We ordered the eight ounce ribeye sandwich without the roll and still couldn't finish it all. It was cooked to perfection I see why Baxter's was full of locals.

They were open late (we had dinner at 10pm) and the food was good. They are famous for steak which I had and was good. The 2 dollar signs are somewhat misleading as steak is north of $30 per entree. I had a $14 steak sandwich that was just the right size and delicious.

Generally locals eat on Monday nights at Baxter's and it is like Cheers. Good friends, neighbors, and tourists enjoying good food and good service. Highly recommend, but save me a seat.

Go to Baxters for a burger. They're very good. A decent beer selection. Its also one of the few eateries open on Sunday at the south end of the Island.

While a popular restaurant with its regulars clearly, the restaurant in some ways is a throwback. The service sometimes, while often friendly, labors to maintain a sense of what the establishment presumes to be.in Its claims about its food, in particular its steak,the boasts far exceeding the quality of the fare. Its food in general is unseasoned and undistinguished. A... More

Baxter's advertises "the best steak in Fernandina Beach" and that was the pitch that lured me in. However, the meal was mediocre at best. I was disappointed in the salad, potatoes, and service. I won't be back.

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

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 very heavy cream sauce and mostly noodles. The shrimp was... 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
