Prawnbroker is a staple in Fort Myers if you are looking for good seafood and while the food is good, it isn't great and the restaurant is extremely dated. This visit just continued a trend I've noticed over the past few years of lower and...More

I have visited the Prawnbroker Restaurant for years, It is consistantly wonderful. We started eating there when we lived in Cape Coral and went to the Tmbers when we moved to the Sanibel. No matter what you order, you will be happy.

Prices are very moderate. I would say $21-$29 for fish. Two sides are offered with the meal. Also, hot bread is served.

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.
