My Keys visit was a kind of working vacation but I had to take the time to visit the Barracuda. We were promptly greeted and seated. Our server, Hannah, was friendly and attentive. We shared appetizers of curried brussel sprouts and baked brie. The sprouts...More

This was our second visit to this restaurant. We returned because the fish dishes are unique and perfectly made. I felt like having pasta with meatballs. When the dish arrived, both were swimming in pasta sauce. I had to dig out the linguini. The dish...More

We ate at the Barraucuda Grill and were rewarded with a superb menu, great service and wonderful food. Like many great restaurants the menu changes based on freshness and offers a nice blend of taste. Try the lamb and curried brussel sprouts. Nice wine menu...More

We go to Marathon every year but haven’t tried Barracuda before because it is only open in the Evening and we always have a light meal then. We finally tried them this past week and did not meet our expectations. The Brussel Sprout dish was...More

The duck here is amazing, as good as the Hideaway. Get here early, they don’t take reservations. The Brussels sprout appetizer is really good too, and the potstickers!! Rachel took good care of us :)

We’ve lived here for a year, and never been here!!! Took our waitresses suggestion and split the calamari shrimp appetizer, super delicious and spicy, and the rack of lamb. This was my first time ever eating lamb, and I can’t believe how amazing it was!...More

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!
