Was just there a few days ago with the family visiting and had a great dinner. One of the few restaurants on Island that takes a reservation. Several of us had the red grouper special served with asparagus and couscous and it was delicious. Everyone else had the old favorites and they didn't disappoint. Price is very good for the... More

A must visit while in Sanibel, excellent menu, many specials , innovative meals all fresh ingredients. Outside dining is private and beautiful! We dined inside as the evening was very cool, only to find large heaters outside! Our waiter was very attentive and both our meals were outstanding.

Beautiful, nature-rich ambience with great food and service. We had the Mahi-Mahi BLT which was fabulous and my daughter had the Shrimp wrap - equally good. Coleslaw touch above the rest and homemade chips - what can I say? We'll be back!

I would definitely recommend this place to visit while on sannibel island. It's the best place we have been too. The food was amazing for 10 of our 11 people and the one that wasn't was sorted very quickly. I had the fillet mignon which was just superb. Great service too which helped a lot

The appetizers, grouper bites and truffle fries were tasty and enough for four to share. Entres ranged from tuna martini to the pork chop special. All were well prepared and special. The sides were thoughtfully complementary..We finished the meal with key lime pie and a salted caramel cheese cake... Service was attentive and friendly. Definitely a good dining experience.

Don't be fooled by the fact that it's next to an Eileen Fisher store and looks like it's part of a resort. Yes, it's really good and has a great selection of things to choose from. But no its not crazy pricey nor snobby. We were a group of ten including four kids, and everyone ate so well! All of... More

Easy parking and nice outdoor seating. We had dinner during happy hour (4-6) and had the calamari as an app, salmon entree and ginger shrimp stir fry. $5 apps available and a few $12 entrees. The food was delicious and our server David was both personable and responsive. The atmosphere was perfect. We will be back next time we are... More

Description
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.
