Baxters on Main

Baxters on Main won many honors in The Bastrop Advertiser/The Smithville Time’s “Best of Bastrop” for 2010. They won first place for Best Restaurant and runner-up for Best Seafood, Best Desserts, Best Caterer, and Best Waitress (Kimberly Smith). Owned by Teri Knop, Baxters on Main opened in May 2003. They pride themselves in providing the absolute finest cuisine in central Texas. The dinner specialties include filet mignon, seabass, firecracker salmon, and their famous creme brulee. If you’re looking for excellent food (steaks cooked to perfection!) in a casual yet refined atmosphere, then look no further than Baxters on Main.

Besides great food, they have beautiful decor. Baxters on Main sets the bar for historic Bastrop, the perfect blend of cozy 19th century charm and high-class, modern touches. In my opinion, the red brick wall says it all–historic, stylish, small-town comfort and charm. Speaking of history, the building was originally owned by Louiz Eilers and was thought to have been a grocery and dry good store. Later, it was turned into a slaughter house and sales market, and a barbeque restaurant was added.

Baxters on Main serves lunch from 11am-2:30pm and dinner from 5-9pm, although the bar opens at 4pm for daily happy hour specials. They also cater off-site events. For more information, visit
