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.

Nice restaurant - quick service and delicious food. $5 happy hour appetizer prices. Our waitress was very friendly and had great support from other servers and the kitchen staff.

Located in a resort town, it is able to handle large groups, efficienty and still provide great service and very good food. The wait staff really tries to make sure you get what you want when you want it. A diverse menu that includes all the favorites you would expect in a resort town in on the west side of Florida. Good seafood and plenty of choices for the non fish eaters. our grandkids enjoyed the choice on the children's menu. The friendly owners are on site and make sure things go well. A very pleasant dinning experience for the 12 of us. They went out of their way to handle our large group. A definite 4 star place for families.

Most boring review ever. Best thing about the meal was the friendly food server. My pasta shells stuffed with crabmeat were good, but nothing special. My wife had the southern fried chicken and it was good. The bread in the breadbasket was doughy.

It was off season and we went after the evening rush at 7:30, and had a veranda table that was very pleasant. Decor and setting were elegant but not stuffy, and prices were excellent and not higher than "more casual' places such as the Lazy Flamengo. Servers were extremely nice and pleasant, we enjoyed all our orders of appetizers & entrees (Poke Martini, Peel & Eat Shrimp, and a few more). Server recomm a very good white wine with citrus accent. Alas no room for dessert.

What a nice dinner experience. The waiter for extemely helpful and the food promptly served. We shared the lobster bisque and the crab cakes. Both nicely prepared. I had the skirt steak and my boyfiend had the tenderloin both cooked perfectly. We shared a nice bottle of wine. All the wines looked to be reasonably priced. I was surprised by a birthday dessert that was presented by the staff. It was very nicely decorated and personalized. I would highly recommend this place! Nice outdoor seating.
