The service was ok but the food was sub-par. Manhattan chowder was crunchy fresh veggies in a weak broth. Didn't see a clam anywhere. It's one of those restaurants where they ask how you want your meat cooked and medium-rare always comes out extremely well-done....More

Staple for local seafood! Friendly service is the norm. Local catch of the day featured on the menu. Great place to bring a larger group. This was our 2nd time there and service and quality were very consistent.

We thoroughly enjoyed the amberjack fish dinner. We ordered it blackened with two sides. Bread was fresh and served before the meal. Salad was fresh and crisp. Service was prompt with little waiting . We will definitely return.

Fresh well prepared seafood. The shrimp bisque is awesome, I get the starter at the seafood counter and take home when we visit. Waitstaff is informative and attentive. Always delicious. Nice atmosphere for a lovely dinner.

We dined here two times in the past week. The food was so good we had to come back a second time. We had the ahi tuna and steak. Both were excellent. Wedge salad is to die for!

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.
