The waitstaff was very nice and friendly. The restaurant was busy but our wait wasn't long. The menu has several options. We chose the grilled fish and we weren't disappointed. Great view of the beach inside or out.

We stopped at Pincher's Crab Shack on our way back from Naples to Sanibel. We had a little wait but not bad. It was a very busy noisy place with the blowup animals, bottles, beach toys etc all over the ceiling. It was unique. The menu was good and I enjoyed the Rainbow trout. Everyone was pleased with their dinners.... More

Very nice location, good service, well overpriced. Meal was not worth over $100 spent. One dozen raw oysters, half were too small and should not have been served, there were shell fragments in the oysters, prices of dirt,. and several were not cut away from the bottom shell. The horseradish was terrible, it was very hard, had No flavor. I... More

Good food, priced in line with other restaurants in the immediate area. Good 2 for 1 drink specials throughout the day. Ate there in early evening before crowd arrived. No problem getting a table. Only negative comment would be the lack of attention from our waiter who seemed to be disinterested in waiting on our group.

The food was definitely edible, but not great. Kids eat free was a nice touch and the French fries were great and our server was excellent.

The food is always great here but maybe I should not be retired. The kids and grandkids visiting and 39.99 for a pound of crab legs and dad and grandpa buying. Whew! Give me a family discount! Sorry, but I can't do this very often.

Went here twice on a stay in Fort Myers Beach and had a great experience both times. The first time my dad and I stopped in just for drinks after golfing 9 holes. It was happy hour and we found out they had .70 wings, shrimp, and clams. We ordered a dozen clams and shrimp each and we both really... More
