Had the oyster happy hour, alittle small but great taste. Wife enjoy her crablegs. Tried the key lime pie but didn't make her cut. Their own hot sauce was great, definitely hot but good flavor.

Heading into Ft. Myers Beach, we were caught in a terrible traffic jam (accident made the news for two days), and decided that lunch was better than sitting in the car. What a good call! We were seated promptly, but then the crowd of ten tables overwhelmed the five servers. Our server, Celina, was very friendly and attentive. I ordered... More

But a little overpriced we though for what it was... I will say the French fries are freak'n great.. We are locals and will most likely... More

Good food in a comfortable atmosphere. I had the Dungeness Crab and the Crab & Corn Chowder soup. Both were phenomenal! My wife had the Lump Crab Alfredo and Clam Chowder soup. She said that was good as well. We came here for dinner a once a year prior to this visit, and it ended up that we had the... More

We made a late night stop after spending the afternoon at Fort Meyers Beach. The kids were amazed that they could color right on the paper on our table. It kept them busy while we waited. I ordered a cup of crab corn chowder based on reading other reviews and wasn't disappointed...and I don't ever order soups. My son (9)... More

I visit Pinchers at least once each time I come to Fort Myers Beach. They are part owners in the Island Crab Company on Pine Island, so their shrimp are local, fresh, and delicious! Their fries are cut to order and also great. This location looks out over Pelican Bay, so you can watch the pelicans, herons, and egrets from... More

We stopped in after a long day of golfing so were both thirsty and hungry. this is a chain that is throughout southwest florida apparently so I guess they have a successful formula. seems a bit pricey however for the crabs and shrimp...coming from up north I would think prices would be lower....but except for happy hour shellfish specials (60...

We have driven by this place each time we visit FMB. We decided to try it out one evening and were we surprised! The Black Grouper dinner was the best ever!! My wife loved the clam chowder and even went there the next night to get another serving of the chowder for take out! Will definitely stop here on our... More
