Great little spot for lunch and dinner I suspect. They claim to have the best bloody mary, but unfortunately, thats just not quite correct. The salmon salad was to die for!

Great restaurant. Variety of type of food...from great fish tacos to fine dining entrees. Comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Sometimes a little noisy. Can get busy so make reservation. Something for everyone.

We had a nice lunch in outside in the back of the restaurant. IT is a very nice setting with tropical trees and bushes. The food is quite good and the service is professional and attentive.

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.
