This is another of our normal stops. We usually come here the first night in town because it’s close to the room and stays open late. It’s always good and everyone enjoys the fresh food and friendly service.

Stopped in at Live Bait this afternoon. The wait was reasonable around 1hour. The food was good and the prices were fair. The service was ok but not the best.

During dinner hours, no. However, they do have DJs and various other things later in the night. We had checked out their facebook page and it showed the events they had scheduled.
