We were there for happy hour. What a great time! Enjoyed the oysters,clams and wings with two for one drinks. You cannot go wrong with the happy hour prices. Brandon was our server and he really took care of us

This is a casual family restaurant. Very good fish and chips. We had to wait a little bit because it was crowded, but the time wasn't too bad.

On our recent stay in Bonita Springs we ate a good grouper dinner at Pincher's. The atmosphere can be a little loud at times but the meal with potatoes and cole slaw were very good.

This was a second visit for us to Pinchers because one in the group wanted seafood and it was close by. Both of our visits were OK, but this is not a go-to seafood place for us. It was pretty crowded on a Saturday night...More

I visit this restaurant every time I holiday in this beautiful area. We are English and this is one of favourite places to come. I waited 3 years to return and headed for Pinchers on Sunday night. Everything was as good as 3 years ago!...More

This is one of those places you go to for a quick bite to eat. It offers the "usual" type of "bar" inspired food. Lots of FRIED options, cheap beers, and they also have an Happy Hour, that seems to be very popular.

The rest of our party had grouper and they all bragged about their selection. I ordered coconut shrimp it was extremely spiced to my taste. I would give another try next time

Pincher's does not take reservations, but they do "call ahead" seating. So you can call and have your name put on the waiting list before you leave the house.

You Can't Fake Fresh® - that's not just our tagline, it is the core value of the family owned and operated Pinchers Crab Shacks.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, and that's what we mean when we say – You Can't Fake Fresh®.
