Captain Baxter Overview

A unique addition to St Kilda’s foreshore, enviably perched a stone’s throw from the sand at St Kilda Sea Baths, Captain Baxter gives new meaning to beachside dining with its tag line “Bar. Food. Mischief.” With a prime view, stripy outdoor banquettes, sun lounges and black umbrellas, Captain Baxter’s astroturfed deck provides an alfresco spot to kick back with cocktails, while large open windows and deep cobalt hues create an equally relaxed vibe indoors. Nibble at bar bites and grazing plates like sesame crusted yellowfin tuna with kewpie and wasabi and rockling fish dumplings with chilli black vinegar; or cure larger hunger pangs with heartier serves such as pork belly with pickled bok choy and red curry sauce. To sweeten the finish, delve into a cherry blossom cheesecake with lychees.

A few words from Captain Baxter

Captain Baxter will be closed from 14th May until early October.

Captain Baxter is getting all dolled up for summer. We are where we live, on the beach, and we have decided to give ourselves a huge beachside make-over this winter.

In the meantime, we will be taking Christmas Function enquiries info@captainbaxter.com.au or check out brother venue Republica, St Kilda Beach downstairs www.republica.net.au for restaurant or function bookings or sister venue Encore St Kilda www.encorestkilda.com.au for larger scale events.

We will be back with a whole new look, after winter. We look forward to seeing you then!


Best Known For
