We arrived at about 5-10 minutes before our reservation. I went to the hostess stand to check in. The person who greeted me at the hostess stand stated that they didn't open until 2pm. However, they had just called me two days prior to confirm my reservation. The person who greeted me and the manager were both quite rude. After clearing up the confusion, we were seated, and the rest of the meal was fine. However, they should not greet customers that way and should actually know what time they open.

Night before Universityh of Illinois graduation, and the entire facility was packed, inside and outside seating as well as the bar. The noise level was high as might be expected, the our waitress was quite friendly and promptly waited on us. Even as packed as it was, management was ready for the crowd, and had ample staff. Drinks and food arrived pretty quickly, all prepared perfectly as ordered. Waitress checked on us often, but never tried to rush us. Glad this restaurant is in Champaign-Urbana!

Arrived at 140 and was told that they had a buffet going until 2 but I could eat until 215. When someone called to confirm my reservation, I was not informed that this was happening. I would have made the reservation for an earlier time or not at all. After being seared and told how much the meal was, my wife and I decided to leave because it made no sense to try and eat in 30 minutes. I have been here before and loved the food which is why I wanted to go back. Needless to say our disappointment level was very high.

First, Cody’s service was phenomenal and the Miso Glazed Salmon, shrimp cocktail, and Baxter’s salad was oh so delicious. As I grew up here, there aren’t many 5 star restaurants but this one is. I’m so glad I picked this establishment to celebrate my 52nd birthday. Next time I visit from Atlanta, I’ll be back.

The only flaw was that they seemed to have placed the tables to maximize number of people to fit in the restaurant and if you were larger than a twig it was difficult to move around the tables to get to the buffet line.

However, the service was terrible. I made a reservation and upon arrival I was seated in the bar area. NCAA championship game was on and it was loud. I wasn't expecting that. Next the waitress was either too busy or simply did care to take care of our table. Her excuse, she is new. Overall, get your food to go, You might enjoy it more. Don't order the butter cake. They served it cold and it taste like crunchy sugar. Ask for reservations in the dining room if you want to have a conversation without speaking loudly.

However, I booked dinner reservations months in advance. When we arrived (on time) we seated at a high table in the bar, not the dining room. I was confused so reminded the attendant we had a reservation. She snapped at me and said she knew and that everyone at the bar tables also had a reservation. WTF? I don’t book a reservation at a restaurant like that to sit in the bar with my family. I don’t know if they simply overbooked or just wanted to fill their restaurant, but to me, they should not be putting groups with reservations in the bar. Also, the sauce for the calamari is horrible. It’s literally marinara sauce from a jar. Have they ever heard of aioli sauce?

Our food was quite tasty and the service was excellent. Our waitperson checked on us several times without being obtrusive. I'd like to see more meals in the $20-$30 range. There were a variety of offerings below $20, and many in the $30-$40 range.

When we travel through Champagne we choose Baxters for our dining experience….unfortunately, this time there was a snafu. The table next to us had an eight year old girl on an iPad and had SpongeBob at a loud volume through most of our dinner. No headphones! Uffda. It was truly annoying. I almost said something to our lovely waitress but decided against it. Idk…. Seems like electronic devises must have headphones to use. Just something to think about….

I sat there for an hour and 45 minutes and my server had visited a total of 4 times. Our server was named Seth, which I only got from looking at the receipt. He took our order, gave us an appetizer, gave us our food, and picked up the check. The manager had to give us our check after I had been clearly sitting with empty plates for over 35 minutes by now. I had ordered a medium well filet mignon, which came out rare. I couldn’t even send it back because the server had ignored us for so long, that it was just getting cold. The server had repeatedly visited the tables right next to us multiple times, but did not come to see us at all. When the manager asked if we needed anything, I replied the check please, we’ve been waiting a really long time, and she didn’t even think to ask about the food, service, why we had waited so long, or apologize.
