“went for drinks”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

wanted to show a friend the hollywood/christmas kitcsh theme. it seemed quiet inside until you poke your head in each little room of this quaint building to see every one was filled with diners. richard the bartender was very pleasant and made me a mean dirty martini!

“Average food- CRAZY place”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

We HAD to go just to check out the crazy decor. Sure the food was average but the history of the restaurant and the reviews of the decor demanded we pay a visit. It's dated and a little like ChuckECheese as far as the "Bubble-scout" waiter but it was all part of the experience. Check the times because they close between lunch and dinner. There's a few bars close by so if you're a little early you can still wet your whistle while you wait. Parking might be a hassle at busier times of the year! Reccommend do LUNCH here. The desserts are GINORMOUS!

“Very unique. Worth a visit. Go for dessert.”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

The Bubble Room is absolutely a fun and unusual place. The house-type restaurant is stuffed with antique toys and collectibles. The food is pretty pricey for so/so quality. But the Bubble Room is known for it's desserts, particularly it's cakes, and for good reason. The selection is wide and the slices are more than enough to share. So, stop by and check out this unusual place and enjoy some yummy dessert, but there are likely better dinner options available elsewhere.

“Unique”
Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

Visited with friends. Decor very interesting and unique. Service good, however, was still off season. Staff friendly, unique attire for sure. Not a formal setting. Potato appetizer was great. The four of us ordered all differently and food was average to average plus. Wraps had a favorable rating, grouper was ok with accompanying rice fair and black beans undercooked, and salad was considered fair. Now....the deserts. Cakes were all very good and very plentiful in size. Would recommend for the atmosphere and a try it and see what you think. I would think this establishment would be a zoo to get into during prime season.

“Crazy place with ok food at reasonable prices”
Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

We had here a quick lunch with our friends, almost everybody had Ceasar Salad with Chicken or Shrimps, which was tasty and ok for around 10$. Beers were low cost. We saw some huuuuge cakes served at other tables, which looked very hand made and which the location might be famous for, but we didn't try. The interior is very special and entertaining itself: the restauranta motto is: everyday is christmas, but there is not very much christmas stuff around except of the bubbling bulbs, there were much more pictures of old movie stars and tons of other yard sale crap, so we couldn't figure the direct relation to christmas. However it was fun, good food, at least what we had, and reasonable price. So overall a very good and should to go and if hungry and don't know where to go on Captiva.
