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 21 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 (unlike some). 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 (Monday thru Saturday). PS. We are in the twilight of our cooking careers and look forward to serving you very soon!

Phenomenal Everything

I was blown away with this place. Super awesome friendly staff and phenomenal dishes! Manager, chef/owner and servers were very welcoming - felt right at home in the relaxing atmosphere. Appetizers were delightful and entrees are mouthwatering. A MUST when visiting Marathon.

We love this unique and intimate restaurant. Chef Lance provides an excellent menu and wine list. The maple/bacon shrimp appetizer was excellent. Always a fresh, crisp salad is served. Truly enjoyed the scallops and pesto fettuccine.

We split 2 meals, roasted duck and scallops with fettuccine . Both were excellent. The service was great. Which should be expected since the prices were very high. Nice decor as well. Soft lighting. Good experience overall but we will have to limit how often we can eat there due to cost.

You can always depend on the food and service to be consistently good at the Barracuda. Love their beer and wine selection and menu provides selections that will appease both locals and tourists. It all can be served to you while you enjoy the barracuda themed art/décor and are catered to by the local ,hardworking and kind staff that they... More

My family and I went to eat here a few nights ago. The server, Andi, was on point with every part of our experience. My kids had the mac and cheese which was to die for and my wife and I split the lamb. It was cooked to perfection, will definitely be back.

First do not go by the menu on the Internet. This restaurant's menu changes daily. I wanted the drunken oIives but the price has now gone up to $16.99 for a martini glass full. We had the smoked fish dip. We could not taste any fish because the dip was so peppery My husband had the tuna with a wasabi... More

First of all, let me restate a couple of figures about Trip Advisor: They have a rich database of user-generated travel information, which now totals 225 million reviews! That's impressive, and I have encouraged all my servers to buy the stock (TRIP). I will be doing the same on any pullbacks. And then sitting on my backside holding the stock... More

I have to say that this was the best meal that we've had by a long shot on our trip to Hawk's Cay! We had the seafood scampi, Caesar salad with chicken (one of the best that I've ever had, and I've had a lot of Caesar salads in my life!) and my children had the spaghetti and meatballs and... More
