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 :) Our menu is updated and printed daily.

We picked this restaurant based on the reviews. We stopped in without a reservation and sat outside since there was a party in the main room. Service was great and the food came out very quickly. Grouper and short ribs were amazing and the key lime pie was the best that we have had in the keys. Would definitely visit... More

After reading reviews on this site we decided to try out Barracuda Grill. We were not disappointed! The server, Katie, was super friendly and attentive. I had the grouper- the portion was enormous! My husband had the tuna and said it was mild but tasty. The mashed potatoes were delicious! We definitely would recommend this place to others.

My husband and I had dinner here the other night. His grouper was amazing and my tuna was one of the best I ever had. Service was great and the desserts divine

We have not been to Barracuda Grill for several years, our friends took us there several days ago. We had a truly perfect meal! My friend and I shared the lamb chops, and were delighted from the salad course with those delicious homemade dressings, to the succulent entree! Rachel is our FAVORITE server in the Keys!

We went for a very nice end of day meal and were plaesantly surprised by the excellent Hogfish Snapper special. Every meal there is an experience, topped off by the wild chef, Lance Hill. What a hoot!!

My husband spent 4 days traveling between Key Largo & Key West - for seafood, snorkeling & lodging. BEST ACCIDENTAL FIND was the Barracuda Grill, late on a Friday nite. Grilled pompano w/ a mango salsa, veggies al dente & perfectly seasoned. Also Hogfish also w/ a great sauce. We were too full for dessert. This chef knows how to... More

Been there twice and would not hesitate to recommend it. A favorite of locals and out of town foodies who frequently visit Marathon. Lance, Jan and crew have put together a great bistro with a laid back but sophisticated ambience, a perfectly executed eclectic menu and a wine selection you'd have to go to Miami to match. Try the hogfish.... More

Upscale seafood. The whole family enjoyed the grouper. Nice laid back atmosphere. You can eat inside or outside. Friendly service.

I wanted to eat here again because my first visit was so awesome! I was not disappointed. From the courteous hostess to our on point server Andy, we had a perfect meal. This is the best cuisine you will find in Marathon, if not the entire Keys. Appetizers included grouper cheeks(melt in your mouth), seared tuna tuna , calamari and... More
