Are You Gonna Eat That?
You can go to just about any restaurant in the United States and get a cheeseburger and chicken fingers, so how about trying something different?
Live Bait Food & Fun has a wide selection of food that can be considered out of the ordinary. We have starters, salads, main dishes, desserts, and more.
Can I Interest You In An Appetizer?
Anyone can deep fry some mushrooms or onion rings, but how about trying some crab claws or blackened gator? Another favorite, Greek Seafood Nachos, is made from shrimp and crawfish piled on top of house-fried wontons and topped with onion, olives, banana peppers, and spinach cheese sauce. That’s not something you’re going to find at the Waffle House!
You Say Ersters, I Say Oysters…
What’s a trip to the beach without having some oysters? Live Bait serves them raw with cocktail sauce, horseradish, and crackers. If raw isn’t your thing, then try our Oysters Rockefeller. Our freshly shucked oysters are topped with our signature seasoned spinach and grated cheese and then baked to a golden brown. Maybe you want something with a little more kick. Our Cajun Oysters might be for you, then. We bake our fresh oysters with Tasso ham and crawfish, making your table a little piece of the bayou.
Mi Casa, Su Casa
Our house specialties are one of the things that bring people back to Live Bait over and over. We have a fresh catch of the day, right from the Gulf. We’ll prepare it grilled, fried, or blackened to your taste. Other specialties include Shrimp & Grits: blackened shrimp on top of grits with Gouda cheese and a creole beurre blanc drizzle. Another popular dish is our Pontchartrain Red Fish. This consists of a blackened red fish on a bed of rice with a rich seafood cream sauce, mushrooms, and shrimp. We have trouble deciding ourselves on which dish we like the best.
Care For Dessert?
Our desserts are so good, you might have trouble deciding which one to choose. A local favorite is our Live Bait rice pudding, a creamy dessert that takes us back to our childhood. A good dessert for your time on the beach is our Key Lime Pie. The perfect blend of tart and sweet, it’s summertime anytime you eat this delicious treat. “You got your peanut butter in my chocolate!” “No, you got your chocolate in my peanut butter!” You’re both right with our Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie. This rich mix of flavors is a favorite of young and old. You can’t go wrong with Live Bait’s line of desserts.
Take A Walk On The Wild Side
No matter your preference, Live Bait Food & Fun has the dish for you. Try something different, what do you have to lose? You just might find a new favorite! Check out our menu for even more choices to excite your taste buds.

Drink It In, Man!
Live Bait Food & Fun is known for its delicious food and hot dance floor, but did you know we have some of the best bartenders and drinks in Orange Beach? Here are some of the favorite drinks of our friends that come to have a good time.
A traditional Cuban drink, the Mojito, has gained popularity in the last couple of years. Refreshing, with a mint leave in it, the Mojito can be made with different flavored liqueurs to customize your drink to your liking.
Want dessert? Or a drink? Why not both? Try a Mudslide, a mixture of Kahlua, Bailey’s Irish Cream and more for an adult chocolate shake and how can you go wrong with that?
Ever had a Fuzzy Navel? And no, we’re not talking about seeing our bouncer, Carl, with his shirt off. The Fuzzy Navel is a perfect summer drink full of peach and orange flavors.
Do You Like Pina Coladas?
When you hear “Blue Hawaiian” do you think of Elvis? The Blue Hawaiian is a tasty drink flavored like a pina colada and it’s blue! How fun and festive!
The Bushwacker can be best described as a creamy chocolate pina colada. This tasty drink has many origin stories, but Live Bait has adapted it and it has become one of our most popular drinks.
Ooh La La
Maybe you want to appear a little more sophisticated. Then order a French 75, a mix of gin, lemon juice, and champagne. It looks like something from the Prohibition Era but tastes divine.
Made popular by the women on Sex and the City, the Cosmopolitan is a favorite of a lot of people for its fancy look and great fruity taste.
