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!

What a fabulous evening we had here this summer! We have vacationed in Marathon for many, many summers and this is truly a one-of-a-kind experience that you don't want to miss. The restaurant is casual, yet elegant at the same time and the incredibly fresh food is something you could never be disappointed in. The tomato soup is beyond compare and the variety of fish we indulged in was just superb! But the real clincher is how outstanding the service at Barracuda's is. Our server, Andi, was attentive in every detail of our food choices, made excellent wine recommendations to accompany them, and took care of all our needs even before we knew we had them! You can find other good restaurants, but you won't find such unique dishes and such truly fabulous service as you'll get here!

And many other superb seafood dishes. A family run restaurant with lots of charm and remarkably good food.
Try lobster; try the seafood dumplings; try everything you can. Sample everything...eat there twice in two days (we would have if we could).
But definitely start with the clam chowder - but beware it's big enough for 3 to share.
