Perfect!!! Awesome food. Great atmosphere. Wonderful service. The prime rib is to die for. Escargot was really delicious. I will most definitely be back again.

This friendly, family-oriented restaurant promotes steaks, but I find the hamburgers to be the best around. Great quality, trimmings, sides, and price. Warm, attentive service. Also, the bar is the closest thing to "Cheers" on Amelia.

Between the amazing service at the bar, the wonderful camaraderie with the other guests and the absolutely best steak we have had on the island - you can't go wrong at all. Mike at the bar is amazing and so fantastic! He's knowledgeable and can work and carry on conversations with more than one person - and he's hilarious! We... More

After reading the reviews we wanted to try Baxter's for a casual atmosphere and a good steak. Definitely casual... The locals seem to fill the bar fairly early, the service was good, but we've had better steaks. The key lime pie was very good.

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

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
