The service & food is always high quality. The owners treat everyone of their customers as friends. Very impressed! I would recommend the Baracuda Grill to anyone that enjoys eating out in the Keys. Located in Matathon it's a short drive from any island.

Although small and rather expensive, it's well worth the price. The food is consistently wonderful, and the menu is varied unlike most restaurants in the keys. Our waitress, Katie, has taken care of us more than once. Her attitude is sweet and cheerful. I'm hoping that their clam chowder comes back on the menu soon! Thank you for a memorable... More

We can hardly wait to get back to the Barracuda Grill. My neighbors just returned from a pre hurricane visit to the Keys and told me about their great visit to the restaurant. By the way, if people think their prices are too high, they haven't been to Key West. We leave for the keys on October 15th. Good bye... More

We were going to another restaurant nearby but it was closed. Bummed, we decided to hit the BC because the parking lot was packed. Glad we did! The food was fresh, plentiful and delicious. From wings to shrimp to tuna, everybody at the table left impressed and stuffed. Only bad thing was we couldn't eat any dessert as we were... More

Had an excellent dinner at the Barracuda Grill. This restaurant has limited opening hours and especially the beef and lamb is a bit pricey but all the food we had was really good, both from taste as from quality of ingredients point of view. They also have an excellent wine list. I loved the food and the experience and considered... More

Stopped here as it was open late. Loves it! I had pasta with homemade sauce and meatballs. Largest serving ever. Had enough to take to our room for my husband to try another night. He had the pulled pork ribs. Amazing!!!

Was in Marathon for a few days of fishing, and we love to eat out. Went here based on TripAdvisor reviews, and are really happy we did. The place is small, but elegantly decorated, and we were greeted by a young lady with a dazzling and warm smile. Our server was also very warm, and the food was incredible. Short... More

Our family of 5 went to dinner on Thursday, we all had something different, but tasted everything. The seafood, steaks, short ribs, appetizers and desserts were fantastic. The chef owners Jan and Lance came out to talk with us. Our waitress Christina was very attentive. The entire wait staff worked together so we never had to ask for anything. Our... 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 22 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 (unlike some). 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 (Wednesday thru Saturday). PS. We are in the twilight of our cooking careers and look forward to serving you very soon!
