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.
