Baxter's was very sweet. When I made my reservation, I let them know it was my birthday. At dinner, they gave us a bottle of Champagne on the house and also a free piece butter cake . That was very thoughtful.
Food was good. Service was not impressive water glass empty for way to long. The music was too loud in the dinning area
I enjoyed the time spent there.

This was a really nice New YEAR’S dinner with some of my out of town girl friends that live in Chicago where there are so many great places to eat. Our experience was just as good at Baxter’s. We a had a really great waiter and the food was very good. The beet salad w salmon was fantastic. Great evening!
New Year’s Eve
We have typically had a wonderful experience at Baxter’s. We look forward to each visit with anticipation! Waiters and waitresses are always friendly and attentive.👍🏻
Always good quality food and service, great atmosphere.
We met some friends there for dinner and we let our waiter know right away that we were going to be there for a while. He was rolled with every request, and kept checking in with us but not enough to interrupt our conversation. The service was good but the food was great. The smothered chicken was soooo good, and the butter cake we shared for dessert was so rich and decadent I needed to be rolled to the car. I would definitely visit again.
Excellent service and the food was amazing! Already going back with the family!
Super evening at Baxters!
The food was pretty good and all of my party members enjoyed themselves but there were four different things wrong with just my dish. It was the Hawaiian burger. There were no jalapeños. I asked for extra sauce on the side and there wasn’t even sauce on the burger. I asked for medium rare and it was almost well done. And I ordered mashed potatoes as a side and got fries instead. I don’t know if it was the server or the kitchen but how do you mess up four things on a single plate? That being said the food tasted good so I might give it another shot.
Have taken the family to Baxter’s American Grill on Christmas Eve following Mass for the past four years. Service was outstanding as well as the food and drinks. Looking forward to continuing the tradition in 2019!!
Celebrated Christmas Eve
Good good as always, service sometimes a bit off, but we do enjoy going here whenever in town.
Everything was fine except the usually excellent New York Strip, which was fatty, gristly, and worst of all, flavorless.
I expect much better next time.
Baxter's is one of our local favorites for steak and prime rib. Food and service are consistently top-notch. Upscale but unpretentious atmosphere. The menu is a little pricey but reasonable for the quality.
Food was just so-so. Did not get the steaks right. They over cooked and it was going to be another 20-25 min. for a retry. Also waited way too long to bring the salads and couldn't enjoy them before bringing the main course. Drink refills we're non-existent. The waitress was definitely over-extended. The water glass person could have well filled in for getting drink refills.
Absolutely fantastic food and service ! Great atmosphere!
bourbon glazed bacon wrapped filet mignon with a wedge of salad. It was to die for. I will be back soon for another!!!!!
Most of the food was good, my steak wasn't a good cut and oscar style was a mistake. It's a nice enough place, but I wouldn't make a special trip. Service was fine, kitchen was a little slow.
Great food, service, and positive experience as always!! Our favorite go to place to eat!
Extremely disappointed. My friend and I made a reservation ahead of time, planning to have dinner together after work. We got there, still in our work uniforms and were greeted by a hostess who basically refused to smile and we instantly felt judged. However, after a long days work, we thought we'd just go with it. It took our waitress at least 5 minutes to actually get to us to give us our menus, then another 5 minutes to give us our drinks, then another 5 to get our order. It seemed like we were constantly waiting. We were seated far away from the rest of the guests, it felt like they secluded us on purpose. Every staff member that we came in contact with rarely smiled and looked at us like we were nothing to them. Horrible customer service skills all around. Then our food came. For the prices, I was expecting high class food. That was the exact opposite of what we received. The steak (which I ordered medium rare) was well done on the left side and medium rare on the right. It was extremely tough and hard to cut and even harder to chew. Overall extremely disappointed. Paid $53 for this meal when with the customer service and poor food quality, it should've been about $20.
Past experiences at this restaurant have been better than this one. We ordered our drinks, a shrimp appetizer, and our entrees of prime rib and rib-eye steak. The soup and salad were good, and we got our entrees promptly, but the appetizer never came. The waiter was apologetic when we told him, but that didn’t really make up for their error. My prime rib was very good. But my husband’s rib-eye was dry and tough. Looked more like sirloin. The baked potatoes were good. It was disappointing for a meal of $75 including tip.
I have Celiac disease and Baxter’s has a wonderful gluten free menu. The chef and staff are very accommodating and the food is great!
Quality fresh food that is well prepared. Excelkent selection of a variety of foods for lunch. Love the atmosphere - feels like slipping into a slow-down zone. I always feel special at Baxter's!
The wife and I went here just a night on the town (not from Bloomington/Normal) Very good food and a nice/clean place. We will definitely go back and would recommend it to anyone in the area.
When I made reservation with Open table for Champaign-it did it for Bloomington. Manager at Champaign told us we have a spot for you Great service!!!
Dinner was delicious and a very enjoyable evening was had by all.
Great! Food and service were perfect!
Waiter Evan was very attentive and provided great customer service, no wait time. Food was very good.
Service was a bit slow, but fine overall. Food was decent. We had fish and steaks. Plenty of food. Good side salad-mixed greens, some veggies and croutons.
We had the Italian beef sandwich and Hawaiian burger and they were very good. The service was exceptional. We had a great experience. Thank you.
Good food and great service they make sure you have what you want and need at the table it is expensive but with the price
Overall, a good experience. However, I ordered steak well done- it came with warm
Pink center, I would
Say is closer to
Rare. It was supposed to have a bourbon bacon glaze, but it was more like a thick
Sauce. We like Baxters and will return, but won’t order that again.
Amazing service and food. The quality of food prepared was delicious and I expected to pay alot more for it. The price was more than reasonable. I ordered the salmon with asparagus, it was delicious.
Great food and ambiance
Our food was prepared very well and we always enjoy our visits.
The food was absolutely delicious. Fast courteous service, nice atmosphere. We will be returning real soon.
Another great meal! Ribs, salmon and jambalaya were perfect.
Very lovely place for a romantic dinner
