We stopped in for lunch. There were only 5 tables with people at them. However, we were greeted by our server and she left us for about 20 minutes with only our waters! So make sure you have time to wait! The ahi tuna was...More

The service was great. However, the waiter forgot the soup, but comped his error with a free desert. Two of us had the $12.00 specials... Ginger shrimp stir-fry and buttermilk chicken served over scalloped potatoes with fresh spinach. Everything was great and we enjoyed it...More

If you visit Sanibel, you need to eat at Cip's. It has been in business many years and you are certain to find freshly caught seafood that is excellent. They have both inside and outside seating, but be warned in certain times of the year...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.
