Our favorite Marco Island restaurant

We have been coming to Marco Island for a week each winter for years. Kretch's is by far our favorite restaurant here. This year, we dined here on our first two nights on the island. I can't have it, but my companions love the seafood strudel. I had coconut-crusted grouper one night, and blackened... read more

All meals are prepared when order so expect a little wait for your meal. Fresh rye bread was seved with our appetizer and soup.. Both meals were very good.... More

It is best in season to get a reservation. We did, but those who arrived when we did without a reservation were waiting 30-45 minutes for a table. Salads are fresh. I had EGGPLANT PARMEGIANA. The eggplant was cut very thin and was slightly crispy on the edges. The cheese and marinara sauce were tasty. My wife had Seafood Crisp... More

We had been to Kretch's during previous trips to Marco and had enjoyed their seafood so decided to return. We made a reservation and arrived a few minutes early. The restaurant was not busy but we had to wait while the hostess 'figured out' where she was going to seat us. ? Ok, not a big deal. We were not... More

The service here is very friendly and the atmosphere "casual kitch". However, the food is a real drawback, it all seems like a high end cafeteria. For example, they offered a choice of four vegetable sides... 3 type of potatoes and braised cabbage. My table tried them all and they were uniformly disappointing. The food & the strip mall location... More

this place is not fancy, nor is the food. However, it is consistently good, not great. The Caesar salad is very good, as is the seafood streusel. Wife's chicken florentine was also good. The side of scalloped potatoes was served in a little bowl, giving that institutional feeling to it. However, it was fine but good have been served warmer.... More

Broccoli soup, yummy salad and seltzer. Atmosphere is average. Menu extensive. Food is above average and tables are easy to find on a busy island in season.

We read the reviews and on a cabby's recommendation figured we would check it out. Yes, it's old school. Yes, we were the youngest in the place. Yes, the service was great. And the scampi, mussels, clam chowder and seafood strudel were great. (Shrimp cocktail was so so) Drinks were generous, and we had a good Time. Place filled up... More
