A good place for family casual dining on the waterfront

We had dinner here midweek. It was not crowded. We sat inside and listened to a guitarist play beach music. Our server Joe did a nice job. We had 2 for one cocktails (they are 2/1 all day long), clam chowder, calamari, and grouper bites. All were served at the same time as we requested. All were... read more

We wanted some crab and a variety of seafood. Pinchers had great all-day happy hour drink specials and their was a huge variety of food on the menu. The Beach Bread as an appetizer was fantastic. I had the Snow Crab, very reasonably priced and good. Our server was Eric, he was very attentive and friendly. We will certainly visit... More

I chose the chicken tacos and they were delicious! Their hush puppies are great! I'm not sure what the sauce was with the hush puppies, but we loved it! We honestly weren't crazy about the baked beans, they were good--but we are accustom to southern style, which are sweeter and these had more of a chili taste...still good though. The... More

Great food for a great stay at Cape Coral! I've lost track how many full size key lime pies my husband has purchased from this place. It's that good. Fish is fresh. Pretty much everything is delicious. Will be back whenever we visit Florida.

WOW! Those were some of the worst drinks I have ever had...and for what they cost ($5.75) with no alcohol, mostly ice and water...it was a very, VERY poor deal. Waitress seemed unhappy to work there. Don't waste your time or money.

Visited while on vacation to Ft Myers beach. Had lunch with the fam, shrimp scampi was wonderful, grilled shrimp darn good, wife had ribs and said they were great. Milkshakes on the other hand were not so good. Prices are fair. Service was good when you could find the server, she didn't check back until we were almost finished, which... More

We were recommended to try Pinchers crab shack by a few locals and it was great! Food is superb and service is okay. We went twice in a week and our customer service the first time was not great, but the second time was much better. This is the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. For... More

We were looking for Crab claws! Every meal my granddaughter would ask for crab claws. Not yet! I would tell her. Finally - we found them. She ate 5 and said ok - I'm done. May be that was the good thing! I thought they were ery good with the parmesan topping sauted / cooked in butter. I had the... More
