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.

“Great Seafood Place”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Was in Ft. Myers visiting family and went to Prawnbroker Restaurant. What a great place to eat! I would love to have their recipe for the oatmeal/molasses bread. My scallops were large and cooked perfect; a very generous portion.

Would I eat here again? You betcha!

“Outstanding”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at the Pink Seashell Beach resort. The restaurant is tucked away in a small shopping plaza with convenient ample parking. As soon as we entered we were surprised to see a small reatil fish market in the front of the establishment. The restaurant itself was very quaint and had a warm friendly feeling. The staff was fantastic and the menue was extensive with varieties of fish that you can only get on the West Coast of Florida. Caught fresh that day and prepared the way you loke it. If you like fish, though there are many other menu choices this is the place to go. The waitress that served us has been working there for more than twenty, this says something about the success of this fantastic resataurant. A Must try.

“Excellent Fresh Seafood Restaurant!”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

My sister and I had dinner at the Prawnbroker Restaurant and it was excellent!
I started with the fresh shrimp bisque which was wonderful and she really enjoyed the seafood chowder. The fresh, homemade bread was great! The shrimp stuffed with crabmeat was tender and delicious and the broiled grouper was excellent. The portions were large and reasonably priced and the server was very helpful and attentive. The restaurant was large but cozy. They had a very large selection of fresh seafood and also had many early bird specials. They also had a special "Happy Hour" menu in the bar.
