I have so enjoyed the firecracker shrimp many times in the past at this location. Today...not! The manager tried to convince me that the pancake battered excuse for tempura was how it always is. NO, IT'S NOT! Tempura is a light, crispy batter made with...More

Some of the worst clams I have ever had in my life. Servers were excellent but the food was terrible.

We went with family that live in Fort Myers. The food was really good. The view of the river was great. Pinchers was a great place to visit with family we hadn't seen in weeks.

Watch the beautiful Florida sunsets while dining on perfectly cooked seafood. Our waiter was fantastic, paying detail to all our needs and the needs of our friend from Kentucky. Pinchers is known for its fresh seafood, and this one tops all the others.

We had lunch here after touring the Edison and Ford Winter Estates. We sat outside overlooking tne Caloosahatchee river. The fish was great, we all had grouper cooked different ways. The service was good, and all day happy hour was a bonus.

We had a nice refreshing lunch outdoors. Fish dip for starters, and their local beer! Tasty tasty. Our server was outstanding, and the food was just as great as the service. Great river views too!

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!
