  • "Food was great, little expensive but tastes good. Service was friendly & prompt. Quiet when we went which was nice for us. Beer choices was neat but would prefer a pitcher of Keith's. "

  • "We had a party of 10 for my father's 91st birthday lunch. Everyone enjoyed the occasion and the food. Our server was terrific and the manager came over several times to make sure everyone was well looked after and enjoying themselves. This is our second visit to Live Bait and we would have no hesitation returning. The restaurant was also very easy to access for my mom who is in a wheel chair."

  • "Reservation was 6:30. Kids meals cam 7:30, adult meals came slightly after 8pm. By then kids were done and starting to get bored. Waitress kept coming by asking if we wanted her to check on our order but never came back to tell us when we could expect it. Food was pretty good, but not worth the 2.5 hour hassle. We won't be back."

  • "My girlfriend and I are the most easy going people ever. The atmosphere was great, good was great, staff was great except for our server.we didn't get our oysters we ordered as appetizers, she was very impatient and made us feel uncomfortable. In The spirit of the season we left her a tip, an adequate one at that, otherwise I would have left her only a verbal tip if u get my drift. Not to mentioned we trekked all the way from Hamilton for this. Nevertheless, I would still recommend , trusting you don't get our service"

  • "Great evening. Food was good, our grandson (16) found wings terrific and our appetizers ( mussels and crab) delicious. Shrimp taco shells innovative and good and chips & chips nice portion. Beers were good and service excellent. Music a tad loud and tvs on all the sport stations well located. Well located ( neighborhood) near theatre etc."

  • "First impression was good when we walked in but it slowly went downhill from there. After we were seated we were greeted and the waitress took our drink order. They have a lengthy craft beer list which is something that is nice. Always good to try something that you have not had before. I would say that this was the highlight of the dining experience. Appetizers were on the decent side but once the main course came it was difficult to finish some of the food. They are trying to improve on service and dishes because the owner came over and offered another meal at no additional cost. She even took it off the bill which was a nice gesture. Would I go back? For dinner - NO. For drinks and live music - YES."

  • "We really enjoyed our first time. It was a late dinner and we had kids, so It seemed to be a perfect fit for a last minute find. The food was really good and my fav was the calamari . Will be returning. It was also well priced!"

  • "We started with the Colossal Onion Rings - for $8.99 you would expect more than 1 large onion ring with 4 small ones. They tasted good however for the value it was lacking. I ordered the Chicken Fettucine and the pasta was undercooked and the dish lacked seasoning. We had to request salt and pepper for our table so that we could add flavor to the food. Hubby ordered the Rainbow Trout and both the trout and quinoa were very bland. The service was good but will not make up for the taste of food. Will not be visiting anytime soon."

  • "Wide open concept, split into 3 areas. the bar side is all booths, the other two are high top tables and padded benches that can be arranged however you choose depending on group size. Higher slightly than average chain restaurant prices, but a bigger variety and specials offered with unique seafood. Warm draft, inexperienced bartender obviously. Food taste was good! The server had to constantly be chased to come to the table, when needed. Appetizers not completed when dinners were brought out. No one cleared appetizer plates from in front of each guest and expected the customer to move and hold it while "hot plates" were delivered. Overall, this place could be acceptable but seems they hired very inexperienced staff at all positions"

  • "Went for a family birthday dinner and selected an early reservation. Food was great! However, the price point is on the high end for Milton, turning this into a 'special occasion' place rather than a regular hangout. Downside was a family who let their young toddler run and scream all over the place and the staff did nothing to request that the parents control their kid. This child ruined the dining pleasure for us. I'll probably try it again but at a later time when kids aren't there."
