“The new Crab Cake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

While revisiting Sanibel, I was at first disappointed to learn that CIP's no longer served the chopped chicken salad, one of my favorites. After reviewing the menu, I decided to try the new Crab Cake Sandwich. GREAT choice. Seasoned very creatively with a key lime dressing and absolutely delicious. CIPS Chips are also a favorite. And as always, the service was efficient, courteous and friendly. Can't wait to see what my next visit will bring.

“Good meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Enjoyed a good meal here, dined outside (mixed feelings about this....when the sun started setting the mosquitoes started biting)

Overall an average experience, family had mixed reviews of the food (from great to average). Service was courteous but a little slow.

Nothing really negative, just not the highlight of our trip.

“Good meal overall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

We went to Cips for a late lunch/early dinner during our recent trip to Sanibel Island. They had a great happy hour special and all of the food was really good. Every time we drove by there was hardly anyone in the parking lot and there was only 2 other tables occupied when we were there. The service was great and the food was good.

“Great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

We arrived without reservations for dinner on Saturday night. No wait! That kind of scared us but the experience was very nice. We both enticed our selections! And atmosphere. Waiter was very slow, but hey we're on vacation! Dress was all over the board but I felt very comfortable in shorts and dress shirt.
