Heavy local repeat business for lunch and dinner. The owner is on top of everything and seems to spend time with every customer and the workers are all long timers which results in great personal service. Everything I ordered was great. The steak sandwich and French onion soup I thought were special. Nice open seating area in the restaurant, but... More

This was a terrific find and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Marco Island. This is where the locals go for fresh steak and seafood. The service is prompt and friendly and the prices are not as expensive as by the tourist spots.

Food was good but you could tell this restaurant had been around awhile. They had music in the bar and everyone seemed to be having a good time.

The strudel is one of my favorite dishes. I go there every year just to have it. Make sure you make a reservation. This is a great family family restaurant with great food.

We tried Kretch's for the first time last night. The Seafood Strudel was quite good - shrimp, scallops, and crab with a creamy sauce, wrapped in a puff pastry and topped with lobster sauce. My husband had the blackened grouper, which was also good. We were too full for dessert, but we saw the peanut butter pie, and it looked... More

These folks know how to take care of your Oktoberfest dinner cravings. I had the Sauerbraten with red cabbage, potato cake and apple sauce and every bite was Heaven. Sure they serve fish and lobster but when it's Oktoberfest time try this for a Real Adventure!

During October, Chef Bruce Kretschmer serves an array of German fare in addition to their regular menu. Sauerbraten, Weiner Schnitzel, and a couple of other German dishes, accompanied by good red cabbage, a potato pancake and applesauce, and of course apple strudel for dessert. Their very famous seafood strudel is one of the best dishes on the menu. Very popular... More

I stopped by for lunch - and the food options and quality were great. From the street it doesnt look like anything special but dont be fooled. Everything is made fresh. I had the best fried grouper that I have found since moving to SW Florida. I will be back

Thank Rick C
