Since we discovered Cip’s three years ago, it has become our favorite restaurant on Sanibel, where we have vacationed most summers for more than twenty years. This month we had many dinners there, tried most non-seafood items on the menu, and were never disappointed. Cip’s serves a wide variety of items, and we enjoy having the option of a light... More

Our waitress Sara was wonderful, full of personality and opinions. She made our visit to Cip's special. We had read reviews for Cip's and many people loved the Fish Tacos. We were all so in the mood for Fish Tacos that we thought we would give it a try. All four of us had the tacos. There were two soft... More

Cip's Place is one of the restaurants we really look forward to eating at when we come to Sanibel every year. It's consistently the best restaurant on the island hands down. We started with a cup of the shrimp and crab minestrone caprese pizzata. The soup was fresh and light and the pizzata was very tasty. My wife had the... More

The staff was very friendly and attentive. We had two young children and adults and the menu accomodated everyone. The food was great. Scalloped potatoes and fried chicken were good to the last bite. The grouper reuben was a big hit also. The children's pizza is homemade and may not be to all children's liking but the mac and cheese... More

We ate outside as it was a nice evening, I feasted on the BEST grouper sandwich I have ever eaten and the bugs feasted on us. My adult niece had several welts all over her back and legs. I would opt for eating indoors. Staff was as fabulous as the food.

We were here for dinner with a party of 15. The place was practically empty and we were seated right away. Service was ok considering it was so many of us. Menu options are limited. I had a dish with pasta, vegetables, and grilled chicken that was just ok, not very tasty. Pasta with shrimp seemed to have very few... More

We took our five children here last month. We enjoyed it. The crab cakes and rolls were good. The service was good. The restaurant was very loud inside but we didn't have to wait for a table. When we return we will ask for an outside table.

While revisiting Sanibel, I was at first disappointed to learn that CIP's no longer served the chopped chicken salad, one of my favorites. After reviewing the menu, I decided to try the new Crab Cake Sandwich. GREAT choice. Seasoned very creatively with a key lime dressing and absolutely delicious. CIPS Chips are also a favorite. And as always, the service... More