Relax On The Beach
You’re in Orange Beach, so you’re already in a tropical frame of mind, so why not order a Sex On The Beach. This drink just tastes like summer with a blend of peach, orange, and cranberry flavors.
Served in a hurricane glass, the Mai Tai is a sweet and fruity drink that is a perfect accent to a hot night out with your friends.
Maybe you just want a simple drink, then try our large selection of wines and beers. Our bartenders are happy to mix up any drink you’d like or just pull you a cold and frosty one. No matter what your drink of choice is, Live Bait is the place for cold drinks, hot music, and good times!
Enjoy your drinks while dining in our restaurant, dancing in our nightclub, or relaxing at our Tiki Bar. No matter where you enjoy your drinks, do it safely and responsibly. And don’t forget we have a free shuttle if you party a little too much.

Purple, Green…and Orange?
Everyone knows about the big party on Bourbon Street in New Orleans, but did you know that there’s a Mardi Gras parade in Orange Beach? Mardi Gras got its start in Mobile back in 1703, fifteen years before New Orleans was even founded, so we’ve had a few years to get it right!
Orange Beach’s Mardi Gras celebration isn’t quite as old as Mobile’s, but we still know how to have a party! Back in 1978, some locals created the Pleasure Island Players and the rest is history. They started a parade to celebrate Mardi Gras and a year later the Mystic Order of Shiners joined them, making it a party!
Throw Me Some Beads!
There is no shortage of parades and parties in the Orange Beach area. Starting with the Krewe De La Dauphine Mardi Gras Parade on January 28th in Dauphin Island, Carnival continues throughout the month of February ending with the Order of Myths Mardi Gras Parade, the oldest Mardi Gras parade in the country. Click here for a complete schedule of parades in the Orange Beach area.
Food & Fun!
What are you going to do after the parades? If you’re like us, you’re going to keep on partying and celebrating. Come to Live Bait Food & Fun for some delicious food, fun drinks, and hot music and dancing. We’re here to make your Mardi Gras more fun than anything they can do in NOLA. Bring your crew to the Tiki Bar, our restaurant, or to our swinging nightclub. Give us a call and we’ll even pick you up in our Live Bait Party Bus, so you don’t have to worry about parking or driving.
Dance the night away while dining on starters like our onion blossom, blackened gator, seafood nachos, and more. You can also enjoy oysters, crab legs, shrimp, and other delicious seafood items. If seafood isn’t your thing, we have a variety of pasta, sandwiches, and hand-cut steaks. No matter what your favorite food is, Live Bait serves it up with a side dish of fun!
Every day is a party in Orange Beach and especially at Live Bait Food & Fun, but Mardi Gras puts a little something extra into the air. Make sure you are a part of the festivities and make Live Bait a stop while you’re here. Contact us and learn more about how Live Bait can turn your celebration up a notch or two.
Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Winter technically hasn’t even started and I know a lot of you are already tired of it! Snow is starting to blow around parts of the country and temperatures are dropping. But in Orange Beach, winter is a whole lot different. Our temperatures are mild and there is no snow or ice to have to deal with. The average temperature between November and March is in the mid-60s. Much better than subzero with windchills on top it. Take a break from shoveling your driveway and check out the hot food and music at Live Bait Food and Fun!
Orange Beach Activities
There are a lot of activities in Orange Beach during the winter months. Here are some of our favorites to chase away the winter blues:
Reese’s Senior Bowl: College football’s senior showcase, featuring the best seniors in the game coached by NFL coaching staffs.
Gulf Shores Mardi Gras Parade: This parade was started in 1978 with just a small group of locals, forming the Pleasure Island Players. It was then joined by The Mystic Order of Shriners and now the oldest parade in the county.
Bellingrath’s Annual Magic Christmas Lights: Enjoy one of the most popular holiday events in the Southeast. Stroll through the gardens with more than three million twinkling lights in over 1,000 custom designed set pieces in 14 scenes.
