Cips has exceptional food. Some of the best on the island. Nice ambience. We usually have not had to wait at all when we have dined here. An easy bike ride off Periwinkle. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this restaurant!

No better happy hour on the island. Service and staff are great. Adam the manager always makes you feel welcome. We have been coming here for years on vacation from Tennessee and will hopefully continue to do so for years to come.

One of our favorite places to eat during our 2 week stay on Sanibel. Fantastic happy hour- best wings on the island. Adam, the manager, always takes the time to interact with us.

Visited for Happy Hour appetizers. Not as good as last year. Fried calamari average at best. Pizatta ok. Cip's Chips good chili and cheese. Service at the bar was excellent- otherwise would be a lower rating.

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.
