I went in with 2 other friends for a cocktail and to have a good fish dinner. Although their food is good we didn't stay for dinner. We sat at the bar and asked for menus and the bartender named Gretchen was the rudest person I have ever dealt with. She made us feel very unwelcome. We asked her what... More

I've eaten here about a dozen. Times over the past few years. The foods not bad and the service is hit or miss. Every time I go I call and make a reservation and have them hold 2 soft shell crabs to the side for my dinner. (Very nice of them to offer this option). The place is in dire... More

This place has been here for years and my wife and I have been there several times in the past 20 years but this is the first time we have been there in about 10 years. Entrance is in front of a small courtyard and it is beautifully landscaped, great area to hang out if you are waiting for guests.... More

My husband and I visited the Prawnbroker restaurant while on vacation. We went out for a late dinner and were delightfully surprised. The wait staff was very friendly and prompt. We were seated right away. The restaurant was very clean. Nice atmosphere. The food was delicious. We both had crab stuffed shrimp which was delicious.

I was just driving around looking for a seafood restaurant that had a bunch of cars in the parking lot, when I saw The Pawnbroker Restaurant and Fish Market. I figured if they were a fish market the fish should be fresh and it was. I started with the Shrimp Bisque and it was a thick rich bisque with many... More

The Prawnbroker is a rock solid choice for dinner with friends or family, a date, or just a fun night out. Part of a larger (but not too large) restaurant group...thse people have the restaurant business figured out. First, they hire quality people and take good care of them. Our waitress has been with them for 28 years, yet still... More

Years ago we had enjoyed an affiliated restaurant on Marco Island. Tonight we were delighted to enjoy the same terrific fish and friendly service we remembered from Marco. I had what the menu accurately described as "very fresh" amberjack, and my wife had fried oysters. Both were totally delicious. We will be back.
