Have been here previously and came back for more. The view of the harbor is great with the Nantucket ferries coming and going. Can’t beat sitting on the deck if there’s a table. Had the lobster salad. Willing to pay $28 but the serving size...More

The prices are naturally higher because you’re on the water. That’s annoying. The waitress was not incredibly attentive, and my husband’s fish sandwich was not good. The bread was so soggy and falling apart. The breading was coming right off of the fish. He finally...More

I had heard that the fried clams here were the best on the Cape, and I agree! Full bellys, not greasy, cooked just right. My only gripe was the cost -- close to $26 for the smallest portion. For me, that's a once-or-twice a year...More

Baxter's is an amazing spot to take in the sights of the harbor, watch the aquatic wildlife and enjoy some of the freshest and tastiest comfort seafood. The bar is lively and the main eating area has a festive, casual atmosphere.

We were in Wareham for only a couple of nights and were lucky to find this place for dinner. The clam chowder was wonderful, that and a skewer of shrimp filled me up (okay, I don't eat much). This place definitely has a friendly, quiet...More

After reading the positive comments about Baxter's we didn't expect to be disappointed in our order of fish. The fish was over cooked with the coating quite browned, not the light crispy coating we have come to appreciate at other places along the coast. The...More

The start of summer is always celebrated with our first trip to Baxter's. Our family favorites are the skewered scallop and shrimp plate, whole belly clam plate, and smelt platter. The coleslaw is a great side.

I was looking for fried clams and I wasn’t disappointed. Huge serving, enough for 2 depending on your appetite, but I could only eat half. French fries were good also. Beautiful view from the deck watching the boats coming and going. I hope to get...More

No - Baxster's NEVER take reservations! Although you may wait to place an order, there's almost always plenty of space on the cafeteria side. If there's a wait on the bar/sit down side (21+ at ALL times) it won't be too... More
