They have noon specials every day with a nice variety of selections. They do a good job with their fish. We never go in the evening, but I think it's quite busy many times during season. I think Saturday night is prime rib night.

I must tell the truth. We have owned our home on Marco Island since 1994 and we have always missed Kretch's - no more. Stopped for lunch after a trip to the library. What a treat. Great food and attentive staff, who i found out have been there forever. Linda had the Seafood Crisp and i had a bowl of clam chowder and house salad. Both were terrific. Highly recommended and we will be back often. You snooze you loose.

Back to Marco for season and back to our favorite restaraunt and best waitress ever, Wanda! Only Wanda has remained consistent. This was the first time we experienced mediocre meal. Lunch menu has changed. They have taken away my favorite..chicken parm sub. Hamburger $9.95. Nachos also $9.95 blah, no flavor. Took nachos home to doctor up, to make edible. Prices up approximately 20% since last season ( menu on this site is not current) and the food not that great. Asking the Kids not to get us Kretches Christmas gift certificates this year and on TripAdvisor searching for new Marco lunch spot.

This place is a must if you like great home cooking in a family atmosphere and great service. i've been here before and always happy to go back. i always start with escargot, they make it perfectly with just enough of garlic butter but not smothering it. Then i had the t-bone, i get it rare and they have always brought it just the way i want it.the staff treats you like family and the service is excellent. if you want to have a quick bite go over to the bar side of the restaurant and try the steak sandwich on lightly toasted garlic bread with steak fries.the other thing i'd like to mention is the owner's love and commitment for the people of marco island, cooking food for residents and other's with no power or water out in their parking lot free after Irma. now these are people i'm happy to support. great food and great owners, how can you go wrong.
