Barracuda is a place for college kids. Or for those who wish they were in college. Or for those who think that if they hang around enough college kids, they are allowed to act like them. The dive bar is decorated in a manner that makes it drunken-patron-proof. Nearly everything is made of wood. Beer signs, fishing gear, and sports memorabilia - specifically from the University of Miami - share wall space with random adornments such as a zebra head and foreign currency. There are even long tables perfect for beer pong tournaments situated in the back. Barracuda has been a Coconut Grove staple for more than a decade and appreciated by "college kids" of all ages. The neighborhood joint is widely known for its eight-hour happy hour, from noon to 8 p.m. Drinkers need not limit their happiness to 60 minutes here. Customers can order their choice of more than 50 beers at the massive bar. Domestic suds go for $2.50, imports cost $3.50, and pitchers are $8 to $12. For hungry drinkers, Barracuda offers a menu full of both fresh and fried munchies. The most popular item is called "the best snapper sandwich you've ever had period" ($10). The fish is grilled in a choice of seasoning, spread with tartar sauce, and sandwiched between two slices of garlic bread. Another favorite is Matt's grouper sandwich, which is prepared and presented the same way as the snapper. Although inebriated degree-seekers pack the spot nightly, Thursday is officially college night, and ladies' night is Friday.

Miamians sure do love their pets. On Lincoln Road, hundreds of pampered pooches (and an occasional cat, monkey, or iguana) can be seen wearing designer duds. There they are, strolling on rhinestone le... More »
As Miamians, we're perpetually spoiled by our 250+ days of sunshine each year. Vitamin D is our drug of choice (one of them, anyway), so when rainy days befall us -- well, we don't know what to do wit... More »

There's not much to say about Barracuda Raw Bar and Grill (3035 Fuller St., Coconut Grove; 305-448-1144). You can smoke inside, wolf down fries and greasy burgers, and chug cheap beer. Other than a few standard features (booths, jukebox, pool... More »
Fine dining in the Keys has always been somewhat problematic for me. Seems as if any time I read or hear about a supposedly great, upscale restaurant down there and then visit it, more often than not I find the reputation has been inflated.... More »
Good place. It sucks that you have to go outside and smoke, but there's still after all these years, a bunch of old Groveites who hang and share their stories. The beer is reasonably priced, and the food always good. I miss a few of the cooks that used to be there, but as restaurants go, so do staff. This one has stuck around. The college crowds hit late at night on the weekends, so if that's not your gig, stay at home and drink. It's safer. Besides, you might want to go on a cigarette run to Kwik-Stop across Grand avenue at that hour and get mugged.
