“Reliably Good Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

I've been to Pincher's three times. Twice in Sarasota, and this was my first time at the store in Fort Myers. We were meeting family who had been vacationing in Naples, and we chose Pincer's because we knew we could count on a decent seafood meal. Pincher's is not fancy. It's casual and relaxed. My wife ordered the crab cake sandwich, and I ordered the grouper reuben. We cut our sandwiches in half and shared. The crab cake was great. The grouper reuben was good. I'm just not sold on the idea of a grouper reuben. I love a grouper sandwich, and I love a reuben, but I'm not in love with a grouper reuben. However, that's just me. The fish in my sandwich was great.

If you are looking for decent casual seafood and don't want to spend a fortune, give Pincher's a try.

“Stopped for Lunch while shopping”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

I loved the Atmosphere, 2 for 1 Happy Hour!!! The Margaritas were the best part. The food was good but not knock your socks off, a little expensive. Service was great.
