Not impressed. There is something to be said for the great location but we were barely attended to by our waiter once he realized my underage daughter wouldn't be drinking and we weren't going all out with big entrees and dessert. We had asked to change tables to get a better view of Duval street and the hostess was the... More

First they were out of their signature soup at noon. Then the chopped salad arrived without blue cheese crumbles and when I asked the waitress she said it didn't come with it which both my friend and I clearly remembered on the menu. So finally the manager showed up and said he would take my drinks off the tab--never happened.... More

We were tired and did not have the inclination to walk around checking the menus on the many restaurants on Duval Street---- our mistake! Decided to try Pinchers. Our waiter was the best part of the meal! I had an appetizer that was a small crab dish with way too much wine and butter and a Caesar salad. The salad... More

Downstairs at Pinchers... music good but food another story!!! First the waitress forgets to put our order in. 30 minutes she comes to advise us of her mistake and apologizes. When food comes in fries are burnt and fish is overcooked so hardly edible. Manager apologizes too, reduces the price of meal but by then evening ruined. Would not go... More

We were attracted by the promise of fresh crab. Beware the balcony tables as the birds roost just above you..... food was not great, crab rangons made me a bit nauseous, so much fried food, crab mixed with cream cheese to stretch it out I suppose, lost the taste of crab. Took ages for the food to be served to... More

I was on a mission. I was going to eat the Conch Fritters at every restaurant that I could. I tried six different types of Conch Fritters. This one took the cake. The atmosphere was a place with good food and a good place for drinking and just to hang out with friends. It took a while to get the... More

We love stone crab claws and are here on vacation. This is near where we stayed and recommended. It's family owned and not a chain but I had noticed there were some in the Ft Myers area too. Went in at happy hour and it was 2 for 1 beers! We ordered the stone crab claw dinner to share. It... More

Portions very big, quantity over quality. I ordered calamari and had no taste at all. We asked server and she didn't warned on big plates and suggested a starter which was the best and only thing we should have ordered.

We went here to have some wings and beer on Duval Street! The food quality was awesome and we got a table outside on the second floor balcony with an awesome view!
