Great bar and dining room but we elected to eat outside. Heat lamps were nearby but really not needed. The service was great and the food even better. The Chilled Poke' Martini was outstanding. The Shrimp Cipriani and the filet were top notch as well

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.
