Due to hot weather & hot house decided to eat out. No airconditioning to bistro area at Baxter Tavern. Very sticky, humid & uncomfortable. Staff very apologetic & also apparently suffering from hot conditions. Forced to relocate into main bar area to eat meals with tradies & tabaret machines & sports TV. Meals great. C'mon owner & management get it fixed or replaced!!!

I recently drove down from Queensland to spend some time with my mother over Christmas and due to the convenient location I stayed at the tavern. The room was clean and functional and serviced every day . The staff were fantastic so helpful and obliging and in particular the restaurant staff who managed to find us a table on Christmas day for lunch . A fantastic day food and service spot on. The were a number of meals eaten over the three days and all were excellent and again so were the staff. I will definitely stay there again when I next come down for a visit . Thanks again for a great few days.

I was at the Baxter Tavern last Wednesday 4th December (Seafood night) and ordered salt and pepper calamari. It tasted like it was straight out of a frozen container. The meal was so ordinary that I should've had it taken back. Also the salads need changing as they are the same boring, ordinary salads they've had for years. I doubt very much I'll ever go back. The Langwarrin Hotel is a much better pub.

We had an absolutely WOEFUL experience. I ordered a 500 gram rib eye steak, and my girlfriend ordered some pasta dish. As we waited and continually hearing number 99 being called out for 30 minutes we decided to ask what was going on with our meals. We were number 98 but our meals were being called out under 99. we spoke to the waitress who went and got the manager who apolisged for misunderstanding and said it was their fault. Pleased that they acknowdeging wrong we were shocked that he said they wouldn't make us new meals even though my $32 piece of meat was cold and the cream on my girlfriends pasta had gone hard. We complained further and further and but the manager said all we were doing was getting our food colder and ruining everyone else's dining experience. He decided that he would remake her pasta and my chips but not the steak. Crazy! All I wanted at this stage was my money back so I could get some McDonalds, he refused and refused some more. Finally he agreed to remake the meals, yet all he did was microwave $60 worth of food and ask me for an apology for "making a scene" He had not realised I had made a large cut in the steak to make sure that they didn't just microwave the steak but 5 minutes later, out back it came, a big bit of overpriced steak, microwaved, with a huge incision in it. I brought it back and again asked for my money back with no success. He acknowledged the big cut but said all their chefs cut the steak to make sure it is cooked right!!! Either he is lying (which he is) or he has incompetent chefs who cant cook. Please go to the next pub down the road, this place is an absolute joke and the manager is a disgrace.

I last dined at the Baxter Tavern on the 29/11/2012 Some reviewers seem very biased and one sided and the most part forgetting they are eating at a Tavern/Pub you cant expect Jamie Oliver to bring out your meal with Eric Bana's sense of humor. Your not eating at the press club so don't compare the two its like trying to compare a Mercedes to a Holden, its just not right. All analogies aside. My family have been dining at the Baxter tavern once a month for 3-4 years now, I can honestly say compared to other pubs in the area, this is above most, It is very ambient with 2 open fires burning brightly. The bar is fair - good value, Jugs of beer are $12. We have always had good meals, again I wouldn't say their excellent but value for money is defiantly the case. I come most nights for the American Style pork ribs. $25 for 3 Racks of ribs with a side of chips, considering how much pork ribs are to buy from a butcher, this is great value, I have payed north of $35 for a smaller meal. Pizza's are excellent and the steaks are usually cooked correctly.None the less, I adore dining at the Tavern, I usually throw $10 on the pokies and before you know your meal usually takes no more than 15-20 minutes ( a well cooked steak will take up to 30 min ) but we are always informed that before we confirm the order. Yes the line is rather large to line up at peak time, which is usually 6:30 - 7:30 roughly. I would suggest a second counter to speed up the process and trim the ordering line from obscuring a main walkway to the bar. If you appreciate great food at very decent prices you can overlook the cons and just enjoy yourself. I can honestly say I have never left without being dissapointed. Remember its a Tavern. Peace x
