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.

My biggest complaint is that Baxters perhaps needs another bar. The walking space in their bar area is crowded and its hard to get a drink. Their dance floor for weekends is a big enough space but it is under-utilized. Last couple of times I've been in - it wasn't used for dancing and it wasn't used for seating which... More

We just went for happy hour/dinner and were pleasantly surprised. We had no idea about happy hour with $3 well drinks, wine and even cheaper beer. Since all the appetizers were 1/2 until 7:00 I think I made a meal of those. My fiancé had fish tacos which were some of the best we've ever eaten. Location is convenient to... More

Service was great and the food was good. Not sure I would "seak them out", but it was fine in a pinch.

I was working at the court house and the judge only gave us an hour for lunch. Baxters was next door and had a great beer selection. My best lunch was the fish tacos. The flounder sandwich was a bit overcooked for me, but still tasted good with the chili chutney that they serve with it. Be sure to try... More

Stopped by for lunch and the food was good. Their fried calamari is delish. Cool spot to hang out with at night on the weekend with friends for some drinks, pool, and fun. I dont really care too much to go in there to watch any games, but they have tvs everywhere...the layout is good and the servers and bartenders... More
