I was finally able to visit the Barracuda Grill again after not visiting the Keys for years. The restaurant is still UNBELIEVABLE. You'll notice that 95% of negative feedback is about the prices. That is not a reason to slam a joint. The best thing...More

The blue cheese dressing blew my mind, and I know that sounds ridiculous, but its the best salad dressing Ive ever had. The tomato soup was thick and rich (split, its a huge bowl) and the scallops are amazing!! Giant pork chop with maple bacon...More

First time eating here and cant wait to return. The scallops were cooked perfectly, not over done at all. Try the garlic salad dressings and the spicy shrimp appetuzer. Rachel was great and we WILL be back!!!

I was thrilled to find out that Barracuda Grill was spared by Irmageddon. As a resident of KCB, I couldn't wait to get back to dine again at my fave restaurant. Last night my wait was over. The Perky Pork Potstickers were amazing. The salad...More

Delicious dinner and friendly service. I am remembering what a wonderful evening we had -- a highlight of our high school reunion.

My husband loved the lamb here, and the waitress Rachele let me swap out scallops for shrimp on the scampi. Biggest fattest scallops ever, and so sweet and tender. Escargot marsala is decadant!

The house made hot sauce here is incredible, spicy dishes can be served with the 'hot' on the side. Nice local fish, very tender lamb. Great wine list, waiter Rachel let us sample wine and salad dressings. Funky decor, crayons!!!

The original definition of a restaurant used to be: owners cooking for their guests and extending the personal touch to their time at the joint, serving great food, wines, beers and having personal conversations, time allowing. That's why they come back! And that's what we attempt to do every evening that we serve dinner. Our great servers get to know you and handle the conversation when we are frankly too busy to leave the kitchen at times. After 23 years of service, I think we are going to make it!! Thank you to all that have graced our little spot over years, thanks a million!! Lance and Jan Hill, Chefs/Owners (and by the way, we love kids, have a few of our own, and provide a special menu just for them!) Please check Victoria Shearer's new book that just came out: Florida Keys & Key West Chef's Table, to grab a recipe or two :) Our menu is updated and printed daily. As a side note: we are not the least expensive restaurant in town, nor are we the most expensive. We provide an honest example of the expense to this site for your comparison. And the menu is hung just outside the front door. We do not automatically add a gratuity as routine. In this life I've found, you truly get what you pay for. At Barracuda Grill we respect that adage, respect your business and attempt to earn it every night we offer service (Thursday thru Saturday). PS. We are in the twilight of our cooking careers and look forward to serving you very soon!
