Great food and nice view of the water. First place we ate after getting off the airplane and it was very food. LOVED the broiled scallops in butter sauce. Kids smiley fries are only thing that were not cared for, kind of like mashed potatoes deep fried. My little one would have much rather had the regular fries.

Great menu with excellent selection for the price. It's a busy place for obvious reasons, good food, great service, and just about anything you could want in the seafood world, and then some. Our wonderful waitress Amy was very helpful in suggesting things since this was our first visit. We started out just going in for drinks and an appetizer,... More

Nice restaurant on the way to Fort Myers Beach. Husband had scallops that he said were great....sister in law had crab leg....she loved them. I'm not a seafood eater so I indulged in chicken parm and pasta....it was very good. The orange mojito was delicious! Next to an area where fishing tours come in....fun to watch!

First and last time. My wife and I both had the soft shell crab dinner-Sautéed... Sau-no!! Love crab, Not a big "sautéed" eater but go away from fried. This came in a small dish, one crab, that looked like he had a really bad ending. Menu warned "you have to be a special sort of foodie to order soft shell... More

We apologize for the dining experience you had with us, the soft shell crab is definitely not for everyone. No excuses on the flat beer however, we will look into this further and make the necessary adjustments. We hope to see you again soon! More

Stop here for lunch and to continue my seafood fix. Food was good and reasonably priced with a good selection. But the best of all was the KEY LIME PIE for dessert! The pie was the best I've ever had (with the exception of the Key Lime Pie factory in Key West.

We've been to Pinchers one time while vacation at Fort Myers Beach. Overall it was a good experience. The kids had fun, the restaurant decor was clean and neat, the staff was friendly, and the food was good. We weren't wowed by the food but it wasn't bad.

Went there twice on this trip - stone crab was terrific. Kids meals are free, which is a bonus. 2 for 1 drinks. No complaints here. We liked all the food but definitely recommend sticking with fresh fish!

Nice place to go for some place different yet the same. Food was good, but not anything special. Raw oysters were local and fresh. Service was good and prices were reasonable.
