Pinchers Crab Shack, the second largest purveyor of stone crab claws in the country and local seafood restaurant with eight locations from Sarasota to Key West. It’s Pinchers’ goal to have stone crab claws available on October 15 at all locations. Knowing that stone crabs are the only renewable resource in the water, Island Crab Company expertly crabs our local waters for Pinchers providing their customers the freshest product as they control the seafood from the water to the table. Guests can purchase claws to eat at any of their ten locations, or purchase some to take home from one of their in-store seafood markets.
All weekend attendees can enjoy a block party with live music, Tin City vendor discounts, jet boat tours, kids activities, shopping, restaurant vendors and more! The event is free and plenty of parking will be provided on the northwest corner of US-41 and Goodlette-Frank Road.
