We arrived during happy hour and shared with the waitress that it was my wife's birthday, she very nicely ushered us to a great table on the back patio. Tasty apps and fun atmosphere!

Sat outside on this warm December evening and had a great meal. Fair service. They were quite busy, so it could be why getting our check took a while. Would definitely return.

My wife and I enjoyed happy hour a number of times during our recent visit to the island. The salmon dinner special ordered before 6 pm at $12.00 is outstanding .

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.
