About The Prawnbroker Restaurant & Seafood Market
Welcome to The Prawnbroker Restaurant & Seafood Market, located in Fort Myers, Florida, where you’ll find all your favorite local seafood, steaks and 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.
A special-occasion restaurant, a favorite table in the corner restaurant, or a neighborhood hang-out restaurant, The Prawnbroker Restaurant is all of these. In the bar, and on the menu, a list of martinis named for area neighborhoods include the Gulf Harbour (Ketel One vodka, olive juice, bleu cheese olives) and the Venetian Key Lime (Parrot Bay key lime rum, Stoli Vanil and pineapple). The bar has also begun crafting our very own specialty infused vodkas such as the raspberry and cucumber vodka, a favorite.
Aside from the drinks, or perhaps after them, start with the escargot or Florida Cracker Shrimp, both favorites of frequent diners. Feeling indulgent? Opt for Jessie’s Smoked Fish Dip, made with fish smoked in-house by Jessie herself or The Prawnbroker’s Fishmonger, another item on the menu that has a bit of a story.
