While the interior of this restaurant is fairly gaudy, the quality of the fish and the size of the portions is in its favor. The restaurant is located a short distance from Fort Myers Beach after you cross the bridge. They offer 2 for one...More

Before we get to the good stuff, address on receipt confusing to me. It lists it at 18100 San Carlos Blvd Ft Myers Beach. The King crab was delicious, fish and chips and fried clam strips very good. Great staff, including management.

We used to come here a few times every year. But I don't think we will come again. We missed the friendly staff and the good food. The mussels Marinara was full of broken shells, so the pasta was hard to eat. The oysters had...More

Looked perfect from the street - a little tacky, but busy in the kind of enticing way that gives you a good vibe. Crowded at all times of day. Very ordinary fried food - nothing special and some below par - skip kit and find...More

Worst meal the wife and I had on our vacation to Florida. She had uneatable Grouper and I had an Uncooked Hamburger{ which I ordered semi-well done} Please don't judge this place by it's outside appearance, that's the only good thing about this joint.

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®.
