My family decided to try Pinchers and it was good. I didn't like the Conch fritters but my Seafood Rangoon was delicious. Their food was good also, they had no complaints.

Make sure you get the crab & cheese dip...varied menu made everyone happy, 2 for 1 drinks are never a bad thing. Serve was exceptional, & they didn't flip when my 4 year old spilled her Sprite everywhere. We will be back!

To me living in Indiana this is comparable to a Chilis but alittle better with great seafood options! It's clean, kid friendly and the seafood is great. Our waitresses have always been great!

Awesome food. We had Calamari, Snow Crab, and a Shrimp Scampi with Angel Hair Pasta. Everything was tasty. We arrived about 1hr before the restaurant closed and wasn't rushed or anything.

Feels a lot like south Florida keys like. The crab is great and it comes out and gets dumped right on your table. There are buckets of beer, tables inside and out We have been here several times and it is generally requested by the kid each time we are here in Bonita springs.

I had a friend visiting from California and he wanted seafood. I have had dinner at other locations in the past and decided to give it a try. We had raw oysters and buffalo wings as appetizers. They were great. I ordered a grouper blackened platter for dinner. Unfortunately my fish was "very fishy" tasting and couldn't eat it. They... More

Consistanly good food. Soft shell crab, Fried shrimp or oyster baskets are great, as is smoked fish dip or raw oysters. Although a lot of food is fried, it is never over breaded or greasy. We've been eating there for maybe 15 years. Reliably good.

Description
You Can't Fake Fresh® - that's not just our tagline, it is the core value of the family owned and operated Pinchers Crab Shacks.Fresh is everything to a seafood restaurant, especially ours, and we try our best to deliver fresh seafood to your table each and every visit. Local fishermen and crabbers leave our shores daily and guide their boats out into the Gulf of Mexico to fish on behalf of Pinchers. They return each night with the best that the Gulf has to offer. They bring this precious catch to us and are one of the primary reasons for our success.In 2007, we purchased the Island Crab Company on Pine Island to serve as a fresh seafood facility for our restaurants. By having our own local facility, we can deliver fresh fish and shellfish to the table faster and fresher – whether its Grouper, Blue Crab, Stone Crab or some of the wonderful fish that you'll see highlighted as specials of the day.Local Fisherman fish Local Waters for a Local Restaurant. You can't get a more Southwest Florida experience than that, and that's what we mean when we say – You Can't Fake Fresh®.
