Fodor's Expert Review Bubble Room

$$$ Sanibel and Captiva Islands American

This lively, kitschy visitors' favorite is fun for families and nostalgic types with fat wallets. Servers wear scout uniforms and funny headgear. Electric trains circle overhead, glossies of Hollywood stars past and present line the walls, and glass tabletops showcase old-time toys. There's so much going on that you might not notice your food is not quite as happening, and somehow that's okay. After grazing your basket of cheesy bubble bread and sweet, yeasty sticky buns, go for slow-cooked prime rib or shrimp sautéed in spicy tequila garlic butter. The homemade triple-layer cakes, delivered in hefty wedges, are notorious, and the gooey orange crunch cake is a signature favorite. Kids are welcome and will love to gawk at the Christmas Room before or after they gobble up the hand-breaded chicken fingers. Be prepared to wait for a table in season.
