So-so

Food ok. Service horrendous. We waited in the bar for 10 minutes just to get our order taken and another 15 to get the order. Service in the dining room was verrrrry slow.

You can go here for a great glass of wine - only $6.00 for a large pour of good house wine. Hamburgers and Philly cheese steak sandwich great. Delicious menu. Great service. Have fun!!

We decided to try Baxter's for our dinner for our wedding anniversary while on a weekend away on Amelia Island. Following on from information my husband found on the internet, we called ahead to make a reservation on that day. They do not open until 5, so left a message for a reservation as directed. We were called back after... More

Recommended for steaks...but tried other menu items. It was a treat. Susan, our server led us though choices of local seafood and the results were wonderful. The kitchen did a great job. Really exceeded our expectations. We will be back and will try the steaks.

I love Baxter's and I always enjoy my meal! Get there by 5 or 530 to get a seat at the bar and meet some locals. When we dine there I always reserve table #2 in the bar. The waitresses are great and it's just always laid back and fun. I never miss a trip to Baxter's while I am... More

We asked our van driver where he would go to enjoy a steak and he recommended Baxters, as did the gentleman at the store so we figured we would try it. We had dinner there on a Sunday night, the bar was full and there were only a couple of open booths available but the food and service was very... More

I had dinner here last night & the meals were exceptional for 4 of us. . Both were exceptional. I had the crab cake appetizer & fried shrimp for dinner. Both were exceptional. The service was exceptional and we could not be more pleased.

This doesn't look that great from the outside but the food was wonderful. Staff was very helpful and very attentive, only a couple miles away from the resort.

After living on Amelia Island for 5 years, last night was my first visit to Baxter's. It is a great place for steaks! While the atmosphere and decor are "plain Jane", the food is very good. At our table of 4 we shared two appetizers: conch fritters and calamari. The conch fritters were very good, the calamari was excellent (tender,... More

While celebrating our anniversary we enjoyed dinner at Baxter's. The wait staff was friendly and the service impeccable. Dress is causal but the food is top shelf. I have had lobster up and down the east coast and this was the best! I tried the fried and broiled lobster. My wife had the surf and turf. She loved the steak... More
