We had a wonderful meal at the Prawnbroker. We ate in the bar for a more casual meal. Ashley the bartender was great-very professional.

The restaurant is big enough that large groups should not have any problem beiing comfortable. Reservations are recommended during peak season since it's a very popular place. It is situated in an area that has retail shops. The food is not fancy but if you like the idea of a feel good meal this is the place to go. There... More

My family and I went to Prawnbroker for my birthday. Our waitress was Donna, who was excellent and very attentive. I love this restaurant because it is a nice place to take your family, not to loud, and the service is always great. I had the Seabass special that was cooked perfectly and everyone else very much enjoyed their meal.... More

Waiter Mike's suggestions were spot on! He said that the red snapper just came in this afternoon. I had it and it was outstanding. He also recommended the seafood bisque soup. Wow was that terrific! You could stand a spoon up in it. Because it was not "season", Mike could take his time with us and his suggestions were great.... More

I'm a frequent visitor to Prawnbroker, never have had a bad meal. Always the best service and a great happy hour in the bar. During the summer they have a great lobster special on Friday night. Visitor or local this is a great place to dine or have a drink. My only complaint is they close too early.

The best seafood restaurant in Fort Myers. I had the clams and oyster appetizer and it was delicious. My husband had the escargot that was fabulous. We ordered swordfish and tuna for dinner and it was as fresh as can be. Casual atmosphere and great service. I highly recommend giving it a try. Must make reservations especially in Season.

Description
Walking through the front doors, guests are greeted by the in-house seafood market, where the Prawnbroker showcases their specially chosen fresh fillets of fish and beef, hand-cut on premise, that are sure to tempt the palates of all. To emphasize their commitment to buying local and bringing you the freshest seafood Ft. Myers has to offer, you'll find our hand picked selection straight from the local waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Here you'll get a peek at the sumptuous fare that you'll soon be enjoying from their comfortable yet elegant dining room. Feast your eyes on mouth-watering Snapper, Gulf Shrimp, Softshell Crabs, Mahi Mahi, and the best Grouper Florida has to offer. Small tubs of pale pink creamy shrimp bisque stand in line next to bases for both kinds of chowder - New England style being what the restaurant is most famous for, a nod to the original owners' home region. Diners consistently return to enjoy these favorites plus the greatest Florida Stone crabs (in season) and Maine Lobsters.
