I do like the wings here and they do throw a good party. Good music with nice djs are a staple in this spot. In the summer, this is one of the places to stop when you bar hop. What I like most about Baxters is their private party room upstairs. Its for rent. It is a very nice place... More

Management allows patrons with unruly kids to play around the bar and be a nuisance to others. The moment their child gets hurt, they'd blame the restaurant. When patrons who deal with it for 2 hours (after asking their waitress to ask if they could settle and nothing is done) we decided to speak up only for the guests (7... More

Went on Thursday and the trivia was a fun time. They had a deal going for $5 flat bread and it was very good. Lots of TVs with sports and the staff was awesome. We placed 3rd in trivia but Baxter's placed 1st on my go to places for future sports game if I'm downtown.

I'm in town for the MEAC tournament and I dined here and had a few drinks. Happy hour was popping with all drafts just $3. There's an excellent variety of food and tap beers here. Great food pre-game

Loved the bartenders, and they are great with names, that's big in my book. The bar snacks are solid, they carry every game and you cannot beat the happy hour

This place is supposed to be a sports bar but I went during the NBA playoffs and they had the nerve to have the game turned down to zero and some type trivia contest going on basically doing the whole first quarter of the game. I'm like really, what SPORTS bar does that? The food was very subpar I've eaten... More

Went here for dinner and a beer and it was the perfect dinner. The burger was amazing and the sweet potato fries were great. The service wasn't the best but definitely worth checking out.

While searching for sports bars near the Norfolk Naval base, I came across Baxter's. I visited on a Monday evening with baseball games in progress and hockey playoffs going on. It was surprisingly not very busy. There's plenty of TV's in the bar area and around the restaurant, so you can find a local sports program to watch. The food... More
