Not all that many decent restaurants in Marathon, so thought we'd try this place even though there were only 2 cars outside on a Sat. night. Fortunately, the menu was posted and we took a look. 45.- for 4 scallops, 46.- for duck --- insane....More

Don't miss out on this five star GEM! The Rack of Lamb is by far the best in the world and I have eaten all over the world. The Shrimp and Calamari appetizer is a must. Don't miss out on the best restaurant in the...More

Barracuda Grill is with out a doubt one of the best restaurants in Marathon. It's maybe the only place where you will consistently receive good food, service, and atmosphere. Kasey took care of us the other night and made us feel like family. Courses were...More

There's nothing specifically wrong with The Barracuda Grill. The decor is OK, Service is OK, Food is OK. However, when the bill comes you just feel that it's 10% or 20% too much money for what you get. The food's not brilliant; there's better dining...More

We had heard that the Barracuda Grill was probably the best restaurant in Marathon. We had dinner there on 7-22-17 and now can verify that it is. The food was incredible and surpassed our expectations. As good as the food was our waitress Stephanie was...More

Both the appetizer and the two meals we ordered were too spicy for us. We even had to return the appetizer cheese spread as it was unbearable to eat. A little warning on the menu would have been nice. If you like spicy food, go...More

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, beers 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 23 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. As a side note: we are not the least expensive restaurant in town, nor are we the most expensive. We provide an honest example of the expense to this site for your comparison. And the menu is hung just outside the front door. We do not automatically add a gratuity as routine. In this life I've found, you truly get what you pay for. At Barracuda Grill we respect that adage, respect your business and attempt to earn it every night we offer service (Thursday thru Saturday). PS. We are in the twilight of our cooking careers and look forward to serving you very soon!
