This was our first time dining at Baxter's and it definitely lived up to our expectations! Good food at great prices. It had a nice wine and drink menu as well. I also received a free dessert for my birthday. We will recommend to our friends and we WILL be back!
The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. The place was packed but the food service didn't suffer at all. We got our food much quicker than expected. Would definitely go back.
Food was good but over priced. Acoustics were horrible. Could not even carry on a conversation at a table for 6. Also music was too loud especially with all the loud conversations.
This place was very good. The food was amazing, we will for sure go back. It was our anniversary so we decided to try it out for the very 1st time. The wait staff was super friendly also. If you want a Bush Light they don't carry it. Which surprised me. LOL Overall we were very pleased with Baxters and would recommend it to anyone.
Food was awesome as always. We always ask for Kyle to be our server - he is very attentive and personable. We love Baxter’s!!
We have enjoyed Baxters in previous visits . This time we were seated by the kitchen . It was loud . The chefs were yelling back and forth which is typical but, you are not a diner . your kitchen should be seperate from the dining room. We would've asked for another table but you were packed. Our food was good but overcooked. My pork chop should've been served with brussel sprouts and it wasn't. The waitress came back after wep laced our order because she didn't know it came with a potato. This is our first bad experience but, for $235.00 it shoud've been much better.
Great place. Very active. Bar was full the entire night. Prices were no different than an upscale prices. Server kept approaching the table giving us the feeling of being rushed. Restaurant was not full and our reservation was at 6:30 so I am not sure the push to move us along so quickly. But the vibe and quality/choice of food is definitely making this a favorite.
We had great service
Meh... food and service just okay. Pricey for what we got.
Great menu with awesome cocktails. Service was excellent!
Our waiter was very attentive and the food was phenomenal! Love the overall ambience and feel of the restaurant. Will definitely be back for date nights in the future.
Went here on a double date and really enjoyed the atmosphere, the food was fantastic and the waitress was top notch!
The steaks were cooked perfectly....as always. Always a great experience at baxters!
A label was found in my food but our server and the manager was great at reacting to the incident.
I'm sorry to say this was a bad experience. We go to Baxters at least once a month and Valentine's Day was not their best effort. The appetizer was skimpy, the seafood special was over priced and the pork chop was dry. The cheesecake was tasteless. We asked for bread and our waitress never brought it and my seafood bouillabaisse was presented with a fork to eat it. It's hard to eat a broth based meal with a fork. It will be hard to go back again. I hope this was an aberration.
My wife and I celebrated Valentines Day by going to Baxter’s. We have been there several times and have always had a good experience. Our meal last night was no exception. First of all, our waiter Francisco provided excellent service. He was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. He made recommendations that were spot on and answered any questions we had about the menu. The food itself was outstanding. I had the Parmesan Top Sirloin, which was excellent and my wife had the NY Strip, which she said was also very good. We also had the bread pudding and the truffle cake which were awesome! The whole experience at Baxter’s was well worth the money spent. I highly recommend giving them a try if you’ve never been there.
Wonderful all around!
The food was fantastic. Everything was organic with delicious ingredients. Would strongly recommend the smothered chicken. Was a great restaurant for a Valentine's day dinner.
Nice atmosphere; good food; highly recommend the ribeye
Although I don’t live in BN I have visited often for both business and pleasure. One of the restaurants I’ve liked for some time now is Baxter’s. The restaurant is open, friendly, has a very nice menu and the food is excellent.
The beef Wellington was cooked perfectly, and the service staff worked really well as a team. We are grateful Baxter’s is in Bloomington as there aren’t many restaurants that provide this level of service with a high caliber of delicious options to eat in Bloomington. We’ll be back for sure.
Enjoyable, relaxing and delicious
We had a wonderful time and cannot wait to return. Our server, Brandon, was attentive and did a great job. He handled the issue of having one shaker to make martinis well and made sure to check on us throughout the evening. The food, once again, was spot on! The lamb chops, the swordfish, the salmon, and the jambalaya were excellent. The prime rib sliders and the calamari were delicious also. Loved every bite.
The evening we went to Baxter's they had a broken water main. instead of closing they were making do with the situation. Our server was very annoyed about the entire situation. She told us we might be limited in drank refills. We requested coffee with desert but was tole they couldn't make coffee. The food was still good but not a really great experience.this time.
Always a very nice evening at Baxters. I recommend it highly.
Had appetizer, entree, and dessert all were excellent!
Off night for Baxter’s. Went out for Friday night Prime Rib; both my wife and I made that selection. Good service; good start with drinks and Baxter’s salad.
Prime Rib showed; zero flavor, very fatty cuts (one large, one small) and slightly undercooked. Just not the typical meat quality we expect.
To top it- my wife ordered a second martini special; only to be told a few minutes later that the bar had run out of Grey Goose. At 6:30pm on a Friday night. Really??
We’ll be back, hope to just call this an off night.
Service was a little slow. Server was also very soft spoken, to the point it was hard to hear at times. Food and atmosphere were great though.
I lived in southern Nevada for 46 years prior and was exposed to some of the finest cuisine and
chefs, in the world. Baxters would fit right into that environment with ease. The big difference
between the two above mentioned locations is, of course, the pricing. I paid less then $60.00
for a meal that would have cost $125.00 minimum in Las Vegas. Excellent food, great service
and comfortable environment. Definitely coming back, glad I found such a gourmet delight in
the Midwest and am recommending this restaurant to everyone. Thank you Baxter's for being
here. I would change the pudding cake ice cream from chocolate to french vanilla as
chocolate just doesn't fit the awesome taste of the dessert. Tommy R.
We were looking for a great steak dinner and found it here. We've been to Baxters before and had other good food here but never had tried the steak. We both had the ribeye (12 oz and 16 oz) with salad and potatoes side. The steaks were done to absolute perfection! Very enjoyable and satisfying meal.
I have dined many times at Baxter's over the years. It is always consistently good and has a diverse menu which satisfies every person's tastes.
Great food and service. Nice ambiance with low lighting and not too loud for conversation. Presentation and plating of the food was fantastic. We've been to Baxter's only a few times mainly due to cost, but we will be back.
The food was amazing and the waitress was nice but too aggressive- checking back too often. It felt as if she wanted us gone! I think she was just young and maybe new.
Prime rib was amazing and the mahi mahi was good. Great place for a quiet dinner without the kids
Baxter’s never disappoints. My friend had a yummy bowl of potato soup while I enjoyed s salad and Italian beef sandwich which was excellent
It was a busy night, but my food wasn't super warm when it came it me. The scallops and shrimp were good, but I just would have preferred my pasta warmer.
This was my first time dining at Baxter’s and I cannot say enough great things about our meal. The appetizer was amazing!!!! The drinks were unique and so tasty!!! The Entre’s were filling and could possibly be one of the best meals I have had. Thank you so much for a great night!
The experience was okay. I’m a frequent patron of Baxter’s. This particular time we did not receive the best service from the waitress. It was quite disappointing. Considering we were there for a birthday celebration.
Our waiter was great! Just the right amount of service, if you know what I mean.
We girls just got to talk the night away.
The food is always wonderful.
