    Eh - nothing special

    Considering all of the great choices in NY, this place is a pass. The muffins (in lieu of regular bread) were cold, the fish and chips were catfish instead of traditional cod (with no warning), the fries nothing special, and the drink service (water refills) lacking. Unmemorable.

    A fun break in the afternoon

    After hitting the open house at the Center for Book Arts, we wandered around freezing NYC in search of a very late lunch - serendipity! Spotted a 'gator in the window, a sign "Live Bait" and knew we'd found it. Nice strong marguerita, nicely hot chicken wings, friendly staff and fun trailer park atmosphere. The pulled pork bbq was not as tender as it could have been, but the key lime pie we split was divine. A fun spot to shake the winter blues in New York. We'll definitely go back again.

    Went for dinner with friends. Food was okay, atmosphere was like someone tried to make a raw bar and roadhouse but came up short. Main problem was the indifferent service, first the bartender, then our waitress, they couldn't care less. Will not go back.

    Live Bait got us hooked. :)

    This place is a real surprise. Been to many BBQ joints (Blue smoke,Tennessee Mountain, Daisy May, Pearson's, Virgils, etc...) but this place is a keeper. The Buffalo wings are well prepared, not too much sauce, but the heat is there. The Cajun fried Calamari was perfectly fried and not dry, needed some more cajun spices (personal preference). The steam littleneck clams are also very good and not over cooked and chewy. The Smoke house full rack spareribs are succulent and well portioned for the male gender. You also get two side dishes (fixins) along with some of the entree. The fixins are all very good. The one that got our attention was the sweet potato w/ mini marshmallow. The Jambalaya tasted ok, the portion was overwhelming. The Plantation Gumbo was ok, the sauce was quite thick and I couldn't see what I was eating. If you're into gumbo and jambalaya, the Sazerac House is a better choice (personal preference). I looked over to the next table and someone had ordered the blackened tuna. The presentation of it looked very appetizing. We were all fulled by the end of the night, but we were able to try the Watermelon sorbet which meet out expectations. The service was tolerable. I'm looking forward to going back to try the rest of the menu. For the price, this place is affortable. The presentation of the dishes were very good. The atmosphere is casual, with television mounted on all corners of the restaurant/bar while we watched the Yankees/Boston championship game. Great place to hangout with friends.