Arctic Express: Located at Wales West RV Resort & Light Railway, this is a unique holiday experience. Ride an authentic steam train through a winter wonderland of lights and decorations and visit with Santa at the end.

Seafood or Not, We’ll Fill Your Belly
When you think of eating at a place called “Live Bait” your mind probably goes to thoughts of fresh seafood, right? Well, you’d be half right! Live Bait Food & Fun is home to delicious ocean delicacies, but it also has a wide variety of “non-seafood” dishes, too. Check out our lunch and dinner menus for our large selection of unique and delicious choices.
Tidal Wave of Tastes
Live Bait has a wide selection of seafood. You can start your meal with starters and appetizers that include seafood gumbo, crab claws either fried or sauteed or maybe you’d like to try our Greek seafood nachos. What’s a Greek seafood nacho, you ask? It’s shrimp and crawfish piled on top of fried wontons. On top of that, there are piles of red onion, kalamata olives, banana peppers, tomatoes, scallions and a delicious spinach cheese sauce.
If you’re still hungry after your appetizer, Live Bait has plenty of seafood options. We are proud of our oysters and we offer three varieties:
- Raw Oysters: served with cocktail sauce, horseradish sauce, and crackers
- Oysters Rockefeller: shucked oysters topped with seasoned spinach and grated Parmesan cheese and baked
- Cajun Oysters: baked oysters served with Tasso ham and crawfish
Other choices from the ocean include our fresh Gulf catch of the day. You can have it grilled, fried or blackened. We also serve every day fresh choices like mahi, sesame tuna, Pontchartrain redfish, grilled shrimp and cedar plank salmon. We also serve fried combination platters that include fish, shrimp, oysters and stuffed crab, served with seafood gumbo, hush puppies, fries, and coleslaw. If you’re looking for a healthier alternative, choose our steamed platter: snow crab legs, shrimp, and crab claws served with corn and new potatoes. No matter what you choose, you’ll be full!
Are you looking for something distinctly Southern? Try our shrimp and grits meal! This awesome dish is blackened shrimp served on top of creamy stone-ground Gouda cheese grits with a creole beurre blanc drizzle. You’ll be speaking with a Southern drawl before you’re done eating this!
Land Lubbers Unite!
Maybe seafood isn’t your thing. (We won’t judge you, we promise!) Well, you’re in luck, Live Bait Food & Fun has plenty of other choices that are just as unique and delicious as our seafood choices. We have traditional appetizers like chicken fingers, fried dill pickles, onion blossom and our famous Bait Nachos. One of our favorites is our spinach and artichoke dip. The dip is made with feta, mozzarella, Parmesan, and cream cheese mixed with spinach and artichokes and served hot with grilled pita bread.
For people looking for something light for dinner or lunch, you can choose from one of our healthy and refreshing salads: Caesar, garden, quinoa kale or wedge. (You can add chicken, shrimp or salmon to our salads, we won’t tell anyone.)
If your appetite is looking for something a little heartier, you can sample our penne pasta dishes or a hamburger or chicken, bacon, and swiss sandwich. Oh, and don’t forget about our famous steaks! We offer a 14oz hand-cut ribeye or an 8 oz hand-cut filet mignon. Our steaks are Certified Angus and are served with a baked potato and side salad.
Oh, One More Thing
One of our more unique dishes is blackened gator. This dish is alligator blackened with savory spices and served on a bed of rice and a creole beurre blanc. But should this be considered a surf or a turf dish? According to the archbishop of New Orleans, Gregory M. Aymond, it is ok to eat alligator during Lent. So there you have it! Who are we to argue with The Big Guy?
No matter what you are looking for, you won’t go away from Live Bait Food and Fun hungry. Come try us for lunch or dinner and either try something new or stick with one of your favorites. And make sure you try one of our decadent desserts.
