Went here for dinner and a beer and it was the perfect dinner. The burger was amazing and the sweet potato fries were great. The service wasn't the best but definitely worth checking out.

Loved the bartenders, and they are great with names, that's big in my book. The bar snacks are solid, they carry every game and you cannot beat the happy hour

This place is supposed to be a sports bar but I went during the NBA playoffs and they had the nerve to have the game turned down to zero and some type trivia contest going on basically doing the whole first quarter of the game. I'm like really, what SPORTS bar does that? The food was very subpar I've eaten... More

While searching for sports bars near the Norfolk Naval base, I came across Baxter's. I visited on a Monday evening with baseball games in progress and hockey playoffs going on. It was surprisingly not very busy. There's plenty of TV's in the bar area and around the restaurant, so you can find a local sports program to watch. The food... More

If you go there, be careful going to the window booths--there is a step up that's hard to see and the staff doesn't point it out; a member of our family tripped over it and we saw 3 other people fall there, one very hard right at our booth. When you get there the food is slow and so-so--not really... More

Went with three other people. All dressed nicely to go bar hopping on a Saturday night. Stayed at a hotel near the bar and the receptionist recommended Baxters. Walked up to the front and the guy at the front door said we were not allowed in, because someone is our group was wearing boots with jeans and a plaid button... More

I went to Baxters with my brother. I had the crabcake sandwich and the cajan crab dip which was just ok, the items were bland and really did not have that much taste to it. The first bartender we had did not even crack a smile but the second bartender we had was very attentive and friendly! The atmosphere was... More

Baxters was right by my hotel so I walked there to watch Monday Night football and get something to eat. Sat at the bar and the bartender introduced herself and asked my name. She called me by my name the rest of the night which was a nice touch. Ordered the chili nachos which were pretty good. The meatball sandwich... More

The waitress we had was unfriendly. She was acting like we where bothering her. The one bouncer at the door was acting cocky like he could whoop my behind. Food was ok but we didn't feel the love.
