The food was good bc they kept the same menu but not as great as it once was. They need to get their act together like paying for better staff n not using what looks like inexperienced family. Hope they improve.

I ordered the brie appetizer, and it was nothing special—cheese not warm enough, sauce over top difficult to put on sesame crackers. Sesame crackers didn’t mix flavors well with brie. The tomato soup came in a ginormous bowl, enough for 6 people (to all eat...More

Don't miss this place if you are near Marathon... the food is delicious! We dined inside, but the patio would be very comfortable in cooler weather.

The new owners have really stepped up the place. It was good before even better now. We had snapper with nut butter topping. It was outstanding. The service was perfect. Courtney was our server, she was great. Definitely a goto place.

Locals, but have never been to the Baracuda. Stopped in for lunch today and was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant itself is cute, nice soothing music, tableclothes. The food was yummy. My husband and myself had blackened shrimp wraps and my dad had a burger. Wraps...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!
