Kids love it every time

The kids always love to go to Pincher's. It is a really cool atmosphere. I love the different choices of seafood. The seafood is always good. The service has always been good too. We have been 6 or 7 times in the past 4 years. We enjoy the 2 for 1 drinks. The kids like how they can color on... read more

We were visiting the Fort Myers area and wanted to get some seafood so we tried Pinchers. We got seated right away even though it was 6:30pm. Our server was excellent. She was very honest with me when I had questions about the menu and made good recommendations. Our drinks were kept full. We have 3 kids and all of... More

Pinchers is a local seafood chain in the Fort Meyrs/Napkes area and we have visited several of them in the three years we have lived here. On this occasion, I was with two girlfriends from out of town who wanted good seafood and a goof happy hour. You can't beat Pinchers on both counts. Their "happy hour" consist of half... More

We had gone to Pinchers just 2 weeks prior and were delighted with the size and weight of their steamed blue crabs. We returned and I ordered the same and found them about half the size. I expressed my dismay to our waitress who got the manager to come over. She was not very empathetic and said basically- that is... More

Visited Pincher's after it was suggested by our front desk personnel. The food was great and the service (Margarita) was excellent. A great place!

Ordered grouper and the fish was very thin and mostly dark fleshed and dry. I asked the waitress and she got a manager who didn't look, but just said " its grouper " and walked away. I think it was tilapia.

This is a great place to eat. The server, Margarita, was very friendly and helpful. The jumbo crab cake and grouper platter were both excellent!

We've been visiting the Naples/Fort Myers area for years. This was our first visit to any Pinchers. Greeted warmly when arriving and seated immediately. Very large restaurant and even though it was crowded it was very roomy. My wife and I both ordered clam chowder which was very good. Fried shrimp platter with garlic smashed potatoes and cole slaw was... More

I had the crab and corn chowder for a app and it was great. My wife enjoyed her shrimp po boy. The grouper was good just wish I would have gotten the snapper after seeing it was fresh and local, maybe next time. Kids eat free!!
