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.

We tried this place on a recommendation. The wait staff was very friendly. The food came in a timely manner and hot. The serving was appropriate and the price was decent. The food was very good. The value for the meal was on par with other similar places.

Hadn't been here in several years. Parking is a mess until you find a huge lot hidden behind the restaurant. Great happy hour drinks and lots of seafood appetizers. Fried calamari was delicious.
I had the Parmesan Crusted sea bass. It was the best I've had in years. And the portion size was about twice as much as served in other local eateries. Great service and great food. Tough combination to beat.

We always try to have dinner when we are in town. Tonight was fantastic as always. Chowder is great and the grouper was delicious. Good key lime pie. Ask for Sabrina if she is there.......wonderful server who goes that extra step to make the customer feel welcomed.

Great seafood. The service was awesome. Loved the calamari and the almond fried shrimp. Even the steamed veggies were great!

If you don't mind the crowds this is a place to go.
We went with friends for the 4th time and it never gets old.
I'd suggest getting there early or make reservations.
The service was wonderful, the food even better.
A family styled restaurant specializing in fish.
Worth the visit if you're in the area.
