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!)

The people are as good as the food, and the food is great! When I arrived before they were open the owner didn't hesitate to recommend other places to eat if I was hungry. Glad I waited because not only was the food fantastic but I had a wonderful evening visiting with the owner Lance, my server Rachel and the... More

We had a table of 8 and service was by far the best any of us has had in the Keys. We had apps and all different dishes. Everyone said it was some of the best food we have had anywhere.

Enjoyed a birthday at this cool spot. Decor was funky and upmarket. Food was stellar: we supped on the 'vicious but delicious' shrimp & calamari, hogfish, lobster, and pork shanks. Rachel, our server, was awesome and gave us great advice about both our meal and other local fun to be had. Will definitely be back!

We would have likely passed this little place by if we were just driving by, but we would have missed out on the best meal we had in the keys! Delicious! And wonderful, attentive servers and hostess.

We nearly drove past this restaurant as it looks like a casual diner. The meal proved nothing less than excellent with a good selection of dishes and a good wine list, and friendly informative service. Baked Brie was fabulous as was the crispy duckling and the prime New York strip. Only open from Wednesday to Saturday, but well worth a... More

This is a small restaurant off Overseas highway in Marathon - Doesn't look like much from the outside, and if you decide on outdoor dining you will be facing the parking lot and the traffic. That said, inside it is a very clean and welcoming restaurant. It is decorated with barracudas on the walls which make it fun. Tables come... More

The food was good here and they had a nice sit down air condition restaurant. The negative was the service. We had a party of 2 and it took us about 15 minutes for a table. The party of 8 that showed up 5 minutes after us, got seated before us. It took a good 10 minutes for a waitress... More

I'm sorry to hear that you were unhappy with your recent visit. The Barracuda's policy is to seat on a first-come, first-serve basis. The party of eight that was seated before you was actually the other half of a party of 16 that was already sitting. On the Saturday night that you dined with us, we were very busy and... More
