If you enjoy sitting at the bar, be there by 5:00. We just happened to be there at 5:00, and people were waiting to go in, just to sit at the bar. It' very interesting, the bar sits approximately 24 & all the seats were full before the restaurant started to fill up. It's quite enjoyable. Bar tender, Mike, is... More

Visited Baxter's at the last minute and was pleasantly surprised. Large menu of choices, got seated right away, good service and the food was excellent. Good for both steak and fish. I would definitely recommend if you are on the island.

If you want the best seat in the house at Baxter's, you'd better be ready to run in the front door when the restaurant/bar opens at 5pm! People are waiting in their cars to get to the roomy bar first for a seat! It is a good place to be, if you want an adult beverage before, during and/or after... More

This is one of my favorite places to go for steak. My husband loves the Salmon and my mother loves the veal. they have great children's dishes as well. all the cool locals hang out at the bar. Michelle the owner is so warm--he always remembers everyone by name and makes you feel so welcome!!!

My husband and I were there on a Friday night. We got seated right away and our server was attentive. It look longer than normal to get our food. When the food came our steaks were perfectly done. But mine completely lacked any flavor! There were no seasoning! Very bland and boring. My husband enjoyed his steak because it came... More

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
