Meet me at the Corner Restaurant!
If you are an avid Norfolk Admirals Hockey Fan or spend any amount of time in the Downtown Area of Norfolk, then you are probably familiar with Baxter’s Restaurant.
The restaurant sits on a corner about 2 city-blocks away from The Norfolk Scope, and is often a gathering spot for all the fans before big games during the regular Hockey Season.
When you walk up to the restaurant, you will see places for outdoor seating, along the sidewalk. In the warmer months, it is no surprise to see folks hanging around outdoors, enjoying a meal with friends, or sharing stories after a long week over a drink.
Inside, there are TVs along every stretch of wall space, and even a few hanging ones in the center sections of the seating area.
The wait staff is friendly, quick and welcoming. Usually a hostess will seat you when you walk in, during busy times.
It’s typical before a Hockey game to find the restaurant in a standing room only capacity, or with many tables pushed together for large groups who are saving seats for late-coming friends. Most of the time, there are specials available for you to choose from, as well as the ability to select from a wide variety of items on their menu.
With a full bar, you can also choose from a myriad of beers on tap or order you favorite mixed drink.
During Football Season, Baxter’s Restaurant can become entertaining, as the sounds of cheering fans carries throughout the restaurant, allowing you to know when there are happy fans nearby!
With so many TVs, it’s a great place to hang out with a group of friends and take in a game in a fun and entertaining environment. Parking along the streets can be a little difficult to get, but there are parking decks nearby which charge reasonable rates.
