We got a outside table just as the sun went down and it is a great location and atmosphere. Our waiter was courteous and quick and was never fare away. The food was quite good however the coffee, if you can call it coffee, was so weak that it only tasted like hot water with a light brown colour. When... More

Tamee welcomed us warmly and served our wine quickly. It was interesting watching her set up the bar and prepare for a very busy evening. She told us she serves the bar and also makes all the drinks for the whole restaurant. That evening they already had close to 200 reservations for dinner! Cip's rocks!! Even during season rush, we...

Returned to Cips recently, worth the trip through tons of traffic. Fresh food and the server couldn't be nicer or more thorough. Best steamed clams on our whole trip to Florida! Do yourself a favor and try the Grouper bites...will definitely be going back.

The bartender was Tamee, she took our drink order & brought in a timely time The rest of the service was given when she finished what she was doing. We have never been in a up scale bar that pours (white & red) wine ahead of being ordered. Red wine bottles were uncorked & recorded for fast service when ordered.... More

Cip's Place is tucked away in a shopping center on Sanibel's main road. Blink and you could miss it. Food is a mix of seafood and American fare. You can sit inside or outside on the deck/patio. Deck faces the parking lot but it's still very nice. There is a small bar inside and ample seating. We ordered the crab... More

Everything about our experience was a "10"! We were greeted by the owner, seated on a beautiful screened porch and waited on by an outstanding server. Top all of that with delicious "early bird" drinks and dinner (REASONABLY priced!) and you have a perfect dining experience. Hint: yummy scalloped potatoes and fried chicken. We will definitely return if given the... 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.
