Kretch’s has been serving locals and visitors since 1986 in a friendly environment where regulars are greeted by name. The restaurant strives to offer upscale food for those on a budget and makes use of local ingredients.
The staff is great and always welcoming. Some of Kretch’s servers have been with the restaurant for more than a decade and a few others for more than two decades. That says a lot about this great restaurant.
Lunch is served weekdays from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and dinner is offered daily from 5:00 p.m. onwards. The restaurant closes during the offseason on Sunday and Monday.
The Lunch Menu offers multiple salads, sandwiches, half-pound burgers, and Luncheon Platters. The Dinner menu expands to include multiple fish and seafood platters but still offers lighter options. Kretch’s is known for its rotating seasonal menu items along with regular specials.
Multiple reviews describe the ambiance as quiet and peaceful during the day but as expected it can get louder in the evenings when the restaurant hosts live entertainment, music, and dancing. The walls are decorated with stuffed fish, sailboat models, and related nautical items.
Seasonal specialties are offered around Holidays, including Oktoberfest specials, Thanksgiving, and New Year’s.
The Sun King loves Kretch’s. He has loved it since day one – literally. He first heard of this great restaurant on the day he moved on to Marco Island. The great food and friendly people make Kretch’s a must-see on your vacation to Marco Island.
