“Fine Dining”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

For the third straight year, our trio (Lou, Patti & Golden Retriever Beau) enjoyed dinner here. Staff couldn't be nicer. Even Beau got treats.

“Good Food, Good Service, Good Value”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

My wife and I had the chance to sample Cips Place on our recent trip to Sanibel. Given that my wife isn't that fond of seafood and I'm allergic to shellfish, finding great cuisine on an island can be challenging. For us, Cips was just what we needed for a great dinner experience. Good variety in the menu, attentive service and a pleasant outdoor patio made for a great casual dining experience.
Oh and the price was reasonable as well.

Will definitely go back the next visit.

“What a Gem!”
Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

On our first day on the island, we stopped for lunch and had their soup and sandwich special which was delicious. Saw they had happy hour specials from 4-6 PM and decided to give them a second try. We were not disappointed, in fact, because the food was so good, we went back a third time. Portions were huge; we tried something different all three times, including salmon, tuna, buttermilk chicken and ribs. I almost didn't write this review, because I want to keep this gem a secret, but others should know how good it was. Don't pass this place up!

“Nice place”
Reviewed May 21, 2014 via mobile

We arrived just after 5:00 to find only a few cars in the lot. We were quickly seated; the place filled by the time we received our appetizer.
Menu covers the bases, with before 6:00 specials a real value. Food was delicious, fresh tasting and nicely prepared. Deserts were very good. Service from Terri was solid. Will return again,
