We stopped for lunch after kayaking. Parking is free and plentiful on this side of the bridge in to Fort Meyers beach. The hot crab and cheese dip was extremely good. I really enjoyed the fish and chips and the cole slaw was outstanding. Blackened shrimp were good and there are numerous menu choices for how to have your shrimp... More

Stopped by for an early dinner. Was quickly seated. They have 2 for 1 on several of their drinks. Got the mussels as an appetizer and they came out great, could have use a bit more bread for dipping with it. Had the blackened shrimp. Was very tasty and flavorful. Ordered a Hurricane but they did not know how to... More

Just eaten here and the food was wonderful; the shrimp were so fresh they were almost jumping off the plate. Mahi mahi was also gorgeous, firm and meaty. The two-for-one drinks offer seems to be all day every day and works out really well. The server Olyana was friendly and helpful and the other staff were all smiles despite us... More

Large selection and reasonable prices. Always take family here as there is something for everyone... Even those that do not like fish. Nice portions.

Pincher's had a good deal for food during happy hour. We went with a dozen oysters, wings, clams and shrimp and a side salad (See photo). Pros-the wings, oysters and clams (albeit very small) were outstanding. I ended up getting two more dozen oysters. Cons - shrimp and the waiter. Not sure how they prepared it, but it appeared they...

Great place to have lunch and/or dinner. My husband always has the oysters on a half shell and crab clays. I get their fried shrimp. We have never been disappointed in whatever we've ordered.

Went last night with friends, overpriced, lousy food. We've been to several of their locations but it just isn't the same. Lousy presentation...our friends had grouper, no garnish, nothing...just a hunk of fish on a plate. I had boiled shrimp that tasted like they'd been in the oil spill. And the oysters tasted "off". Key lime pie tasted frozen like... More

My husband wanted some crab before we left Florida so our last night here we went to pinchers. We decided on pinchers because the menu we looked up online included blue crab. He had never had it but wanted to try it. We were seated immediately by the window overlooking the boats. Great view. Our waiter Erick was great. Very... More
