Meals are delicate and tasty - I visit Cips at least twice on my 2 week vacation yearly and am always pleased. Dinners are consistently very good. Portions are fair. Good value for the quality of the food. Service could be somewhat improved.

The swordfish sandwich I had was maybe the best ever. My wife’s salad was excellent and our server was excellent as well. Highly recommend.

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.
