Good food at reasonable prices

Nice varied menu with different price points for all budgets. Our waitress, Morgan, was extremely helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend for couples as well as families.

My husband and I shared them and we received a small loaf if hot bread and room temp butter. We ate at the bar and the bartender was attentive and very... More

The food is always great here, but the service was as bad as it could get anywhere. Our waitress was very un-attentive and seemed uninterested in helping her customers

Baxters is good for different moods and occasions...locals sit at the bar (Cheers??), you can grab a burger at a reasonable price and sit in a booth, but you can also bring out of town guests,and order a nice steak and wine selection. One of the few restaurant offerings on the south end of the island that is not affiliated... More

The bread is freshly baked and delicious. Our caesar salad was very fresh. The entrees were pricey so we shared one. The steak medallions were a little tough but that could be due to ordering medium-well. The waitress could not give us any direction on how to order that meal so she suggested going higher rather than lower.
