Description: 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 wines and having personal conversations, time allowing. That's why they come back!! And that's what we 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 20 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 (and by the way, we love kids, have our own, and provide a special menu just for them!)

So much of American architecture is the same. As is the dining experience. Predictable and reasonable price and quality but following a chain pattern . This restaurant is different. It's been established for 20 years and has that individual touch. From the outside looks a bit beach hut, which adds to the charm. I made a reservation for 7 people... More

We stopped by for a meal recently and were not disappointed. We were a group of five and every meal that came out was spectacular. The red hot calamari and shrimp was wonderful and i cannot overstate how great it is to have hot bread! The service was spectacular, so friendly and attentive. Rachel, our server was full of great...

We chose the Baracuda Grill because of good trip advisor reports and we certainly were not disappointed. Katie, our server, was excellent throughout, showing an excellent knowledge of the menu and great enthusiasm. The spicey calamari and shrimp was delicious though not for the faint hearted. Our son had the children's steak which was beautifully cooked and came with fries... More

This was our first time to the Keys and a friend recommended that we go to Barracuda Grill. It was by far the best meal we had our whole trip. My boyfriend had the amazing lobster tail with mashed potatoes and veggies while I had the filet mignon that was super tender and perfectly cooked. Our server, Katia (from Dallas,... More

First time to the Keys and for our first dinner we were off on the the right track. We were greeted at our table by a very friendly waitress she gave us a few chuckles and made us feel right at home. Explained some wines to us and told us about some of their local fish. I ordered the fish... More

We've been looking forward to going back to the Barracuda for several months as a family, and the good food and service was amazing yet again. Katie, our server, was a great hostess and attentive to details for each of us at the table. The soups were super fresh, and the fish and steaks were spectacular. We didn't save enough... More

I have traveled the keys many years and have had many good meals along with my fair share of tourist food... seafood that smells like bait steaks you need a chainsaw to cut. My last visit to the keys we stopped at the Barracuda Grill in Marathon... What a great move. The food and service were off the chart good.... More

I recently went to experience Barracuda Grill with some friends from work and will certainly be coming back soon! Our waitress Stephanie was very attentive and sweet, and helped me choose the most delicious lobster tail I've ever had. Stephanie portrayed the qualities of an experienced and patient server and with the great food we received it is a highly... More
