Meals were outstanding - the acoustics made normal conversation difficult inside. Outside seats were all taken. Reservations outside would be my recommendation. Very attentive wait staff, and helpful hostess.

Try to grab a table on the patio or at the window, which overlook lovely garden. Food was good. We tried the ribeye and it was cooked to perfection. Their scalloped potatoes are the best I have ever tried. And key lime pie was one of the best we have found.

Chicken Caesar salad with minimal dressing. Had to request extra. Chicken breast was overcooked and dry with no seasoning. Fish tacos were average in flavor but a little overpriced. Grilled shrimp salad contained 4 well prepared shrimp. Dressing was to have been a mango vinaigrette but just tasted vinegary. No rolls or bread was served with the salads.

My wife and I had dinner here during a trip to Sanibel. I had the Crab Cake dinner and my wife had the Salmon. Both were very good. The waitress was very friendly, but the sound level was very high. I finished with Key Lime Pie, which was not as good as I have had at other places.

We took two friends to lunch at Cip's - the first time for all of us. We opted to sit outside to enjoy the greenery and the experience was worth it, especially when it began pouring with rain! Service was prompt and friendly. All lunch choices were enjoyed: crab cake brioche, reuben sandwich, sloppy joe and salad with salmon. We... More

We come back to Cip's every year when we are here. They never disappoint. We like to sit outside in the garden area. They made a special effort to make this possible for us. We came early as they take reservations but you can sneak in if you get there before 5:00. Everyone is so solicitous. My husband really likes... More

My wife and I enjoyed lunch at Cip's Place on Periwinkle on the last full day of our March 2015 vacation on Sanibel. I absolutely love Cip's Sloppy Joe sandwich--and this year's rendition did not disappoint. My wife had a very nice shrimp salad that she enjoyed, as well. We found the staff to be very friendly and engaging, as... More

We stopped in to Cips for lunch on our way to our Captiva Island vacation and it was wonderful! The service was excellent and the food was great. My wife had the crab cake and I had the prime rib sandwich that was on special. Both came with Cips chips which were awesome. We were seated on the back patio... More
