Description: You Can't Fake Fresh® - that's not just our tagline, it is the core value of the family owned and operated Pinchers Crab Shacks.Fresh is everything to a seafood restaurant, especially ours, and we try our best to deliver fresh seafood to your table each and every visit. Local fishermen and crabbers leave our shores daily and guide their boats out into the Gulf of Mexico to fish on behalf of Pinchers. They return each night with the best that the Gulf has to offer. They bring this precious catch to us and are one of the primary reasons for our success.In 2007, we purchased the Island Crab Company on Pine Island to serve as a fresh seafood facility for our restaurants. By having our own local facility, we can deliver fresh fish and shellfish to the table faster and fresher – whether its Grouper, Blue Crab, Stone Crab or some of the wonderful fish that you'll see highlighted as specials of the day.Local Fisherman fish Local Waters for a Local Restaurant. You can't get a more Southwest Florida experience than that, and that's what we mean when we say – You Can't Fake Fresh®.

We had a great time at this place, the shrimp pasta was very good but the crab Alfredo was better. The place is very bright with a childish decoration that feels warm.

My friend and I dropped into this popular fish house about 7:30 pm and were fortunate to find a small table for two; ordered a few beers, some fried shrimp, clams, calamari. The platters were plentiful and fish cooked to perfection. They allowed for a few substitutions which is always a gift to a diner. Their coleslaw was delicious, one... More

I was surprised at the selection and the freshness of the seafood at this place. Indoor and outdoor seating is available. Recommend outside since i always love dining on the patio. They buy fresh caught seafood every morning from local fisherman and they have fresh local vegtables as well. We had the hot crab and cheese dip for an appetizer... More

What a great family restaurant! Fun and great food! We have eaten here many times when visiting South Florida and have never had a bad meal. Very friendly staff and clean restaurant. I would recommend this place to anyone and tell them to get the french fries and the green beans!!

Pincher's is one of several Southwest Florida restartants in their Chain. They maintain the same standards in all locations and they also have a fresh seafood sales area. This is where your seafood meal starts!... you can choose your own fish from the chilled case if you wish. The atmosphere is very casual , fun and the staff are great....good... More

A very unique and fun restaurant with good food. I recommend the blackened mahi mahi fish on the grill. The french fries tasted homemade and the key lime pie was fair. They state that they support the local fishermen which is a very good thing. I would return.

I love fried seafood and was jazzed about getting some fried clams, shrimp and scallops. Unfortunately, at this restaurant there was no mixing. I could order an entree with any one of those, and for a dollar less than the price of a second entree I could add another item. That would be a huge amount of food. It looks... More

We've been dining a Pincher's since it was a little joint on the back side of the Bonita Shopping Center, anchored by a K-Mart. Then: Excellent quality and fair portions. Medium to large oysters on the half shell, served nicely chilled. Price for dinner, the bride and I: Average $47.00. Now: Average quality and tourist trap portions. Set a new... More
