Kretch's has reopened for the season, but the folks haven't yet on Marco, so a Saturday evening foursome enjoyed a quiet meal before things get busy. The chicken Dijon had a slightly lemon flavor that was surprisingly welcome in a cream sauce. The seafood strudel, a signature dish, was full of various pieces of shrimp, lobster, etc., wrapped in a... More

It was our last evening in Marco Island and we decided to try Kretch's Restaurant. The wait staff was extremely friendly and attentive and we were seated immediately. We decided on the pork chop, which was one of the daily specials. We were extremely happy with the meal: the pork was juicy and very tasty; the Swiss au gratin was... More

We went on recommendation and found it pleasant enough. The person at the door was busy chatting to a friend, so we felt a little unwelcome, although our server was fine. I had the cajun burger which was average. My wife tried the signature "seafood strudel", a filo pastry roll, which was fine, but not exceptional, and a little pricey.... More

Great family run restaurant with a down home feeling. Food was great and they had a sizable gluten free menu. The staff was knowledgeable and very attentive and helpful. We ate early, but within the hour we were there the place filled up. They take reservation and would suggest it for the busy times

We had two meals there, one was great and the other very good. The grouper special was excellent and my husband loved his seafood mix meal.

Can't beat the meal, whether it was the fish or the ribs. The wait staff could not have been more helpful. A definite must if you are on Marco Island.

The biggest thing I want to share about this restaurant is that they have a great gluten-free menu and the servers and kitchen clearly had training about food allergies. They did a great job accommodating my son and me, who have celiac disease. The food is very good. They have a pretty good wine list. Our server was very friendly... More

When we first started goint to Marco Island many years ago, Kretch's was always the first place we visited for dinner. Unfortunately, in the past few years, we feel the quality of the food has deteriorated. It isn't bad -- it just isn't what it used to be. Went for lunch this year. Service was good. Waitress was very attentive... More

Service is fast and the food is above par and prices are average Hate to give a really good review, don't want to ruin a good thing. Place is clean and staff is friendly. Eat there once and you will return.

Love this place. Have never had a bad meal. Prices are quite good for the area. The seafood strudel is wonderful and very rich. My fish was excellent, quite fresh and cooked to perfection.
