We had grouper tacos and ribs and they were both very tasty. The fresh cut fries were awesome. HOWEVER, It really bothered me when a group of four older people came with their poodle and sat it on the chair at the table next to them. Is that not a health code violation? Not sure I will be back.

My husband and I both ordered fish. He had tile fish, I had snapper. Yuck! Bland, boring & dry. Even his garlic mashed potatoes were bland. The french fries were really delicious, but that was the only thing that was good. Maybe the crab is good. Won't be returning

Very casual, and the food is excellent. Pinchers is a chain, but they do manage to get a very local feel. Definitely recommend.

New to the area and we found a GEM in Pincher's. We ordered Shrimp, fried and broiled. Both were very tasty. The salad was good and fresh. The wait staff was friendly.

This is a fun, mostly open-air restaurant. It's decorated like an old Florida fish house. Very casual, and appears to be kid-friendly. I'm not much for crab, so I usually get the grouper or Mahi Mahi. Last time I got the grouper tacos and they were very good. Portions are plentiful, and reasonably priced for the Naples area. Beers are... More

A fun, delicious family restaurant. We've never had a bad meal there. Especially enjoy the crab clusters, but all meals are good. Good service, not too expensive. Our grandkids love going.

We are new to the area and have stopped for lunch, dinner and to just purchase some fresh seafood. Have enjoyed both inside and outside seating, and the service has been very good every time we have been to this location. Much better than the Ft Myers beach location was. We will see you again in the late fall when... More

Interesting place. You can eat inside our outside. They put a roll of white paper on your table for your table cloth. The furniture is picnic table and benches. We ate outside this time.

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®.
