The service okay. Server not knowledgeable about wine. When asked vintage of wine she did not know and did not offer to find out - tasted like old vintage. Menu rather unimaginative. Shrimp special was BBQ Shrimp with potato salad and beans (tasted like Campbell's Pork and Beans). No "fresh" seafood. I know restaurant is advertised as a steakhouse, but... More

After reading some of the reviews on Trip Advisor, we almost decided to pass on Baxter's... so glad we didn't! "Hungry" for Burgers... we decided to give Baxter's a try. My husband and I both had burgers, served up any way you want them. Delish... Half pound of Angus Beef on a great bun! These were perfectly cooked yo our... More

This place was designated the best steakhouse on Amelia Island for 10 years in a row. That said, we were in the mood for seafood. We had the blackened shrimp and the seafood platter. No skimping on the portions here and very tasty, Oh... the caesar salad was to die for!!

So we decided to try Baxter's again... The 1st time we sat at the very crowded bar near the kitchen area and could smell the grease and smoke. Service at the bar was slow as the bartender catered to the older ladies... Thinking this must be the Island's senior hot spot. We left after paying for the drink. This time... More

The food was very good, the bread delicious and the wine choices were excellent. But the server was rude, time and time again. Ruined the experience for us.

My friends live near here and come here often. They have a nice selection which is not too overpriced for fernandina. Nice casual atmosphere.

This resturant did not show up on trip advisor so we were surprised to pass it on coastal hwy and it be so packed w cars. Steak was good. Husband ordered the grouper which we did not recognize as it was not the fleshy, thick cut of fish that is normally prepared. The bernaise sauce added to it. Fish just... More

We saw Baxter's when we were heading for a walk near the beach. We tried it the next night. We both ordered a burger. They were delicious. The skinny fries were good also. We enjoyed it so much that we went back two nights later and ordered the same thing. We went on a Tuesday and a Thursday about 6:00pm.... More

While visiting Amelia Island we literally stumbled upon this restaurant while on our way to another. Service was excellent and friendly, tables and bathrooms were very clean. Wine list had some excellent selections from over the globe. My husband had the Black Angus filet and I had the swordfish. Both were cooked to perfection. It has been too long since... More

Baxters is a very dependable neighborhood restaurant and has a faithful following due to good food at a fair value. The hamburgers are outstanding and fish is beautifully cooked. They even offer liver and onions, which some locals adore, on a certain night each week. While fish and steak will cost a pretty penny, one can also come in for... More
