Wonderful experience, over the top great service from ALL members of the staff. Food was great also, good selections, good atmosphere, awesome night out, thanks.
Nice place ..
Amazing food and super friendly staff. The perfect spot for seafood. Very laid back/casual spot.
We loved this restaurant! Next time we know to make reservations. Worth the 40 min wait for a table. My wife had the salmon, and I had the ribeye steak. Both cooked to amazing perfection, and the crab cakes were so most and delicious. I'm not normally a crab guy, but these were incredible. The only thing I would have to complain about were the drinks were way too strong, and or server did nothing to remedy them. She was a wonderful server otherwise. We will be back. More...
Good food and good service

If you want the best seafood dishes in the midwest this is the place. Their lobster mac and cheese is my all time favorite but any dish I've tried is amazing! Fun and creative signature drinks each week also. More...

Amazing place! Great prices!!!
Wonderful and great service!
Husband and I went for a long overdue date night. Worth the drive up from Hutchinson. Lovely atmosphere and great food! So glad you can find this quality in this area!
Excellent! A nice experience with excellent food and service.
Food was teriffic as usual, and service was timely (even though it was crowded).
Great dinner. We ate family style having the Mac and cheese with lobster, shrimp and grits, parmesan encrusted over a bed of grits and a whole lobster. To start us out we had the calamari, fish tacos and the ribs. The ribs were not a hit because they were dry. Also the whole lobster was a little small. The menu is not the norm for this area and that's a good thing. All 3 of my dinner guest have never had grits with some never having fish tacos. They walked out of the restaurant talking about how good grits and fish tacos are. A very good dinning experience with a more southern (coastal) menu. More...
Great service and wonderful food and atmosphere
Great food, great service. Fantastic place.
Really good but pretty pricey
The food was worth an hour 15min drive. The food was fresh, service was amazing. Chef came out personally to ask how the food was. We will be going back. I have had a few friends already check it out after I told them about this jem of a restaurant. My friends agreed it was some of the best fresh seafood they have had. More...
These guys know how to cook!
Why drive to the cities for great food? Cokato is just a 12-minute drive from Silver Lake and Bait and Hook has all the charm, quality, and variety of a big-city reataurant. We were pleased with every course from app to dessert, and we now have a place close by to go for dates and friendly gatherings. More...
I love that there is an upscale restaurant in this area. I would have given five stars except it was too hot and too loud, but those things don't affect the food, which was amazing!!
This restaurant is absolutely wonderful! Great food and service every single time!
Wonderful place to have a quiet dinner!
As always, it was great! Food and service were exveptional!
What a great place! The staff was super nice and the food we had was delicious! I would recommend this restaurant to everyone!!
Great spot! Salmon and calamari were our favorites!
We got in for Valentines Day Service on a cancellation. So glad we did!! Atmosphere was warm with white linens, candles and flowers on every table. Food was to die for!! So glad to have this hidden gem so close to home!! Our meal could rival any big name, highly rated restaraunt in Minnesota!! More...
Loved it! Great service, excellent quality, great prices! Will be back!
Highly recommend! Always delicious, fresh food, friendly staff, great drink selections, neat atmosphere, caring and hands-on owners.
First time experience was fantastic!! Very tasty food at a very fast rate!! The ribs are to die for!!! So tender and juicy!
Great food and service
Just went here for the first time and I gotta say I loved it!! Had the calamari for an appetizer which is delicious to start with! I was curious to try their bbq ribs at a seafood restaurant and they were the best ribs I've had in a long time, Very tender and packed with flavor More...
First time at this restaurant and was not disappointed. Food was top notch. Had the lobster roll and was impressed with the flavors. Nice quite atmosphere were you could enjoy a nice conversation with your party. Will definitely be returning again More...
Had apps and drinks. Friendly and quick service.
Came from Minneapolis for the mussels, left loving them. Simple, perfect. Wanted more broth, so good. (The chef was personal enough to deliver our mussels, very impressed. )The lobster roll stole our hearts. Wow. Tender, zero toughness. Perfect.The almond cake was light and the best way to close the meal.Will go out of our way to visit again.Thanks! More...
Incredible experience, the whole crew from the lady that welcomes you in to the owners. Speechless.
