were replenished frequently without having to ask. Omnivores were happy. Kitchen made a pasta dish ($22) vegan but the pasta was way over-cooked and mushy; broccoli, carrots, garlic, and red sauce; flavor was okay but couldn't eat mush pasta. Was taken... More

We spent our honeymoon in Marco Island. One day we decided to take a drive up to Sanibel/Captiva. I had heard about the Bubble Room but we had already decided on another place for lunch. We stopped in just to experience it and have some dessert. We sure were glad we did! It was hands down the best Key Lime... More
