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

We enjoyed a great meal last night at Baxter's. Our server Katie was very helpful and very attentive. We ordered the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer which was excellent. Three of us ordered filets and one us ordered the ribeye. All of our steaks were cooked exactly the way we ordered them. The salads were fresh, the gumbo was... More

Lived here for 15 years and this was our 1st time visit. Made reservations for 4. Seated promptly on arrival. A bit noisy. I ordered the hamburger, since I've heard about it for years. Spouse opted for a stir fry salmon special. Other gentleman ordered the liver and onion special and his wife ordered a steak. Small loaf of bread... More

We were just looking for a lite dinner and this restaurant had a bit of everything. The Chicken Rice soup was excellent and I had the shrimp Cesar salad. The shrimp was cooked to perfection and the dressing was really good. They had a wine I really liked by the glass. I ordered the carrot cake, which was just so... More
