Steak is what's for dinner!

Visiting AI for the first time and drove by this our first day in town as we are staying nearby. Your reviews certainly gave us pause since there is not agreement if the steak is good or bad. Decided to give it a try and we liked it a lot. It's not an upscale Ruth Chris experience nor a chain... read more

I was lured by a fabulous rating for the Philly Cheese Steak sandwich, but I have to say, I was disappointed. There weren't even any green peppers on it. The steak fries however were excellent!

Their sign reads "Best Steak on AI" and we wouldn't argue. Service was both friendly and professional. Steaks were delicious. Dinners included soup or salad and choice of two sides. Drinks were bargain-priced. Glad we went.

Great place with a neighborhood feel. Seems to be the " go -to" place for many of the island folks, among whom I dined. Can't beat the steaks!

We had dinner and drinks at Baxter's. Lots of great options. The baked brie, shrimp, and fresh veggies were fabulous! Everything was cooked very well. We sat at the bar and the service was excellent. Prices are reasonable.

Dined here to celebrate a birthday with another couple. Food was really good and cooked exactly as described on menu. None of us could say the meal wasnt good. Service was good and attentive- no problems there. However, the interior of the restaurant can use some serious updates. It is like stepping back in time to the early 80's. Another... More

I have loved all the meals I had here. I love their homemade soups too. The steaks are my favorite and the service is great too!

We were looking for some place close to the Amelia island plantation resort that had a good steak and we found this. All of our party enjoyed. I had a great steak and the atmosphere was good. Service was good as well.

Wide menu options and very generous portions for price. Had the grouper entree and it was cooked very well. Down home, comfort meal.

Nice atmosphere, but a little loud. Not recommended for a romantic dinner. We both had the fried seafood platters. Everything was really good until I got to the scallops. I had purposely saved them to last because I love Scallops unfortunately they were awful not bad but really awful.
