Loved the salmon and rice while dining on the patio. Friends rated the happy hour menu as the best on the island. Friendly staff too. Always a favorite place to eat at while visiting.

Cip's completely lives up to its reputation of casual island dining in a beautiful setting. The large combo bar/dining room is airy and bright. However, we've always eaten on the outdoor gardens. Cip's takes reservations, and I recommend reservations on the screened lanai overlooking the...More

We had New Years Dinner here and the food was delicious. Service was good, and ambiance was acceptable! We could not complain about anything, but probably won’t make it a regular place, it’s more of a special occasion place for us!

We went to Cip's for 3 nights out of 7 as the food and service was good. Sent one dish back on the last night, but the second dish was OK.

We came here for lunch on a gorgeous day. The weather was perfect so we sat outside. Some tables have fans overhead so we chose that one. The service was excellent and the food was better. Four of us were all happy with our choices...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.
