Been going to Baxter's since the early 70's. Best seafood around the area. The menu is mostly seafood because that's what their specialty is. It's a lively place with a lot of charm. Wait staff are superb and hussle to get you your drinks. It's the same now as it was in 1974. You can dock your boat and join... More

Located on Pleasent Street, it is a little out of the way unless you are using the Steamship to go to the Islands you may have a hard time discovering this gem of a place to get the best fish going. This is a seasonal eatery so you will have to visit in the summer but it is right on... More

The food is fresh, they serve fats, you get to choose between sitting inside, outside with a view to the port and the lighthouse, or in the restaurant. We started going to Baxter's quite a few years ago, when they also had an extension on a decommissioned boat - there are pictures of that inside. Totally worth a visit!

This is the place for great seafood. Done out on the wharf. In fact, the entire restaurant is built over the water. It started in 1919, as a fish packing house and has evolved into the present day restaurant. President Kennedy used to get his fish at Baxters.

We took a morning Hyannis harbor cruise and then went for lunch at Baxter. We ate indoors, but there is outdoor seating. I had the seafood platter. The service was prompt and friendly and the food was good. I would go again.
