Description: 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.

This is a fun place with a creative bar and lovely outdoor dining. Calamari was quite good and everyone enjoyed their entrees. A medium priced restaurant.

Went to Cip's last night (Jan. 17, 2012) for dinner just before 7pm. Seating was slow with a dining area over half empty. Our menues were delivered and the server took our drink orders which were delivered promptly along with some bread. After a wait of about 8 minutes the server returned to take our orders. It was 22 minutes later by my watch that the food arrived. During that time the server did not come back around. The food was well prepared and of good quality which I expected due to the high prices asked. During most of the meal live music was played by a performer which made conversation a little difficult.
The service was very poor which accounts mostly for my low score!

Great options for vegetarians! While they don't have a vegetarian menu. They created an awesome stir-fry and pasta dish for us. There salads are amazing, the "rebel" especially!

Spent 8 nights in Sanibel and went to Cip's for three dinners. Each time we were greeted cordially and served with the upmost attention. The menu provided a good selection and variety at reasonable prices. The food was well prepared and graciously served - even when my wife requested an alternative sauce on a menu item. We will certainly be back again when we return to Sanibel. We especially enjoyed sitting outside on the heated veranda,
