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 have eaten steaks all over the country and my filet and his NY Strip were the very BEST!! Even my house salad w Bleu cheese dressing was outstanding. Their escargot s
and their smoked salmon apps are also delicious.
Service was outstanding. Food was exceptional and atmosphere was delightful.

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 very attentive, and actually knows what some of the patrons want as they sit down.

So far, we have had, escargot (twice), baked brie, french onion soup & Caesar salad, but will try one of their steaks soon. The escargot (which is a rare item on a menu), were wonderful and served with this incredible bread, as was the brie. I could eat the bread by itself.

We enjoy sitting at the bar, and Baxter's is a good one to sit at. The restaurant itself is quite cozy and offers a pleasant dining experience.

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.
