colorful place, informed wait staff, good food and cocktails. Outside dining is a bit over run with animals, large & small.

We always love our visits to Cip's especially dining with friends on the back patio. We chose the Rice and Salmon Salad, not a salad in the usual form, but delicious. Some menu items are a little unusual and we may well try one of...More

Only negative is noise level inside the restaurant, so advise you to eat in one of their two outside dining areas, both of which are idyllic, reminiscent of dinners on Maui. Host Allison and server Sara are best on the island. As 30+ year snowbirds...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.
