Baxter's restaurant is the quintessential local restaurant with a great menu, large bar, and great staff. You will feel right at home in this wonderful setting, and their staff will treat you as a friend!

My wife and thoroughly enjoyed Baxters! Excellent food, service and atmosphere. I would recommend to anyone visiting Amelia Island. Baxters is very close to Amelia Island Plantation.

Went here with several golf friends for dinner, arrived later 8ish, most everyone had finished there meals they looked content. A friend new one of the waitresses, maybe that's why service was better or it could have been because no on was left. Seemed to have a well stocked bar which was quite crowded. I ordered the steak which was... More

Went and sat at bar and had a good time and good food. Mike the bartender did a great job and he said I should try the salmon and it was very good Met some new people and had a good time. I always like sitting at the bar and eating and meeting new people.

Dinner took over 2 hours. Had to ask the manager to check on our dinner order after over an hour wait. Everything just took way to long. To top it off, the waitress never came by to collect our bill; we had to find the manager again. No apology, he said they were busy. Nothing special about the food -... More

Kudos to the staff at Baxter's! They made our experience especially nice after a long round of good golf and refreshing cocktails to follow. We had good conversation with the bartender and a delicious burger. We couldn't have asked for better!

Food ok. Service horrendous. We waited in the bar for 10 minutes just to get our order taken and another 15 to get the order. Service in the dining room was verrrrry slow.

You can go here for a great glass of wine - only $6.00 for a large pour of good house wine. Hamburgers and Philly cheese steak sandwich great. Delicious menu. Great service. Have fun!!

We decided to try Baxter's for our dinner for our wedding anniversary while on a weekend away on Amelia Island. Following on from information my husband found on the internet, we called ahead to make a reservation on that day. They do not open until 5, so left a message for a reservation as directed. We were called back after... More
