Don't let the online pictures give this away. The inside of Pincher's looks just like many of the gulf coast eateries from the past. My wife and I had a late lunch there after a day at Fort Myers Beach. She had the peel and eat shrimp (they call it rough shrimp I believe), I had the fried shrimp. Both... More

We stopped here to eat back in March. Close to the beach and our hotel. Cute atmosphere. Kid friendly. Food was great and we received large portions. We will be back.

Good crab alfredo and great happy hour deals. I liked the atmosphere, kind of like a Joe's Crab Shack. Casual. Great service!

Just off the island and kids eat free! Food was good and big menu. Just on St Carlos Pass. I had the coconut shrimp and it was delicious.

I'll preface this with saying that my wife really liked her dish, and the fact that both my 2 and 4 year had free dishes since there was a kids eat free (with purchase of..) - which was actually an ok value. Those are the only reasons I'm not marking this review as "Poor." But really, my fish dish was... More

We visited Pinchers during our weekend getaway over Labor Day weekend. We walked in and and were seated immediately. The restaurant was busy but ran well. Service was excellent and the manager stopped by to check on us too. Our food was very good. I had blackened tilapia and grilled shrimp. My husband had blue crab. My daughter had snow... More

Went with 1 year old and it was loud enough that we could have a discussion but she didn't disturb any neighbors. Very cool and relaxed atmosphere, our waiter Eric was awesome. Fish and chips were excellent. One of the best I've had! Very lightly fried versus New England version. Not a must visit, but we definitely will be back.

We went during Happy Hour- clams are 70 cents each. Corn chowder was good, coconut fried shrimp average, and they had a special- rock shrimp for $18 which was OK but not nearly the half pound they advertise. I get rock shrimp in Southern FL all the time and it's typically $15/16 for twice the amount. Expansive seating, nice ambiance... More

Good food, good location, decent prices. Servers were attentive. Had 2 for 1 drinks for the dads and kids ate free. Kids loved the hush puppies for an appetizer.
