Absolutely loved this little restaurant! We had the curry Brussel sprouts - unique dish, loved it! Sauté calamari and shrimp - again unique and loved it! Yellowtail Snapper perfectly prepared with the best mashed potatoes!!! Best part was the Cool Candle lit atmosphere.

This was our last nice meal on Marathon and this was a top rated restaurant on trip advisor. The dining area was very pleasant and the food was great. It was a little disappointing that they don't have a small bar for cocktails, but I...More

Christine P
Hello my name is Christine (Chris). We are doing a small elopement package at a small resort in Islamorada that does not offer dining options for us and our guest. We will have 9-10 people (including myself and groom) and are looking for a place to take our guest out to dinner on the night before the wedding and another place for after the wedding. The date would be 6/2/17 or 6/3/17, do you take reservations? Most of the guest eat seafood (we are mostly from the southwest so everyone loves a chance for excellent fresh fish) but I do have a couple of guest that will be more for a good steak or chicken dish with mashed potatoes. I would like to come in my wedding dress and our guest will be dressed appropriately for a beach wedding. Could we have our wedding cake delivered and served here as well? Thank you in advance for your time and help>

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!
