“Best Steak on the Island”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

We never miss enjoying a meal when in Sanibel at Chips Sanibel Steak House.
The most tender and well flavored steak you will ever eat, cooked to perfection.
This was our thirteenth vist to Chip's and all were equal in food and service.
Make sure you have a reservation during the high season.

“Has been consistent for years”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

We went for the early bird/fixed price$35 a plate menu. We had steaks and chicken. Everything was quite good. If you order the fillet it is small looking like 4oz.
You can't beat the price but it was disappointing that we had to ask about this specially priced menu -it wasn't volunteered by our waitress.
Dinner includes a drink, appetizer,soup or salad, an entree AND desert. The plates were filled with potato and vegetables to go with the entree.

“Something Special”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

Chip's Sanibel Steakhouse is a special treat...a more elegant dining experience compared to most of the very nice, but laid back atmosphere of most of the island restaurants. Tables are set with linen and nicer stemware and plating, but the atmosphere is not at all stuffy. Great waitstaff - very personable and attentive without being instrusive. Great steaks and fresh vegetables cooked perfectly. Beautiful plate presentations and more than generous portions. Absolutely worth the extra expense for a special night out!

“Best Special Dinner Place”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Best steaks on Island, bar none. Always take guests there for special dinners. Reservations taken and during season hard to get in. Everyone loves it.

“Sunday Brunch is a Must!”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We went to the second Sunday Brunch at Chip's Sanibel Steak House. We had a great time. The staff is friendly, attentive, and considerate. The Sunday Brunch is a new concept for Chip's. We certainly hope it catches on with the public. It has an exceptional presentation. Everyone may find many things to enjoy. The Mimosa's are quite good and "never ending." We like the decor and the ambiance. The eggs benedict were classic. The prime rib was tender and flavorful. The sausage was quite tasty. The biscuits and gravy were a treat. We could go on and on. Suffice it to say that one must go to a Sunday brunch and enjoy it. The Desserts were quite good. The cakes were light and flavorful.
