It was awesome we were glad to get off Destin this Labor Day weekend. Food was phenomenal, it was a little loud in there but that was mainly due to a really drunk table behind us!

Basil and Baxter's is an island of sane and normal in the midst of COVID Crazyville. I felt like a valued customer and not a criminal because I did not wear a mask. I could also see my server's face and exchange smiles with her. I will go back very soon.

When we first arrived we were like “this is the nice restaurant we drove an hour for?” Very plain, nondescript building. However, the inside is decorated very cute. Tables were spaced well for social distancing. The service was fantastic, very attentive! And the food was great. All 8 of us left full and satisfied!

You won’t go wrong with this restaurant! The Mediterranean salad was absolutely out of this world! The avalanche beers were delicious! Bases in Baxter’s is the best!

An excellent steak dinner...good wine...and great service. What could have made Valentine's Day better? Nothing! We enjoyed our evening immensely and it reinforced our positive view of Basil and Baxter's. This was our first try at the steaks and while we ordered both the Ribeye and the NY Strip Blackberry Cabernet, and agreed both were excellent (and cooked EXACTLY as requested), we both also agreed that the Blackberry Cabernet sauce should be offered over everything!
We've taken friends to dine here in the past and will continue to do so, but we now know we can have a fancy or casual dinner on our own. And although we didn't have them this visit, the aioli fries are to die for!
