expensive mediocre food with good but somewhat slow service

We made reservations for our party of 10 and were seated right on time. The waitress was friendly, but the service was slow. The salad and appetizers (calamari) were good. The bread was warm and delicious. The entrees, however, were another story. The seafood linguini ($29.00) was full of a... read more

My husband and I were going on a horseback riding experience right down the road and arrived very early. Passing this place we turned around to kill and hour. He ordered a cheese burger and I ordered the philly cheese steak. This is the best philly cheese steak I have EVER eaten. I even had philly cheese steaks in Philadelphia... More

Not your every day dinner experience, as Baxter 's main dining room offers full service meals. Fine wines, top shelf whisky, and cognacs are offered along with fresh soups, appetizers, and meat and fish dishes. Several beef entrees were enjoyed in our party. I enjoyed the Seafood combo grilled and found the Grouper to be most excellent. The only negative... More

A friend and I just dropped in and were greeted with friendly smiles and were promptly seated near a TV with sports on it. Perfect! Our server, Susan, was very attentive and extremely helpful. My friend said his steak was outstanding and my burger was cooked to perfection and juicy. The owner even stopped by to introduce himself and the... More

Went to Baxter's after swimming and just wanted a glass of wine and share an appetizer. They had mussels that day which were the best I have ever tasted. 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
