Both the appetizer and the two meals we ordered were too spicy for us. We even had to return the appetizer cheese spread as it was unbearable to eat. A little warning on the menu would have been nice. If you like spicy food, go...More

Last time we were here for mini lobster season I wanted to try barracudas but the wait was too long. Tonight we got in without a wait. Small party seating is better. Larger seating is a longer wait. The shrimp calamari appetizer was great and...More

Came back again this year to my favorite Keys restaurant. They were a little crowded when I went, but that did not stop everyone working there from having a great big smile on their face. We drank a wonderful Pinot noir while waiting, and were...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!
