“Excellent food and attentive service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

My daughter and I were on vacation at Fort Myers Beach and wanted to try a nice seafood restaurant........checked the TripAdvisor reviews and decided on the Prawnbroker. It was a great choice for the grouper and shrimp dishes we selected. But our real favorite was the escargot in a garlic sauce appetizer....a first for my thirteen year old and she loved it. :) We had a great time and a great dinner

“My Favorite Restaurant in Fort Myers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Service is great. The servers seem to have a knack for pairing their wine with their food. I had a nice Chardonnay with their Seafood mix and it was wonderful. Another visit rendered a great white wine pairing with their Paella which was probably the best this side of Mallorca. Their presentation always seems to stack up and the atmosphere is always second to none. I've been going their since the late 70's and thought it was time to write a review. A must visit and don't forget the early bird dinner time each day. You'll save money and they don't compromise anything to give you a better deal.

“Aunt's favorite dinner place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

This is our aunt's favorie dinner place for 'special guests. We had escargot, stuffed mushrooms, crunchy platter, broiled platter, and shrimp platter.
Broiled platter: shrimp was delish, didn't mention what the fish was
Shrimp platter: nicely varied, fired, provencal, stuffed
Crab cake stuffing was mushy.
They didn't ever ask for drink orders.

“Very good food and service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

The crab legs and lobster were very good. Crab legs were a little expensive vs. some other restaurants in the area. The shrimp bisque was also excellent. Would definitely recommend the Prawnbroker to other visitors.

“Freshness is key”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Very nice food - very fresh, which is so important with seafood. Service is brisk, but friendly. The only slight negative is that they don't seem keen to stay open late mid-week!
