Cip’s has matured from its beginnings into a fine dining establishment. It is the best adventure on Sanibel. Make sure you splurge and order the upscale specials which take full advantage of the island location and locally caught and grown seafood and produce. The Chef...More

It's been several years since we've been to Cip's Place. We were not disappointed. It was hard to decide what to order, so many things looked delicious. We split a rebel roquette salad which consisted of arugula and mixed greens topped with candied pecans, bleu...More

I visited yesterday with my Husband and Mother in law and had an amazing experience. David was our server and was friendly and had great recommendations. The swordfish sandwich was perfect and I can’t stop thinking about the house made chips.

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.
