We had great service and the food was very good. Everyone was following the social distancing guidelines but everything went smoothly. Very good overall experience. We will continue to go to Baxter’s.

It was a very nice overall experience. It was only about half full due to bad weather and the virus scare. Our waiters were excellent .

Food was very good. Service was just OK. For the prices they charge, though service could have been more prompt.

5 Star as usual. Our Server Tark, took exceptional care of us. The food is always outstanding. The ambiance is wonderful, and holding a conversation is easy, as the noise level is low. What an amazing place

In the past we have had EXCELLENT service and great food. This past event not so. Started with being seated in a booth that stared at the bathroom doors, just what you want fora special date night.(My wife has just completed her cancer treatment from the last 10 months). We saw our server when we ordered our food and then not again until she came with the bill after we were done with our food. I ordered a beet salad and fillet mignon. What I received was French onion soup(sent it back for beet salad) and a top sirloin steak. My wife saw my steak and said "That's not what you ordered." Having not seen our server for the entire meal I just ate it and made sure the bill was correct, which it was. Bottom line is that I expect more from Baxter's. It is a top notch restaurant and therefore it should not allow its service to slip. It will be a while before we dine here again.

Potential was there for a better review. Appetizer had ingredient not listed on menu that I’m allergic to and had to send back. Still was charged for it. Maybe should have eaten and fallen out!
Filet was medium well (at least) and ordered medium rare. Still pretty tasty just over done. Everything else was good.
Waiter did a good job of leaving us alone.

Steak was ordered medium-well, it came out rare. It was sent back, and what came back to the table was inedible, it was so burnt. The waiter came across as a frat boy who didn't care. A very disappointing trip.

We have been to Baxter's several times before, and never have been disappointed with the quality of the food or the service. The dining experience has always been fantastic, and I would not hesitate to recommend Baxter's to anyone looking for a wonderful night out and a great dinner!

Over all visit was fine. Due to being Valentine's day we were placed in an extra room and the setting sun was in my eyes for half of the meal. There were no shades or blinds to close on that large West facing window. Next time we will refuse their choice of seating.

My husband and I went to Baxter’s as an early Valentine’s Day dinner. Vanessa was our waitress and she was absolutely wonderful. She was super informed on the popular dishes, providing recommendations for both food and drinks, and very friendly and personable. Pricing was great compared to what we’re used to in the city (Chicago), and the ambiance is very nice for a romantic date.

I went there and met a wonderful girl for our first date. It was a great experience for both of us. Got a lot of talking in. And actually it lasted a little over two hours. Nobody said a word. Great place!

Have eaten at Baxter’s many times. The last couple of times the food has been not quite up for the standard we expect. The baked potatoes were Luke warm at best.

This was the perfect place for our business lunch today. Our server was attentive while respectful of our privacy. I tend to ask for modifications due to dietary restrictions, which were received graciously. Our food came out hot and fresh in a timely fashion. The steak tacos were excellent. We came in with a fairly tight schedule and had plenty of time to enjoy our meal and talk. Exceptional food, service and atmosphere. We plan to make it a regular meeting place.

Overall our e experience was good. However our waiter was so-so never asking how our meal/food was. We ordered the mushroom appetizer and there was one mushroom the size of a 1/2 dollar & all the rest were very small button mushrooms....not what we expected.

The restaurant had a pleasing atmosphere and good service. The food however, was very bland. The Filet Mignon I ordered while cooked perfectly, tasted as if there was not a single seasoning on it at all.
