Happy, Happy Hour

Was with a group of 12 cruising the river when we made a stop for Happy Hour. We had a good time out on the deck. The oysters were sweet and the 2 for one drinks were a bonus. I realize this is part of a chain but they seem to be doing things right.

Great night spot! The band is fun, the view is awesome!, the Pincher's claws are great too. The only down side is the limited beer selection. I suggest sitting away from the foliage, sometimes the No see um bugs drift in.

We went to Pinchers yesterday afternoon around 3 pm. It was quiet. I had Blue crab (came in a martini glass and there was lettuce underneath it) and my husband had a bowl of seafood chowder. We had a small mug of beer each which is supposedly 2 for the price of one, but they charge $6 for a small... More

We love Pinchers. They have great drink specials and bar food. This place is very popular and always crowded with people also wanting to enjoy the bands. Sometimes it is standing room only. It is right on the beach and provides an awesome Gulfview. It doesn't get any better than that. The service is normally good but if the place... More

Pincers is a chain scattered around South West Florida. They do not disappoint. Drink specials, fresh seafood platters and sandwiches, nice service and a view of the ocean, yes , but in the distance. It's away from the heart of Ft Myers Beach, the crowd a little older 40+, and not many young children, so not recommended for the little... More

I love this place! Great food! Fresh seafood and awesome side options like a great broccoli salad and fresh green beans cooked so delicious! Live music! Beach view! Two for one drink specials! Dave, our waiter, and managers (Ben Riley & Buffy) came by many times to make sure we were happy. And they told us they now have their... More

The food was pretty good, the drink specials were great. The Bucket deals were ok, except they wouldn't let you get margaritas in your bucket. I went with 2 other 50plus year old women. The band we listened too both nights were great. Tons of people our age and almost not enough room to dance. The waiters were hopping. WE... More

The crowd at night is a little older but they seem to have a lot of fun. The selection of appetizers and main meals were good and the drinks were not weak.
