Not very good, I had the ribs that were not great and my husband had a steak. We have seen better steaks at the chain restaurants. The bill was high for the quality of the food also. Go somewhere else

We were vacationing in Fernandina Beach, Florida last weekend, and were not sure what we had a taste for. We had not been to Baxter's for quite a while, so we thought we should check it out. It had a pretty lively bar scene for "regulars" ( not us) The menu had choices from hamburgers to steaks, soups, salads, fish... More

First day in town and was looking for a good steak. The previous reviews looked good so we gave it a try. Party of 4, all ordered steaks. They were adequate, but not for the price. About the quality one would expect from a value steak at your local market. Service was also not great, with 2 orders not accurate... More

We chose this restaurant because we were staying at the Ritz and wanted somewhere nearby. It was OK but not a place we would go again. My husband described it as truckstop food. In their defense, the service was friendly and all the ingredients were clearly very fresh and high-quality. But the menu is pretty boring and the food wasn't... More

Love local places and this is one I'll return to! Sat at bar! Kay gave great wine and food recommendations! Everyone was friendly and it's a pleasant atmosphere and good conversation! We all had different entrees and all were delicious!

This is a great place for dinner when staying at AIP and you don't want to eat on-property or drive all the way into Fernandina Beach. The have a wide variety of food, all of which is very good. The service is also very good and it seems that many of the servers have been there many years; looks like... More

The service was bad. Bad. And I am easy to please. The food was on the same level. We only chose it because it was close to our hotel and it was getting late for dinner and we were starving. Definitely will not be back when we return to Amelia Island.

Our favorite thing to do is sit at the bar, have a few cocktails, and then enjoy dinner around the bar top. Great conversation. Great food. Easygoing atmosphere. Baxter's is a local favorite.

Service and food were both good. Price is high so be prepared to spend extra. The steaks we had were cook correctly and tasted good. The atmosphere was calm and made to feel like home. The bar had many selections. If a good steak dinner is your plan for the night check out this restaurant.

Place was recommended but not sure why. Thought to be a high-end spot but ended up being more like a Denny's under a fancy roof. Our server, although nice, did not seem to understand the menu well. She did not know they served sparkling water, brought out the wrong salad and did not seem very enthusiastic at all. We ordered... More
