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.

“Likely the best Salmon ever.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Visited this restaurant after a long day of driving.

I chose the Feature Salmon which was a panko crusted, with a hint of wasabi. it came out prepared perfectly. Light and flakey, still very moist, and not well done like so many resaurants serve it. Our server was exceptionally friendly, and helpful

For a casual, yet enjoyable meal, in a restaurant that specializes in seafood. I would recommend this to my friends.

“Nothing great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

I took Tripadvisor ratings and visited the restaurant. I had the broiled grouper. The fish was okay, very mild but lacked seasoning. The bread is good, vegtables, house salad very average. The baked potato was baked in tin foil. Somewhat dated interior and average service.
No reason to return,

“Always The Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

The Prawnbroker is easily my favorite restaurant in Ft. Myers, Fl. The seafood selection is always outstanding and the fish is always fresh. There is a good selection of other entrees and the bar has a good selection of wines.The service is outstanding. Everything is prepared as one would expect and served promptly.
