Baxters American Grille
Food and service were amazing! I had the shrimp and scallop scampi and my husband had the Brazilian steak kabobs and both were delicious. Our waiter was very attentive.
Service in the front of the place was exceptional. Very accommodating and polite. Waiter was fine. Food was good overall. Very large New York Strip steaks. The sides (mushrooms and asparagus) were just okay. I ordered prosecco and it came in a very large red wine glass, not a flute, which seemed strange. We really enjoyed the atmosphere.
A really nice restaurant with a great variety to choose from!
Best little gem in Bloomington. Glad I found it on Open Table!
Excellent service and very tasty meal.
My husband and I went for our anniversary and had the best experience. We made a reservation but had drinks and an app at the bar beforehand. There was some live music in the bar that was great background but not too loud. We had dinner in the dining room and it was delicious! My husband loved his steak and my salmon was cooked perfectly. To top it all off, our server brought us a complimentary gooey butter cake as an anniversary perk. We can’t wait to go back!
Our first time to Baxter’s was excellent. Our waiter Sam made the evening that much more enjoyable. Will return next time in the area.
Great atmosphere. Varied dining options. The food is delicious. Service very prompt.
Great birthday celebration for my wife’s special dinner...
Great service and great food!
Service was ok, but a lot of wait time. Food was average at best. Had been recommended for the steaks, but did not meet expectations. Have had better elsewhere for less money. Probably not return.
Yet another great dining experience. Ribeye was awesome.
As usual our dinner at Baxter's American Grille was very good. Our waiter was very friendly and efficient and our food arrived in a timely manner and was warm and delicious as usual. I would highly recommend that others go to Baxter's American Grille and enjoy the ambiance, great food and wonderful service.
The restaurant is nice; however, the lighting was extremely dim.
My husband and I love to go to Baxter’s for special occasions. This past Friday was our wedding anniversary and third time there. I love prime rib and I had it there once before. This time the meat wasn’t seasoned as well as the first time. It needs some garlic and perhaps some rosemary. Other than that our dinner was very nice.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this place!! thank you for all your wonderful service and making our experience so wonderful! DRUNKEN MUSHROOMS??!!! Holy cow!! so good! Many thanks...
A great place to eat that is not a chain restaurant. Food was excellent. Service was superior.
You must try the “drunken mushrooms”. My friend and I thought they were the best stuffed mushrooms we’d ever had. The shrimp and scallop scampi I had was delicious. Baxter’s is a very nice restaurant with a menu that has a great variety of dishes to try.
We absolutely love Baxter’s. We have never been disappointed in our many visits. We have taken out of town guests there and it’s always a repeat visit when they come back.
First time I have gone to Baxter’s, the food was amazing from the appetizer all the way to dessert! Will be going back soon!!
Excellent service and delicious food. Large number of food offerings satisfied our picky eaters. Steak was cooked perfectly.
Nice restaurant, food is quite good, try it.
Our server Evan was great! Very timely and courteous. I enjoyed the tender ribs. Husband got special MAhi MAhi. The flavor was good, but fish was pretty dry. It was a birthday celebration so we enjoyed free Gooey Butter Cake. It is so rich but SO good! Perfect portion to split with another.
Great service. We were treated with very pleasant folks who were most attentive. Your staff was superb. Whoever is in charge of training and supervising them deserves a huge raise.
Menu was good. We enjoyed 4 different items, and no one complained, and were mostly complimentary.
Our Open Table reservations were handled just as they should have been.
It's a 60 mile drive from Champaign-Urbana to visit this Baxter's, but it's WAY, WAY better than the Baxter's in Champaign. Sure wish you'd fix that.
This was our first time at this location. We all felt the lighting was a bit dark.
We had friends from Chicago visit and we wanted to choose a good place. They liked everything about Baxter's. He had the halibut and she had shrimp tacos. The beet salad was tasty.
The service here is the worst I’ve ever experienced. Waited for 30 minutes for our wine. We were almost finished our appetizer when it came. Waited forever for our salads that arrived at the same time as our main course.
The manager did come over and apologize and offer us deserts on the house. We ordered one desert and waited forever for it. It wasn’t worth the wait.
The food was mediocre at best.
I will never come back or recommend to anyone
Great food and great service! Extremely clean. Staff was very friendly
Excellent service is the norm, and Brian achieved this (even though he was supervising a prospective addition to the waitstaff). Food preparation and presentation is always above average (I had the jambalaya which is savory but spicy, with just the right allocation to seafood and sausage). Family had the skewers as they generally do -- and again, very well prepared. I'm a fan of Baxters prime rib, but alas, it was Sunday and prime rib is available only Friday and Saturday evenings.
Great chow! Eric our server was a consummate professional. Advised them through advised them we were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary and they provide us with a fabulous desert we’ll be back. P. S. House cab was really good.
Our meal was delicious and our server, Claire was great!
Overall experience was great, food was great, sangria was great. I think our waiter was newer, he was slow to refill waters and forgot to bring us a basket of bread until we asked. Otherwise no other problems. I had the bistro fried chicken and it was the best chicken I’ve had in a restaurant.
great place to kick back with friends and family and just enjoy the atmosphere of the dining room with great cocktails and drinks. The food was nicely presented and hot and very well seasoned. I enjoy spending an evening here even through the week.
Anniverary dinner. Had reservations at 6:45 and had no wait at all. Very nice. We really like the atmosphere at Baxter's. It's one of our favorite places. I ordered the special which was Philly Cheese filiet. It was cooked perfectly, but I was not overwhelmed with the sauce. Glad I tried it but would probably not order again. Husband had prime rib and it was perfect.
The food was delicious and the server was very helpful.
Celebrating with a friend for her 50th birthday. It was perfect.
We came back to BLM for a visit and returned to one of our favorite restaurants., Baxters. The dinner turned out so disappointing. When I took my first bite of my salad I bit down into something so hard I thought that it had broken my tooth. Our steaks were ordered medium temperature and were served medium rare. They took the steaks back to correct and then the kitchen forgot to reheat the potatoes which were now cold. The manager comped the steaks and salad, which was the right thing to do. But, why did one of our favorite restaurants kitchen fail so bad?
The food was exceptional and the service was outstanding
Best place for steak in town. Service was great and atmosphere was good. Had privacy which many new restaurants lack.
Ok food. Bread at the beginning was a bit stale tasting. Kind of bland food. Good, but bland. Really dark inside, and cheap candle for decor. Price did not reflect the quality of food. Go to Desthil if you are looking for a date night restaurant.
