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 food, wines 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 :)

Last night I had dinner at The Barracuda with a couple of girlfriends and we had the best time. The restaurant's atmosphere takes you out of the Keys momentarily. It also delivers an upscale experience without the snobby waitstaff or under-portioned plates. Not only was our server Katie so sweet and knowledgable, but the food was filling and delicious. We...

Barracuda is a must when you're in Marathon. Not only is the food and atmosphere wonderful but our server, Katie, was what made our experience incredible. Make sure to request katie as your server to have the dinner of a lifetime!

Being from Long Island NY, There is a plethora of excellent restaurants that makes one jaded, especially when it comes to service and Italian food. So walking into Barracuda Grill we were impressed with the atmosphere and coziness without even sitting down. After a minor wait we were seated and what unfolded in front of us was an unbelievable experience.... More

We ate here while in Marathon two years ago and my review mentioned "pepper" well they still use it but changed my rating from 4 to 5 stars. Couple years ago had a Mahi smoked spread, this year was Wahoo smoked spread...couldn't finish it but we certainly did at home next day or two. We also shared the Lobster Bisque,... More

I love this restaurant, it is always good and they have a great wine list which is reasonable as far as pricing goes and variation. The duck is great and any fish special they have on the menu.

We frequent this restaurant as much as we can. Great for special celebrations as well as regular nights. Some of their dishes are pricier, but well worth it and the portions are huge! Highly recommend the lamb, full rack and great for sharing! Always fantastic food, drinks, and the service is superb in this relaxed atmosphere. Always recommend this place... More

We come to Marathon every year in January. This was our first time at the Barracuda. We both had the Hog Fish. It was prepared perfectly with a delicious sauce. It came with smashed potatoes, vegetables and salad. Everything was delicious. All salad dressings are home made. We both chose the creamy peppercorn which was super. The restaurant has a... More

The food is incredible , ate with a large group and everyones dinner was great. The lamb is the best I've ever had, the red hot calamari and the escargot appetizers are incredible. The eclairs are homemade and delicious, our server Katia reccomended a zinfandel which was perfect. Can't wait to eat here again!!
