The Edison and Ford Estates on the palm tree-lined McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers, Florida, is just a few blocks from Fort Myers’ historic downtown and many ground-level restaurants that are wheelchair accessible.
For those who prefer to stay on or near the grounds, Pinchers Crab Shack at the Marina at Edison Ford is a superb option. A pathway directly connects the estates with the restaurant.
The newest of the Pinchers group, housed on the second floor of a newly renovated building, has two elevators, making it wheelchair accessible. Every kind of crab and most kinds of seafood are available at reasonable prices, and the spectacular view of the Caloosahatchee River—especially at sunset—is hard to find even in this seaside area.
Take a look at the menu for an idea of what’s offered.
Two-for-one drinks on house wines and certain beers are offered all day, not just during happy hour and bands often play for the crowd.
The one drawback about Pinchers is, ironically, its popularity. Waits can be long, depending on the time of year (“in-season,” for example, which extends from December to April) or the time of day. Take this into account when making plans. Reservations are not taken, though staff will put your name on a list if you call ahead.
