Five of us ate at The Barracuda Grill last Saturday night and it was a great meal. We tried the very spicy calamari, which is sauteed rather than fried, and served in a bowl of stock which was "toned down" but still gave us a...More

We found the Barracuda Grill listed in a Keys Planner book. It listed the prices of entrees at $10-$20. The building was very plain from outside and the decor inside was simple but the food was fantastic. We arrived just after it opened on a...More

We were staying at Indigo Reef and decided to give the Barracuda Grill a try based on previous reviews. Be prepared - it's right on rt 1 and looks like a diner. However, we could not recommend the place more. The relaxed atmosphere belies the...More

We stayed for 2 weeks in the Keys and Everglades, tried lots of different restaurants, and the Barracuda was one of only two that we would recommend. We went on Valentines Day ( unfortunately also my birthday!) and it was very busy, but the food...More

After reading all these reviews and recommendations from Frommers and other guides, I knew this place had to be 'it'. Imagine our surprise when we pulled up to this garage like diner. No aesthetics whatsoever. But looks aren't everything so we held out hope. We...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!
