Very safe and knowledgeable staff, my sister can’t have dairy as well as gluten so we got 2 different meals and neither of us got sick. I got the crab dip with celery instead of chips to make it GF and the scallops with coleslaw and green beans. My sister got mahi-mahi with green beans and applesauce but had to ask for no butter, which they easily accommodated. The food wasn’t incredible but the staff was so awesome and I felt safe eating my meal on vacation.

They have a GF menu that is 99% seafood. Only non-seafood items are a House salad with choice of protein. No gf Caesar dressing. Baby back ribs are gf, but no BBQ sauce 🤷🏻‍♀.

🤢 Maybe for beer, margaritas and fries. Worst $80 spent for a meal for 2 adults a one child. No alcohol. Waitress and hostess were great but food made me sick. Celiac and I ordered the crab bite claws sautéed. My plate was also sent out with bread. Husband’s food was not good either. Ate there last night and still feel I’ll. We’re a little scared. I will say my daughter was happy with her chicken strips and fries.

Separate gluten free menu. Sides available included green beans, applesauce, cold slaw(very good), and mashed potatoes. Had the scallops (broiled only option) and they were good. Plenty of other choices I'd say.

Beautiful location on second floor overlooking Caloosahatchee River provides stunning views. Open air dining available at outdoor tables under roof (very safe for COVID) or indoors. Separate GF menu offers many choices. My favorite is peel-and-eat shrimp available hot or cold. Location is adjacent to Edison & Ford Winter Estates with easy access and entrance purchase available. Everyone always enjoys the food (both GF or regular). I have eaten here often and have never had any problems.

The manager took time to meet with us and discuss what foods were safe from cross contamination and she advised the kitchen so that they would take extra precautions when handling my daughter’s plate of food.

The food was delicious and the the portions were perfect. The manager asked what my daughter liked to eat & made recommendations safe for celiacs that would taste similar. She ordered what the manager recommended & loved the meal she got. She got steamed rock shrimp with garlic mashed potatoes and applesauce; sauce for the shrimp was on the side per the recommendation.

I communicated with the restaurant beforehand since there were no recent gf reviews & they were extremely helpful. I was given a manager’s name to ask for and she was abundantly knowledgeable and helpful. Food was delicious and staff was great.

Gluten Free menu. Knowledgeable staff. They really know how to prepare fresh seafood that is safe for a Celiac. Everything is fresh, well seasoned, cooked to perfection, and served promptly while hot. Their GF vegetables are fresh and tasty as well. My favorite entree is the Peel & Eat Shrimp served hot with melted butter dip (I’ve had it twice at this location in the past month). All day two for one well drinks. This is a family owned chain and they provide a safe and enjoyable dining experience at all their locations. I’ve dined multiple times at different locations and always had a positive experience.

Server was very helpful but forgot to leave the garlic bread off my salad plate. Said he'd go their the bread away and switch it to a different plate for me and be back in a minute. Another server overheard and took it from him to explain that it needed completely remade. Overall good experience and didn't get sick. The food was just ok.

It was great to know that pinchers had a GF menu however besides ribs and salad it was all seafood. Makes sense because it’s a seafood place but a few more options would have been nice. My server was not educated on food allergies but I appreciated that she checked with the kitchen several times. I had the crab legs and they were great with a side salad that was just ok. You can tell it’s a busy well loved place but they could use a deep cleaning.

They have a separate gf menu with a good number of options. I had the grilled shrimp (amazing seasonings - sooo good & flavorful!), Cole slaw and garlic smashed potatoes. Absolutely delicious!! I will go back and order the exact same thing again! Very friendly staff. Nothing super fancy, but good fresh food. I wish there was one in my state, but I’ll settle for this as a favorite place to visit on vacation.
