This place has to give out 10% off coupons to get you to come. They have nice shaded outside dining, too bad the food, waitress, and manager are not the least bit nice.More

Cip's is a classy but casual restaurant. Food is always delicious. We prefer their outdoor dining area which is always comfy (even with no-seeums) with the large ceiling fans and beautiful landscaping. We visit at least once every time we come to beautiful Sanibel.

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.
