A very nice crowd, very good drinks and the Happy Hour(4-7) food deals are terrific. They offer a nice selection of... More

Took some family and friends out for dinner, all meals were very good. Scallops came out smelling like ammonia, so they had to be sent back. What irritated me the most was the waitress knew of a previous complaint and still served them without even smelling them. How sad it was to really ruin a good outing. The Manager replaced... More

If you are picking up a friend at airport or before you drop off go here for dinner. Don't try to go for lunch as they are closed. Great seafood, upscale setting, good wine by the glass. It is a straight shot off 75 take Daniels and go west...travel time 15-20 mins. It is worth it as it is very... More

We have been coming to the Prawnbroker for over 20 years I and have never been disappointed. So many new restaurants have opened in Fort Myers but the Prawnbroker hold its own very well. You will find a varied variety of seafood all of it fresh. Ask for the daily fish specials since these will include varieties not on the... More

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.
