Brought a girlfriend in for a nice lunch. The restaurant has been remodeled over the summer and it looks fresh and new. Lighter paint color, carpeting gone and new pictures. Wonderful upgrades! Thankfully the terrific food and service are still in place. Immediately greeted and seated with the regular menu still in place. Also, a daily specials menu is available.... More

We have lived on Marco for 15 years and first visited Kretch's when we first moved here, and again about 5 years later, and again yesterday. In all those years, the food has been consistently terrible. I have no idea how this place has survived for so many years when there are so many good restaurants on Marco. Last night... More

The place inside reminds me of a small town Wisconsin restaurant. There really wasn't much to choose from, but I have been wanting to go there to try the piña colada grouper. It was great. But everyone else's meal were just ok. Can't say I'd go back. Ambiance was definitely lacking.

We try to get to Kretch's every time we're in Marco. I'd put it in the category of classic old Florida, with dark wood and a nautical theme with various fish mounted on the walls. Food and service are always good, portions generous and prices standard.

First of all you are on and island that most restaurants specialize in fish dishes. You would think you could get fresh fish. We order scallops one of our favorite dishes and boy where we sorry.

Place smelled like bleach, owner was rude, place is over priced for quality of food, no parking, only redeeming quality was the wait staff.

Not bad, everyone was nice, place was clean. I'm not sure about the rest of the menu, but I had the caesar salad with a tuna steak, and it was great.
