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!)

Good food and music starting at 9pm

Walke to this grill from our motel in search of food and drink. Everything was great. Music started at 9pm, Pool table available. What more do you need?

I wish we did have a pool table! You probably have us confused with the Hurricane Grill which is just a short walk from our place. Our server's go there to catch Igor & Red Elvises - Your Favorite Band! And their Pizza is wicked good. Change this review to 5 stars and we'll call it even :) 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!!

I attended a very special dinner for a friend last week, it was my first time dining at the restaurant. I've heard great things and was looking forward to trying it for myself. The wine selection was impressive, and our server, Katia, was clearly well versed and knowledgeable on both the food and beverage menu. Katia brought out all of... More

Nice place to have dinner however, the menu needs more selections. I think this would have made my experience here alittle more enjoyable.
