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!

Wished we had found this earlier - but definitely will be back next trip. Great atmosphere and great food and service. Scallops were perfectly cooked and tender. Nice fresh veggies, short but high quality wine list. They open at 5:55 PM! Except when the time changes, then it is 6.25 PM. It had been recommended by the owner of the home that we were renting and was the best place we found in 3 years of visiting Marathon. Several people came to the door, saw the menu and left ... it's pricey but worth it for the quality. Can eat inside or out, but outside is right next to Highway 1 and smokers were outside. No reservations. First come, first served. Casual dress like the rest of the Keys. Enjoy.

Everything was awesome from Barracuda Grill. The food, service, atmosphere was top notch. We ordered the potstickers, brussel sprouts, tuna, and shrimp appetizers. All was extremely fresh and tasty. Best part - the creme brulee for dessert! Definitely eating here again when in Marathon next.

We loved this place from the moment we arrived! The service was amazing! Super friendly & helpful! We had the calamari and tuna for appetizers. The lamb for dinner. Everything was delicious! We loved the atmosphere & felt like the quality of food/service was well worth the price.

So, we’ve lived in Marathon for nearly three years and this is the one restaurant we’ve never taken the time to go to. Well, needless to say we’ve missed out. Big time. This place is fabulous. Everyone at our table ordered something different and each dish was incredible. Bravo Barracuda Grill!!! And special thanks to our waitress Rachel. You guys are awesome.

So... ya pretty much the best meal in town. Fine dinning with a casual atmosphere. I had the Lamb, wife had the baby steak. Each was wonderfully cooked and presentation was excellent!
Miami dinning in the Keys! Ask for Rachel was very attentive, and took great care of us!