Lovely place. Amazing that such a high standard restaurant exists out in these little towns. Service is stellar. Every time we are there the chef personally comes as ask us how our meal was. Atmosphere is beautiful.
So very tasty! From appetizers through to dessert, all was excellent.
Delicious and wonderful to have fresh seafood nearby.
Great food & great service.
Exceptional service and the salmon was amazing!
Good food in an unexpected place. The baked cod was flavourful and fresh. The staff is a bit out of their depth but it's home and comfortable.
Excellent food and a friendly staff!
Awesome food and service
Great restaurant! One of my favorite places to eat. I have not had a meal I haven't liked. The kung pao calamari is the bomb!
Great ambiance for eating
Great service, friendly welcoming owners. All food was good the exceptional dish was the Seafood pot, awesome. Thanks for the experience
What a gem. Great Seafood and diversified menu with great specials. the owner stopped by the table say hi. It was a wonderful experience will definitely go again.
Fantastic fresh seafood
Simply a small town gem. Amazing.
Service great, food delicious!
This was New York dining in small town Minnesota. The menu has a gourmet selection and large portions. This is a seafood lover's delight.
the food was great and service was good. The rest room was very dirty. I was disappointed. My prime rib was small.
Great service great food
Unbelievably delicious! Great service, too!
Delish!! We have been there twice and both times have been equally amazed. Great food, perfect atmosphere, and fair pricing!!
This is an awesome restaurant in the small town of Cokato. It's open Thurs-Sat. It features seafood but has great steaks and barbqued ribs from a local butcher. Service is excellent
We had the Walleye and It was all I expected and then some!! Good local Favorite that never gets old! Mmmmm mmmmm! "I'm "Hooked!""
A well worth the drive experience.. Great place to enjoy dinner if your looking for a new place to try. The food and the service was excellent !
Samuel D. Wood
I've been here twice, as of the posting of this review. This is a very high class establishment. The food is excellent, & the owner is a wonderful individual. He cooks, and also comes out to personally greet you! I've never experienced a higher class of service, & I've eaten at some of Minnesota's top restaurants. (like $100.00 per plate level) I hope this establishment is here to stay. Being in a rural area, it's tough for restaurants to survive, and we desperately need the level of quality and class that Bait & Hook provides. More...
Very good food and service . High end prices but worth it for special occasions !
I had the smokehouse burger which was cooked to perfection. The seasoned fries were fantastic as well, and I heard zero complaints from others about the food. All was excellent. They were very accommodating for a seafood allergy in our party, and made sure not to cross contaminate. Service was excellent. One small complaint was the pop, which doesn't mix right in the machine, leading to a not so great taste. But other than that, everything else was splendid. Thank you bait and hook. More...
The food was great.The service was just as good. Can't wait to go back.
Oysters were great! As was the Kung Pow Calamari. We will be back!
Oh my goodness!! Food is amazing! I had the smokehouse burger and although it was DELICIOUS I could only eat half! I also got to taste the lobster roll-again, AMAZING and my 12 year old boy was more than satisfied/full! Bloody Mary was one one of the best I’ve ever had! Our server was very personalble and the chef came out to check on our satisfaction! Will definitely be back! More...
Always a great place to go...great food and service
Delicious fare, great service, nice atmosphere. Love a server with a sense of humor and there are a few here. Made us smile on our night out with friends. We will definitely be back!
A good restaurant in the lakes area.
This was our first time to try the Bait and Hook . We had heard very good things and we weren't disappointed. My salmon was fantastic ! Everyone in our Celebration of Birthdays , had great food and drinks. Thank you, and we will be back. More...
Sam and Brooke Vlogs
Great food and service!
Calamari is amazing!
Never had a bad meal here
We are so lucky to have this restaurant in Cokato. It's wonderful. Great owners. Wonderful foods. A special treat!
Everything from being greeted when you walk in the door; the service, the food, the atmosphere, the setting, makes you feel like it all was specially prepared for you. The staff are attentive. The food is top-notch. The atmosphere is welcoming and marine themed. They have quality seafood, various other innovative dishes, and even a fantastic burger on their menu. There is a fully stocked bar in the front. This is my favorite place to bring my wife. More...
World's best ribs
Love this place. Great food and first-class service!!
Always excellent food and service! Try their specials as they have something great every night!
