Although this restaurant is now called Baxter's, not J. Buck's, I wanted to share a review. My husband and I, along with our daughter and her boyfriend, went to dinner at Baxter's this past Saturday. What an absolutely great place! The atmosphere is so relaxing and the seating extremely comfortable. And the menu offers wonderful variety. We all ordered something different; and, each of us loved what we ordered....including the soup and salads. If there was just one thing that was a bit disappointing, it was dessert. We ordered the gooey cake with chocolate malt ice cream for all of us to share. It was okay but nothing great. Despite that, I would definitely recommend Baxter's to anyone in or visiting the Bloomington, IL area.

From the modern and upscale decor to the fabulous food choices and presentation, this place is one of the best "fine dining" experiences in Bloomington-Normal. We often forget about it because it's not on the "main" roads, but more towards the airport. However, when we go, we are never disappointed and truly have enjoyed every meal there. The ambiance is great! I've been for business lunches, date nights with the hubby, and even in the private banquet room for wedding rehearsal dinners.

With the name change to Baxter's, this restaurant has put it's act together. When it opened, the food was just okay and the service slow. Now, the food was great with very pleasant and timely service. As a result, the crowds have really picked up, and on weekends, there can be a wait for a table without rez. It is located next to the Holiday Inn/Suites at the east terminal access drive for the Central Illinois Regional Airport, Bloomington.
