Crab Shack, Baby!

The atmosphere in Pincher's is festive-there are all sorts of nautical and marine life decorations hanging on the walls and ceiling. It has a crab shack feel to it. They had a two-for-one drink special the night we went. The Margaritas were watery and served in tall glasses, not margarita stemware... read more

This chain does a great job in making you feel like it's not a chain. Food is good. Nice décor. Enjoyed it.

I make a point to eat at Pincher's every time I am in the Naples area. Unfortunately, tonight my Crab leg platter plate was horrible. First my snow crab legs was served cold and the 3 crab clusters were under sized not a pound as stated on the menu. When I mentioned this to the managers, he was surprised at... More

We stopped by for lunch today because we had a coupon for a free drink and it was across the street from our hotel. The positives, Ashley was very nice and the crab legs and crab dip were good. The negatives, it's OMG expensive for what you get, they wouldn't give us the (highly touted, on every sign) free kids... More

When visiting the North Naples Florida area Pinchers in Bonita Springs is a must stop for 2 for 1 drinks all day everyday. The 70 cent wings, clams, oysters during happy hr from 3-6pm can't be beat. The draft beer is roof of the mouth cold. They offer weekly specials if you sign up on the email list. Best of... More

Our server was great and the atmosphere is fun. The food was a little pricey. The crab dip was delicious. There is a nice patio area for dining outside.

Watered down drinks, yucky fries, pleasant service....expecting too much from a chain? Too many choices of places to eat- need to improve to make food desirable to return. So much more expected for a "fresh" seafood place! Fish tacos were forgettable.

No matter which location you choose, you're going to find the atmosphere funky, the service friendly and the food always fresh. This isn't gourmet, the is good local seafood and its well priced.
