We had our wedding dinner here, just the two of us. And the staff and management were AMAZING! We really appreciated the Prosecco and kind words. The food was PERFECTION. We could not have asked for a more perfect evening. We will certainly be back!

The atmosphere is very nice for visiting while you enjoy a great array of menu items. This is a very popular eatery with locals so tourists would be wise to check it out.

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.
