About Captain Baxter

Sit back, put your sunnies on and feel the sea breeze at Captain Baxter in St Kilda. 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. Sporting a light, bright look inspired by tropical beach bungalows of the 1920s, the retractable roof brings guests even closer to the ocean as they sip a signature cocktail. Start with a crab and koji crumpet, Kewpie, radish and shiso, or beef tartare, nam jim, tarragon, anchovy and taro; before larger plates like lamb shoulder, Crying Tiger sauce, labneh and fries with garlic mayo. Salivate over Wagyu skirt steak, wasabi butter, beef jus and fried onion, making sure to leave room for dark chocolate mousse, coconut ice cream and peanut brittle.

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.
