My husband and I came here for lunch during our visit to captiva Island. The grouper sandwich was by far one of the best grouper sandwiches I had in Florida. They also have homemade potato chips instead of fries which is delicious. The portions are extremely generous and worth the money. For dessert my husband and I got the orange... More

The food here is just kind of average. It's expensive. The dessert portions are enormous and easily feed 3. While they look really fabulous, they are just average tasting. The gift shop has some cute things. I would recommend going at least once, though.

Crazy fun combination of themes...Christmas and antiques/old movie star memorabilia. The food is decent, but the experience is one of a kind!

The shrimp appetizer was amazing and the pasta dish was fine. Not crazy about the bubble bread or the huge piece of rum cake. Everything was fine until the waitress knocked on our car window asking for the receipt that we paid. Humiliating!! Takes the pleasure out of a meal.

I finally visited the themed restaurant, The Bubble Room on Captiva Island for lunch with my boyfriend. I had several expectations which all were not met. It was my first time to the restaurant and I wanted to see all the unique rooms of the building. I was hoping that since our waiter asked us if this was our first... More

My family has owned property on Captiva for the last 38 years and usually make a trip down to this island paradise at least once per year. During that time we have seen many restaurants come and go, and have dined at virtually all of them. It is with sadness that I can no longer recommend the Bubble Room for... More

Over priced everything, over seasoned fish, but at least the cake was good. Our server was mediocre at best and there's really no excuse for that in the middle of summer.

Charming overdone decor, but dirty. Smelled odd and like other reviewer's have said musty. Very unfriendly staff, that being said we ordered chicken kebabs, and were pleasantly surprised at how good they tasted. The bread and sticky buns were very good, and the cake was delicious as well. Very pricey, $25-$35 for an entrée. Also be careful ordering soda. They... More

We have been traveling to Captiva for over 35 years now. On our most recent visit - The Bubble Room exceeded expectations (yet again). Our Bubble Scout (Lisa) brought to our attention a test menu item (burger with bubble bread bun). So divine! Also Pita Fonda is an excellent compilation and an overall A. And of course what is a...

Being adult children with disposable cash, we loved the Bubble Room. Insanely decorated rooms with massive portion plates. Wait staff are humorous while not being obnoxious and knew all about the pop culture collection that overflows the restaurant. We had the "Some Like it Hot Hot Hot" sautéed shrimp and the "Marylyn Mignon" steak. Incredible. Topped it off with splitting... More
