Absolute best food and wonderful atmosphere! Would love to visit again.
Always wonderful meals. Service is excellent. April was a great server.
Excellent food and service! We went for my husband's birthday and our waiter was very nice and helpful.
Always great, we eat here every time we are at the lake, 1 to 2 times per month, our favorite!
We had a reservation and when we arrived asked for an outside table. Although there were several available we were seated inside. No explanation. The item I ordered for lunch was not available. Service was adequate but not very personable.
Fantastic food and service. The bartenders are great, especially Dylan. Couldn’t ask for a more enjoyable dinner experience !! A++
The food was amazing. The view was spectacular and the service was top notch! It was our first time to eat there and we will be back for sure!
Baxter's Grill is a great place to eat. The food and service is excellent.
Thank you for the delicious piece of birthday Cheese cake!! Dinner was wonderful
As always, excellent experience!
Although the food did not come out in the correct order and my salad was incorrect, the food was delicious! The server was aware of the mistake and was willing to correct the salad mistake, which I declined. And she apologized for the salads coming out before the appetizers. A dessert was brought out for my friends birthday, which was a nice surprise, but we were charged for it. We didn't complain because it was cheesecake and delicious! My friend has been here and absolutely loved the place. I'm certain we will be back when we are in the area again.
Excellent birthday dinner! The waiter unexpectedly took our photo and printed it off in a nice card for us to take home - a nice touch!
Went for our anniversary and without asking they set us by a window to view sunset. Additionally they took and printed a picture for is amd delivered us a piece of cake on the house. Never had to ask. Those actions go a long way to me. Very polite staff and served quickly. Food was very presentable and above average. Plenty on the menu to chose from. If I lived in the area I would definitely be a frequent visitor. Great atmosphere and experience.
Great, as always! Great table!!!
We celebrated our 40th anniversary at Baxter's. We were seated promptly at our reservation time. Service, food and the view were all outstanding! Complimentary cheesecake for our anniversary was a pleasant surprise! All in all, Baxter's was fantastic!
The food was excellent, the service impeccable and the view unrivaled! I had the Blackened Mahi and the dish was perfectly prepared. Our server made such a great effort to make my birthday dinner special. Terrific experience!
Great atmosphere and views of the lake, great tasting shrimp cocktail, great ribeye, and the blue cheese potatoes are awesome!
We had an evening reservation and were seated about 15 mins after out time. Was seated in one of their 90 degree angle boots with 2 on each side - not of fan of that layout. Waitress was good - she new the menu, was friendly and just the right amount of attention. Food was disappointing for the venue and cost... their halibut
special was way over-cooked (dry and tough)... maybe the worst prepared halibut I've ever had at a restaurant... the rest of the meal was good for myself and the table. Cocktails were good.
Food was excellent
Great! Nice location, awesome view, great waiter, and super tasty food.
Unexpectedly delicious food and the view of the lake is spectacular!!
Outstanding place. Great location. Good value. :-)
I've eaten at Baxter's a few times over the years, but this time the food and service were outstanding. I was concerned with staff shortages everywhere, but the place was clean and staff very pleasant. We were one of the firsts that day and was able to sit on the patio overlooking the lake. It was a lovely experience!
First time at Baxters. Will come back when in the area.
The whole experience was great. We're repeat customers. The steak and lobster were AMAZING! No sauce or butter required to make those items phenomenal.
Beautiful views. Great service. Wonderful food. What is not to like?
Always expect the best & we’re not disappointed with the service or food. Celebrated our anniversary & loved getting our picture to remember our special day
It was amazing as always .one of our favorite restraints .
Very nice staff, table was ready at reservation time, food was really good
For the cost there food was average at best. Have had better meals in the area at a fraction of the price. Steak was great. Fish average and overcooked. Much of the food was bland.
As always the best restaurant at the lake and the Midwest! We never miss eating here when we are at the lake!!
We had a reservation issue but they made it up to us! Great service by Elle and hostess! Cajun pasta , wedge salad , meatloaf are all great!
Amazing and the most perfect meal and service we’ve ever encountered!
Always a good, I hsd the filet, with a bacon shallot sauce, sliced potatoes, apparagus, and salad, my companion had tilapia, amd it was excellent. Best view of the lake too.
Food and service is always spot on!! Highly recommend!
My not 4 stars was because I didn’t think the chef special that night was all that special. Wagu ribeye was no better to me than any other ribeye at a good steakhouse. For $50 I would’ve thought melt in your mouth. It was good but not worth $50. Sorry. All other aspects of the dining experience was A-1.
Excellent meal! Excellent service!
Great service, great server, great food.