Food is fabulous
Great good. Haven't eaten anything bad off of the menu. Staff has always been kind. the owners were great introducing themselves and giving us a little background of their business. It's nice not having to drive so far for a good meal. Plus now they are putting a patio outside. Not finished yet but it's looking very nice. More...
Wonderful atmosphere! Esquisite food and felt instantly welcomed. Highly suggest!!!
Excellent staff. It is like going to Fine Dining Restaurant in Downtown Minneapolis. Everything from the food to choice of beverages is amazing.
Great date night bites. Everything we had was amazing. Brussel sprouts-amazing. Walleye-amazing. Some raspberry cake with green frosting stuffs-amazing. So good. Will definitely be back.
Excellent food and service. A great place for any occasion!
Delicious and friendly environment
The best service and food.
We celebrated my moms 70th last night. The dinner was a amazing experience. The food was fantastic. The bartender and our waitress went above and beyond. We will be coming back soon!!
Amazing meal and incredible service.
Wonderful service and even better Food! Great atmosphere!!
Wow what a find. Not that many great places in central MN. Food out standing. Service perfect.
Excellent food, service & inviting atmosphere! Highly recommend the drive down to Cokato and trying it out!!
Enjoy this classy place.
Great Prime Rib!
Once again had a wonderful experience. Now check out their out door seating.
Good food and fun servers!
Delightful experience each time we've eaten there.
Excellent food. Chef Tim was awesome! Excellent service. We'll be back
Nice surprise in rural MN. Nice place, good food. Friendly staff. Must try this place, we will be back!
My wife and I have been fans of this place since their soft opening. We have yet to find fish tacos that come even close, and I'm not talking just in Minnesota. The prime rib and rib eye has restored confidence again in ordering a steak while out to eat. The owners and their staff are very attentive. Atmosphere is pleasant and welcoming, definitely one of my favorite places to eat! More...
Awesome staff, great overall place. Best food around.
Kumpao calimari is really good
Great fresh seafood!
Great place close to home! Casual atmosphere and above average food. Crab and artichoke dip on the starter menu is great! Walleye seasoning is just right and no massive breading to overtake the delicious fish . Prime rib done just as ordered. And they make a great cosmopolitan and martini. Wine list looked like a great variety. The owner/chef delivered the food directly to our table. Service was very good. We will most definitely be back! More...
Tasty food, courteous wait staff.
Good food and great prices! I had the fish and chips meal for 15 bucks. The portions were large and the food was great. We only drank water but were treated like royalty. If you go there get a side of slaw, it's amazing! The chocolate cake was magnificent! I will be going back! I was not drinking that night but the drink menu looked like a winner. There were many choices and flavors of craft beer and some good wines to pair with your dish. More...
Delicious food, great atmosphere, and awesome staff! Call for reservations or sit in the large bar area. Great specials every weekend and be sure to save room for dessert!
Everyone that works there in my experiences there are happy you are there and are ready too serve you
Danielle Vander Ploeg
Was hoping for a bit bigger selection of seafood options, but the food we had was very good. Great presentation/plating as well. The service was excellent and the cook even came out to check that our food was enjoyed as well. Very nice place! More...
Thursday night is prime rib night!!! Fantastic and perfectly to order!
Yes we were the Party of eight. You made our night out the best ! Every item we ordered was prepared perfectly. Hats off to the chef and all your staff .
My husband and I love this restaurant. The food is delicious and it's an upscale restaurant with reasonable prices. The owners are wonderful and they take great care of their customers. They check on each customer table to see how you are enjoying your meal. They listen to your suggestions I know this because they had changed their chocolate cake and it wasn't as good as the original chocolate cake. I mentioned that the frosting wasn't as good and when we came back the next week they had changed back to the original cake. I recommend this place to all my friends and coworkers. We'll be customers for life. More...
Excellent food and excellent service. The atmosphere is very peaceful and vibrant. I had the lobster Mac n cheese and I think I'm addicted. 10/10 would recommend, and will be returning often. More...
We had a great meal, and great service...thankful to have such a great place close to home!
Lov d it
Always excellent food and the wait staff are very friendly and professional.
Starter shrimp/crab cake/prawn dish... sensational! Walleye was just... WOW! Energy and enthusiasm of staff was phenomenal. Make the trip to Minnesota's best kept seafood secret. More...
Worth the drive!
Always good food
