Nice choice for a good meal !

Really laid back place for lunch with great food from the rueben to seafood strudel, an easy winner and not expensive!

I've been to Kretch's quite a bit probably over 5 times and it's always good. Bread is fresh, daily specials are good, and service is quick. No complaints, especially in season when many places are really hard to get into and expensive. Kretch's is worth it.

We have been here 5 or 6 times during this season. It does not disappoint. While the décor is dated, we come for the food and great service. Today we were joined by two friends. They have both lived on Marco over 20 years. One of the ladies said she has not been in the restaurant for at last 15... More

If you like the old supper clubs in Wisconsin or Minnesota that have big fish hanging on the walls and pictures of fishermen in little black frames along with lots of bric-a-brac surrounding the bar, you will feel comfortable here. The food is good if you stick to their house specialties. The shrimp were good and the seafood wrapped in... More

I always try to eat where the locals and the people staying for the winter eat, well this is the place. Family owned, same wait staff for years, one of my parents favorite places on the Island. A must is the coconut shrimp, fantastic, never had a bad meal , enjoy.

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 salmon the next night. The stuffed... More
