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.

My Uncle's favorite restaurant !

Great food, great service. What's not to like. We go here every year for Dinner. My Uncle bought a house on Sanibel in 1994 and recommended Cip's Place to us. We love it!

We ordered a couple of desserts to go and they were both good. I have to say the carrot cake was my favorite out of the two. The other one was the peach melba cheesecake. Yum!!!

We had been wanting to visit Cip's for a while! We made it this trip and we will definitely be back! The beet salad with grouper added was fantastic! Great apps at a reasonable price during happy hour. Looking forward to sitting outside next time too!

We stopped here unexpectedly for dinner and I'm so glad that we did. The service was great our waitress was very friendly and accommodating and the menu had a great selection. I had the fish and my husband had a seafood medley. My daughter had the vegetarian pasta dish which was very good as well. The prices are very reasonable... More
