From the outside it just looks like most beach local restaurants. And it is. But the inside is nicely appointed and the booths comfortable. My husband had a rib eye and I had the filet. The French Onion soup was yummy. The steaks melted in our mouths and the steamed vegetables were perfect. Relaxing and apparently a local favorite for... More

Baxter's calls itself a "friendly neighborhood bar" except that the guy behind the bar and the owner aren't very friendly. I guess if you're a regular maybe things are different, but that shouldn't matter. The problem is there is one guy behind the bar whose job it is to serve everyone at the bar both food and beverage, plus fill... More

My wife and I recently had dinner in Baxter's on Amelia Island, FL. We've eaten there several times over the last 5 years and always had a good experience. Unfortunately, our latest visit was a disappointment and may keep us from going back. The initial service was slower than usual, which I could accept, but the food was just not... More

Ate here last week while on vacation at the Omni. I ordered the steak au poivre and it was so succulent and tasty! Great food and value.

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
