Description: Konrads Tropical Grille has a warm and welcoming atmosphere with a casual, tropical flare. Konrad is always at the door to personally greet his guests and to assure every meal is prepared to their satisfaction. His staff is friendly and attentive without being overbearing. His menu is reasonably priced and affordable for the entire family. Enjoy outdoor seating on the tropical patio. Visit Konrads for Happy Hour from 5:00 to 7:00pm nightly in the lounge or order from his Early Bird selections from 5:00 to 6:00pm in the dining room. A variety of other delicious American and German dishes are offered as specials on each night of the week as well. Don't see something on the menu? Don't be afraid to ask Konrad if he can prepare a custom order! If he has the ingredients, he is happy to prepare it!

We were greeted at the door by Konrad for an 8:00 reservation and immediately seated at our choice between a table or booth. The ambiance and decor is OK. There is ample room between tables.

We ordered the surf and turf, sea bass, and the duck. This was a Tuesday so, Duck is on the special. They ran out of goulash so only one of us was able to have it. The rest of us had mushroom soup or salad.

The goulash was excellent- one could order a bowl and have a nice meal of it. The salad includes a little German Potato salad- a nice touch. The mushroom soup is a sweet interpretation.

The duck portion is comprised of a leg, thigh, 1/2 breast and wing. You wont go hungry! They are known for the duck.

The surf and turf is also a large meal. The lobster tail was very good but IMO the filet was too strong of flavor possibly being aged too long. Mind you still a good piece of meat and at a very good price.

The presentation of these dishes was a cluttered plate BUT again, you wont go hungry.

The Sea Bass was EXCELLENT an ample portion that melts in your mouth. Quite possibly the best sea bass I have ever tasted. The presentation was also excellent.

Desert was Key Lime pie presentation and taste will also not disappoint. Portion is small.

Service was very good, no rush with good suggestions.

Dinner for 4 totaled $114.

For our last night in Marco we headed over to Konrad's which had moved locations since we last were on the island. Konrad's is the only restaurant on the island that serves German food. Every visit to Marco leaves us wanting authentic German food and Konrad's did not disappoint. We ordered the Wiener schnitzel and asked for the Jaeger sauce. Konrad the owner, whipped us the divine sauce even though it was not on the menu. We also asked about German potato pancakes. Again, Konrad and his incredible staff whipped up the most delicate and crisp potato pancake with apple sauce as an appetizer. It was so incredible, we just had to order another. The entire meal was well prepared, served graciously and overall the restaurant is an excellent value in Marco (which tends to have many overpriced restaurants along the South end of the island). We were so delighted to eat at Konrad's that we plan to stop by even when we stay in Naples.

After Marco Island vacation in 2005 and 2008 we spent now again one week on this nice Island. In the Internet we read the information that Konrad’s seems to be closed and so we were very glad when we found Konrad’s in a new location - just 100 yards next to the previous one - after a couple of days. We enjoyed the cordially welcome by Konrad himself, the new ambience and furniture, the very professional servers and the very good food. Unfortunately we had only twice the chance to go there for dinner. Whatever we ordered – duck special, surf and turf, fish, salad or the special German lentil soup - everything was perfect prepared, excellent in taste and large portions and not to forget the warm bread and butter before the meal !
Konrad’s location is in a short walking distance from Hilton and Marriott and features an excellent and reasonable priced alternative to the hotel restaurants. In any case Konrad’s will be first choice on our next trip to Marco Island – our favorite island in the Gulf of Mexico.

We were just cruising around, getting a feel for the island, and saw this place. We sat inside - because it was the hot part of the day (which is kind of all the parts in June, but the hottest part). Our server was very professional and quick. We ordered drinks, which were delicious and just strong enough to feel like you are getting what you paid for (unlike the drinks at our hotel!). I ordered the Salmon Matilda with parsley potatoes - it was a great meal and good portion sizes. My partner ordered the Surf & Turf - the lobster tail was a nice size and the filet mignon was cooked perfectly. The atmosphere is very friendly and the service was excellent. It was a nice relaxing experience.

From the minute we entered the restaurant we felt very welcomed. Greeted at the door by Konrad himself.....nice touch. We went here because of the Thursday night Sauerbraten special.
Great choice! Our dinner was well prepared and served nice and hot. The salads and warm bread before the meal were excellent. We will come on our next trip to Marco Island!
