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!)

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

What a fabulous evening we had here this summer! We have vacationed in Marathon for many, many summers and this is truly a one-of-a-kind experience that you don't want to miss. The restaurant is casual, yet elegant at the same time and the incredibly fresh food is something you could never be disappointed in. The tomato soup is beyond compare... More

And many other superb seafood dishes. A family run restaurant with lots of charm and remarkably good food. Try lobster; try the seafood dumplings; try everything you can. Sample everything...eat there twice in two days (we would have if we could). But definitely start with the clam chowder - but beware it's big enough for 3 to share.

I've been here before a couple of years ago. It was just ok. This time it was fantastic!! Our waitress, Rachel, took care of everything. Very attentive and always giving recommendations. We had the shrimp/bacon and pot sticker appetizer. Both were fantastic and large portions. We split the pesto pasta entree. Also great. Creme brûlée was one of the best... More
