Our waiter, David, was brilliant....our food arrived exactly... More

Felt like having ribs, and on the menu it said root beer glazes baby back ribs. It had wonderful flavor with a slight kick from whatever spices they used. The French fries were house made and crispy just like I like them, served with house made ketchup, much better than a bottle of ketchup. Also started with sangria which was... More

Ate at Cip's twice over a 3 week stay. Excellent meals. Had the triple tail specials. Enjoyed the "casino" most. Highly recommended.

We stopped there for a late lunch/early supper (4:30PM) and got a little less than the dinner portion which was just fine for us. It was a great meal and they place started to fill up as we left, so I imagine it's a popular place.

Went last week for dinner. We started with the buffalo BBQ shrimp appetizer. It was interesting.... It was shrimp on a plate with a thick basting of BBQ sauce that was more caked on then basted. I took one bite and did not take another as the BBQ sauce overpowered the shrimp. Could not even taste the shrimp. However, I... More

We took advantage of their happy hour special and really enjoyed it. Even the kids ordered from it rather than having a kid's meal. My 10 year old had the ribs, the 7 year old had rigatoni bolognese and I had the ginger shrimp stir fry. They were all delicious. My husband had the triple tail special, which was also... More

We have yet to be disappointed at Cip's! Food quality and presentation are always excellent! They have indoor, covered outdoor, and outdoor screened dining areas. On our recent visit, my wife and I both tried the specials. Her's was a big ribeye that was outstanding, and mine was a Tripletail fish that was a first for me and is now... More
