    My fiancé and I love going to Baxter’s for the occasional date night. Our latest visit, we had another couple join us and they enjoyed their first time dining there. I always get the Baxter’s salad and filet kabobs and my fiancé always gets the mixed greens salad and smothered grilled chicken. We have never had a bad meal or experience at Baxters and we will return!

    Easy close parking, large, very reasonably priced menu, experienced wait and bar staff, perfectly prepared dishes, and prompt service, including from bar. Only complaint was noise level, dining area was full, music level was turned too high, conversations at our table required loud speaking. Everything considered, Baxter’s is the best fine dining restaurant!

    The ribeye steak was juicy and delicious. I ordered medium rare, and the doneness was perfect. Although Champaign is far from the sea, the shrimp cocktail was also very tasty with large shrimp.

    Quality of our food was good. However the serving sizes are not worth the price, especially the sides. Sides should come as part of a meal. We did enjoy celebrating our son's birthday but check total was a bit much.

    We have been to Baxters a few times in the past year, but had not been there for a while. This time, instead of each ordering a main dish, we took a lot of starters and shared them among us. We found this to be a much better experience: the starters are more unique and very well prepared. At least to us, this seems to be what distinguishes Baxters from the other restaurants in its class.

    Okay would be the best way to describe this restaurant. Everything was just okay. Nothing special, but nothing to complain about either. It was an extremely busy night, and I have had much better experiences at the restaurant before. It was good enough I would go back and give them another shot.

    Birthday Girl dinner. Jambalaya was good especially after asking the waitress to ask the Chef to tone down the spice to moderate. Filet was great; sides and salad were good. Reni was a good and pleasant server...All good.

    It’s ok… Entrees were rather good, service - friendly and attentive, albeit very casual (not a problem), but salads were disappointing as they clearly came from a bag. This restaurant needs to step up their game on salads to be in the same league as Hamilton Walker which is another local steakhouse we’ve been to before. Pricing was more reasonable than Hamilton Walker’s but price/quality for salads just didn’t work. Deserts were great.
