About Captain Baxter

Sit back, put your sunnies on and feel the sea breeze as Captain Baxter re-opens in St Kilda after a stunning renovation. This iconic destination in the Sea Baths Complex has been Melbourne's go-to venue for lunch under the sun, drinks at sundown and relaxed dining for many years. Now sporting a light, bright look inspired by tropical beach bungalows of the 1920s, the revamp includes a retractable roof bringing guests even closer to the ocean as they sip a cocktail. Start a culinary cruise with Vietnamese raw beef, fermented chilli and betel leaf, before larger plates such as grain fed Black Angus with miso mustard and pepper sauce. Salivate over a taste of the sea plate with oysters, mussels and crustaceans; making sure to leave room for dark chocolate and peanut tart with salted caramel.

The setting/view is just the start of this awesome venue. Three cheers to the crew from Albury Wodonga for an innovative menu, well trained and attentive staff and drinks that are served with skill and diligence!!


Great location and food. Refreshingly new range of cocktails. 'The Captain' sneaks up on you! Staff are so friendly and happy. Great vibe.
