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!)

Barracuda is a locals' favorite where I've eaten many times; most recently last night. We arrived at opening time of 6:30 to allow ample time to dine prior to viewing sunset from the nearby Old Seven Mile Bridge. I must say that it is not our custom to dine this early, nor are we normally on any time constraint. Despite... More

Two days in a row we eat here because it's that good! Fantastic, fresh, innovative and delicious. The service is superb- everyone goes out of their way to attend to each patron- thank you Rachel. We will definitely return. Everything...everything was excellent!

My husband and I are livelong residents of the middle keys and regularly dine at the Barracuda Grill. It is our number one choice for dinner (and closed for lunch). Each night features a fresh set of menu options with some steady standby selections as well. I love the heat of the red hot calamari and shrimp; he enjoys the... More

My date and I shared the escargot appetizer (big enough for four people) and the lamb entrée, which was tender and flavorful. The garlic peppersorn dressing was intense and thick, not your usual watery boring restaurant salad dressing. Our server, Katie, was quick and helpful, and even covered up for me when I spilt my wine. Five stars!

We had a fantastic meal at the Barracuda! We have a big Italian family, so great food and a welcoming atmosphere are always a must ;) Our waitress, Rachel, made us feel at home as soon as we waked in the door, setting the stage with big smiles and great wine and food recommendations. The food was delicious and the... More

From the street it doesn't look like much. But be sure to stop. Excellent food. Great service. Loved the bacon maple shrimp!

We had a waitress named Sarah who had attended the University in our city and she was fantastic. We had the spicy calamari and shrimp and also the pork potstickers for appetizers and they were delicious! We had the grouper, the BBQ platter and the kids spaghetti for entrees. Really good. The kids menu includes a free ice cream dessert... More

I couldn't be happier with my experience at Barracuda Grill. While visiting The Keys we ate there every chance we could get! You must try the escargot--best I have ever had and the scallops were seared to perfection. The service was top notch--we loved Rachel! And to top it off the wine list is fantastic. Simply perfect, can't wait to... More

Ordered the Brie and tomato soup as an appetizer, both were wonderful, and more than enough to split. The salad dressing (blue cheese) tasted homemade and amazing, and our dinners, lamb and scallops, were incredible. Nice wine list, and our server, Katie, was very attentive.
