Couple we were with said the same gal waited on them with a larger party 2 weeks ago and she had the same stale attitude. Sad. Won't be returning. Lots of other places to spend alot... More

While staying at the Omni Resort the concierge suggested Baxter's for a nice Friday night dinner for the 4 of us. Arrived at 6:15 and was seated right away. Ordered the brie appetizer and wine. Prime rib was the special. 5 mins later the waitress returned to say that they were out of the "special." Really? Wine came out in... More

Baxter's restaurant is the quintessential local restaurant with a great menu, large bar, and great staff. You will feel right at home in this wonderful setting, and their staff will treat you as a friend!

My wife and thoroughly enjoyed Baxters! Excellent food, service and atmosphere. I would recommend to anyone visiting Amelia Island. Baxters is very close to Amelia Island Plantation.

Went here with several golf friends for dinner, arrived later 8ish, most everyone had finished there meals they looked content. A friend new one of the waitresses, maybe that's why service was better or it could have been because no on was left. Seemed to have a well stocked bar which was quite crowded. I ordered the steak which was... More

Dinner took over 2 hours. Had to ask the manager to check on our dinner order after over an hour wait. Everything just took way to long. To top it off, the waitress never came by to collect our bill; we had to find the manager again. No apology, he said they were busy. Nothing special about the food -... More

Kudos to the staff at Baxter's! They made our experience especially nice after a long round of good golf and refreshing cocktails to follow. We had good conversation with the bartender and a delicious burger. We couldn't have asked for better!
