Waterfront Dining: This downtown restaurant is among the newer additions to the Pincher's family, a local seafood restaurant that while based in the Fort Myers area, has expanded as far south as Key West. With a wide-open view of the Caloosahatchee River, there's a large terrace for lots of outdoor seating. Even the indoor tables provide diners with lovely waterfront views. The restaurant owns half of a local seafood company to assure that the catch you are served is the freshest possible. Make sure to try the stone crabs here when they are in season. If you happen to be touring the historic Edison & Ford Winter Estates, there is a back gate that gives direct access to Pinchers, a welcomed new partnership.
