Very nice place. Good atmosphere lots of people there but it didn't feel like it. Upscale feel to the place. Menu excellent for dinner. Lots of seafood and land lover options as well. Had the seafood strudel which was out of this world. Inside or outside seating. Good parking. Staff was good though out waitperson could have checked on us... More

This was the best meal we had on the island - husband had the swordfish, cooked well, and he said the asparagus was perfect. I ordered the cranberry salmon salad, and it was amazing! Sea salt caramel cheesecake for dessert to share - perfect decadent dessert! We arrived for dinner without reservations, but their response was "we'll find you a... More

This is our 3rd year at Cip's. We have eaten in the outdoor patio dining each time and that is very quaint. We have also had an awesome male waiter the last 2 years--so sorry I cant remember his name! The food is great--buttermilk chicken, Cobia, crab cakes were a few of our families orders and were enjoyed by all.... More

Cip's features a few soecialties of the house which are very good, if maybe a tad rich. Italian tradition to selections. Very tasty with good flavors & seasonings. One of handful of best on the island.

We are there again for lunch and are outside on a screened patio. I had a cocktail and an individual pizza. It was very good. The service was very good and we try to eat there every year

Wow! We usually don't order the same thing when we go to a new place for the first time. We are so glad we did this time because we would not have wanted to share the seafood strudel. The local chef has created a grand slam with the seafood strudel: light flaky pastry stuffed with crab, mushrooms, lobster covered in... More

My wife and I shared two different and original seafood dishes that were excellent. The porch is pretty and the grounds are very well kept. Wines are very reasonably priced. Service was a little to much on the "chummy" side, but the overall experience was great.

We were here for lunch. Prime rib sandwich back on the menue: very good (the beef broth on the side is out of this world ). Clam chowder fantastic. "Rebel Roquette" salad really nice. And that home made Key Lime Pie....... waw!! Nice wine selection too (try the Cashmere). Thank you David :-) :-)

We stopped for lunch. My wife had the Quinoa salad and I had a Ruben. Both were excellent. We started with the crab cake appetizer. Best we had ever had. Service was out of this world. We then looked at their dinner menu and decided to do dinner here. I had the buttermilk chicken with sautéed spinach and scalloped potatoes.... More

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.
