Never had the chance to eat here. Lovely looking restaurant but with empty tables we were rather abruptly told we needed reservations. At 5:00 pm? The bar was empty as well. Won't bother again.

Discovered Cip's a few years back thanks to TripAdvisor reviews, and I'm happy I did. The food is great, atmosphere laid back, and staff have always been fantastic. They are on my list of must visit restaurants when we are in town.

I visited Cip’s Place today for the happy hour specials. From 4:00-6:00 there are some very good specials on food and drinks. The menu offered a wide variety of food and the drink list was quite extensive. Service was friendly and efficient.

So hard to decide where to eat, then one of the locals recommended Cip's. So glad she did, food was so good and Ciptini was so yummy! Known for their buttermilk chicken which hubby had and enjoyed. Beware the outside eating area allows dogs, so...More

We had a crab cake sandwich and snapper tacos and it was great. Service was spot on and the place is immaculate. Great price performance in sanibel. We plan to return for the early bird dinner menu before 6 pm

Well we only wanted a light dinner, ordered two appetizers and two salads, well we got full on the appetizer's. The grouper cheeks were delicious, and the salad huge. Came away very very stuffed indeed! Very nice surroundings.

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.
