I had perhaps the BEST grouper I've ever had here. A thick slab of fish that was grilled perfectly to flake but not be dry, served in a lemon butter sauce that enhanced -- not drowned --the fish. OMG. It was SO good.

Took the family for a nice meal. Steaks were very good and cooked as we liked. Shrimp were large and nicely prepared. Service was good and the restaurant was quiet and nicely lite. Prices were a bit higher than expected but not than home.

After reading some of the reviews on Trip Advisor, we almost decided to pass on Baxter's... so glad we didn't! "Hungry" for Burgers... we decided to give Baxter's a try. My husband and I both had burgers, served up any way you want them. Delish......More

This place was designated the best steakhouse on Amelia Island for 10 years in a row. That said, we were in the mood for seafood. We had the blackened shrimp and the seafood platter. No skimping on the portions here and very tasty, Oh... the...More
