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

Ate on a Saturday night about 7:00 and the restaurant was not very busy - perhaps word it out? Good service - for the first time I can remember, a server recommended the least expensive glass of wine of its type and it was good! Chicken corn soup was good, though heavy. Others in our party enjoyed their fried green... More

Visited Baxter's expecting outstanding experience. It was average and not what we anticipated; although, the other couple with us thought the steak was excellent and deserving of the 5 awards the restaurant has won their steak.

In May of 2014 we visited Baxter's because they advertise to have "The best steaks around". My visit there fell short of my expectations. The location is nice & service was prompt and friendly however the food was less than good. We had the steak dinner and later wished we had stopped with just an appetizer. The steak was not... More

I went to Baxter's looking for a great shrimp cock tail. The shrimp was over cooked. My steak reminded me of a ten dollar steak from a fast food restaurant. While the service and atmosphere were adequate, the overall experience was unimpressive. Baxter"s Restaurant did not live up to my expectations. I live on Amelia Island and I will not... More

Just got to Amelia Island and wanted dinner, so we drove around and found Baxters. The menu had seafood, steaks and a variety of other foods. Service was good, our waitress was excellent and we enjoyed her service. Steaks, fish sandwich and lamb chops were ordered and were excellent. I enjoy my steak well done, but was served with pink...
