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 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!

Found Barracuda Grill on TripAdvisor, a great find. Cozy, but not pretentious with excellent food and friendly staff.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

The food is ok. A bit disappointed, mango sauce on the grouper?, no need at all!
About the pesto linguine with scallops, I ate only the scallops (delicious!) because linguine were too overcooked and there was not pesto at all!
Too expensive for such a dinner!

“Best restaurant in Marathon.”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at Hawks Cay and needed great food. We found it here. Eclectic and delicious. Even the kids enjoyed. You will not find fried stuff or burgers (thx goodness) just amazing food. Shrimp and grits were the best I have ever had!!!
