Stopped here with the family for lunch. Not a huge lunch menu but enough variety for everyone. Kids had Caesar salads with chicken which they liked wanting nothing too heavy because they spotted the cakes when we walked in. Mine and my husbands lunch (prime rib dip sandwich and his a shrimp po boy sandwich) were decent but have had... More

We ate here today for lunch after a morning cruise. I had eaten here 10 years ago with my husband and we remembered it being an enchanting, quirky, fun, unique place with the most delicious, fresh, moist, giant pieces of cake for dessert. This place never left my memories. Fast forward 10 years & 2 kids later. Here we are... More

Got in, looked around, and quickly got out. This place is dirty and smelled foul. How anyone could eat here is beyond me! Yuck!

The moment you pull into the parking lot, you just know you are in for something different. Antique pedal cars and bright colors adorn the building. Walk across the yellow brick road and enter through the door into a place of memories and nostalgia. You ask yourself what is this place a museum, antique shop but you see cake and... More

(week of 4/5/2014). The Bubble Room was recommended to us as a "must do" by two different sources, as this was out first visit to Captiva Island. The interior / environment is really the only asset and even then, the displays could use some serious re-work. I am not a foodie, but simply put the food was the most expensive... More

Don't come here for the food--just the amazing kitschy collection of stuff (that is worth the trip). As previous reviewers have noted, the desserts are HUGE, but not really all that good. Take a couple to go, look around while you wait, and you will have gotten the "best" of the Bubble Room. The servers do all seem haughty and/or... More

This place relies on its collection of Stuff. It's neat to look at some of the old toys in their display (which covers the whole restaurant). There's not a lot to do on Captiva on a rainy day, especially for kids, and they might have fun looking around. However, the food is really below par. The desserts look impressive on... More

Overall a good fun place, if you're with a big fun crowd as we were. Food is average at best, be prepared to wait a bit and you do get the distinct feeling they're doing you a favour getting you a seat!! Barman was the grumpiest I've encountered (one was good) but this guy was strutting like he was Maître'd... More

Outside is adorable. Fun for kids. Cute gift shop. Lots inside for kids to look at. Lots of fish tanks but looking closer they aren't really well cared for. In fact, when we were seated there was a large dead fish being eaten by another!! Yuck!! Reseated quickly (if I had been on my own I probably would have called... More

Just dined here by the request of our 11 year old daughter. Had been a few years ago and she remebered it and wished to retrun. It is a visual overload of kitsch, toys and movie star pics. Our two young guests ordered the "Cheetah" meal off the kids menu and enjoyed the prime rib. I ordered the "Calypso at... More
