Used to love Cip's Place for the quality of the food. This last visit in Oct. of 2017 was disappointing and so while we usually go there several times during our stay this time we only went once.

Very nice restaurant and quite location. We had two couples with four different entrees and appetizers. The clam chowder was unbelievable with nickel size pieces of clams in every bite. The peel and eat shrimp were nice size and crisp when you bit into them....More

We had a really nice lunch with very pleasant service. The Veggie burger, truffle fries and crab cake were all delicious. The cocktails were perfect. Our server was very helpful. Thanks for a nice lunch.

We took our family of 4 to eat here twice during our stay. The steaks, burgers (for the kids) and crab cakes were delicious!!

We always enjoy Cip's- it's nice to be able to get a reservation and the outdoor seating is in a lovely garden. The waiter - Brian - recommended the special cowboy pork chops, and they were great.

Our three kids thought the chicken fingers and the hot dog were absolutely great. My wife and I were both very pleased with our seafood - nice to eat something not fried for a change.

My fiancee and I ate at Cip's Place while researching an establishment for our wedding dinner. I have been visiting Sanibel a few times a year since 1989 but had not previously tried Cip's Place. We both enjoyed our dinner there and decided that would...More

Yes. A gorgeous back patio in a garden and can handle 40 people. We have had many weddings and rehearsal dinners back there. If you look on our website you can see a picture of the spot. Hope to hear from you!

Cip's Place has lush landscaping and wonderful outdoor seating. Its beautifully decorated interior has a large wall mural painted by a local artist who has featured many of the faces of people from Sanibel history. Chef Blaine and his wife Alison are co-owners and come from a long history of food service. The food is great and the locals frequent Cip's and are enjoying it.
