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 love this restaurant. The food is fabulous and the owners/chefs are delightful. Lance loves to circulate around the dining room and visit with you. Everything is great but the scallops are to die for. The rib-eye is beyond compare. The waitresses are friendly and the service is impeccable. We go frequently and have never had a meal we didn't...

The red hot calamari is breathtaking. I loved it and must go back to satisfy my desire for the delicious little critters in that amazing sauce. Katia was a fantasic server and was a hoot! Sarah also helped us out and she was really nice. The bananna foster at the end was the best ive ever had as well. We... More

From the atmosphere to the food to the service, our meal at the Barracuda was top notch. Katia was very friendly and attentive, and the meal itself was overwhelmingly good. The 22oz ribeye was cooked to perfection, definitely a must try! I recommend the Barracuda to anyone looking for a great dining experience.

Where do the locals go when they want a nice indoor setting plus great service? Barracuda Grill of course. The spicy calamari is worth the trip! Addicting and satisfying. I crave it often. My other go to are the scallops - on top of pasta with garlic, pesto, garlic and more garlic. Wanting another helping right now. Service is always... More

Almost everyone does calamari the same old way, fried fried fried...boring....if you like calamari come try the Barracuda Grills famous and addicting dish called RED HOT CALAMARI sometimes offered with shrimp mixed in too. The rings are sauteed in a garlic Habanero broth made with a base of their house hot sauce Barracuda Bite- the big bowl they serve is... More

Been here 3 nights in a row and each meal is an even better experience than the last one. Best food and best service anywhere in the keys! Rachel is a fantastic waitress and the owner/chef is a magician in the kitchen. If you've been here you know what I mean. If you haven't...

The best tomato soup ever, they make it with love. We also had fresh bread, large salad and a wonderful grouper entree. The service was outstanding and the chefs/hosts were extremely gracious. A super evening.
