Very impressive dinner spot! We came here for a wedding and stayed at Holiday inn, this restaurant is just next door. It is... perfect for a nice dinner after a long flight. The restaurant looks pretty nice with great interior decorations. I ordered amiso glazed salmon, my husband had a prime steak, both uncle and mom had pretzel bun burgers, and dad ordered a salad. All of usenjoyed our foods, we also loved our wine. It is a nice place for a date, business dinner or family hangout. Plus the service isnice too. Read more

Delicious food at good prices. My fiancé had the sirloin tip gnocchi and loved it, I had the chicken piccata and thought it was... perfect. It is very lemony and in my opinion, better than the piccata at Biaggi’s or Cheesecake Factory. Their signature saladwas great, if the onions were pickled it would be perfect. The gratin potatoes are very heavy and are meant for sharing. Webarely ate any but had them as leftovers the next day. Nothing particularly special about them but the potatoes were cooked to acorrect level of doneness. The white chocolate raspberry bread pudding was delicious, a definite must-have! We also got apretzel app and drinks, but I would pass on the pretzel (actually probably not get any apps) and get a different cocktail nexttime. The blackberry mojito was just okay. Overall, I’d say this is a great date night or celebration spot we will go to againsoon. Read more

Baxter's grille. Has a good menu with options for a lot of different tastes. My wife had sea bass, and I had shrimp. Started... with a really good old fashioned. They have a good whiskey selection. Staff was attentive and everything tasted great. Thebest part about this place is how the food consistency is very good. They must have a well trained kitchen staff. Read more

An upscale yet not-so-pricy place to enjoy with your evenings friends and family. The food has gotta be good otherwise I... wouldn’t have posted the snaps and reviews ???? Specialities are grilled steak and cocktails…And finally the pro tip, onWednesday, you can get the bar menu at a half price ???? Vanessa is the queen of the bar. She can always suggest the bestcombination for you. Read more

Baxter’s has always been our favorite restaurant in town. Last night both my husband’s and my entree were overdone. The... rolls were not fresh and the bread pudding was made from very stale breadcrumbs. The service was excellent and the atmospherewas wonderful. I know Covid has changed things, but I expect a little more from Baxter’s. Read more

The menu is very extensive for a Bloomington Normal restaurant. Weekends for prime rib, steak cut selection is good.. There is... something for everyone, within reason. Seafood executed well in central Illinois? Thank you! Fiancée had Parmesan crustedhalibut. I chose the blackened grouper with red beans and rice. Service was fantastic. Best experience, all-around, that Ihave had dining out since pandemic started Read more
