Friends took us to Baxter's for lunch. It is a typical cheerful Cape Cod joint on theater. The food was tasty and the place was comfortable and was refreshing as there was a nice breeze blowing in off the water.

Friends told us that Baxter's was a must when in Hyannis - sometimes you shouldn't listen to recommendations. The restaurant is quite unusual in that it does not allow anyone in under 21!!!! Don't try and take your kids here they won't get in. Baxter's...More
