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®.

Had the fried shrimp dinner...it was good. Hubby had the grouper...it too was good. Just not GREAT like at other local places. So not a bad place, just not as good as others. Great service though.

You won't find special food or romantic tables. Merely bar food and great service. All at a reasonable price. Florida scene with a fun feel.

Great restaurant for the family earlybird specials and oysters on the half shell were inexpensive during happy hour. A great value and fresh local fish as well. Highly recommended

Try the crab cheese dip. It was good. My crab cakes and fries were average. I thought prices were a bit high for what we got to eat.

The oysters from the raw bar were excellent: large, sweet and so fresh you could taste the ocean. My grouper salad was filling and the grouper was a generous portion and cooked perfectly. Everyone was pleased with their dinner. However we had to remind the server three times that we were missing melted butter, and three times that we would... More

We are from Kentucky and my mom wanted oysters so my cousin took us to pinchers. My mom was so happy. I had coconut shrimp and hushpuppies. It was great.

The new Pinchers next to the Edison Estates is very nice. The view of the river is beautiful. The food is very good, I just wish I wasn't tempted to eat fried food! It is a little pricey for what you get.

This restaurant is at the yacht harbor of Ft. Myers with a great view of yachts and the bridge over the river Caloosahatchee. The restaurant does not look up to much with bare tables and kitchen roll and a bucket in the centre, but the food is out of this world! Choose from various seafood platter delights. Try the half...

The food was very good as was the service ! Our beer (2 for 1 special) was not icy cold as we like it so a disappointment there. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed ! We would go here again for sure. Had a shrimp burrito, very generous portion and quite good !
