“Food not so good...very nice location”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We went there for dinner, first we waited to be seated in an almost empty restaurant. then we ordered Lump Crab Alfredo and Scallop Platter neither of these were good. There were no 'Heaps of Crab' as in the menu actually i had to look for the crab in that plate very ordinary dish i couldn't finish it. and for the scallops they too were not good didn't seem fresh. and this is not a cheap place though our server was nice.

for that area the food was really lousy, i will not go there again.

“Location Excellent, Food not so much”
Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

We were not impressed with the quality of the food we ordered the other night. The grouper sandwich was not fresh and appeared to have been frozen. It lacked taste and seemed to be just thrown on a bun without any sauce. The location on the beach is exceptional, but for the price, I would go to Yukatan's and enjoy a truly fresh grouper sandwich.

Everything I had was good and we thought it was at a good price. Breakfast was large portions and we had fresh Mahi which was cook perfect!! There was a band playing each day and we really enjoyed the whole experience!

“Great ambiance, great service, great food”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

We ate at Pincher's Crab Shack Tiki Bar our last night in town. The main restaurant was empty but the tiki bar was lively. We enjoyed the live band and were able to sit at the table closest to the beach. The service was excellent. We started with the hot cheese crab dip which was yummy. I had the fish and chips - quite good for the States - and my girlfriend had blackened shrimp which she enjoyed. They also had two for one on alcohol. Finally, we were able to see the sun set on another beautiful Fort Myers Beach day. Highly recommended.

“Very Good”
Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I stopped at Pinchers during Happy Hour. He ordered fish and chips while I chose shrimp. We thought it a bit pricey but it is on the beach and expected. However, when we received our meals, the quantity was worth the price and then some. Large portions and very good. The only negative was the margaritas were watery. He had beer so that was okay. Next time I'll have tea!

I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your meals. We use a quality tequila so it does not have as strong of an aftertaste so that may be the issue with the margaritas but I will investigate.
