Barracuda’s Bar and Grille

Barracuda’s Bar and Grille in New Smyrna Beach is the epitome of beach bars and offers something for everyone. The newly renovated restaurant is island-inspired not only in décor, but the food as well. You’ll easily spot the vibrant orange and green building situated across from the Flagler Avenue public parking lot.

Barracuda’s motto is “Fresh seafood, cold drinks, and good friends” and they excel on every level. This restaurant has quickly become a community favorite, with many locals referring to it as our very own “Cheers” hangout.img_1930

Located at 203 S. Atlantic, Barracuda’s is an ideal place to kick back and unwind. Enjoy a casual and relaxed dining experience inside the restaurant, outside under the covered deck, or on the top deck outfitted with an open fire pit. The recently expanded stage provides additional seating for those who enjoy a front row seat for live entertainment.

The eclectic menu includes a unique selection of appetizers, fresh garden salads, oven baked flatbreads, wings, burgers, and local seafood. Many ingredients are sourced from local farmers and fishermen and delivered fresh on a daily basis.img_1909

Vegans and vegetarians will appreciate the variety of non-meat options including: Barracuda’s Ocean Gardens salad, grilled hearts of Romaine, That’s Amore flatbread, and their delectable 3rd Ave veggie burger.

There’s plenty of goodness for children too. The Little Cuda’s menu includes favorites like hot dogs, chicken nuggets, grilled cheese, mozzarella sticks, and fettuccine alfredo.

Sports enthusiasts will appreciate the abundance of big screen TVs strategically placed around the massive bar. Here, you can indulge in classic wings and burgers, or seafood appetizers like fried calamari, crab cakes, and buffalo shrimp while rooting for your favorite team. If you prefer lighter fare while watching the game, try Barracuda’s specialty flatbreads or salads.

Gather with friends throughout the week and chill out with Barracuda’s Happy Hour specials.

Each Monday, guys get half-off their entire bill when they sit at the bar. Ladies can take advantage of the same special each Thursday. Enjoy half-off select draft beer, house wine and liquor from 11am-7pm every Tuesday, or take advantage of Hump Day drink specials each Wednesday.

Along with serving food at the restaurant, Barracuda’s offers catering for special events such as weddings, bridal showers, anniversaries, and graduations. The owners also welcome private events and can accommodate up to 80 people on their top deck.

When you arrive at Barracuda’s you can expect to be greeted with a smile and a sincere welcome. The staff members are a friendly group who strive to ensure you have an enjoyable meal prepared from the freshest ingredients and served near one of the most beautiful beaches in sunny Florida.
