After living on Amelia Island for 5 years, last night was my first visit to Baxter's. It is a great place for steaks! While the atmosphere and decor are "plain Jane", the food is very good. At our table of 4 we shared two appetizers: conch fritters and calamari. The conch fritters were very good, the calamari was excellent (tender,... More

While celebrating our anniversary we enjoyed dinner at Baxter's. The wait staff was friendly and the service impeccable. Dress is causal but the food is top shelf. I have had lobster up and down the east coast and this was the best! I tried the fried and broiled lobster. My wife had the surf and turf. She loved the steak... More

Very average food. From the time we entered into this restaurant you could tell the owner/manager wanted to make sure the experience was positive. Our waitress was the same way so this made up for the average food. My husbands steak was over cooked and not even hot upon delivery. The potato was cold for two out of the 4... More

My bride of 49 years and I visited Baxter's Bar and Grill near Fernandina Beach, FL, last night to celebrate our anniversary. We did so with our fingers crossed after reviewing some of the write-ups. I am happy to report that both the service and food were in the 4 1/2 star range. Our server, Shannon, was most pleasant and... More

Went to dinner with friends and sat at bar, which was totally jammed with people. Ordered steak dinner and was brought steak sandwich. Sent back to kitchen for re-work. In the meantime my friends had to start eating. By the time I got my food, they were finished and I got to eat alone. As a reward for this, we... More

I lived on Amelia Island back in the mid-90's and Baxter's was around then. It's still there and so is the same bartender Mike. He did a good job then and still takes care of his bar guests. Reasonably priced food and drinks, but the preparation lacks a little something. Stopped in one night for a burger at the bar.... More

Baxters has always has the best, best skinny French Fries I have ever had. When I asked Michele the owner why he said it is because they change their frying oil weekly and believe me you can tell it. Their fried shrimp are great. They have excellent burgers which is the best value on their menu. They are advertised as... More
