Best steakhouse on Sanibel
Food is always delicious, never disappointed. Very quant small restaurant but very pretty inside. Drinks are a little scimpy but dinner is not. Expensive but you do get a wonderful meal for the money. Casual attire is ok but I prefer to dress nice when I go out.

A great night out on vacation.
It has been 10 years since we were last here, but not much has changed (which is good).
Although we were 30 minutes late (traffic)on a busy night, they were able to promptly get us a decent table. The server was unfailingly polite and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our steaks (filet mignon & NY Strip) and starters (Ceasar Salad & Chicken Noodle Soup)as well as the wines. The mashed potatos were heavily pureed and seasoned, which drew a mixed review at our table. Overall, though the food was worth the price.
Ambiance was a little dark/dated, which stands out on Sanibel. Important to note: We brought a four year old child and everyone was very welcoming and accommodating. That made for a far more enjoyable experience. We'll be b

My entree was overcooked and the waiter immediately corrected the problem.loved the pillows at our table but we didn't like that we could hear the conversations at the tables next to us. We felt like we were eating with strangers.

Try the Parmesian Crusted Sea Bass!
I went in planning to have lobster or steak and something attracted my wife and I to the Parmesian Crusted Chilean Sea Bass. It was easily in the top 5 meals that I have ever had. It was incredible! I hope to experience it again.

Good for an Island experience
It's as good as your will find on the island, but if it were on the mainland it would be just average. It's not a fancy steakhouse. It's on Sanibel which means old outdated island decoration. The service was really good and food was good overall but not on par with Ruth Chris or Morton's. If you have ever been to one of the fancy steakhouses on a cruise ships, it's more on that level.

fantastic dining experience
Exploring our new Island home for great eats. The wifey and I were in the mood for meat so made a reservation at chips. Great staff, Jay our waiter was awesome and very attentive. Had the 16oz ribeye and the wife had a steak special dish. We were very pleased with our experience.

Food was great, everything
Food was great, everything was cooked well and full of flavor. Service was good, too. Only downside would be the aesthetics, especially on the outside. Not much of a view while dining either.

Excellent dining experience
My wife and I were in Sanibel for our 25th Anniversary and selected the Sanibel Steakhouse for dinner. The food, service, & ambiance were absolutely perfect. We couldn't have selected a better place. It was quiet and relaxing - the food was excellent. We were not at all rushed and were able to thoroughly enjoy our meals.

..we were not disappointed. I've been dining here for years and have always been well-pleased.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was cooked perfectly, the server was very pleasant and attentive, but not overbearing where she was at our table all the time. The time between the courses was sufficient so that you had time to enjoy your food and not feel like you were rushed to finish the one course because another one was being brought to the table. Have already recommended to family and friends. We also enjoyed the early-bird special. Wonderful price for what you get.

Wonderful dining experience
We chose to dine at Chip's Sanibel Steakhouse to celebrate our 34th anniversary and we are very happy that we did. Our team of servers were very friendly and professional, explaining the evenings specials, regular menu items and the wine selection. I chose the Mussels appetizer special and my wife selected the Shrimp Cocktail. For entrees, my wife had the Prime Rib 12 oz with baked potato and I had the Rib Eye with with garlic mashed potatoes. Everything was excellent
When making the reservation, I let them know that it was our anniversary. Inside our menus, we found a printed page wishing us a Happy Anniversary - a very nice touch that we appreciated very much. Also, we were treated to a very nice cheesecake dessert lit with a candle.

We celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary while on Sanibel Island and wanted a nice, romantic restaurant to celebrate. Chip's Sanibel Steakhouse was the perfect fit. Very nice environment, fantastic first class service and great food. I had ordered a vase of roses to be delivered to the restaurant ahead of time and they had the arrangement waiting for us on our table. Our waiter Danny was super attentive and friendly. They made our anniversary a memorable one.

Special occasion treat
Great pains were taken to make our special occasion unforgettable. We were greeted by name as we arrived and even had a visit from the chef to our table. Our waiter could not have been more attentive. He described our choices which was so very helpful. Our food arrived hot, and attractively plated. My filet medallions were done to perfection as was my husband's steak. The baked potatoes seemed to be "old" but we overlooked that as everything else was outstanding. We were surprised with a complimentary dessert of fabulous molten lava cake and ice cream. The presentation which included candles, was like pictures you see in a book. We were impressed with the attention to detail during our visit.

Did not disappoint.
Came for the filet and it was awesome. Was prepared medium as ordered. Red wine demi~glaze was perfect as were the baked potato and veggies.

Chip's was delicious! I got the NY strip and it was cooked exactly to how I ordered it and great flavor. The prime rib which my boyfriend got was amazing too. I'd recommend the chocolate lava cake for dessert.
