Baxter's is a pleasant surprise. If you are looking for gourmet dining with fine china and linen table cloths then by all means go to the Ritz. If you are looking for above average pub food with great atmosphere and friendly service then Baxter's is the place to go. Everyone in our party of five had a different entree and... More

The bar is definitely a hangout for the older local crowd. There wasn't a single seat available and it looked like everyone was enjoying themselves. The restaurant itself was a little on the empty side for a Friday night. Our food was good. The steaks were cooked as ordered and our waitress was attentive. I'm not at all impressed with... More

Wife and I stopped in on a recommendation that the food was very good. We sat at the bar to eat as most times that is what we like to do, more interaction with folks. They have a large sign by the road saying best steaks on the island so we came in to try one. The grass needed to... More

Service is slow and awful . The restaurant was at half capacity ... Spilled waitress spilled beverages all over our feet ... The grounds are overgrown ..and the steaks have no flavor, just meat.. Even Angus certified beef needs seasoning ... Order a prime rib medium rare... Tough as shoe leather ... We don't mind spending money for good food...... More

We ate at Baxter's after trying many other restaurants on the island and it was by far the best! The sign outside says they have the best steak on the island and they're not overstating themselves. My very particular kids said that their burgers were outstanding and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his crab cakes. My oldest ordered a steak and... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant for our anniversary dinner. She had visited this restaurant in the past with her sisters. She informed me the restaurant is known for their delicious steaks. However, the grouper looked good so, I thought I would try it. The grouper was excellent and my wife's fillet was also cooked perfectly and was equally... More

We ate at Baxter 2 years ago and the steaks were very good, as well as the service the reason why we returned this year. Obviously they changed their cook. The steak were too done, the presentation was poor. The salad was fresh but the dressing straight from a bottle.... The wine selection was limited but good. During dinner we... More
