We were looking around the Baxter area for walleye (sandwich or basket) on Tuesday afternoon. A lot of places closed because it's not yet the weekend. One hostess was ready to seat us, but they had no walleye on the menu. She was obviously unhappy...More

I seemed to remember last time I ate here it was fantastic. This time it was more or less just above average to so-so.

Baxter Bar & Grill is the bar/restaurant in The Lodge Hotel. The signage outside is confusing. Beautiful authentic looking log cabin exterior. The Up North decor continues in the bar/restaurant. This a Beautiful space! Seven craft beer voices including one local. Clean throughout.

Pleasantly surprised at the variety of taps, even some local brews. Ate in both bar and restaurant. Restaurant service was a little slow.

Great variety of menu items! The Calypso Salad I chose was delicious. Friends had fish tacos and crab cakes and said they were good as well. Prompt pleasant server and good drinks too!

Located in the Arrowhead lodge. Service was quick, efficient but FAR FROM FRIENDLY AND CARING. Had the small $13 pizza. OK, not to be ordered again, unless you think Pizza Hut is the standard for pizza. However, the Bloody Mary was fine.

We stayed at the Arrowwood that is attached and decided to give Baxters a try for the breakfast buffet. It wasn't bad priced but the food wasn't very good. Everything was cold and they weren't restocking it when it got low. I'm not going to...More
