Since 1997, Pinchers has operated with a simple mission - Local fishermen fishing local waters for a local restaurant. You can't get a more Southwest Florida experience than that. Each morning, local fishermen and crabbers leave our shores and guide their boats out into the Gulf of Mexico. They return each night with the best that the Gulf has to offer and bring this precious catch to our local seafood facility - The Island Crab Company located on Pine Island. Quality is everything to a seafood restaurant, especially ours, and this is how we deliver the best seafood in town to your table each and every visit.

This is why our motto is "You Can't Fake Fresh!®"
