The wait staff was very helpful and the food was terrific. It seemed like there was construction work going on behind the restaurant so we had to speak loudly for a little while. That, of course is not the restaurant's fault. The weather was beautiful, and when the sun began to set, and the temperature began to drop, they lit the fire pit and lit the heaters.

We love to go to Baxter’s for birthdays and anniversaries. The food is always top notch and our fillets didn’t disappoint us. They were cooked just as we ordered them, and the baked potatoes were just as delicious as the steaks. The atmosphere was pleasant and the service was excellent. This is one of our favorite places to dine!

By far and away the worst steak that I have ever been served at any level of restaurant. Horribly undercooked, and mostly fat. Nice enough place, and good service. Fantastic salad! Just a terrible piece of meat.

Wonderful meal and evening! We were seated immediately on arrival. Great variety in menu offerings. Our server was helpful, courteous and efficient, attentive but not overbearing. We enjoy Baxter's steaks, and they did not disappoint! Saved room for dessert - Raspberry White Chocolate Bread Pudding - and it was outstanding! This is one of our favorite restaurants here.

First the food was wonderful. I had the prime rib sliders and my husband had the pretzel burger. We loved it. Where we had issue was the seating. While I get that with covid parking lot dinning is normal, they had us in the parking lot with no heat while the patio (with the patio heaters and fire pit) were virtually empty. We arrived at 8:30 (closing was at 10:00) and we had a hard time tearing our waitress away from closing.

Our party of four enjoyed a wonderful meal at Baxters. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I believe our server's name was Josh and he took great care of us. There was a slight mix up where two of us received a different side dish than ordered; Josh promptly brought us the right side dish to correct the situation. We were also so pleased to order a DeLoach pinot from the extensive wine list. The atmosphere was very pleasant with the lovely decor and background music selection. We will definitely be recommending Baxter's and look forward to a return visit. Thank you!

Had another great meal of pretzel bites and steak nachos, beer, and wine! The steak nachos were half price since it was Wednesday. We had the apple cobbler for desert and it was delicious as well!!!

We had dinner for my birthday at Baxter's recently, and it was great! We both had the Parmesan Crusted Halibut, and it was so good. Great flavor, and a good sized portion. We'll definitely go back again soon. Highly recommend!

Our waiter was great and the food was excellent. The hostess was not kind. Maybe she was having a bad day. I made reservations for a table outdoors at 5:00. When we got there most of the tables outside were empty. I asked to be seated at a table with short padded chairs. (My wife is 4'8" and the last time we ate outside there the chairs were digging into our guests legs so bad we asked to be moved.) The hostess told us that seating for guests is arranged at the beginning of the evening. She said that a table with short padded chairs was not available. I insisted since there were several tables with them empty. After a few minutes at the computer she grabbed a couple menus and stormed off toward the back door. I asked the other hostesses if we were supposed to follow her. They did not respond. My wife and I decided to follow the hostess. When she seated us she told us the next time we make reservations to request the short padded chairs in our reservation.

It's a pattern! Every dining event (there have been several) at Baxter's is a joy. This applies to indoor, outdoor, or patio seating. Covid19 safety guidelines are being met. Good job.

The experience was pretty good, but I have a couple of comments. There were a mess of gnats outside and they tended to get into everything, but the flavor of the food was great - the Drunken Mushrooms and our salads. We had Ribeyes and they were tough overall, which I didn't expect from a highly regarded steak place, but we took them home and had them later and they were fine and tasty - just could have done with less gristle!

We were greeted courteously and led immediately to our table. Within moments, Jo, our server appeared and greeted us and took our drink orders. Throughout our meal, Jo was attentive and courteous. The food was delicious and cooked perfectly. My wife and I were celebrating having our two youngest kids home with us before they leave to go back to school. Our experience at Baxter’s helped make it a wonderful evening!
