“Unique and Nostalgic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Probably not a restaurant you've ever been to, so go! This place displays vintage go carts on the roof, old toys all over the interior, photos of screen stars throughout the building, and a very interesting menu that should please all tastes. We tried their homemade potato chips with sour cream and bacon, which were addicting. I had the Bubble burger, which could of used a bit of seasoning on it, but was still juicy and big! My husband had the Hot to Trot (spicy turkey club) sandwich and couldn't finish it, probably because of the big serving of potato chips! The prices were reasonable because of the large servings. The desert tray had huge slices of delicious cakes but we just couldn't try one, even though we really wanted to! Our server, Kim F., was fabulous. We had a wonderful meal and would recommend this restaurant.

“Not worth the wait”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

The food and desserts were good enough, but we had to wait abour 90 minutes. We did have a party of 7 (six plus a highchair) but we saw several similar sized parties arrive later and get seated ahead of us.
Our waitress was nice and the place is neat, but I wouldn't go back.

“Quirky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Go for the dessert! If you want a specific cake make sure you reserve it when you give them your name because by the time you are finally seated it may not be available. Very quirky atmosphere but fun and super friendly servers called 'Bubble Scouts'!

“tourist trap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I guess everyone should see it once, but it's more like high priced fast food. The menu is very limited and the service is so "over the top" that it's starting to seem a little dated. We wouldn't return.

“Desserts were the Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We did not eat an entree here- we had desserts to go. The cakes were some of the best we have EVER eaten. The orange crunch and coconut cake were fantastic. The torte and red velvet were excellent too. From what I saw, the rooms are eclectic and very cramed with 'stuff'. This would not be an atmoshere I would find relaxing, but many people enjoy it. My advise, go somewhere else to eat, but stop in for dessert!
