I had a nice gluten free sandwich in the outdoor dining area. My boyfriend loved his snapper tacos. Plenty of room and nice shaded outdoor seating. Would go again.

I have eaten here over the past six years and I feel like the food is consistently good for both lunch and dinner. This last vacation, we visited for lunch and our server spoke very little English and got a few things wrong. For dinner,...More

We had 13 family members go for dinner the night after our wedding. We sat on the back porch, but they weren’t able to accommodate all of us at one table, which was disappointing. We enjoyed all of the food especially the appetizers and desserts....More

Some friends made the reservation, unfortunately the table was outside, and it was too cold for outside service. The propane patio heaters were not enough. Our server was knowledgeable, but just never around. The food quality was very good, but didn't make up for a...More

We stopped here for lunch last week and they serve one of the best grilled chicken sandwich around. The restaurant is located in one of the shopping centers so always has available parking.

Once again we had an enjoyable experience. I had the fresh catch Cobia with the Lobster butter, which was amazing. We tried some new items we haven’t tried before, the Tuna Poke and the Pork Chop special. Our server recommended it, it was tender and...More

I though the portions were small - the cips chips for $11 for example. The crab cakes tasted off. The waiter was quite poor - we talked about him all week. The setting is very nice - especially out back on the porch.

I always reserve a table on the rear garden patio, which is delightful during the day or in the evening and much quieter than the main dining room. The food is not upscale gourmet, but rather very tasty and nicely presented. The fish tacos are...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.
