Greatest desserts ever!!!

This was a unique little restaurant. They have a wonderful, campy- type atmosphere. Their desserts are to die for! The service was amazing and it was just a really fun stop after coming off the beach

Great food, all of the plates are big enough to split. Do not miss dessert, even if you have to take it to go like we did.

My wife and I stopped in on our annual Sanibel vacation because she wanted cake. We included our 96-year-old friend that is been coming to Sanibel for 50 years and has been going to the bubble room about that long. He told me that they serve the best duck he's ever had. On a recommendation from our waiter Jake, we... More

We go to the Bubble Room to show friends each year. Great menu, large portions, model trains travel thru the room above your head. Christmas oriented. Servers wear Boy Scout uniforms. Eccentric and fun place to eat.

Heard about the orange cake many times from a friend, and when I told him I would be near Captiva for work, he reminded me to visit the Bubble Room there. So so very glad he did were all of us who went as a large group. The festive fun carnival atmosphere set a celebratory mood, and the service was... More

What a disappointment. Heard good reviews about the place but the staff there were not friendly at all. We went in for a drink and some of us wanted deserts but told we couldn't sit at a table then said we wanted deserts and they showed us to table why couldn't they have left us where we were!!

We didn't have a meal at the Bubble Room, but went for some mid-afternoon cake and it was fantastic! I had the orange crunch cake and my daughter had a chocolate cake with whipped cream and fresh strawberries. We could only finish about 1/4 and had to take the rest home to finish over the next two days! The restaurant... More

The Bubble Room is one of our favorite dinner stops every year during our summer week or two on Captiva. It is a fun, throw-back restaurant with very good food, pleasant "bubble scouts" (that is, waiters and waitresses) and desserts the size of your head that are to die for. (You'll want to go just for the orange crunch cake,... More

I LOVE taking visitors here! Family, friends, old, young -- doesn't matter! First of all - It's Christmas Everyday at The Bubble Room! They have Christmas decorations everywhere... But there's also ALL KINDS of other goofy/old/unique/cool stuff EVERYWHERE inside the restaurant. Definitely NOT your typical restaurant decor! But, its fun and I enjoy it.

I frequent here often! Although I will admit because of all of the trinkets it is a bit dusty (if you look too closely) the overall atmosphere is so fun and different! You have to experience it at least once! The Marilyn Mignon is a personal favorite! YOU CANT BEAT THE BUBBLE BREAD OR RED VELVET CAKE THOUGH!
