The food was good, their happy hour is a great value but the wait time was long--even when we got to our table it was over 40 minutes from the time the server took our order til the time we were served.

The two couples outdid themselves on the happy hour drinks and food menu. The atmosphere and long river views must have had something to do with their appetites, but the waitress, Clarissa, played a conducting role. She treated them to oysters at $ .99 a...More

Pincher’s is the only restaurant we go to for seafood. Always fresh, cooked to order, and worth the wait. Servers are excellent, and Jake is the best bartender/ server around! When my brother-in-law and sister come in from Illinois, they eat there at least 3...More

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!
