We had our small wedding and reception their this past weekend and Natalie and her staff were outstanding. She went above and beyond our expectations at every turn. Anyone looking to have a small intimate Wedding should have it here. Thank you to Natalie and the Baxter's... Read More staff for making our day something to remember! Thank You!

I cannot express how happy we were with our small wedding at Baxters! This fact has become even more obvious while attempting to work with other venues for our larger celebration/reception in St. Louis. Natalie and Ashley went above and beyond; always willing and prepared to... Read More answer questions quickly and willing to offer up what they thought would work best in their opinions but always willing to listen and adjust to our liking as well. Their responses were always very timely, often in the same day. We held a small private ceremony on the patio (in the middle of winter) and then a family style sit down dinner reception in the back room. After dinner we opened up the space for a place to mingle with local friends that wanted to drop by for drinks. The food is amazing, everyone was impressed and stuffed! My spouse and I are rather picky and all of our requests were met with understanding and quickly customized to meet our needs. The wait staff the day of our event was the perfect balance of attentive and respectful of our privacy. We wish every venue was as great as Baxters! Thank you so much for truly making it the best day ever, Alex & Diana Thomas

Amazing Service

We came to Baxter's Catering with only two months left until our wedding after struggling with a different caterer. We wanted to do something different and had appetizer stations set up around the reception. We received so many compliments on the food! Natalie and Ashley, the... Read More event coordinators were always extremely prepared, willing to answer questions, suggested different ideas, set up personalized tastings, and worked amazingly well with our wedding planner and the venue coordinator so that I didn't have to. The food was amazing and they actually brought a chef out to the venue to prepare the food there. The cost was extremely reasonable and comparable to other catering companies but the quality could not be better. I would highly recommend Baxter's for any event and am extremely happy with our decision.

Everything was great.. There was only a few concerns.. A lot of guests didn't like the green beans they were hard and crunchy.. Also I guest of mine was offered another pork dinner on top of his chicken dinner why wasn't I asked about this first( not happy with that) he had also... Read More asked for his wedding cake to be put in a to go box and had another piece of cake added.. Not sure why..??? I just think if that is going to be offered bride and groom should have been asked first.. Maybe wanted family to have extras not boyfriend of a guest..bride and groom should have been offered left overs from guest plates that didn't come to wedding... Thanks

Perfect meal!

The event staff was very easy to work with. The food was excellent and the bar service was exactly what we asked for. Excellent shrimp cocktail and gooey butter cake to die for!

There was a wide selection to choose from as to how you wanted your dinner. They put us in a private dining room with our own wait staff. They worked with us on our centerpieces as well as providing us with a projection screen. The service was spectacular as well as the food!
