Description: 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! Pinchers - Florida Seafood, Florida Style. 13 Locations throughout SW Florida!

Stopped here after visiting Thomas Edison Estates. It's a fun atmosphere casual atmosphere. I had the Oyster PoorBoy. It was good. They have al kinds of seafood dishes. You can sit inside or outside. The outside area is covered and looks out onto the river. Drinks were good. Service was great.

This restaurant is in a great location - right on the riverfront, but that is about it. The food was so-so, the prices were high and it was a "tourist trap".

Absolutely worst seafood ever. Clam strips, crab cake, mussels were basically inedible. Don’t waste the money or your time waiting, go down the street to Doc Fords if you’re interested in good seafood. Server Tracy was very good to us though.

Our first day in Fort Myers we came here on a recommendation. The staff was welcoming and full of suggestions. We were there in time for 2 for 1 drinks, delicious. We had the cheesy dip, mussels, crab cocktail, gator bites and more. Eat inside or out. Our bartender, Jake, is a treasure. He suggested food we might enjoy, and we did!
