Asked for steak medium well it came out rare, I ended up just taking it home and finished cooking it. Otherwise it was ok, might be awhile before we go back
This is a restaurant which we visit with regularity. The food was very good and our waitress, April provided us with good service. However, this is the second time that in which we made a request to have a table in the section served by our favorite waitress. It is the second time in which we were seated in another section. We understand that our request might not always be able to be honored but it would have been nice if the hostess would have told us that when we checked in rather than make us ask why we had a different waitress.
Reservation was ready when we arrived. Waiter was was excellent.
Spinach salad with salmon was excellent. Burger was THE BEST my husband has ever had. Ribeye was cooked to perfection and delicious! Highly recommend.
In addition to our great meal and service, we were able to enjoy a beautiful sunset.
Birthday for mother in law!
Sadly expectations were distinctly missed, the crab cake starter and sea scallops main course was quite bland and tasteless. The Ahi tuna starter and the cheesecake was the only reason it wasn't a one star review. Nicole was our server at be she was excellent.
Great atmosphere, delicious food. Our server, Elly, was fabulous.
Food was excellent, prices were excellent and the view was spectacular, cousins have had any better service
Very disappointing experience. One that we don’t typically experience at Baxter’s. Slow service to sub par food and wine that was 2017 on the menu but 2018 when delivered.
Wonderful meal for a date night out.
I can’t say it enough. Baxter’s is our go to every time we’re at the lake. The food is fantastic and the staff is the best. ❤️
We celebrated my daughter’s birthday and everything was fabulous. The food and the service were unbeatable and we all had the best experience at Baxter’s. This is why Baxter’s is our favorite restaurant!
We are regular customers for several years. The food and service was outstanding as always. Ellie was our excellent server always on top of everything!!
Great food and service
Amazing view! Great presentation and ambiance. Waiter was the best.
Great service, delicious lunch, and beautiful view.
Best Food at the Lake. Never disappoints, and terrific view. Good selections of wine and nice smooth experience every time.
Wonderful experience. Food is fantastic- well prepared and well presented. Look forward to our next meal at Baxter's.
Excellent food. Excellent service. Great ambiance. Will certainly go again. Chloe was an outstanding server.
This will be our 10th or 11th year in a row celebrating our anniversary at Baxter’s . Every year it’s a incredible experience. Thank you all and keep doing what your doing.
Top shelf service and meal
Thank you for making our family night out enjoyable! It’s always great to dine with you all. Food and drinks were delicious as always!
Went to Baxter's with an other couple because it is one of our go to places. We noticed prices had jumped up significantly, probably because of COVID related issues.
Food was very good, the atmosphere was great, and the staff attentive. They never forgot it was our anniversary.
Great restaurant for a special occasion. Food is first class. Service is usually good.
This is our #1 'Go To' for any special occasion.
You cannot beat the food, the ambience, the hospitality and service. The chef makes dinner items available at lunch time and Baxters always do everything to make your occasion extra special. My one criticism at all is too much salt. Being on a low-sodium diet you really can tell. Anyone can add salt and pepper, but it cannot be taken out. Please kindly cut it down.
We have already two more bookings for Christmas and the New Year and look forward to it very much. We love being able to purchase the gift cards.
Ashley is a great hostess and I love other waitresses coming up when they recognize you too making one feel welcome and wanted.
Simply put - why go anywhere else (and yes, we have tried and they have failed!)
We were celebrating a birthday. The service was excellent and they included a photo of our family to commemorate the occasion.
We enjoy eating at Baxter’s on occasion. Beautiful water views.
Reservations were made weeks in advance, requested a table next to the window for a good view as were were celebrating a special night. We were sat next to the server station, no view, there were multiple times were someone in the group got up and we felt like we were in the severs way. Because servers were huddled around this station. I had ordered a glass of white wine, then my husband ordered a bottle of red to share amongst the table. The waitress then poured red wine into my glass filled with white. Food was great, service was meh and the table seating was a disappointment
Baxter's continues to be one of the best restaurant's in the region. Attention to detail is maintained at all levels and the food is always great. You can't go wrong no matter the occasion.
Food and service were great as usual. Beautiful view of the lake even with a few clouds.
Every time we go to Baxter’s we are treated special. The host keeps us informed on when our table will be ready and asks if we can wait an extra minute so they can seat us at a nice table by a window or if we’d rather be seated right away. The shrimp cocktail is always fantastic with huge shrimp and delicious cocktail sauce with horseradish and the Caesar salad is so fresh and delicious.
absolutely love baxters. Their seabass is the best
Excellent food, service, and ambiance. The manager takes great pride in serving his customers.
The view is incredible, the service is awesome, the food is delicious no matter what you order and the drink menu is fun and different! It’s our go to restaurant at the lake!
Wonderful experience! The food and service were top-notch!
Everything I ordered was excellent! My friend with me however didn’t get what she wanted but just kept what she was brought. Only disappoint was no cinnamon I cream for the gooey butter!
Got our table right at our reserved time like always. Never have anything bad to say about Baxters!
