Had lunch with Family 04/27/17. I had grouper sandwich...it was just ok. Wife's salad was ok. Step Mother had fish and chips and said it was good. This place has fresh seafood to go also. Good view.

We decided to try Pinchers after seeing an add on the back of the Edison/Ford Map we received while taking our tour. We thought we would try the one by our hotel instead of the estates. The restaurant was not crowded but very clean and right on the water. We had a relaxing lunch. I had fried shrimp with fries... More

We stopped in not knowing it was happy hour. You can't go wrong with a two for one drink special and 75cent oysters!!!!! We also had Old Bay seasoned shrimp and the crab dip. All the food was good and fresh. Fun atmosphere and friendly staff.

Our family has spent the past few years in the area for Spring Break. This was our first visit to Pinchers and we will definitely be back!

Good family atmosphere, much larger inside than it looks. Enjoyed the fresh shrimp and fries. Kids eat free which is nice too. This is not a fancy place, if you are looking to relax, it's perfect. We wanted to avoid the crowds at Fort Meyers.

Cocktails and appetizers after a great day of being tourists. Conch fritters, oysters and shrimp were great. Service by Brandon was friendly and efficient. We will be back.

Communicate with your server - they know a lot about their products - which is mild, which is stronger, fishier- so that you have a great meal experience. Had a good slushy drink, grouper dinner (ask about the different kinds - important!) and awesome key lime pie.

I have been to Pinchers on San Carlos at least 50 times. Good food with wide range menu items so you don't need to love fish or seafood to enjoy.
